Q2: Bringing the Church Together for service, prayer and worship.

God shall help us to serve with gladness  (Psalm 100; Exo 15:2; 2;  Chron 5:13; Col 3:16)

Service, prayer, and worship are intricately woven threads in our relationship with God. Drawing from the rich tapestry of Greek culture, where various forms of servitude were expressed, we find echoes of Christ’s own example of service leading to exaltation. Remarkably, even now, Christ intercedes on behalf of His Church. 

“Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)

Prayer, when offered with a heart brimming with adoration, gratitude, and surrender, transcends mere words and rituals. Whether in the public gathering of believers or in the quiet chambers of our hearts, our communion with God becomes an act of worship. It is a sacred dialogue that reaches beyond earthly constraints, connecting us to the divine. Public worship involves congregating as a redeemed family to worship God. We do not worship to become holy; rather, we are made holy to worship. Acts 2:42, 46-47; Hebrews 10:25 emphasise the importance of gathering together for worship. On the other hand in private, we can worship God through prayer. Jesus said, “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24). Private worship includes personal moments of adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication. Our entire lives can be an act of worship. Romans 12:1 encourages us to offer our bodies as living sacrifices, which is our spiritual worship. Acts of love, service, and witness are also forms of worship. When we serve others selflessly, we honour God. 

Philippians 4:6 and 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 remind us to combine praise with prayer. The “house of prayer” should be entered with praise and thanksgiving. We worship God because of who He is and all that He has done. Our gratitude extends to His common mercies, His presence, and the privilege of prayer. Romans 8:28 assures us that God works for good even when circumstances seem unfavourable. We give thanks in all circumstances, recognising that God’s sovereignty remains unchanged.Our worship extends beyond the present. We anticipate God’s ultimate victory (1 Corinthians 15:20-28) and the fulfillment of His promises (Revelation 22:3-5). A Hope for the Future is assured.
