Multiplication of Praise

Hebrews 13:15English Standard Version (ESV)
15 Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.

Hebrews 13:3English Standard Version (ESV)
3 Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.

We've been singing the song, "Multiplied" by NEEDTOBREATHE in our Sunday morning worship services at my church; and my fondness for it grows with every singing.  I've been wanting to upload it to Youtube for some time, but have hesitated because it's already been loaded officially and unofficially many times.  Today, however, I did it, because praise to our God can and should be multiplied.  
It reminds me of the paper doll chains we made as little girls.   Using repeated folds of paper one doll becomes many and they're all holding hands.  It is possible to worship and follow God even isolated from others, they're are many persecuted Christians who prove that truth; but there is also a special sweetness to worshipping together.  So remember those unseen members tomorrow as you worship, they are part of the chain, part of the body of Christ.  Our praises will be multiplied.
