Girls Write Out
Thursday, May 19, 2011

Maybe you can help me . . . .

I'm so excited. We recently rented a storage unit and I've been able to store boxes of my books there, freeing up a room in our house. I'm now turning that room into a prayer room, complete with trickling fountain (small-sits on a desk), Bible, journal and worship music--(okay, and a few candles, but please don't think I'm a New Ager). :-)

This room is wonderful because I can shut out the critters in our house--a dog and a cat. When I try to pray in the living room--when I kneel by my chair, our dog crawls onto my back and lays down!! I have the picture to prove it, but decided not to share it since it gives an unflattering view of my back side. :-) If I lock the dog out, our cat comes into the room and sits on the chair, meowing.

Anyway, here's my question. I'm not familiar with a lot of the new songs. Just haven't been listening much to the radio. So I'm looking for quiet, worshipful songs. Here's what I have so far:

My Life is in Your Hands
The Potter's Hand
The Prayer
Revelation Song
God with Us

I LOVE those songs. I play them while I write in my journal and they quiet my heart before the Lord. But I've played them over and over and over. So, if you wouldn't mind sharing, could you tell me some of your favorite worship songs so I can add to my list?

Thank you!

Well, sorry, Diann, Colleen named the ones I love. But I also love Great is They Faithfulness, Amazing Grace, and several of the much older ones I can sing by heart because I grew up singing them.

As for your dog climbing onto your back, my cat does that to me in even less appealing circumstances. Let's just say I completely close the bathroom door now.

There is a song called "Audience of One", by Big Daddy Weave, that is my absolute favorite song... every time I hear it, I get this picture of approaching God's throne in worship. It always gets my heart and my thoughts in the right place! "Revelation Song" by Phillips Craig & Dean is another good one!

I love a lot of the older ones and I adore hymns. However, if you are looking for something a bit more contemporary, "Made Me Glad" moves me every time.

I will bless the Lord forever
And I will trust Him at all times
He has delivered me from all fear
And he has set my feet upon a rock

And I will not be moved
And I'll say of the Lord....

You are my shield
My strength
My portion
My shelter
Strong tower
My very present help in time of need

Whom have I in Heaven but you?
There's none I desire beside you
You have made me glad
And I'll say of the Lord....


You are my shield
My strength
My portion
My shelter
Strong tower
My very present help in time of need

If you are looking for some nice worship CDs, Travis Cottrell has some lovely ones.

This one is my absolute favorite, though.

Be My Everything by Tim Hughes, the Hillsong United CD with (of course) Hillsong and Delirious?, Jesus's Name by Ryan Delamore, Glory to the King by Chris Lizotte - just to name a few.

My favorite is an oldie, "Your Beloved" by Vineyard. I also like Hillsong's worship songs like "Eagle's Wings" and "From the Inside Out (Everlasting)".

Mullins,Take it all/Third Day, I'd need a Savior/Among the Thirsty, Don't let go/Adam Cunningham, Mighty to Save/Laura Story,Arms Open Wide/Jason Allen Rich, and finish up with "It is Well"/Gianna Jessen and then research this young vocalist's story...It's amazing! Praying for you.
