We know these times are difficult, but our faith and personal relationship with God is what keeps us strong. Prayer is the key to our relationship with God and prayer through music is just one powerful way we can have that deep connection all humans are yearning for.
If you have a gifted musician on your leadership team, you may wish to include a song as part of your opening or closing prayer for your online video meetings. We recommend that you mute all participants except the musician and prayer leader, as sound delays and additional background noise will be distracting for prayer.
Here are 5 praise songs you can integrate into your prayer times (in a group or in private) during these times:
1. Since Your Love – United Pursuit
One line we like: ‘I was made by You, I was made for You, I am unfulfilled without full communion’
2. Reckless Love – Cory Ashbury
One line we like: ‘It chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine‘
3. Your Love Defends Me – Matt Maher
One line we like: ‘I will remember, You’re with me in this fight’
4. What A Beautiful Name – Hillsong
One line we like: ‘The heavens are roaring the praise of Your glory for You are raised to life again’
5. King of All Ages – Emmanuelworship
This is a pure praise song that is all about giving God the honour He deserves, and is perfect for a time of praise & giving God glory in your prayer.
One line we like: ‘Let Him enter in, our God and King. Jesus, You are Lord’ (especially when we pray it during Adoration)
