Kids praise and worship time should be "simple worship"
Praise and worship thoughts for kids from God's Kids Worship®
This is how Matt Redman summarizes worship: “To worship God is to tell him that we believe him for who he says he is.” ). Matt Redman writes songs for contemporary worship. A song of ascents sung while traveling on the road going to Jerusalem, Mary's song of praise to God, the song of worship sung by the Israelites after the crossing of the Red Sea, worship is simply telling God, “...that we believe him for who he says he is.” (Matt & Beth Redman, “Blessed Be Your Name” pub. Regal Books)
What is Simple Worship? It is worship that can be accomplished by everyone. This worship can be at any place, at any time, and at any volume, either shouted or under our breath, just as we read in Psalm 150.
Praise the Lord! [ed. note: this is a clear command]
Praise God in His sanctuary; [ed. note: in church”]Praise Him in His mighty expanse. [ed. note: and everywhere]Praise Him for His mighty deeds; [ed. note: as we see in scripture and in our lives]Praise Him according to His excellent greatness. [ed. note: as written in the scripture]Psalm 150:1-2 (NASB)
Kids' Songs of Worship and Praise - “Let everything that has breath…”
Simple kids worship looks like this.
- When it can happen? Anytime.
- Where It can happen? Anywhere.
- Who can do it? Anyone.
Kids can worship loudly and it's OK. Psalms 150 says so.
