As you'll discover as you read through Rick Warren's, The Purpose Driven Life, worship through music is only a small portion of what true, biblical worship is all about.
Worship is the process of surrendering your entire life into God's hands. Everything you do canand shouldbe an act of worship.
God designed us to worship Him with our whole lives, and there are actually spiritual habits that we can build into our lives that help us worship God more deeply?
Here are ten habits than will build worship into your life on a daily basis.
- Worship through prayer. We often miss this important component of our prayer life. Think about the issues you usually pray about. How much of your prayer life is about you and how much of it is about God? Without a doubt God wants us to be able to share everything that is going on in our life. But he also wants us to get to know Him better. When we affirm who God is through our prayers, we put our prayer life in proper perspective. That's exactly how Jesus taught us to pray. Look at the Lord's Prayer in the Gospel of Mathew (6: 9-13); Jesus starts the prayer off by saying "Our Father who is in Heaven, May Your name be honored." (NLT) Jesus teaches us an important lesson with this prayer. Prayer starts with God. Consider including in your prayers a time of focused attention on who God is.
