Download the 2014-2015 Prayer & Praise Night Worship Binder!


Next Friday (September 5), we’re launching an all new year of Prayer & Praise Nights at the Elgin Corps, and we can hardly wait to see what God is going to do this year! Obviously, one of the things we do at Prayer & Praise Night is worship together, and we would be idiots if we just kept all of our worship resources to ourselves. Where’s the fun in that?

One of the reasons Prayer & Praise Nights even exist is to equip the field – that’s you, and the others that attend your Corps. So, you can download the entire 2014-2015 Prayer & Praise Night Songbook for your use, or you can download the individual songs own their own. The new songs (new to our P&PN Worship Band, anyway) that are included in this Songbook are:

All The Poor And Powerless
Break Every Chain
Bring Us Back
Christ Be All Around Me
Come As You Are
Give Me Faith
Good News
Great Are You Lord
Here’s My Heart
I Belong To You
Lord, I Need You
Love Is War
Love Like Yours
Love Wins
Oh God
Seven Woes
Sinking Deep
Storm Song
We Will Run
What Are They Doing In Heaven Today?
When I Am Afraid
You Alone Are God

All you have to do is head over to the worship section of our website, and follow the instructions to get access to free chord charts, songbooks and PowerPoint slides. Enjoy!

New Singing Company EP Given Out @ OBT P&PN

tsc album

Yes. You read that correctly. I suppose there are really two parts to that tile, though. Number one, the Singing Company did just release their latest EP “I” (Roman numeral 1) recently. It is a six song record that includes songs about storms, faith, doubt, repentance, trust and God’s power. It is currently available on Spotify (see playlist below) and iTunes, and the chord charts (in English and Spanish) and accompaniment tracks are soon to be released. Number two, the EP will be given out (as in “for free”) at the Oakbrook Terrace Prayer & Praise Night (OBT P&PN), courtesy of the Territorial Youth Department (You can thank Major Monty Wandling in person since he’ll be our speaker that night). At the end of P&PN, youth will receive a download sticker as they leave the chapel. The front (the sticker part) is the album cover (pictured above), and the back will have instructions on how youth can download their free copy.

To listen now, listen to the album on Spotify below. Listen, share, repeat:

Song of the Week: Satisfied In You (The Sing Team)

This worship gem comes from Mars Hill‘s worship band, The Sing Team, off their 2012 album “Oh! Great Is Our God!” As you probably now know, they are the band behind the song “Oh! Great Is Our God” which we are all so familiar with already. Brian Eichelberger, deacon at Mars Hill and one of the main songwriters at Mars Hill Church, wrote the song, and describes where it came from:

“On Sundays, we often come to church thinking we have something to offer to God as we’re serving or leading, but really, God wants us to be needy and thirsty for him. “Satisfied in You” is inspired by Psalm 42 and a sermon I heard by John Piper that hits on this theme.

I was at a point in my life where I was taking a break from leading worship and God was revealing many of the idols I was finding my identity in. These idols we’re good things in my life, but I had turned them into gods, which couldn’t satisfy.

The song begins by following closely to Psalm 42 singing, “As the deer pants for water so my soul thirsts for you.” The second verse then dives more into my personal response to the Psalm. A lot of times my tendency is to go into a depression looking into myself which only spirals me further down.

The song is meant to preach to myself and call me to remember the times when I experienced the glory and goodness of God which can help bounce me out of that vicious cycle. It’s meant to get my eyes off of me and be satisfied in God alone.”

Take a listen by watching the video above. If you feel so inclined, read the lyrics (pasted below) as you listen. Also, take some time to reflect on Psalm 42 (also pasted below).

Satisfied In You
I have lost my appetite
And a flood is welling up behind my eyes
So I eat the tears I cry
And if that were not enough
They know just the words to cut and tear and prod
When they ask me “Whereʼs your God?”

Why are you downcast, oh my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
I can remember when you showed your face to me

As a deer pants for water, so my soul thirsts for you
And when I survey Your splendor, You so faithfully renew
Like a bed of rest for my fainting flesh

When Iʼm looking at the ground
Itʼs an inbred feedback loop that drags me down
So itʼs time to lift my brow
And remember better days
When I loved to worship you and learn your ways
Singing sweetest songs of praise

Let my sighs give way to songs that sing about your faithfulness
Let my pain reveal your glory as my only real rest
Let my losses show me all I truly have is you

So when Iʼm drowning out at sea
And all your breakers and your waves crash down on me
Iʼll recall your safety scheme
Youʼre the one who made the waves
And your Son went out to suffer in my place
And to show me that Iʼm safe

Why am I down?
Why so disturbed?
I am satisfied in you

Psalm 42
For the director of music. A maskil of the Sons of Korah.

1 As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
3 My tears have been my food
day and night,
while people say to me all day long,
“Where is your God?”
4 These things I remember
as I pour out my soul:
how I used to go to the house of God
under the protection of the Mighty One
with shouts of joy and praise
among the festive throng.

5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

6 My soul is downcast within me;
therefore I will remember you
from the land of the Jordan,
the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.
7 Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.

8 By day the Lord directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.

9 I say to God my Rock,
“Why have you forgotten me?
Why must I go about mourning,
oppressed by the enemy?”
10 My bones suffer mortal agony
as my foes taunt me,
saying to me all day long,
“Where is your God?”

11 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.
