I was looking through my old blogs. I was thinking about Songs; As Prayer it’s apart of ChurchLife. Hope all is well with you.

Songs As Prayer
For Me—It’s a Very UNIQUE Day. I plan to Seize This Day…It’s the start of a Very Special Week.
Lenten Season begins on Ash Wednesday, February 25th. I’m planning to take the Lenten Journey to Easter ’09…Living in the Kingdom. I will have the opportunity to be in the Upper Room for a special gathering on Ash Wednesday. I believe this Journey to Jerusalem will be special.
Enjoy the LAST Week of February ’09.
Have A Blessed Day!
I’ve been thinking, when did I get into liking prayer songs? I didn’t grew up in church. I didn’t like singing church songs.
Back then I wasn’t a “church goer.” But, I came to Word of Life Church on September 17, 1993. This was the first church that I have attended on a regular basis.
My spirit grew attached to WOLC music. It was a bit different then what I’ve been hearing. Yeah, it was different. It’s alive and well.
That first night that I was there I saw the words to the songs on the overhead. Where I visited at church, we had to hold anything in our hands. It was through my return visits to WOLC, I began like the music. I had the desire to want to learn the songs as quickly as I could.
In my early days of attending WOLC, there was one song that I remember that is a prayer song. “O Lord, You’re Beautiful” That was one of the first songs that I couldn’t hear a certain word. The word face and faith sounded the same. Yeah, it was so weird.
But through the years, I heard a lot of prayer songs. I began to memorized some of those songs. I prayed them. I recall during the season that I was apart of the worship team at Word of Life, I had trouble singing some songs.
I prayed. God help me sing these songs. I grew in singing songs. Mainly, the songs that were prayer. There is something about singing prayer songs. I see some songs as prayers.
I have realized during the last 7 1/2 + years, prayer songs have been my interest. I remember looking at hymnals. I don’t read music, but the songs that I pick out to sing were prayer songs.
I don’t know why I choose prayer songs. I tend to see more in those songs. There are some songs that I make out of prayer songs. There are some fun songs that I like as well.
I believe that God wants us to truly worship Him in spirit and in truth. We were created for worshiping God. There are some serious songs that we speak that make me think about what we are sing. There are times that I have fun with happy songs. We shall put ourselves in praise and worship.
May God help us praise and worship Him. May we should honor God in praise and worship. No matter what song we are singing, whether we don’t know the song or can’t hear the words, we should enter in His presence with thanksgiving. What we do is not for show. It’s for what God has done for us.

Songs As Prayer
Let Your Mercy Rain On Us
Thank You, LORD
Let Your Mercy Rain On Us and Thank You, LORD are prayer songs.
Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When God brings back the captivity of His people, Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad. Psalm 53:6
