But the Father seeks worshipers (see John 4:23)! Notice that God seeks "worshipers," not "worship."
He does not need our worship, but he is fervently seeking those who have adopted the life-style and mindset of a worshiper.

There is power in praise.
When we stop fighting our battles in our own strength we begin to praise God, we allow God to release His power into our world on our behalf.
Praise is literally an instrument of warfare – Jehoshophat was king and Judah was being invaded by Moabites, Ammonites and the Edomites. His lookouts saw a great multitude coming to attack. So Jehoshophat prayed and fasted, and the Lord answered through a prophet that said, “This is what the Lord says, ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s Tomorrow, go down against them. You will see them coming up the ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the valley facing the Wilderness of Jeruel. You do not have to fight this battle. Position yourselves, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord. He is with you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Tomorrow go out to face tehm, for the Lord is with you. Then Jehoshapat bowed with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord to worship Him. Then the Levites from the sons of Kohathites and the Korahites stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel shouting in a loud voice.” (2 Chronicles 20:15-19)
This is a key passage to understand the power of praise.
Praise is an act of faith.
By praising God, the Levites were asserting their belief that God was going to do what He said He would.
Keep in mind, “praise is about what God has done.” God said He would do something, so as far as the Levites were concerned, God had already done it! It was a done deal. So they praised Him for it!
Look at the results found in 2 Chronicles 20:21-22
When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the LORD and those who praised Him in holy attire, as they went out before the army and said, "Give thanks to the LORD, for His loving kindness is everlasting." When they began singing and praising, the LORD set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were routed.
Another translation says, “the moment they began their shouts and praises the Lord set an ambush against (their enemies)”.
Maybe right now God is saying the same thing to you. “Do not be afraid or dismayed, the battle is mine!”
Are you willing to let God work on your behalf? That is called faith. And it is activated by praising God.
God is worthy of our praises
Psalm 48:1 “Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise.”
Martin Luther said, “A person cannot praise god unless he understands that there is nothing in himself worthy of praise but that all that is worthy of praise is of God and from God.”
Praise lifts the heaviness.
