Praise Connection

Use word association to praise God.

Leader: This time together is going to be a creative, word and thought association. As the leader, you are going to give a word that describes God. Your group is going to respond by giving other descriptive words and thoughts that come to mind after they hear your word. After they exhaust one word, you will go down the list given below. Go as long as you want, adding your own words, or as short as you desire, according to your time for worship.

Leader, say something like: "God is great."

Group response may be something like: "He is awesome. He is powerful. He is huge."

Leader: "God is truth."

Group: "He is the way. He is our reality. He is dependable."

Other words:


Leader: Continue your worship by praying or having someone else pray.
