Come Let us Adore Him – The second step in our pattern of prayer is adoration. Adoring the Lord is not just something we sing about during the Christmas season— “O come, let us adore Him….” Rather, this step corresponds to hallowing God’s name, as in Jesus’ model prayer:
“Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name” (Luke 11:2 KJV).
Adoration means worshipping God. When you adore someone, you express how precious that person is to you. In the Psalms, King David gave countless examples of how we can give adoration to God. Each morning, you can begin your day with adoration from the Scriptures, expressing to the Lord your love for Him. The first part of Psalm 25 is a good example. It makes a great worship song:
Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.…Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. (Psalm 95:1–3, 6–7)
What a song of adoration! “Come, let us bow down in worship.” You can match these words with your own melody and sing them to the Lord throughout the day.
Another example is Psalm 147:1:
“Praise the LORD. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!”
Go through the Psalms, offering praise to the Lord. He alone is worthy!
