What does it mean to worship God? How can you worship the Lord? One definition of worship could be admiring the power of God with wonder and proclaiming our love for Him with joy. In addition, Christian worship is often associated with prayers of thanksgiving, which are usually recited to express gratitude for the Lord’s good works.

Prayers of thanksgiving are a bit different from prayers of worship in that they are recited to express gratitude for something, such as a special work of God that impacted our personal lives. But both forms of prayer are connected, prayers of thanksgiving are logical to follow up to worship, and they serve to make it strong as they reinforce the feeling of gratitude we feel towards Our Father, the source of all good things. You can choose to dedicate a moment of your day to thank the Lord after an important event or as a habit while reviewing your month.
