“O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our maker.” Psalm 95:6
There are different phases of prayer. Among the most neglected is worship, when a man sets aside his life and takes time to bow down and adore the great God. We do not make enough time to worship and it is so important! When we get alone, face-to-face with the everlasting God, He can overshadow us and cover us and fill us with His love and His glory. The Holy Spirit can work in us such a longing for the things of God, that we will give up our pleasures, and even a part of our business, that we may meet our God more frequently.
- Andrew Murray
Much prayer has to do with our needs, or the needs of others; worship has to do with God Himself. In worship the heart is occupied with Him. The more we really worship God the more truly spiritual and holy our praying will be. “Lord fix my wandering thoughts on Thyself in sincerest worship, that for a time I may forget all my needs and be occupied wholly with Thy glory. Help me to take more time to worship Thee.”
