Call to worship verses

Call to worship verses

I love praise and worship! Don’t you??? Praising God magnifies the Lord’s power and majesty while minimizing the stresses of day-to-day life. Something wonderful happens when we worship. It’s actually warfare that brings about liberty and victory in the spirit. Unless it’s founded on God’s Word, I think praise and worship is nothing more than emotional responses. That’s why I created a simple list of call to worship verses straight from the Bible. They will keep us on track and in congruence with God’s word.

2 Samuel 22:4 (King James Version)
4 I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Ezra 3:11 English Standard Version (ESV)
11 And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord, “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever toward Israel.” And all the people shouted with a great shout when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.

Psalm 57:7 New International Version (NIV)
7 My heart, O God, is steadfast,
my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make music.

Psalm 5:7 English Standard Version (ESV)
7 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
in the fear of you.

Psalm 35:18 English Standard Version (ESV)
18 I will thank you in the great congregation;
in the mighty throng I will praise you.

You don’t need to be at church for call to worship verses to be useful!

You can use these verses for meditation on God’s Word or before your prayer time. Each Bible verse is a beautiful reminder of worship and even gives a wonderful context for worship in general.

Psalm 86:8-10 New International Version (NIV)
8 Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;
no deeds can compare with yours.
9 All the nations you have made
will come and worship before you, Lord;
they will bring glory to your name.
10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
you alone are God.

Psalm 84:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
Lord Almighty!
2 My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.

Psalm 84:4 English Standard Version (ESV)
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house,
ever singing your praise! Selah

Psalm 84:10-12 New International Version (NIV)
10 Better is one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
12 Lord Almighty,
blessed is the one who trusts in you.

Psalm 92:1-2 English Standard Version (ESV)
92 It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
2 to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
and your faithfulness by night,

Psalm 95:6 English Standard Version (ESV)
6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

The above verse is one of my favorite call to worship verses. It just speaks to the humility and beauty of worship, don’t you think?

Psalm 100 English Standard Version (ESV)
100 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!
3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;[a]
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!
5 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.

Ephesians 5:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,

Something very magical happens when we pray and worship together as a church unit. My grandmother often said, “forsake not the assembling.” Grandma understood the supernatural Holy Ghost power that comes with corporate worship.

Hebrews 10:24-25 New International Version (NIV)
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Psalm 34:3 New International Version (NIV)
3 Glorify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.

8 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!

Psalm 107:32 English Standard Version (ESV)
32 Let them extol him in the congregation of the people,
and praise him in the assembly of the elders.

Psalm 138:2 English Standard Version (ESV)
2 I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word

What is the difference between Praise and Worship? Ask a praise and worshipper!

I’ll bet Dan Moen is very familiar with call to worship verses. He’s written such beautiful praise music through the years.

Psalm 150 English Standard Version (ESV)
Let Everything Praise the Lord
150 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens![a]
2 Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!
3 Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
4 Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
5 Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

Isaiah 44:23 English Standard Version (ESV)
23 Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it;
shout, O depths of the earth;
break forth into singing, O mountains,
O forest, and every tree in it!
For the Lord has redeemed Jacob,
and will be glorified[a] in Israel.

Romans 12:1 New International Version (NIV)
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

Practical ways to be a blessing to others in worship

1. Car Praise and Worship in Service. Use your “vehicle” to bless others. You can bless others and praise God by giving rides, delivering groceries or some other way.

2. Praise God with your mouth! For instance, use your mouth to speak only kindness to (and of) others. Bless others with your words. That is a wonderful way to praise God with your life. Also, you don’t have to sing praises, you can speak praises every chance you get. Wash dishes and say “Praise be the Lord!” That’s worship, Girl!

I’ve got another idea! Use your voice to bring praise to God in other creative ways.

Here’s a fun challenge! See how many times you can share God’s word in everyday vernacular. Say things like, “today is a good day, created for us to be happy”. Translation: “This is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it”.

Simple references to God’s living Word can change your (or someone else’s) entire day. There’s power in living a life of worship. Go ahead, speak life today, and see how God uses you.

3. Have a servant heart and praise God with how you interact with others.

You know, I’m a consultant, and sometimes clients can “work my nerves” (to all clients reading this; don’t worry, it’s not you ).

Seriously, the Holy Spirit has shown me that God is honored when I am a gentle, kind, and accommodating servant.

Whether they yell or take out their frustrations on me or just call me to complain about something completely out of my control – I try to be a blessing in return.

I find something “praise-able” about the encounter and mentally thank God for the opportunity to encourage and to serve. I am learning to serve in gratefulness and humility in praise and worship to Jesus. I want my whole life to be a living sacrifice to Him. I don’t always make it, but I try.

