Household Worship Guide – Week of February 26th

While it is true that the people of God are to gather corporately to worship on the Lord’s Day (Hebrews 10:24-25), the scriptures also imply that we are to worship God in our homes between each Lord’s day (Deuteronomy 6:7). Emmaus’ weekly Household Worship Guide provides structure to lead singles, married couples, and families with children of all ages in the daily worship of God within the home. The guide simply encourages Christians to read, pray, and sing. In addition, the elder’s of Emmaus encourage the use of the Baptist Catechism for systematic instruction in the Christian faith.

This is a guide and should be used as such. The intent is not for an individual or family to follow the guide point by point, but rather to utilize the resource to craft a daily worship experience appropriate for their home. Keep it simple, keep it short, and keep it consistent (and don’t forget to be patient and flexible too).

For a detailed prayer guide, and for commentary on the catechism, please follow the links provided in the corresponding sections below.

May God be glorified each and every day!

Worship Through Prayer – The Lord’s Prayer 

Baptist Catechism 106 

  • Q. What rule [has] God given for our direction in prayer?
  • A. The whole Word of God is of use to direct us in prayer, but the special rule of direction is that prayer; which Christ taught His disciples, commonly called the Lord’s Prayer. 

Recitation of the Lord’s Prayer

  • Pray then like this:
    ‘Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name.
    Your kingdom come,
    your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.’”
    For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen.
    (Matthew 6:5–14, ESV)

Catechism – Systematic Instruction of God’s Word

Doctrinal Standard BC #62

  • Q. Which is the fourth commandment?

  • A. The fourth commandment is, “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maid servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.”.

Memory Verse(s)

  • “And he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. 28 So the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27–28,ESV).
