Theme of the Week – Prayer for the future of Hope Fellowship
Today – Worship…What Does It Look Like?
Scripture – Isaiah 25:1-5
As you read the words of Isaiah 25:1, when Isaiah speaks of exaltation and praise, your initial thought may gravitate toward worship singing. That’s legitimate and understandable, but not complete. We have been conditioned to think that worship is singing, and although it certainly helps change our focus and direct our thoughts, worship is so much more.
As we pray about the future of Hope Fellowship, we want to lift up the aspect of worship as an event. It’s no secret we have the opportunity for more to bless us in the area of worship singing, and we need to pray for that. But we want to also want to ask God to direct us in expanding our worship experiences to possibly include
⁃ Expanded Bible reading in the service
- Prayer in ways outside of the usual format
- Acts of Service
