11. Lead Me To The Cross, Hillsong United

Favorite Lyric – “Lead me to the cross where Your love poured out.  Bring me to my knees, Lord I lay me down.  Rid me of myself, I belong to You.  Oh, lead me, lead me to the cross.”

10. I Will Follow, Chris Tomlin

Favorite Lyric – “Where You go, I'll go.  Where You stay, I'll stay.  When You move, I'll move.  I will follow You.  Who You love, I'll love.  How You serve, I'll serve.  If this life I lose, I will follow You, yeah.  I will follow You, yeah.”

9. All To Jesus I Surrender, Judson W. Van DeVenter

Favorite Lyric – “All to Jesus I surrender, all to Him I freely give.  I will ever love and trust Him, In His presence daily live.  I surrender all, I surrender all.  All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all.”

8. WWII, Phineas

Favorite Lyric – “Dear father, I must first confess that from the stone inside my chest I have nothing to offer You.  I'm shaken by Your righteousness at a loss of words to do justice, so grant me grace in silence.  I will learn to love You and abandon the rest.”

7. The Heart Of Worship, Matt Redman

Favorite Lyric – “When the music fades, and all is stripped away, and I simply come, longing just to bring something that's of worth that will bless your heart.  I'll bring You more than a song, for a song in itself is not what You have required.  You search much deeper within Through the ways things appear.  You're looking into my heart.”

6. You Never Let Go, Matt Redman

Favorite Lyric – “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, Your perfect love is casting out fear.  And even when I'm caught in the middle of the storms of this life, I won't turn back, I know you are near.”

5. Until The Whole World Hears, Casting Crowns

Favorite Lyric – “Lord, I want to feel Your heart.  And see the world through Your eyes.  I want to be Your hands and feet.  I want to live a life that leads.  Ready yourselves, ready yourselves.  Let us shine the light of Jesus in the darkest night.  Whoa, ready yourselves, ready yourselves.  May the powers of darkness tremble as our praises rise!”

4. The Motions, Matthew West

Favorite Lyric – “No regrets!  Not this time!  I’m gonna let my heart defeat my mind.  Let Your love make me whole.  I think I’m finally feeling something.  ‘Cause just ok is not enough.  Help me fight through the nothingness of this life.”

3. In Christ, Living Sacrifice

Favorite Lyric – “I am in Christ, the Son of God. I am in Christ, no longer condemned.  I am in Christ, the Son of God. I am in Christ, resurrected.”

2. While I’m Waiting, John Waller

Favorite Lyric – “And I will move ahead bold and confident, taking every step in obedience.  While I'm waiting, I will serve You.  While I'm waiting, I will worship.  While I'm waiting, I will not faint.  I'll be running the race even while I wait.”

1. Christ Is Enough, Hillsong United

Favorite Lyric – “Christ is enough for me!  Christ is enough for me!  Everything I need is in You, everything I need!  I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back!  No turning back!”

A Prayer to Choose Jesus - Your Daily Prayer - July 24

Open your home to Jesus. Invite him in and prepare to give him your best, but don’t leave him sitting alone. Take the time to sit at His feet and listen as He fills you with the necessary Words of Truth you need to live this life. Then make that choice over and over again. May we all choose what is right, better, and the good portion each and every day.
