DAILY PRAYER REQUESTS
“Because He is your Lord; worship Him.” Psalm 45:11
The worship of God is the soul bowing down before God in absorbed contemplation of His majesty. Over and over we read in the Bible that, “they bowed their heads and worshipped;” or “they fell down and worshipped.” It has been well said that, “In prayer we are occupied with our needs; in thanksgiving we are occupied with our blessings; in worship we are occupied with God Himself.” God does want us to pray about our needs. He still wants us to bring our needs to Him. He also wants us to focus on our blessings and to thank Him for them but He would especially have us, I am sure, more occupied with God Himself in intelligent worship.
