Adoration is an element of prayer that should always be included in our conversation with God. It involves praise and worship. We should always acknowledge God’s “worthship” or worthiness to be adored. Adoration is always appropriate whether our specific prayer requests have been answered or not. God deserves our adoration because He is God!
Prayers of adoration simply means we exalt, esteem, bless and honor the Lord. We reflect upon His character—holiness, goodness, love, mercy, power, grace and dominion.
Revelation 4:11, “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.” In essence, we are to adore the Lord because He is worthy…He created all things, and brought everything into being because that is what He wanted to do.
When you draw closer to God through prayer, most of your prayer time should be devoted to adoring Him. I have learned that prayers of adoration opens the window of blessings and brings you into the very Presence of God Almighty. Often times the more you adore Him the need to make requests isn’t necessary. Since He knows what we need before we ask, He will grant our unspoken requests and give us the desires of our heart that are aligned with His will and plan for our life. How awesome is that?
Let’s adore Him now:
You are holy and righteous and just, deserving of praise, honor and glory! Your name is great and greatly to be praised. Before the earth was formed, You are! You are from everlasting to everlasting. We honor You and give You the praise you deserve. You are good and your mercy endures forever from generation to generation. Oh! how we adore you, and magnify Your name. You are the only true God above all gods. There is none like You. We worship You in spirit and in truth. Oh! Lord, faithful and true, how excellent is Your name in all the earth. We bow down to You and worship You in the beauty of holiness. Let all the people praise You! How majestic is Your name! The heavens declare your glory and from our lips we offer you the fruit of praise, and bless Your Holy Name, our Lord and our God, forever and ever. Amen!
