"After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the LORD and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever.” ~2 Chronicles 20:21

Sunday SetList - May 15, 2011
This is my first worship set list blog post as a participant in the "Sunday Setlists" at TheWorshipCommunity.com. Our worship meetings have been powerful lately, so I want to document what God is doing as we gather in His name, and share it with you. It's incredible to see what God is doing through individuals in the church as well as in our small town. My God is an AWESOME God!!
Furious (by Jeremy Riddle) – A
You Are Good (by Bethel Church) – E (NOTE: Corrected artist)
Worthy, You Are Worthy (by Matt Redman)– B
I Exalt Thee (traditional – chorus only) – B
Rivers (by Eric Hurtgen) – E
Forever (by Chris Tomlin - B
(Note: Our team normally does not play exactly like the recordings. Every song is an arrangement from our band.)
This week, we did not have a drummer. The only instrumentation was 2 electric guitars, acoustic guitar, bass, keys/organ, and two vocals. Even though we did not have the rhythm of the drums, worship was amazing! After the music portion, our pastor made an observation that resonated with me. He said, “An amazing thing happens during our worship. As we ascribe to how worthy God our Father is to us, all of a sudden there is a realization of our value to God.” So true! The worship continued as our pastor gave the message. At the end of the message, the pastor welcomed our elementary school children who have been learning and praying about prophecy. The children shared what they heard from God and prayed over people who needed healing. I was amazed at the response from the number of adults coming forward seeking the healing prayers of the children in our church.
I love how the Lord also speaks to our children. It's a beautiful thing!
