A Lyrical Worship

Focus on song lyrics to guide in worship.

During this worship time you are going to not only sing but pray some of your favorite lyrics.

As the leader:

  • Choose about 4 of your church's favorite worship songs or hymns. Be sure to have copies of the lyrics for each person in the group.
  • Have the music recorded on tape or CD to use in the group. If you can't find a CD with your chosen songs on it you might ask a musician in your church to join you for the evening to lead the singing.
  • Take a few minutes, before you ever sing, to read aloud the lyrics to each song.
  • Spend some time listening to and singing your chosen songs.
  • Encourage each of the group members to pick a phrase from one of the songs that means something special to them. Ask for volunteers to share their phrase with the group.
  • Lastly, close in prayer by having the group members pray the phrase that they chose. This is a very non-threatening way to encourage prayer, but never insist that everyone pray.
