PRAYING RIGHT: Can Man Bless God While Praying?

When God bless men, He helps, strengthen, and make better that person, but that is not the same as when man bless God. We cannot in any way help, strengthen or make God better. When we bless God, we simply glorify His Name. We simply give thanks to Him for all that He has done for us. So while praying, we can bless God by calling Him great, and acknowledging that He has absolute power over everything seen and unseen.

Below are some Bible verses that portrays the phrase 'bless God':

First Instance:
And you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. (Deuteronomy 8:10)

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, (Psalm 103:2)
