The Worship Quote of the Week for (03/17/1998):

Worship and Intercession
Today's WORSHIP QUOTE OF THE WEEK is another from Oswald Chambers' devotional

Worship and intercession must go together, the one is impossible without the
other. Intercession means that we rouse ourselves up to get the mind of Christ
about the one for whom we pray. Too often instead of worshipping God, we
construct statements as to how prayer works. Are we worshipping or are we in
dispute with God- 'I don't see how You are going to do it.' This is a sure
sign that we are not worshipping. When we lose sight of God we become hard and
dogmatic. We hurl our own petitions at God's throne and dictate to Him as to
what we wish Him to do. We do not worship God, nor do we seek to form the mind
of Christ. If we are hard towards God, we will become hard towards other

[Lord, give us the mind of Christ as we pray for each other. May our
intercessions be supported by a proper attitude of worship.]

Have a great week,
