We the Russian speaking Christians are really trying to use more songs written by disciples. We present to you the Russian version of this new song as sung at 3 AM during the all-night worship event known as Thanksgiving Worship Night of Kiev Church of Christ.
Every year the worship leaders, part-singers, musicians, performers and everyone who has a heart to worhsip God in songs join in the Worship Conference for Eurasian Churches. This year it will take place in Kiev, Ukriane 10-12 of May, 2013 hosted by the Kiev Church of Christ with 2000 brothers and sisters. Here we would like to present our video-invitation. Welcome to Kiev!
“Praise the LORD, O my soul." Psalm 104:1
“All my inmost being – praise his holy name!” Psalm 103:2
"March on, my soul; be strong!" Judges 5:21
Did you ever hear a song leader encourage the church before a specific song “The lyrics of this song are a prayer – It’s a great song for us to speak directly to God!”? “O Lord prepare me, to be a sanctuary..”
Or maybe – “Look someone in the eye as we sing with this song! Let’s encourage one another”? “Rise up O Men of God!”
These are examples of worship lyrics that are primarily “Vertical” or “Horizontal” in nature. With one the communication is directed to God. In the latter, it is directed towards one another.

I was recently asked to share what worship means to me with the rest of our worship team during our devotional at practice. As I prepared looking for passages of Scripture that have impacted my worship over the years, I thought about how my understanding of worship has evolved and how that has changed my worship.
This day in church history.
We all know "Lo! What a Glorious Sight", "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross", "Joy to the World" and "Alas! And did My Savior Bleed?"
These are the works of Isaac Watts born this day in 1674.
A 300 year shelf-life in the general worship of Christendom with so many songs is quite an exploit! Here is the rest of the story from Christianity.com.
In just a few days we will all be flooding into the ATT Center arena every evening during our World Discipleship Summit. Just imagine the scene. Thousands upon thousands of joyful disciples and their families coming together to worship, to fellowship together, to dream together, and to hear an inspiring message from the Word of God. It promises to be a time of transformation for all who desire it.
