What is a praise report?
A praise report is a summarized account of what the Father has done or is doing in your life, due to either your obedience to His Word or His infinite mercies.
It is a proclamation of the Father's awesome acts in your life; as such, it is an act of worship (just like singing).
How to share an effective praise report ?
Praise reports are not an opportunity to showcase spiritual heights attained or power wielded by either yourself or the vessel used for your deliverance. It is all about 'shouting out loud' the Father's beauty and the glory of the new birth. The Father would never share His glory with any man (Isaiah 42:8, Isaiah 48:11)
Praise reports are a summarised version of a miracle. They must be kept as precise and straight to the point as possible. In simpler terms, leave out all information that would not impair passing across the intended message.
Now, it is common for an individual to try many approaches in an attempt to get out of an unsavoury situation. Such individual may not be able to tell which of his actions led to the desired transformation. Hence, it is imperative that care is taken to identify, in the light of the Word, which actions taken are responsible for the deliverance. This is important because praise reports are meant to
teach how to replicate the same miracle (Hebrews 6:12).
A few thoughts:
The Father is not slow to respond; it only takes finding the right approach to get your desired answers.
The experiences of men do not validate the Word but rather the Word can change the experience of those who dare to believe
What happens when you share a praise report?
The hearers are inspired
Sharing your praise report strengthens those in a similar situation to what you were in (Hebrews 10:24). They realise the Father is also going to come through for them as they take the same steps you took; because God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34)
The miracle is multiplied
Jesus gave thanks and the fishes multiplied (Mathew 15: 32 – 37). When praise is given increase comes (Psalm 67: 5 - 6). Even so, whenever you share a praise report, by covenant principle (the law of association – see Proverbs 27:17 & John 6:63), such miracle (and similar) multiplies not only in your life but also in the life of those with whom you share it. by reason of
The miracle is perfected
Whenever a praise report is shared, the concerned miracle is perfected - if it is yet to be perfected (Luke 17:12 – 19). The best way to fast forward the full manifestation of any desired blessing is to celebrate what the Father has already done. A praise report (done right) can never diminish. It is bound to grow rapidly unto perfection (Malachi 2:2)