3. The ‘tried and true’ worship. Now, we get back to the most common and recognizable form of worship. If you cannot spike your day with Godly tunes coming through your earbuds, you can pray for the Holy Spirit to put a song in your heart. I do it all the time! Often the Lord gives me a worship song I thought I had long forgotten. Then I’m humming it all day long. It quiets my soul and lifts my spirits.

Matthew 4:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
10 Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written,
“‘You shall worship the Lord your God
and him only shall you serve.’”

Luke 4:8 English Standard Version (ESV)
8 And Jesus answered him, “It is written,
“‘You shall worship the Lord your God,
and him only shall you serve.’”

John 4:23 English Standard Version (ESV)
23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

Psalm 29:2 New International Version (NIV)
2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of his[a] holiness.

Psalm 29:2 New International Version (NIV)
2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of his[a] holiness.

John 9:31 English Standard Version (ESV)
31 We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him.

Psalm 66:4 New International Version (NIV)
4 All the earth bows down to you;
they sing praise to you,
they sing the praises of your name.”

Revelation 15:4 New International Version (NIV)
4 Who will not fear you, Lord,
and bring glory to your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
and worship before you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.”[a]

1 Corinthians 14:15 English Standard Version (ESV)
15 What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.

Psalm 66:4 New International Version (NIV)
4 All the earth bows down to you;
they sing praise to you,
they sing the praises of your name.”

Philippians 3:3 English Standard Version (ESV)
3 For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God[a] and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh—

Ever wonder why we praise and worship God? I found a cool PDF from Samford University. Click here to read it?

Further Instructions
2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.

1 Peter 2:5 English Standard Version (ESV)
5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

There is definitely power in worship. If you don’t believe me check out:

2 Chronicles 20

2 Chronicles 20 The Message (MSG)
20 1-2 Some time later the Moabites and Ammonites, accompanied by Meunites, joined forces to make war on Jehoshaphat. Jehoshaphat received this intelligence report: “A huge force is on its way from beyond the Dead Sea to fight you. There’s no time to waste—they’re already at Hazazon Tamar, the oasis of En Gedi.”

3-4 Shaken, Jehoshaphat prayed. He went to God for help and ordered a nationwide fast. The country of Judah united in seeking God’s help—they came from all the cities of Judah to pray to God.

5-9 Then Jehoshaphat took a position before the assembled people of Judah and Jerusalem at The Temple of God in front of the new courtyard and said, “O God, God of our ancestors, are you not God in heaven above and ruler of all kingdoms below? You hold all power and might in your fist—no one stands a chance against you! And didn’t you make the natives of this land leave as you brought your people Israel in, turning it over permanently to your people Israel, the descendants of Abraham your friend? They have lived here and built a holy house of worship to honor you, saying, ‘When the worst happens—whether war or flood or disease or famine—and we take our place before this Temple (we know you are personally present in this place!) and pray out our pain and trouble, we know that you will listen and give victory.’

10-12 “And now it’s happened: men from Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir have shown up. You didn’t let Israel touch them when we got here at first—we detoured around them and didn’t lay a hand on them. And now they’ve come to kick us out of the country you gave us. O dear God, won’t you take care of them? We’re helpless before this vandal horde ready to attack us. We don’t know what to do; we’re looking to you.”

13 Everyone in Judah was there—little children, wives, sons—all present and attentive to God.

14-17 Then Jahaziel was moved by the Spirit of God to speak from the midst of the congregation. (Jahaziel was the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah the Levite of the Asaph clan.) He said, “Attention everyone—all of you from out of town, all you from Jerusalem, and you King Jehoshaphat—God’s word: Don’t be afraid; don’t pay any mind to this vandal horde. This is God’s war, not yours. Tomorrow you’ll go after them; see, they’re already on their way up the slopes of Ziz; you’ll meet them at the end of the ravine near the wilderness of Jeruel. You won’t have to lift a hand in this battle; just stand firm, Judah and Jerusalem, and watch God’s saving work for you take shape. Don’t be afraid, don’t waver. March out boldly tomorrow—God is with you.”

18-19 Then Jehoshaphat knelt down, bowing with his face to the ground. All Judah and Jerusalem did the same, worshiping God. The Levites (both Kohathites and Korahites) stood to their feet to praise God, the God of Israel; they praised at the top of their lungs!

20 They were up early in the morning, ready to march into the wilderness of Tekoa. As they were leaving, Jehoshaphat stood up and said, “Listen Judah and Jerusalem! Listen to what I have to say! Believe firmly in God, your God, and your lives will be firm! Believe in your prophets and you’ll come out on top!”

21 After talking it over with the people, Jehoshaphat appointed a choir for God; dressed in holy robes, they were to march ahead of the troops, singing,

Give thanks to God,
His love never quits.

