    worship is the form of praying to God with closed eyes and a straight forward prayer from the depth of the heart which if sincere and true will reach God and he will answer you through ways known to Him.

    We should practice our hearts for worship by having a proper relationship with God. We serve God throughout the week. What we do for other individuals, we do for Him. The heart from the worship could be the worship from the cardiovascular.
     
    Jesus known as us all to model His life. He was the greatest example of a servant which came to serve and not be served. A true worshiper seeks to dwell a complete Christian life. He is not one who worships only when he wants to, but is worshiping through his obedience every minute of every day. By taking our eyes off of us and placing them on God and others.
     
    Once we take our eyes off of what we do and place them on God and His will, we will begin to understand what it means to be a true worshiper. By striving to be like Christ, worshiping Him daily and serving our fellow man and brothers before ourselves.
     
    To model to all a worshiper life style that is reflective of Christ.We are to worship God with our entire being not holding anything back. Not caring what others think about us. If there is a contradiction between what we say that we know to be true and our actions or external expressions, we are guilty of deception. We are hypocrites. People who really don't know about God or have a false knowledge of God cannot worship him in truth.
     
    In its simplest form, worship assets telling or showing God how important we think He is. We are not called to simply be "Christians". We were created with the sole purpose to glorify God; all of us were made to worship. The reason we must define worship is that worship defines us. It defines our entire purpose for living. Worship must extend to our individual lives, seven days a week. Worship involves our entire lives.Worship can be defined as the continually repeated self-surrender of the Christian in obedience of life.

    It is the offering of our lives, moment by moment, to He who created us for nothing less.

    "Christian" is label; therefore, the definition of "worship" is confined to the pinners of  their religion.

    This pretty much sums it up.

    “YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”
    Luke 10:27

    Worship God as a sinner who wants a new life in Jesus Christ who is begging for mercy for a change that only God can bring to pass. When he heals you, do not think of yourself any higher or holier than others. Remember to approach His throne with confidence for He is your Father and He loves you. Enter His court with thanksgiving, praise, gratitude, and jubilation.  Ask yourself this question, "Is there anything too hard for the Lord?" and hear Him say, "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell in it"

    Here are twelve characteristics to find around God's throne that can heal us like the leaves of the tree of life:

    1) GOODNESS: His goodness repeals the sinner and solicits the saints

    2) TENDERNESS: His tenderness estranges the sinner but pities the saints

    3) GENTLENESS: His gentleness spooks the sinner but touches the saints

    4) LOVINGKINDNESS: His lovingkindness resists the sinner but sustains the saints

    5) KINDNESS: His kindness hardens the sinner but empowers the saints

    6) FORGIVENESS: His forgiveness sickens the sinner but heals the saints

    7) FAITHFULNESS: His faithfulness weakens the sinners but upholds the saints

    8) AWESOMENESS: His awesomeness empties the sinners but fills the saints

    9) HOLINESS: His holiness consumes the sinner but purifies the saints

    10) BRIGHTNESS: His brightness blinds the sinner but enlightens the saints

    11) GREATNESS: His greatness stings the sinner but inspires the saints

    12) RIGHTEOUSNESS: His righteousness distracts the sinner but leads the saints
