Special Menu: Prayers (Oct-Nov)


The Westminster Confession states: “Songs and prayers have a very close affinity in Scripture; some songs are prayers, and some prayers are songs.”  The theme for the newly-updated Special Menu Playlist is “Prayers.” These songs are not about the virtue of prayer or the posture of prayer – but rather these songs are prayers themselves.  We hope these songs give language to your deepest spiritual longings and questions, and your soul experiences a sweet time of fellowship with our Creator.


One of my goals for this playlist was to avoid the modern worship bubble.  It’s easy to assume that since most congregational worship songs are singing to God in the first person that these would qualify as prayer songs.  Yet, I wanted to find more interesting and layered examples of prayers found in worship.  So, on this “special menu,” you’ll find Steven Curtis Chapman singing his questions to God in the wake of a family tragedy, you’ll find Ben Rector wondering if his prayer is even being heard, you’ll find Audrey Assad confessing the areas she (we) often fail to submit to God, and you’ll find Rich Mullins admit to God that “surrender don’t come natural to me.”  We were very intentional with choosing a variety of topics, styles, genres, and inclusion of female and minority voices.  We hope that hearing a wide tapestry of prayer songs is refreshing and healing for your soul.
