Commentary on this Week’s PrayerTo worship God means so much more that attendance at a Sunday morning worship service. Don't get me wrong, attendance at a worship service is important, but to worship God means so much more. Any act of worship means that we are seeking to please God, thank God, praise God, or serve God. All of these are acts of service and require a level of devotion to God. As we pray this week let us be sensitive and aware of those things in our busy lives which seek our worship and divert our attention and priority to God.
How to use these prayersGreetings Friends: These prayers are meant to be prayed either in community or in solitude. If done with a group this can be read as a responsive prayer with a leader reading the regular print and the rest of the group reading the bolded print. These prayers are posted at the beginning of each week and are based on the Watchword for the Week as found in the Moravian Daily Texts.
