Songs of the Redeemed
by Mike Ross
Each year the Committee on Discipleship Ministries (CDM) and Mission to North America (MNA) call our denomination to 50 Days of Prayer for our General Assembly. Mike Ross, pastor of Christ Covenant Church in Matthews NC, is preparing a devotional titled Songs of the Redeemed. The Evangelical Church has always been a singing church, and some would say that Evangelicalism is at its best when it is singing the great hymns of the faith. In times or spiritual awakening a wave of new hymns – the Songs of the Redeemed – have always swept over the church, and swept many into the Kingdom of God. In this 50 Days of Prayer the stories behind the songs of such hymn-writers as Bernard of Clairvaux, Martin Luther, Isaac Watts, Fanny Crosby, Scott Wesley Brown, Keith Getty and Stuart Townend, Hillsong and others will be examined and prayed through. Their impact upon the Church through the ages will encourage us to draw upon their message and music, once again, to renew and refresh our souls.The devotional will include prayer requests from the ten PCA Agencies and Committees.
Orders are no longer being taken, but you can still access a PDF of the devotional.
