Come, let’s worship and bow down! Let’s kneel before the Lord, our maker! Psalm 95:6, CEB
Another element of worship we like to do on our worship nights is pray together. There’s nothing more worshipful than either singing or praying together and taking the time to listen to the sound that all of the voices are making in the room at once. Often I get distracted and I’m worried about doing my own singing or praying. I want to say the right words and do it in the right speed and right order. But if I can get out of my head and listen to all the voices in the room, then I can’t help but get emotional as I listen to all the voices of all the people who are committing themselves to the same kind of faith that I am. It’s unbelievable.
Today, pray the prayer below. Know that you’re not alone. Know that many others are praying with you. Think about their voices.
Come, let’s sing out loud to the Lord!
Let’s raise a joyful shout to the rock of our salvation!
2 Let’s come before him with thanks!
Let’s shout songs of joy to him!
3 The Lord is a great God,
the great king over all other gods.
4 The earth’s depths are in his hands;
the mountain heights belong to him;
5 the sea, which he made, is his
along with the dry ground,
which his own hands formed.
6 Come, let’s worship and bow down!
Let’s kneel before the Lord, our maker!
7 He is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture,
the sheep in his hands. Psalm 95:1-7, CEB
