Posted August 2, 2016 by

These songs were editorially chosen as our favorite songs released in 2016 between Jan 1 and June 31 for the purpose of congregational worship. The intention is to spread the word on new and exciting prayer songs. The priorities in choosing the music represented here include divine-directed prayer (songs to and about God), biblical faithfulness, poetic beauty and lyric freshness, singability, among others. Please let us know what other songs you feel should be on this list in the comments (try to make sure they released in the first half of this year).

    I appreciate this year the criteria is shared, and it specifies it’s a favorites list. I think last year went a little crazy, if I recall… That said, I’m excited for this list! I know a handful and not the rest; the ones I do know are personal faves as well.

    Is there lead sheet music available for SongDiscovery #129 as there has been in the past? I have had trouble finding any link or info on it. Any help?
