Worship helps to transform our thoughts from self to God. It is not something we create but is a gift of the Holy Spirit that we pray for. Romans 8:26-27 reminds us, “ Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God”.