22-23 As soon as they started shouting and praising, God set ambushes against the men of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir as they were attacking Judah, and they all ended up dead. The Ammonites and Moabites mistakenly attacked those from Mount Seir and massacred them. Then, further confused, they went at each other, and all ended up killed.

24 As Judah came up over the rise, looking into the wilderness for the horde of barbarians, they looked on a killing field of dead bodies—not a living soul among them.

25-26 When Jehoshaphat and his people came to carry off the plunder they found more loot than they could carry off—equipment, clothing, valuables. It took three days to cart it away! On the fourth day they came together at the Valley of Blessing (Beracah) and blessed God (that’s how it got the name, Valley of Blessing).

27-28 Jehoshaphat then led all the men of Judah and Jerusalem back to Jerusalem—an exuberant parade. God had given them joyful relief from their enemies! They entered Jerusalem and came to The Temple of God with all the instruments of the band playing.

29-30 When the surrounding kingdoms got word that God had fought Israel’s enemies, the fear of God descended on them. Jehoshaphat heard no more from them; as long as Jehoshaphat reigned, peace reigned.

31-33 That about sums up Jehoshaphat’s reign over Judah. He was thirty-five years old when he became king and ruled as king in Jerusalem for twenty-five years. His mother was Azubah daughter of Shilhi. He continued the kind of life characteristic of his father Asa—no detours, no dead-ends—pleasing God with his life. But he failed to get rid of the neighborhood sex-and-religion shrines—people continued to pray and worship at these idolatrous god shops.

34 The rest of Jehoshaphat’s life, from start to finish, is written in the memoirs of Jehu son of Hanani, which are included in the Royal Annals of Israel’s Kings.

35-37 Late in life Jehoshaphat formed a trading syndicate with Ahaziah king of Israel—which was very wrong of him to do. He went in as partner with him to build ocean-going ships at Ezion Geber to trade with Tarshish. Eliezer son of Dodavahu of Mareshah preached against Jehoshaphat’s venture: “Because you joined forces with Ahaziah, God has shipwrecked your work.” The ships were smashed and nothing ever came of the trade partnership [end]

You know I bolded the words I wanted you to see, they are not in the Bible. (:0) I really want you to see the correlation between worship and God’s movement.

Hey, let me tell you a fantastic example! Back when I was single and living alone, my lights suddenly went out. At the time, a horrible storm was making lots of noise in the middle of the night.

I was a little frightened because it sounded like a roller coaster was nearby. It wasn’t a tornado, but it was a severe storm and had my complete attention. Living in Kansas you learn not to take any storms lightly. This one had my full attention as I laid in my bed wondering if the roof was going to fly off. I had no basement, so I prayed and prayed for protection. I also prayed my lights would come back on. I was frightened.

As I continued to pray God would turn my lights back on, I felt the Holy Spirit lead me to worship God for what I had just prayed for (lights and electricity).

Honestly, it felt very strange thanking God for lights as I was sitting in the dark, but I did.

I kid you not… it wasn’t very long after I started praising God for my lights and electricity being on that …THEY CAME ON!!!!

Want to hear the wildest part? I was the only house with a porch light on. Everyone else’s light were off for about a day!

God is powerful and He is real. That night, all alone in that scary house, He taught me the power of worship.

I haven’t gone to any Seminary but I do know Jesus personally and I know that praise and worship are related to His moving in your life.

Acts 16 (from the Message Bible Translation – which I love!)

25-26 Along about midnight, Paul and Silas were at prayer and singing a robust hymn to God. The other prisoners couldn’t believe their ears. Then, without warning, a huge earthquake! The jailhouse tottered, every door flew open, all the prisoners were loose.

27-28 Startled from sleep, the jailer saw all the doors swinging loose on their hinges. Assuming that all the prisoners had escaped, he pulled out his sword and was about to do himself in, figuring he was as good as dead anyway, when Paul stopped him: “Don’t do that! We’re all still here! Nobody’s run away!”

29-31 The jailer got a torch and ran inside. Badly shaken, he collapsed in front of Paul and Silas. He led them out of the jail and asked, “Sirs, what do I have to do to be saved, to really live?” They said, “Put your entire trust in the Master Jesus. Then you’ll live as you were meant to live—and everyone in your house included!”

32-34 They went on to spell out in detail the story of the Master—the entire family got in on this part. They never did get to bed that night. The jailer made them feel at home, dressed their wounds, and then—he couldn’t wait till morning!—was baptized, he and everyone in his family. There in his home, he had food set out for a festive meal. It was a night to remember: He and his entire family had put their trust in God; everyone in the house was in on the celebration.

35-36 At daybreak, the court judges sent officers with the instructions, “Release these men.” The jailer gave Paul the message, “The judges sent word that you’re free to go on your way. Congratulations! Go in peace!”

