“And he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brothers the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God!” (Revelation 22:9)

You shall have no other gods!  There is only One who is worthy of worship, honor, and praise.  Worship the One true God and Him alone.  Do share the word and honor others, but only worship the Lord.  Even well-meaning and with good intentions, we can be led astray to worship others.  We are all called to be servants of the One Lord and Master of us all.  Keep this in mind, lest pride sneak in and deceive your heart.

Lord, I have done this.  I have fallen to my knees and worshiped others and other things rather than You, the Creator of all that exists.  I thank You for the grace I need which enables me to continue the narrow path, but help me to keep these things straight and do this no more.  Help me serve You and let my service be an act of worship.  Help me to correct others if they were to make this mistake concerning me.

Savior of my soul, Holy Spirit that guides me, Father in heaven above, You, the One true God and are worthy of all worship, honor, and praise.  Lead me in true worship so that I may grow in wisdom.  Teach me once again what it means to serve with You whole my whole being.  Guide me this day in humility so that I may observe, see, and love You and my neighbor as opportunity presents itself.  May this day see me worshiping You in thought, word, and deed.  Amen.
