It's hard to believe the holidays are already upon us. However, many worship teams are already preparing for their Christmas and Advent services! We'd like to share ten of our favorite Christmas songs with you from this season, both new and old, to help you enter into this season with joy! You'll find free song resources below. We hope these help you transition into the holidays as we celebrate our Savior.
Spurred on and inspired by Louie's prayer from Worship Night In America, we are inviting EVERY church across the nation to carve out a moment in your services this coming Sunday to invite your church into a posture to pray for their family, community and nation in light of the upcoming election. Louie Giglio led a timely and impactful moment that reminds us that the healing of our nation rests on the prayers of God's people. To get an idea of what that moment might look like, watch the video below.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
Chris Tomlin, Matt Maher, and Matt Redman rewrote the ancient prayer, Kyrie Eleison (which means "Lord Have Mercy"), in response to the unrest and uncertainty of today. This historical phrase is the first part and simplest form of the 5th century Jesus Prayer. The ancient church would sing a hymn of praise and then read The Jesus Prayer to 'reset' and to say once again "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner." This prayer is taken from Luke 18:10-14.

This past Tuesday a powerful moment of unity occurred in over 400 cinemas and churches across the United States. Presented by Chris Tomlin, 'WORSHIP NIGHT IN AMERICA: An Evening of Unity and Prayer for our Country' provided an opportunity for the Church to gather, pray and lift up the name of Jesus.
