Is Your Praise List Longer Than Your Petition List?

How often do we praise God? This is not to boast, but the moment I woke up, my mind is set to God, thanking Him for another day and for the good night sleep it was. Praising Him is the air that I breath every day. But of course, I know that is not enough.
Everyday people get up, get dressed, drive to work or school or the grocery store and return safety to their families. No one knows how many times God has protected us from harm. But when God don't answer some of our prayers, we complained and say that God don't care.
How many prayers and petitions do you have in your heart? When we consider all the wonderful things that God does silently on our behalf every single day, do we realized that our list of praises should be much longer than our list of petitions? Every single second we have and every single thing that happened to us are reasons God gave to us to keep praising Him always. Praising Him should be the air that we breath every day.
"I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things." Isaiah 25:1
