Points to Remember
-Praise, including singing, is the way to approach God with our prayers.
-Praise and worship is a form of prayer because it too is a form of communication/communing with God.
-Priests of the Old Testament offered animal sacrifices to God. We, as believers, offer spiritual sacrifices to Him in the form(s) of praise, worship, and prayer.
-God has given the Body of Christ authority in prayer to “stand in the gap” for others as intercessors, petitioning and pleading the causes of unbelievers, as well as fellow believers in Christ.
-The Word of God calls the Body of Christ, corporately, or as a whole, “ a royal priesthood”, with Christ, the head, being the High Priest.
-When we ourselves are in need of the Lord’s grace and might in the midst of trials and temptations, we are told to go before God’s throne of grace for help.
