Family in Worship Together

Thoughts on Family Worship

   God wants ALL of us to love Him, thoughtfully, passionately, and with our whole heart. Worship is a time we can express our affection for God. Worship is a time we give back to God. Have you realized the value of this worship time with your family? On Sunday morning? Or other special times?    In our fast pace society there are fewer things family is doing together. Even meal time becomes a challenge. Sadly, great conversations are often had at the dinner table, and so many of these opportunities are being missed. So let’s focus on the central most important thing a family can do together each week—attend worship at their church together! One of the greatest benefits of family worship is the actual passing on of our faith to the next generation. We are teaching our children how to read the Scriptures, pray, confess their sins, sing unto God, and much more. By participating with us in our worship, they are building a strong foundation, and making their relationship with the eternal one even stronger.      Children watch everything carefully. One little guy named Sam when asked about his Daddy commented, “I want to be just like my Daddy when I get big”!   Do you think he wants to be like Daddy because Daddy worships God?   We can hope and pray, that the family together at worship causes little Sam to be LIKE Daddy, loving the Lord. 
   Anyone who brings family (of any age) to worship is actively helping to pass on the faith.   The Lord asks us to "pass it on", so that all may worship Him!

Prayer

We give thanks unto You, O God, because we can approach Your throne, at any time, with freedom and confidence! Father, we thank you that we are Your workmanship and our identity is found in You. We are grateful that we were chosen before the foundation of the world, that you adopted us, that you love us, and that we belong to You. When we are tempted to worry about what others think or we are afraid of how others see us, God remind us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. We are no longer condemned; we are forgiven. We are delivered. We are healed. We are set free. We are overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb! We are Your sons and Your daughters. Hallelujah! We are victorious. In Jesus' name, Amen.   (By T.Morrison)
