32 - Phases of Prayer - 1

4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
Psalms 27:4 (NKJV)

There are different phases of prayer.

There is worship, when a man just bows down to adore the great God.
We do not take time to worship.
We need to worship in private, just to get ourselves face to face with the everlasting God, that He may overshadow us and cover us and fill us with His love and His glory.

We also need to worship in public with other Christians, so that we become part of the temple of "living stones" which the Lord comes to inhabit, whenever we gather together to worship Him.

It is the Holy Spirit that can work in us such a yearning that we will give up our pleasures and even part of our business, that we may the oftener meet our God.

Hope we can get together again tomorrow, God willing.
Meanwhile, have a great day walking with the Lord!