37 But Paul wouldn’t budge. He told the officers, “They beat us up in public and threw us in jail, Roman citizens in good standing! And now they want to get us out of the way on the sly without anyone knowing? Nothing doing! If they want us out of here, let them come themselves and lead us out in broad daylight.”

38-40 When the officers reported this, the judges panicked. They had no idea that Paul and Silas were Roman citizens. They hurried over and apologized, personally escorted them from the jail, and then asked them if they wouldn’t please leave the city. Walking out of the jail, Paul and Silas went straight to Lydia’s house, saw their friends again, encouraged them in the faith, and only then went on their way. [End]

This experience Paul and Silas had is one of my favorite scriptures in the Bible. You’ve got to understand they were in dire straits. Prisons back in the day were nothing like prisons nowadays in the U.S. – with recreation areas and such.

These prisons were rough. My husband has preached sermons on the prisons not having places for prisoners to even use the bathroom. In those days, folks in the prisons suffered.

Not to mention the fact that Paul and Silas were in lots of trouble just because they were followers of the Way (what they called Christians back then).

In spite of all of this, they decided to worship God. That scripture has challenged me for years. Whenever I’ve had a hard time in my life the last thing I wanted to do is worship.

In fact, when life hit me particularly hard worship was a struggle. So was prayer.

At any rate, experience is like the one I described above has taught me the power of praise and worship. Things happen when we worship God. I can’t explain it all because I don’t have the theological training to do so, but I am an expert in experience with God.

I do believe when we praise and worship something happens in the spirit world.

I believe angels are Unleashed I believe God stands up and he acts in a way he may not have if it were not for worship.

If you’re a praise and worship leader, I honor you right now. You’re doing a powerful and meaningful role in the body of Christ. Something in the heavenlies is happening as you lead congregations and groups in worship.

Another interesting part of Paul and Silas worship experience is the fact that someone even got saved as a result of the beginning of worship! The guard fell to his knees and asked how could he be a Christian – all because worship spawned action from heaven.

As the young people say don’t “sleep” on worship.

It’s powerful it’s so much more than emotion it’s more than bobbing your head to a cool song. It’s Supernatural. It’s mighty and it’s powerful beyond what you can see or feel.

As Rabbi Schneider, from “The Jewish Jesus” said, the very heart of worship is abandoning ourselves and putting God first in everything. He referenced Abraham’s obedience (to give His son) as a perfect example of true worship.  Now, we know that God gave that illustration once in Biblical times and He doesn’t ask us to such things nowadays. But still, God still requires complete and totally submission from you as your expression of worship. It may look different from mine and mine may look different from hers, but true worship is a heart thing that only God can judge. No one else is qualified. (This is an excerpt from my post “Why do people worship like that?”)

Your worship must be intentional and Spirit-influenced.

During this sort of worship…God’s heart has a bulls-eye on it. Your intention is to reach His heart with your praise and to exalt Him with your adulation.

When that happens, in spite of the hundreds [or even thousands] of people around you; you are instantly alone with Jesus Christ.

In the spirit, you are kneeling at the throne; bowing at His feet; lifting your hands in praise for who He is- all He has done; all He is doing and everything He will do. This is an excerpt from my blog post “Words of worship to God”

John 4:21-24 The Message (MSG)
21-23 “Believe me, woman, the time is coming when you Samaritans will worship the Father neither here at this mountain nor there in Jerusalem. You worship guessing in the dark; we Jews worship in the clear light of day. God’s way of salvation is made available through the Jews. But the time is coming—it has, in fact, come—when what you’re called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter.

23-24 “It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.”

Acts 2:47 The Message (MSG)
46-47 They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God. People in general liked what they saw. Every day their number grew as God added those who were saved.

Revelation 5:13-14 The Message (MSG)

11-14 I looked again. I heard a company of Angels around the Throne, the Animals, and the Elders—ten thousand times ten thousand their number, thousand after thousand after thousand in full song:
The slain Lamb is worthy!
Take the power, the wealth, the wisdom, the strength!
Take the honor, the glory, the blessing!
Then I heard every creature in Heaven and earth, in underworld and sea, join in, all voices in all places, singing:
To the One on the Throne! To the Lamb!
The blessing, the honor, the glory, the strength,
For age after age after age.

The Four Animals called out, “Oh, Yes!” The Elders fell to their knees and worshiped.

11-14 I looked again. I heard a company of Angels around the Throne, the Animals, and the Elders—ten thousand times ten thousand their number, thousand after thousand after thousand in full song:

Take the honor, the glory, the blessing!

Then I heard every creature in Heaven and earth, in underworld and sea, join in, all voices in all places, singing:

The blessing, the honor, the glory, the strength,
For age after age after age.

The Four Animals called out, “Oh, Yes!” The Elders fell to their knees and worshiped.

I will be joyful in God my Savior.

his love endures forever.”

Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud,
