Praise completes the collection of 150 psalms that comprise the longest book of the Bible. The word “praise” occurs in every one of the six verses—in fact, in every line of the psalm. It begins by saying where God is to be praised, then why God is to be praised, followed by four verses that direct how the praise is to be expressed. There is no time indicated as to when God is to be praised; but then there is the final verse summoning every creature with breath to praise the Lord. Since breathing takes place at every moment, perhaps the psalmist suggests that God be praised with every breath.

Today, allow your breathing to be praise, along with every word you express that fills the space about with your exhales. May many “Alleluias” be sweet smells of praise that flow from your heart.
