Before the call to worship we have been thinking of why we do what we do in the service or worship.
So far we have though why we are called, what the call is, and how as we are called we respond in praise. Then about prayer, how we pray, ie standing, what we pray in our two blocks of prayer and today we thought what we are to say in response. Now we’re Presbyterians and there’s one thing we don’t do and that’s get too excited about anything but especially in worship.
Yet in all that we do in worship it should be founded upon and agreeable to the Word of God. Therefore in keeping with Scripture (Ps. 41:13; 72:19; 89:52; 106:48, 1 Chr. 16:36; Neh. 8:6; Rev. 5:14; 19:4, 1Cor. 14:16, and, therefore we should say Amen, as we respond together, as the word is read, sung, preached, prayed as we do it together, and we seek to be obedient to God’s word and God’s Word directs us to say “Amen!” So let us try, to take a baby step, and after the prayers, if we agree with what is being prayed, Say AMEN!
