1 House of Prayer - LAUS DEO

Tuesday, January 15, 2013 ~ Nightly, National, Synchronized Prayer ~ The Heart of Worship!

January 15, 2013

Hello Prayer Warriors,

Tonight I would like to start a series about the importance of worship. This topic interests me immensely and I love to hear your input on it. I hope you will be blessed!

When Jesus spoke to the woman at the well, he told her told her that, “…the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth” (John 4:23-24). This statement made by Jesus Himself tells us much about worship. First, by saying that the hour is coming and now is, Jesus is stating that worship is eternal and outside of the confines of time. When he speaks of true worshipers, he is speaking of those that are fully committed to a lifestyle of worship by the power of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus speaks of worshiping the Father in Spirit and in truth, this means that worship must be scriptural. By speaking of God as Spirit, Jesus is showing that, not only is worship eternal, but true worship transcends even the physical realm of space and time, reaching the Father in Heaven.

In Revelation 4, we are transported to the very throne room of heaven. John of Patmos describes a door that is opened in Heaven to show him the vision of the throne room. “After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in Heaven” (Rev. 4:1 KJV). Jesus tells us in Revelation, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Rev 3:20 KJV). God Himself is telling us that there is an open door to worship that we may enter into!

Father, I pray that we may worship You in Spirit and in truth, even as we continue to pray for revival and restoration of our great nation. In Jesus’ Holy name we pray. Amen!

Here is the link to my newest video, “Cover Me.” I hope you enjoy it and share my heart of worship for Jesus Christ's glory!

Sister: Laurie, I like your post, and am looking forward to reading any additional input on worship. Your song is lovely, and I envy the background in it; you see where I live here it is mostly sand and rock desert. So if we want something green, we paint our house green! {)¦:3)› Shalom!

Thanks Laurie for leading us tonight. Worshiping should be an ongoing processs. All our thoughts should be prayers and communication with our LORD. My day goes so much better when I am constantly worshiping and praising. My Youtube is so terrible that most songs are jerky and I try to reset to get them to reload normal but it would not happen. I heard bits and pieces and wish I could hear it normal. The time of day may have something to do with it.

Kenny, thank you so much for your heartfelt response. It means so much to me to be able to share my heart of worship with others. I am so glad you were touched. That is what I believe God wants. God bless you, my brother in Christ!

Yeshua Friend, I look forward to discussing worship with you, too. Thanks for listening and watching as well. It is very beautiful and green here and that was filmed last spring in the Smokey Mountains.

Yeshua Friend, I grew up in California in the San Fernando Valley and I know how brown it can get. Utah is even worse, but you sure have some magnificent landscapes! Tennessee is like Ireland....sooooooo green and beautiful. Even this winter it is green because we have had a lot of rain. Unfortunately, they have turned our rural area into shopping malls lately and have cut into the once gorgeous countryside of my town.

Sophie is home tonight and we are both content and worn out. Praise and worship is my life style. Music and worhipers walk a dangerous fine line line between performance and merchandising the anointing and pure worship. I have walked in both camps and have to check myself often. Sometimes I hold back on expressing love for the father bc I become concerned that "people" will think I am showing off or trying to get attention.

Before we begin prayer at 10:00 CST, let's read and pray Ephesians 6:10-20 out loud.

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I got caught up in that lovely song but I am here to pray I will return at the quarter hour. I do have a prayer request. My son is becoming very depressed, I pray that he has some encouragement soon.

Good evening friends, I am here to pray. Laurie thanks for leading us.

Sister: Laurie, music and worship is one of your many gifts, and yes I do believe that you truly desire to honor and glorify Ha'Adonai in all you say and do, even as I also strive to do; yet we are all still but infants growing daily through Ruach Ha'Kodesh in wisdom, and trials of perseverance for the faithful. Whereby we acknowledge that Yah is in control of all things, except the free will driven nature of the flesh. Shalom!

Barbara, I will pray for your son. Discouragement is not a good thing. Andrew is getting discouraged too, that he is not getting enough hours. It is hard to watch our children suffer.

Welcome Debbie! So glad you could be here tonight. How are you doing? Is is cold up where you are? We are expecting ice storms tomorrow. Praying for safety for all and for all to stay warm and safe.

1 year 8 months ago

Amen, Yeshua Friend! Yes, we are are growing together and I fear that, no matter how old we get, we'll still be growing in wisdom. Iron sharpens iron and you always keep me on my toes!

Laurie, I loved your video. Thank you for sharing it! I always feel such joy in my heart when I hear you singing and your smile is contagious!

I am in agreement with all prayers here.

Laurie, it is still cold but a few degrees better than last night. It's 21 here!
Gee, I've forgotten what it feels like to be 21! Ha! Ha! =)

YF I have been to your part of the country and I think it is very beautiful. I do love deserts. Of course much of Southern Idaho is high desert.

1 year 8 months ago

Thanks, Debbie! I know...wouldn't it be nice to be 21 again!!?? Or maybe not because we would have to go through all the junk again. Another lesson: be happy where we are!

Barbara and Yeshua Friend,

When we drove through Utah, I felt like I was on the moon! It was amazingly beautiful. I've never been to Idaho but I hear it is lovely. Are you staying warm, Barbara?

Any new prayer requests?

Father, please help Andrew to not be discouraged and to stay the course of his job if it be your will. Amen.

Thank you Laurie,
You are so talented and I am as uplifted as Kenny after hearing your music.
Yours is the gift to touch the hearts of those who hear you. We all tap into God in ways that are special to us. For some as you, Laurie, your creativity and talent help you to connect with God. For some this creativity is more quiet and leads to a more contemplitative prayer. We express ourselves in different ways which lead us into our own unique way of knowing God.

Carol, that was perfectly said. You have a lot of wisdom my friend!

Barbara and Laurie, I shall remember you in special prayers for your sons. And, Dawn, now that you are able to take a breather and relax, please do. Somehow , from what I have learned about you, things won't stay quiet for long!

Thank you, it's from God.

Idaho is a very different State, The middle is uninhabited The southern part is high desert and Mountains. The northern part is in a different time zone. so that is very strange, And if you really want to be on the moon There are parts of southern Idaho that are lava beds that look just like the moon.

Carol, thank you so much. I agree with Debbie that you are a wise woman of God. I appreciate what you said. I grew up in a family of little support and it has been hard for me to get out there and do my thing. I forgive them, but it has been a lifelong struggle. That is why I am so grateful for all of you. I am so glad you enjoyed the song. Much love and blessings!

"Iron sharpens iron" Yup! Yah puts his exhortation on me, and then like the imp that I am; I share it with all the others, and lighten my load. Will isn't that the way it what was written?

Act 4:32 "Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common." ҉ {¦:3)› Shalom!
