It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer,” Jesus said concerning the church (Matthew 21:13). He was quoting from
the Book of Isaiah where this was written. But how often do we hear people refer to the house of God as the house of prayer? Not very often.
My observation has been that a local church’s regularly scheduled meeting for corporate prayer is the least attended of all regularly scheduled opportunities for worship. In over 30 years of preaching and pastoring, I have not come across one exception to this

How important is worship and what role should it play in the Christian life? Throughout Scripture we see worship mentioned in both the Old and New Testament in various ways. David dancing before the Lord, Jesus rejoicing in the Spirit and the outporuing of worship in the early church. Bishop T.D. Jakes shares his idea of worship and what it means to the spiritual life.
Beliefnet: What is worship and what does it mean to you?
Bishop T.D. Jakes:Well for me worship and my understanding of worship comes from the Latin word “worth-ship” and it is where we
express God's worth to us in our lives. Worship is essential to really create an atmosphere for the word of God to flow and for God to move in our lives corporately and individually.
