Worship is …

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!



About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
