My name is Sherry Prickett and with the exception of moving away for a few years after my husband EC, and I were married, Bible Way has been my home. It is where we chose to raise our four children. I have led our Praise Ministry since 2010. We are blessed to have a team that loves to minister through singing and playing for the Lord.
My favorite chapter is Psalms 100 and it says to make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.
I love these verses, because it says that God's mercy is everlasting! That means His mercy is forever and that His truth is here for every generation and that includes ours. Worship is not about getting in front of the church to sing and raise our hands, it is much deeper than that. Worship is to enter God’s presence; to talk to him. If you will invite Him in and open your heart to receive, then you will experience His touch. You see, worship is giving yourself unto Him. Once you do this, then Jesus will pour down his Spirit upon you! Worship is us communicating with our God and that is what we should all desire.
