An Act Of Worship

What do you think of when you hear the word “worship”?

Church, praise meeting, singing…?

How about prayer? Does that strike you as being an act of worship?

At first when I getting my thoughts together for this blog post, I had to say I didn’t really think prayer was a true act of worship. However we’re reminded in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live. (The Message)

God wants us to pray, to rejoice in Him and thank Him for all He does for us. By praying to God we are showing Him just how much we love and adore Him.

God tells us to “pray without ceasing”, but He doesn’t mean we should pray continually all the time, as that would be unachievable. However He does expect us to pray daily and thus worship Him on a daily basis.

Worship God today, pray!


  1. Yes – prayer is an act of worship, but saying a prayer may not be. The worth of time that we give to prayer is what makes it worship.
