About Worship

In our more used English translations, “worship,” in its various forms, is found over 100 times in the Old Testament and over 70 times in the New Testament. It is used of one directing a special act (word or deed) to express adoration to another considered to be of higher rank or power than himself.

Prayer Meeting …

I can remember when many brethren referred to their mid-week service as “Prayer Meeting,” indicating that most of the service as devoted to prayer. We don’t hear the term much these days. Shortly after placing membership at Kimberly we learned that the fifth Sunday evening service was devoted primarily to prayer.

Wordiness

“… They think that they will be heard for their many words.” – Matthew 6:7b

I am fully aware tha Jesus used the above words to teach his disciples how not to pray – not like the heathen (Gentiles) with their vain repetitions. However, the context aside, we believe that these words of caution can furnish us some food for thought about our present-day public worship.
