3 Word Lessons: Stack The Set, Prepare For Spontaneity, Follow The Leader

Here are some more 3 Word Lessons for worship leaders and teams that are meant to stick.

Stack The Set.

Make the majority of your worship set out of songs the congregation knows and loves. Familiarity, when tastefully applied, can fan into flame the expression of people’s hearts. You’ll be amazed at the results. Stack the set.

Prepare For Spontaneity.

Diligently plan the songs, transitions, and order of your set for the gathering. Then, after your band is secure and you are confident, you have more grace all around to deviate in moments from the prepared set to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Prepare for spontaneity.

Follow The Leader.

If you are the worship leader, keep consistent eye contact with your pastor for any directional input. If you are a band member, keep your eyes on the worship leader and go where they go. If everyone is following a leader, it brings a sense of clarity to a worship gathering. Follow the leader.

Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
