"I woke up around 2 a.m. and realized in my dozing off early last night, after a yard work day, that I missed my usual reading and praying for Sunday."
That was a part of a message I received last Sunday morning from our a member of my church. She goes on to say that at that early hour of the morning she got up and took some time to pray and read through the scriptures for the service that would take place in a few hours.
I wonder how many people who attend church on Sunday mornings take time on Saturday to pray and read...prepare...for Sunday services.
From my vantage point on stage I get to witness how this person engages in worship...she engages. It is obvious that her conversation with God doesn't start and stop as she walks in and out of church.
Worship Leaders, Ministers of Music it is time we give our people the resources to help them prepare.
Worshipers plan a time during the weekend to get the conversation started.
Now to follow my own words of advice...
