The Praise Report, LLC is a Georgia Corporation founded in 2014 by Tommie B. Merritt. Tommie saw her family members drifting apart and noticed that they did not know what was going on in the lives of each other. She started sending text messages that she called “Praise Report”, announcing birthdays, births, deaths, graduations, illnesses, etc. to each family member. The family began to look forward to the text messages and relied on her to get messages out announcing the happening in the family. The Praise Report proved to be a tremendous communication success for her family. During the illness of her mother and father the Praise Reports were such a blessing to the family and everyone was kept abreast of their condition through the texts. Tommie decided that everyone should have a tool to communicate with each other in a peaceful and calm environment, thus the birth of “thepraisereportapp.com”.
Our Mission is to provide a Christian social media network where family, friends, churches and other organizations can share clear messages of love, hope and healing to people around the world through the Praise Report.
Rainbow: Symbolizes Father God’s promises (Revelation 4:3) and His mercy in the covenant He made with Noah not to destroy the earth by water again (Genesis 9:12, 16). "And God said: 'This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: "'I set My RAINBOW in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the RAINBOW shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The RAINBOW shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.' ” (Genesis 9:12-16, NKJV) The colors of the rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. These colors are the "visible" part of the sun's radiation. Special Bible Significance of the colors:
Red - Life, blood, redemption, & covenant of grace
Orange – Praise, harvest season, joy
Yellow – Light, life & glory of God
Green - Rest, new life & growth
Blue - Heavenly, Holy Spirit, restoration, & healing
Indigo – Atonement
Violet – Royalty, majesty, riches & power
CROSS: The most famous symbol of Christianity is the cross. It represents the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and redemption of the whole world. The empty cross symbolizes his resurrection from the dead and has dual significance in both suffering and triumph. DOVES: Usually white in color are used as symbols of peace and the Holy Spirit. Doves mate for life and are incredibly loyal to each other and work together to build their nest and raise their young. They are dedicated, honorable and peaceful.
BUTTERFLY: Symbolizes grace, beauty, transformation, gentleness and the awareness and power of another way of being. The butterfly is the personification of spiritual growth and transcendence perhaps more than any other life form on earth, because of the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly. The moment he enters the cocoon he has left everything he has ever known behind as he welcomes the rapture of transcendence and complete re-birth. He has surrendered and he is ready, he trusts in something greater than himself to guide him through. The purpose of the life of the butterfly is to set everything that was once known aside and to embrace an entirely new way of being. The monarch butterflies are considered the “king” of the butterflies, hence the name “monarch”.
