How can you pray a worship prayer?
You can pray word for word one of the worship prayers found in scripture, or you can rewrite the verses to apply to your own circumstances, with the emphasis on God’s glory rather than your reaction or situation. For example, Psalm 145: 14-16 says:
“The Lord supports all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed.
Everyone’s eyes are on you, and you feed them at the right time.
You open your hand; you satisfy the desires of every living being. “
You can pray through these three verses above and apply them to your life by rewriting them to make them more personal. For example:
“Lord, you uphold all who feel like they are falling, and you raise up all the humble and wait for you to exalt them. Help me be humble and wait for you even if I think I am falling.
And Lord, you care for every living being. Help me this week with what I need materially and financially. I know that you are the only one who satisfies, and if I look at you, you will always get through. “
You can also pray adoration prayers by reading the Psalms or other passages of Scripture and praying it out loud to God in any verse that praises God and also make it your praise for him.
Time to get started
So what are you waiting for? Scripture says that God’s word “is breathed out by God” (2 Timothy 3:16) and “alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating to the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and know the thoughts and intentions of the heart ”(Hebrews 4:12). This means that it can convey your praise to God from Him today, just as it conveyed the praise of the writers of the Scriptures thousands of years ago.
Come before him with a worship prayer and, as the psalmist said:
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his yards with praise!
Thank him; bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
his unshakable love lasts forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations ”(Psalm 100: 4-5).
