Prayer & Worship: Ways to Worship in a Small Group
Ways to Worship in a Small Group

The purpose of including worship is to turn the focus toward God and away from the activities and concerns of the day.

There are many ways to lead others in your group into worship. Here is a list of a few ideas you may want to try.

Find out if someone in your group can play the guitar or piano or sing. If not, CDs work just fine. Print up the music ahead of time or buy the DVDs with the music, words, and video already created.

Scripture Selections
Reading the Psalms together out loud or individually is a great place to start. Other passages like 1 Corinthians 13 and prayers from Paul's epistles make great entry points into worship.

Select a devotional or passages out of books that put your focus and attention on God. Use a book such as Knowing God by J.I. Packer, or from authors such as A.W. Tozer, Oswald Chambers, and others.

You don't have to sing the hymns. You can read them. After reading a verse, have group members offer words of praise and thanks.

Perhaps your group doesn't like to sing, however, you can still incorporate music. Group members can reflect quietly and pray while a CD is playing.
