There are many ways to praise and honor God. One of my favorite ways is through song, whether it be joining the choir during church services or when I’m singing or just listening to inspirational Christian music. I can’t count the times I’ve been moved to tears at the unimaginable power and love of our Lord I feel in music.
My love of contemporary Christian music began many years ago when my sister introduced me to Amy Grant’s music. Today, there’s a growing list of contemporary Christian artists and groups. I’ve compiled a playlist of 20 of my current favorite songs and I hope you’ll find them as inspirational and moving as I do.
This music can either be enjoyed as quiet meditation or background music when you need some reflective time with God or at full volume when you’re ready to celebrate God’s greatness.
Enjoy the whole playlist or choose them individually, below.
But before you do, I’d like to offer a short prayer for you, because there’s a reason you found me today:
Dear Lord, you know the needs of your children. You’ve led them here today to show them a beautiful way they can get to know you through powerful Christian music. Please grant them the peace, strength, wisdom, faith, perseverance, or healing they most need today. Bless all those who listen to this music. Let it speak to their souls and bring them closer to you. Let them see and feel your greatness and love through these songs of praise. Let the words and music in these songs draw them closer to you and inspire them to live their lives pleasing to you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
