Matt Redman’s song “The Heart of Worship” started when a congregation lost it’s way to worship. Then found it’s way back.
“When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that’s of worth
That will bless your heart
I’ll bring you more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what you have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart”
“I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about you,
It’s all about you, Jesus”
Joyful In Prayer?
When King David brought back the Ark of the Covenant to the city of Jerusalem, instead of veiling the Ark with a curtain as Moses had done, David surrounded the Ark with musicians and singers, who continually offered up worship and prayer to God day and night without ceasing. That’s right, he placed it in a tent and established praise and worship mixed with music and prayer in the Tabernacle of David (1 Chronicles 15 & 16).
During his reign, there was constant praise and worship, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week before the Ark of the Covenant. For over 33years, they worshiped God wholeheartedly and He blessed the nation of Israel in mighty ways. God promised in Acts 15 that one day He will restore the Tabernacle of David. Harp and Bowl is a foreshadowing of that restoration, and what is done in the spirit of the Tabernacle of David.
Revelation 4 and 5 tells us that this is the kind of worship in heaven around the throne of God. The four living creatures and twenty-four elders fall before the Lamb. Each one holds a harp and a bowl. The harp represents music and the bowl represents the prayers of the believers.
Ephesians 5:19 instructs us to make music in our hearts to the Lord. Also, in 1 Thessalonians 5:16,17, we are told to be joyful always and to pray constantly. Harp and Bowl combines music and prayer, one enhancing the other; worship makes prayer enjoyable and sustainable for longer periods. This allows us to connect with the Holy Spirit and joyfully flow in our prayers. God promised in Isaiah 56:7 to give His worshipers joy in His house of prayer. Many are discovering that through joyful prayerthey are being drawn deeper into the heart of God.
Message for Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019
We will be talking about how the true condition of our soul (mind, will, emotion) impacts the way we perceive and follow God. We will discover the emphasis that the Lord places on the soul and how He makes provisions for the soul to be restored and strengthen.

We are excited to have the ArborWind Trio with us this year at Father’s Vineyard to perform a beautiful collection of classical Christmas music. Karen and Chip Hill will play the clarinets while Frank Watson plays the bassoon. Come join us for an inspiring time of worship as we celebrate the birth of our Savior.
We will be teaching on several key Hebrew words in the Old Testament that are translated “praise,” each having a unique and distinct meaning in the original language. When we learn the applications of these words, we will will be better equipped to adaquately praise the One who is worthy.
Come join us as we study together!
If you have a distorted image of God, you will have a distorted image of yourself. God put you in a place where He would always accept you and be well pleased with who you are. He put you in the safest place ever. He put you in Christ! His grace is the empowering presence of God that enables you to become what He sees when He looks at you. That’s why we must focus on being Christlike.
Oh, He is such a good, good Father!
