Worship is more than a song, a prayer and raising your hands. Worship is much deeper. Worship is a response. There are seven Hebrew words to describe different types of worship: Barak – to kneel or bow, Halal – to praise, to make a show or rave about, (to give a crazy praise), Shachah – to bow down, fall down flat, Tehillah – to sing, glorifying God in song, Todah – an extension of the hand, Yadah – to extend hands, praise thankful, thanksgiving, and Zamar – to touch the strings or parts of a musical instrument. These seven forms of worship are expressive in nature but the real worship comes directly from our heart to the heart of God.
