Although the account of Elijah seems devoid of such expressions of praise. Both in the desert and on mount Horeb he does seem fully able to express how downcast and disturbed he is feeling, which is very helpful – but without turning this into positive declarations of what God has done or will do.

Paul from the NT is very able to express both frustrations and joys! Acts 16:25-34

Gratitude expressed to God is glorifying to Him, but also very good for us -0 & is one of the primary keys to us experiencing positive emotions. This increases not just our health, but our spiritual wellbeing too. (Which is why worship, especially singing worship with others can be so good for us!)
