R-1: WORSHIP IN GOD’S HOUSE (在上帝殿中敬拜)

Psalm 84:1-12 (NKJV)


How lovely is Your tabernacle,
O LORD of hosts!
My soul longs, yes, even faints
For the courts of the LORD;
My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.


Even the sparrow has found a home,
And the swallow a nest for herself,
Where she may lay her young—
Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts,
My King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in Your house;
They will still be praising You. Selah


Blessed is the man whose strength is in You,
Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
They make it a spring;
The rain also covers it with pools.
They go from strength to strength;
Each one appears before God in Zion.


O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer;
Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah
O God, behold our shield,
And look upon the face of Your anointed.


For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
The LORD will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold
From those who walk uprightly.


O LORD of hosts,
Blessed is the man who trusts in You!

Song of Response

Lyrics - My Faith Has Found a Resting Place

Worship through Prayer

  1. Lord, teach me to approach You with holy reverence and care. Let me not forget that You are the Almighty God. Keep me from approaching you with an attitude of contempt. I humble myself and submit fully to You.

  2. Divine miracles seem non-existent in this generation but You remain sovereignly involved in this world. Open my spiritual eyes to see the wonder of Your loving presence and mighty power. Let me declare Your praise constantly.

  3. Help me remember Your goodness in my life. I am forgetful and I easily forget that You have been faithful and good to me all my life. Let me be intentional in thanking You for all You have done and not forget all Your benefits. Let my life be filled with praise and thanksgiving unto You.

Self-Reflection & Discussion

  1. Have you experienced God in your life? 

  2. Are there any sins, behaviors, or attitudes that you need to cleanse from your life so that you can follow God's leading and experience Him?

  3. What amazing abilities of God still leave you in wonder?

  4. What do you do (or what could you do) so that you won't forget your experiences with God?
