All you peoples, clap your hands, shout to God with cries of gladness.  – Ps 47:2

Reflection.  There are four kinds of prayer:  petition, thanksgiving, atonement, and adoration.  Adoration is the act of rejoicing in the Lord.  Adoration can be as silent as a sunset, or as loud and thundering as Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.”  Either way adoration feels good.

Prayer.  Be still, my soul, and let me praise my Lord and my God.
