Prayer Triggers to Help You Praise God

This August we’re using everyday objects and our surroundings to remind us to pray in specific ways. Each week we will have a different focus. In week 1 we turn our attention to the natural world and use it as a reminder to praise God. 

When you see the following aspects of nature, let them be a reminder — a trigger — for you to give God the praise he deserves.

A Sunrise or Sunset

When you see the sun rise or set, take this time as an opportunity to thank God for his faithfulness.

Use these words: 

From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, I will praise the name of the Lord for He has _________________________________. 
(Based on Psalm 113:3 NIV)


If you are near mountains, let the inspiring peaks be a reminder that God is rock-steady, reliable, and strong.

Use these words: 

I trust you God with _________________________________, because long before You gave birth to the earth and before the mountains were born, You have been from everlasting to everlasting, the one and only true God. 
(Based on Psalm 90:2 TPT)


When you see wild animals, sheep or cattle in a field, or simply your pets at home, be reminded you are more important than all other creatures on earth and God cares for you. 

Use these words: 

For all the animals of the forest are yours, and you own the cattle on a thousand hills. You know every bird in the mountains, and all the animals of the field are yours.

God, what are mere mortals that You should think about us, human beings that You should care for us? Yet yet You show your care for me in _________________________________ and You made us only a little lower than Yourself and crowned us with glory and honor.
(Based on Psalm 50:10-11 NLT and Psalm 8:4-5 NLT)


When you see the exquisiteness and the colors of blooming flowers, let it be a reminder to you to praise God for His faithfulness through a hard season.

Use these words:

Lord I praise You for being faithful in _________________________________ because, the winter is past, and the rains are over and gone. The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come, and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air.
(Based on Song of Songs 2:11-12 NLT)
