ATLANTA — Dr. Michael Youssef and Charisma House are pleased to announce the upcoming release of the 20th anniversary edition of “Empowered By Praise: Experiencing God’s Presence and Power When You Give Him Glory” on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.

Readers can expect Dr. Youssef to guide them into a richer understanding of admiration for God that will forever change their relationship with Him. Filled with practical, Scriptural guidance and stories from his own personal life, Youssef’s book explores the blessings, challenges, elements, and power of worship.

“Praise honors the Lord, but it also changes you—drawing you into His nearness, guiding you in your daily life, and opening the door to His power,” explains Youssef. The 20th anniversary edition provides powerful ways to give God glory that result in deeper spiritual growth and transformation.

Dr. Youssef notes, “Praise is our foremost means of inviting God to take up residence with us and to establish His presence, authority, and purpose in every aspect of our lives.”

“Empowered by Praise” is practical and personal as Dr. Youssef discusses the role of praise in his life. Referencing the real-life applications of our adoration, Dr. Youssef challenges readers, “Praise produces five major benefits in our lives. . . . It reveals our true beliefs, and it refocuses our thinking and feelings. Praise is the route to deep fellowship with God, and it establishes the reign of God in our lives. Finally, praise reinforces the truth of who we are and who God is.

Available Tuesday September 7, “Empowered By Praise: Experiencing God’s Presence and Power When You Give Him Glory” will include a chapter-by-chapter study guide for individuals and small groups.
