"Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me." Psalm 42:7.
- Keeping a daily spiritual practice. There are many spiritual practices and it is important to find the right one for you―one that you can do on a regular basis. Spiritual practices keep the embers of worship alive throughout the week.
- Worshiping regularly with others who are seeking the same depth of worship. In the School of the Spirit residencies, we spent an hour each morning in worship together. On the first day, the worship was good, but could be a little superficial. By the fourth or fifth day, the worship was deep and rich.
- Coming to worship with the expectation that you will hear from God. In our meetings, God speaks through us, directly and through the vocal ministry of other Friends. We must prepare for that possibility each time we gather together and know that we may be changed by it.
When have you experienced deep worship? What have you learned about how to encourage and prepare for it?
