The perfect church service would be the one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God. But every novelty prevents this. It fixes our attention on the service itself, and thinking about worship is a different thing than worshipping ... 'Tis mad idolatry that makes the service greater than the god.
- C.S. Lewis
Let me praise you like a songbird and dance across Your skies. Show my thanks and all my wonder that Your Son came here to die. My every breath is Yours to give; yet, when I fail You, You will forgive. My love is all I have to give. I’m here to worship, You.

Does one songbird say to the next, “My voice is the loveliest?” No, they just sing. Or when they fly do, they rival for the lead role? No, they just dance. The true beauty of Nature? Her blind faith. -by Lois Macdona
There was a sweet time, not so long ago, when we gave ourselves permission to stop and smell the daisies. When we would pause at daybreak and bathe in the cleansing sound of nature's "dawn chorus." When morning cried out to humanity, join heaven's opening symphony. Worship in its purest form. -by Lois Macdonald
“Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't.”- John Piper
"Prayer is not what is done by us, but rather what is done by the Holy Spirit in us. "
