Worship Leader: Johan Christopher
Johan says, “While preparing for the Sunday worship, I was constantly bombarded with verses from the Bible that talked about our need to communicate with God through our mouths, in praise, in prayer & in proclamation. In ‘Psalm 34:1’ David tells us that he praises God at “all times”. Incidentally ‘Psalm 34:1’ also mentions that he wrote this Psalm while recalling a time in his life when he was trying to escape death. This leaves us Christians with no excuse to ‘not praise God’, irrespective of what we are going through! All the songs were chosen in relation to this theme.”
The song list:
- Shout to the North & the South:
“And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.’”
- Shout to the Lord:
“Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music;”
- All heaven declares:
“Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”
Psalm 19 (1-4)
1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.”
- You deserve the glory:
Jeremiah 10: 6 & 7
6 No one is like you, LORD;
you are great,
and your name is mighty in power.
7 Among all the wise leaders of the nations
and in all their kingdoms,
there is no one like you.
- Praise His Name:
“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.”
- Stand (A special song by Surina Christopher)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
