Prayer - Adoration

So what is adoration? Adoration is the deep love and respect for someone we revere, especially as it pertains to a divine being. In the Bible, adoration is demanded of all who profess to know God. When we adore the Lord, all of our activities should become acts of worship. When our adoration is reserved for only our Saviour all our other loves take their proper place in our lives. We are able to love our families and friends better when our worshipful adoration belongs only to the Lord.

“… shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ - Mark 12:30

In terms of voicing our prayers of adoration we could have an image of our heart, soul, mind, strength - maybe a picture for the feelings of our heart, or colour for our soul; imagine the depth of our mind and the strength of our body? Imagine each of them in prayer, or one by one; offer them to God in love. Part of prayer is bringing our whole self in love to the one who is creating you moment by moment, day by day, in love.

Lord, enlarge my heart. Make me more and more sensitive to the quality of your love, especially as I think of your gift of life. May I perceive how much you love me. Make me a grateful person. Amen
