is one of the most natural things that we do as humans. Witness the hoards of fans at football matches, cheering and chanting their heroes forwards. Or the flocks of paparazzi and TV reporters around the latest Hollywood celebrity, all desperately trying to get that
shot or interview. It seems as though humanity is obsessed with adoring things.
However, when we take a moment to adore God
, a transformation happens. We are no longer held captive by the concerns of this life. Our hearts are lifted to that timeless place where God is. Here we can stay for a while, gazing at the beauty of His majesty, our spirits renewed by the power of His presence.
Gathered together on this page are a number of good Christian prayers of adoration, including a Eucharist adoration prayer, the Catholic prayer
of St Faustina and a short inspiring Anglican
worship prayer. There's also a great meditation video to watch, and bible verses about adoration
Prayer of Adoration to God
Almighty God, how wonderful you are.
Creation cries out in awe of your power,
The universe shines with your glory and greatness.
Almighty Lord, how majestic you are.
Each atom and molecule carry a tiny part of your plan,
Every microbe speaks of your breathtaking beauty.
Almighty Father, how awesome you are.
The mountain ranges reflect your heights,
And the gentle valleys your mercy.
Almighty One, how creative you are.
Each tree and flower are filled with your wonder and bounty,
Each life resounds with intricacy and miracles.
I will lift my eyes to you, my wonderful, majestic, awesome God.
