Learn how you can give a prayers of adoration with these 5 prayers. They will inspire you to praise God and give Him the glory.
God created us to worship Him, and we see many people in the Bible taking their time to worship Him in their everyday lives.
If we are to grow in our faith, then we have to devote ourselves to praying and worshipping God always, not only when we need anything from Him. When we adore God, we are focusing on who He is, and not what He can do for us.
Adoration is the reverence, strong admiration, and devotion we show God. Psalm 5:7 tells us that because of God’s unfailing love, we are to enter His sanctuary and worship Him with our deepest awe.
But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple.
Our heart and soul is to be sold out to God when we are deep in worship and forget everything else around us. He is worthy of our praise and worship! (Learn the difference between praise and worship here)
We should enter the presence of God with awe in our hearts and acknowledge the great God He is, and there is no other like Him.
David created a beautiful prayer of adoration which will inspire you to adore God as you lift up prayers to Him.
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things. – 1 Chronicles 29:11
What Does Adoring God in Prayer Do for Us as Believers?
I was pretty surprised when I went digging to find that the word adore or adoration isn’t found in scripture, but the origin of the word of adore actually has its roots in worship and praise. In our modern times this word has been lessened to mean to love or like…”I adore chocolate” or “Isn’t that baby just adorable.“
But the original intent for this word is to be an expression of honor and worship!
adore (v.) late 14c., aouren, “to worship, pay divine honors to, bow down before,” from Old French aorer “to adore, worship, praise” (10c., later adorer), from Latin adorare “speak to formally, beseech, entreat, ask in prayer,” in Late Latin “to worship,” literally “to call to,” from ad “to” (see ad-) + ōrare “speak formally, pray” (see orator). Meaning “to honor very highly” is attested from 1590s; weakened sense of “to be very fond of” emerged by 1880s. Related: Adored; adoring. (source)
So, the word adore may not be in scripture but the practice of it sure is! As believers of Jesus Christ, we have been reconciled to God through our amazing Savior, and we have direct access to Him.
We can go into the presence of God boldly and pour out our hearts to Him, and let Him know how much we love Him.
Our relationship with God becomes closer when we adore Him, and He in turn pours out more of Himself in us! It’s wonderful.
By showing our reverence for God when we praise and worship Him, He dwells in our midst as the King of Glory.
Psalm 22:3 tells us that God in His holiness is enthroned in the praises of His people. He responds to our praise with His presence where we find His joy.
God reveals Himself to us when we are close to Him and hold Him in reverence.
When we adore God daily, we invite Him into our hearts, and He brings healing and restoration into our lives.
Being in His presence renews our strength and helps us grow in our faith in Jesus Christ. By giving God first place in our hearts, we demonstrate that we love Him with our all like He desires.
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. -Mark 12:30
We adore God as we enter into a time of prayer. We connect with God when we pray, and He has invited us to approach Him with boldness knowing that we will receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. – Hebrews 4:16
