Sometimes, praying through worship music is the only way I can connect with God. Worship music has always been a key part of my walk with Jesus. I suppose that’s why I’ve been involved with for over 20 years.

It’s funny how God brings things full circle. As a teen, I helped lead worship at my youth group. There were days I’d spend hours and hours in my room, practicing songs and singing to God through that music. I would turn to music when I was happy and when I was sad. When I couldn’t connect with God in any other way, I could always “talk to Him” through singing songs of worship. Back then, I struggled to read the Bible because of a yet undiagnosed reading disability. But because so many worship songs include verses straight out of the Bible, I could memorize God’s word and recall it when praying. And praying through worship music is still a way I can always connect with God.

I believe music is a special gift from God to all of us. I love how there are so many different types of music that there is literally something for everyone. That’s just more evidence, for me, that our Creator God shows His great love for us.

I encourage you the next time you have a hard time connecting to God’s love, hope, grace, mercy, strength, and leading… click on one of the AllWorship streams and let Him speak to your heart while you pray through the lyrics of the songs.

God bless.
