At the start of every Sunday morning service at Living Waters we celebrate The Lord with “Praise & Worship” to Him. We sing 4 contemporary worship songs together. At the conclusion of the first song I take a front-and-center position to welcome my brothers and sisters of my church family to another beautiful Sunday morning experience. I also read a Psalm of celebration (a different one each week).
This morning I read the first 3 verses of the 34TH Psalm:
I will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak His praises. I will boast only in the LORD. Let all who are helpless take heart. Come – let us tell of the LORD’s greatness. Let us exalt His name together.
And the Psalm is always followed-up with Psalm 118:24:
… For this is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice, and be glad in it.
And then I invite my church family to continue our praise, our worship, our celebration of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ as our Praise & Worship leaders segue into the second song.
Praise & Worship is my favorite part of the Sunday morning service, and opening our service in that manner each week seems to be working out pretty good. God is Glorified with each verse of His voice in each song. We sing for God ! We exalt His name together !
