worship music for sunday, august 9

We'll be using the following readings for Sunday, August 9: 1 Kings 19:4-8, Ephesians 4:25-5:2, and John 6:35, 41-51. As such, the keywords that I'm using to select music for the week are: journey (the concept of a trip, not the band), Communion, presence of God, faith, and the Holy Spirit.

contemporary worship musicWhile everyone has a different way of brainstorming, I find that identifying a few keywords/themes from the text(s) is a great way to start the song selection process. Weeks like this one can be a bit tough, since we've been centering around a Communion-based theme for the past few Sundays.

Nevertheless, there are some great songs out there that might work well with your contemporary service. Some of songs at the top of my list include Wholly Yours (tying in the Ephesians reading to be imitators of God), and Enter This Temple (works great with all 3 readings, as it speaks of Communion, God's presence, and the imitation themes).

As such, below are the top 10 worship songs for this Sunday. If you're looking for some additional song recommendations based on these themes, make sure you check out the searchable Song Index.
