SONG FOR PRAYER:

CCD: Christian music

October 20, 2008 2 comments

APOSTALIC WORK — Today in 10th grade CCD class, we tried to review some things we’ve discuss so far by adding some discussion on application.  We used some mainstream Christian songs and studied their lyrics to bring a Christian perspective to practical life issues.  Here are the songs we used …

Life, sin, shame, forgiveness … “Dare You to Move” by Switchfoot

 

Heaven … “I Can Only Imagine” by MercyMe

 

Effectiveness of prayer … “This is a Call” by Thousand Foot Krutch

 

Dating relationships … “Gone” by TobyMac

 

Parable of the Lost Sheep (Mt 18:10-14) … “Leaving 99” by Audio Adrenaline

Group 1 Crew + Forgive Me (song)

It looks like Thursdays are going to be my YouTube & christian music post day.  I’m not a huge Christian hip-hop fan, but when I hear something good, it’s worth noting (especially if it can hold its weight with greats like TobyMac, Grits & KJ-52).  I saw newcomer Group 1 Crew perform at the Winter Jam Christian Music Festival at UM last month and I still can’t get 4000 people singing this chorus out of my head.  This is “Forgive Me.”  [Lyrics at LyricsMode.com]

Behind the Song:
This song was birthed after a deep time of prayer in which we discovered the need for understanding how God viewed us in the light of his forgiveness. So many times as humans we like to place humanistic qualities on God simply because we can’t comprehend how He can love such unlovable creatures…and yet He still does. This song gives every listener the courage to believe that with God, it’s never too late to be forgiven. When you embrace this grace He’s made available to us, there’s nothing you ever need to fear. No valley in your life is permanent…” – Group 1 Crew
