I did try collaborating all the information about worship and its meaning. If you would like to add your points or suggest improvements then please let me know in the comments below.
The chief purpose of Worship Shiva is to act as a person’s communication with and remembrance of God. By reciting “The Opening”, the first Mantra of the Shiva puran, as required in daily worship, the worshiper can stand before God, thank and praise him, and ask for guidance along the “Straight Path”.
In addition, daily worship reminds Hindu to give thanks for God’s blessings and that submission to God takes precedence over all other concerns, thereby revolving their life around Shiva and submitting to His will. Worship also serves as a formal method of remembering God.
Hindu believe that all Lord of God goddess offered daily prayers only to Shiva and were humble in submission to the oneness of God Shiva. Shiva hindu also believe that the main duty of the all Guru and Brahmin to teach mankind to humbly submit themselves to oneness of God Shiva.
In all holy book, it is written that: “For, Believers are those who, when God is mentioned, feel a tremor in their hearts, and when they hear his signs rehearsed, find their faith strengthened, and put (all) their trust in their Lord
“To those whose hearts, when God is mentioned, are filled with fear, who show patient perseverance over their afflictions, keep up regular prayer, and spend (in charity) out of what we have bestowed upon them.”

To him my prostration.
