2 Praise Songs (With a Neat Purpose!)

~By Sharon Czerwien

Here is a really short post for today!

I recently read through much of the book, Raising Prayerful Kids by Stephanie Thurling and Sarah Holmstrom.

The book’s premise is to give purposeful ideas for teaching children to pray. Honestly, I could not give you a page number or any specific quotes surrounding the following idea, but after reading through the book, I definitely “got to thinking” about some of the creative ways to teach my children to pray.

The following ideas go for adults, too.

Prayers through Song

I have used Christian music in my own life as a prayer to God. I had never thought about sharing it with my children until I read through the above book, though.

When we are not sure what to pray about, we can use Christian songs as a means of prayer.

For example, the song, I Need Thee Every Hour, is an ideal song that can be sung and used as a prayer for God’s strength.

Perhaps you have a “go-to” song that can be turned in to a prayer. (I would love to hear about it!)

Praise Prayers through Song

There’s nothing like a good ‘ole praise song. Whether you are having a rotten day or a great day, a good praise song can quickly put the focus on God and His faithfulness and goodness.

Perhaps you have a favorite hymn or worship song to help you keep your focus on God.

If you would like to hear praise songs that can also be used as a prayer to God, here are two options by the Gettys (and, wow, they are good ones!).

A Concluding Verse

Hebrews 13:15

“Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.”

Praise on,
