What a wonderful opportunity to put our prayers to music. Prayer Songs can add an emotional depth to our petitions, supplications, and intercessions.
A Prayer Song is very unique from a Worship Song. Although it addresses God directly, there is an added focus on our needs. This is why, as worship leaders, we have to be wise in the way we place them in the song set.
We recommend that they be placed in close proximity to the sermon and at altar times or response times. Try not to interrupt a flow of vertical worship songs with a Prayer Song, as it can take peoples’ attention off of the Person of God to a certain degree.
If you know the message of the sermon and can choose a song to prepare people’s hearts prior to the message with a prayer song, it can be very beneficial. Or, even better, in response to the message. We appreciate your Comments
