Ready and Waiting

Psalm 42:8

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


It gives me great pleasure to announce the arrival of our brand new St Mary’s Worship EP ‘Day and Night’ which we are launching on 2nd June to coincide with Thy Kingdom Come, our week of 24/7 prayer. The EP is made up of 6 original songs entirely written, recorded and produced by members of the worship team. There is also a 7th spontaneous 'song' constructed from various recordings pooled from the last 2 years. In total there are 55 contributors, which is absolutely amazing!

The EP’s theme is Psalm 42:8 ‘By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me – a prayer to the God of my life.’

The EP splits in half. The first 3 songs reflect ‘Day’. They are songs of celebration and praise. The latter 3 songs reflect ‘Night’. They are songs of worship in the midst of our trials, hopes and longings. Over the course of this week we are going to share a different song each day, accompanied by a short reflection from one of the writers or vocalists.

The first song is entitled ‘Ready and Waiting’. It is a gathering song that reflects on the marvel that the Holy Spirit is just as much looking forward to meeting with us as we are meeting with Him. The song is sung by Tim Mvula and Jessie Main, produced by Alex Iddin, mixed by Richard Titchener and written by Shane Beales.

Thank you to all of the many team members who have contributed to the recordings in a multitude of ways. My prayer is this will be a huge blessing to the church and with fuel our fire for worship Day and Night.
