Week 8: Worship
18. Watch John Ortberg and Dallas Willard discuss worship. Watch from the 6:00 mark to the 13:00 mark
19. How often do we prepare for worship? One thing we can do is expect to meet God during worship. Next, we can pray for the worship leaders, that they may feel God’s presence and can speak and lead effectively. Third, focus on singing the songs directly to God and listening to God in scripture and preaching. Commit yourself to worship with your heart this week.*
This is week eight of 23 Things. See previous posts here and here for the first 17 things and an introduction to 23 Things. If you want to be eligible to win a free book, post a comment under each week’s session. Those who complete all 23 Things will be placed in a drawing for a free book.
*The idea for this week’s exercise came from the book, A Year With God, by Richard Foster and Julia Roller.
I think a mistake with worship is that so many times we go into it with a selfish mentality when it should be focused on God. I have never “prepared for worship” but I’ll give it a try this week.
