“Worship is a lost labor without a heart fully devoted to God”

“Worship is a lost labor without a heart fully devoted to God.” – John Wesley

 

Question of the Day:  “What attitude do I bring into worship?”

 

Heavenly Father,

You are the Creator of all things.  You are my Creator, and I was made with a heart specifically designed to worship You.  Forgive me for what I have substituted for true worship.  I have allowed You only my physical presence in a once-per-week format, when You have requested my heart and my mind in an ongoing conversation.

Help me, Lord, to come into “worship” each Sunday with a mind and heart fully prepared to engage with You.  Teach me to pray and quiet myself in order to fully hear Your voice and feel Your presence.  Help me to surrender those things on my mind to You, that I might be fully present and worshipful in spirit every time I encounter You.

And Lord, please forgive me for confining my worship experience to a box.  Help me to approach my daily life with an attitude of worship, in spirit in truth.  May everything I do come with an outpouring of gratitude and honor for You.  In Your grace, please help me to live into this blessed relationship with You in all its fullness.

 

In the name of Jesus I pray,

Amen
