Make Worshipping God Your Priority No Matter Your Needs
Many times we feel overwhelmed by our needs and pray so desperately and incessantly about them that we lose our joy and the essence of our relationship with God. Rather than do that, make worshipping God your priority no matter your needs.
We were created to love and worship God. His blessings, His answering our prayers and meeting our needs naturally flow from that. Heck, He evens blesses those who don’t acknowledge Him as He does with the sun, the rain and other elements.
When we lack this understanding or feel so pressed that we forget this, we put the cart before the horse. It’s like we are saying, “Uniti I’m healed, until my bills are paid, etc., I will only talk to God about them.”
But in doing this, we’re hurting God and cheating ourselves. God longs for your company. He wants to hear our petitions but more than, He yearns for our praise and declarations of love for Him.
My brother, my sister, iIt’s the relationship that counts. Once I was praying so hard for something and my friend told me to give it a rest because it was preventing me from enjoying worship and my entire fellowship with the Lord. I realised she was right and took her advice.
Gritting my teeth and praying day and night wasn’t improving the situation I was praying about. It was only making me frustrated and miserable.
Always remember that our God is faithful and He longs to bless you more than you want to be blessed. In fact, He loves you more than you could ever love yourself.
Just give priority to worshipping and glorifying Him. Ask Him for what you need in the process but do that with the confidence that He hears you. And submit to His timing thereafter, knowing that He will bless you in His perfect time.

Yes. Worship brings down God’s presence and that can work out our miracles even without our asking. May the Lord visit you according to your needs in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Thank you very much ma for this, I Iearnt a lot and also I got to know that avoiding God hurts him and we are supposed to draw nearer to him in worship even when it feels like he is not hearing.

At times l get frustrated after praying for the same thing over and over again and it seems like God doesn’t acknowledge the prayer but reading this has made me realize that l was only after what l wanted and forget my relationship with God.

Thank you ma,I have always had this experience in my personal life

Thanks ma’am for this post, it’s really enlightening.
Thanks for enlightening me more on how worship is meant to be a priority and not always petitions.
Most times, we focus solely on asking God for what we need and not acknowledging Him in our lives; which is wrong.
Thank you ma for enlightening us more on this.
The more we worship the Lord Jesus Christ in truth and in spirit, we draw ourselves closer to Him and He in return, holds us firmly in love.
Thank you for this Ma!

After reading this I feel so guilty inside of me, truly God has been faithful to us, but we humans want it our way all the time, we are suppose to praise God at all time (positively and negatively) but we forget who will are in Christ .. Thank you ma for this
I remember encountering someone at the lawn tennis court one certain time, and after she lamented all the depressing situations she has been through, all the Holy spirit led us to do was worship God. We began singing and thanking the Lord. And I’m grateful to God that right now, my course mate is doing fine. Thank you so much ma, for strengthening the believers and unbelievers.
I will serve the Lord my God with all my heart, mind, soul and spirit.
Thanks for this article ma.
Worship to God is what draws me closer to my Father and draws Him closer to me. May I continue in the atmosphere of worship, like the Psalmist said…longing daily for His presence.
Thank you so much ma for this inspiring piece.

Wow it is so edifying to know that worshiping God helps us know God more and it eases pain and bring joy and essence of our relationship with God
If worshipping God draw us closer to God,then it is the key to having a good relationship with Him and therefore a sure way to win His heart when we make appeal .
Wow worship with God can’t be replaced with anything,God enjoys our praise and worship
Matthew 6:33 said seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Our personal relationship with God is important and we should take it seriously
