Currently I am reading the book 10 Minutes to Powerful Prayer by Stormie Omartian on my Kindle. The first chapter is titled Prayer Focus 1: Worship and Praise God for Who He is (The book actually covers ten prayer focuses … a pretty comprehensive list). And that chapter has a number of things worth sharing here on the blog over the next few days … the following comes directly from the book:
Worship is …
Opening your heart to God,
Inviting the presence of God to dwell with you,
Praising God as your Creator,
Exalting Him as the God of Love,
Honoring and thanking God for all He has done,
Thanking Jesus for all He accomplished on the cross,
Coming in contact with all that God is,
Allowing God’s holiness to touch you,
Offering yourself to the Lord,
Demonstrating your love for God,
Affirming your loyalty to God,
Lifting your heart and mind to God,
Preparing to receive all God has for you,
Acknowledging God as almighty and all-powerful,
Letting go of all else and embracing only the Lord.
What additional ‘Worship is …’ items might you add regarding prayer?
Lord, teach me anew how to worship you in the midst of prayer!
