The Charismatic Prayer Meeting FAQ
Why Do We Sing?
Singing is a way of praying, praising, and worshipping God. St. Augustine said, "He who sings, prays twice." Songs can turn our hearts and thoughts toward God, and help us to understand the presence of Jesus if they are well selected. The meeting should not turn into a songfest. We should PAUSE between songs, readings, prophecies, etc., and LISTEN. This is the time the Holy Spirit can talk to us. We need silence to Reflect and allow the Spirit to work.
(see Colossians 3:16 and Ephesians 5:18-21)
