We are the women of proverbs.


a really "hot topic" in my church and youth group (which im moving away from in one week) is if girls can/should be able to lead songs and prayers in a home bible study setting. i understand that we, as women are not to take authority over a man and TEACH him but what about praising or talking to our Lord? what do yall think?

The Bible says that your sons and daughters shall prophesy, and it also says that we're all sons in God. Therefore I think that we're equal spirit wise. God has different works for different people, and if a woman is placed by God to teach then so be it.

In the Bible most of the people that it talks about praising, talking, and worshiping the lord were women. Mary Magdelene was the first priest after the ressurection of Jesus if you think about it. She was the one to go and teach the good news first. Mirium danced and sang praises to the Lord. Esther and Ruth were also great women of praise and worship. We're all made to communicate and praise God in worship.

I have a lot of people tell me that the stuff that I do is wrong because I'm a worshiper who dances. I'm on a dance ministry team, and singing is also my calling. There are a few who will say that dancing is wrong unless you're in the spirit, but the Bible says that David danced before the Lord with all of his might. It never said when the spirit moved up on him, and you don't have to be in the spirit to praise God anyway. A lot of people don't think that it's right for a woman to sing, dance, praise, worship, pray, read the Bible, teach a man, but I don't see anything wrong with it. Since the Bible says that we're all sons of God, there is no specific gender given. I tell them to look at it like this, as long as it's glorifying God and you're praising and worshiping him, who cares? It's all about him and it's all for him.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that we are to take authority over a man, because the Bible says that the man is the head of the house or whatever, but I also believe that the Bible also speaks of an equal partnership somewhere. In a relationship it's common knowledge to know that you teach each other things, especially spiritually, that's a huge part of growing. I don't see any problem with it though unless you're challenging each other. I say worship, praise, dance, sing, and teach about God until you can't anymore. As long as it's all about Him, you're doing it to praise and worship Him, and He is getting glorified, what's wrong about it?
