Prayer is an invocation or act that seeks to activate a rapport with an object of worship through deliberate communication. More generally, prayer can also have the purpose of thanksgiving or praise, and in comparative religion is closely associated with more abstract forms of meditation and with charms or spells.
Mental prayer can be either meditation or contemplation. The basic forms of prayer are adoration, contrition, thanksgiving and supplication, abbreviated as A.C.T.S.
You see, ‘we’ and ‘us’, are better than ‘you’ and ‘do’. That’s the best language to use when thinking about what to say when leading worship . I loved how Paul Baloche did it during a concert—“The Bible tells us to praise the Lord by lifting up our hands.

Worship is an essential part of a Christian’s faith. Christians worship God to thank Him for His love, ask for forgiveness for their sins and try to understand His will for them. Prayer is an important way to experience God as the religious believer can communicate with Him.
Worship is an act of religious devotion usually directed towards a deity. An act of worship may be performed individually, in an informal or formal group, or by a designated leader.
God, through prayer , opens eyes, changes hearts, heals wounds, and grants wisdom (James 1:5). The power of prayer should never be underestimated because it draws on the glory and might of the infinitely powerful God of the universe!

When you come into the presence of a Holy God, it’s natural for tears to flow. Often I’ll cry because I sense God’s tenderness toward me. When a friend and I use to pray together, she would always bring tissues because she said, “I always cry when you pray.” Flowing tears indicate you have a tender heart towards God.
