Poem - Worship

by Joanne Standfield

Tonight as we stood in worship
it was like electricity filled the air,
with the presence of God enveloping
and washing away all care.
I felt my spirit soar inside
as I sang Him songs of praise,
my heart so overflowing
because of His love and amazing grace.
It was as though His arms were around me
in a Heavenly Father hug,
our hearts being knit together
as He enveloped me in His love

I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the peace offerings of your fattened animals, I will not look upon them. Take away from me the noise of your songs; to the melody of your harps I will not listen. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. Amos 5:21-24

And many nations shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. Micah 4:2

All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the Lord. But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.
Isaiah 66:2

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy Psalm 103:1-4

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! Psalm 95:6

A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!
Psalm 100:1-4
