Prayer puts God at your back but praise puts Him in your front.
Prayer gives you God’s backing but praise gives you His frontings.
If you want God’s backing, pray but if what you want is God’s fronting, praise!
In prayer God is backing you up but in praise God is fronting for you.
When God takes His position in the front all oppositions becomes disposed.
When God went ahead of them in praise the sea fled in response. Ps 114:1-8
With praise ahead of them they possessed all their inheritances.
With praise in place the walls of Jericho were displaced.
