Worship can happen in a variety of settings and with a variety of people, but women worshipping with other women impacts spiritual growth by allowing us to be authentic. We are all one in Christ, but God designed women differently from men, so worship may look different for us. Our prayers and praises to God might be different because of the uniqueness of being a woman.

Worship is like stretching before a workout. It opens our hearts to what God has to say to us and allows prayer to not become one sided. Rather than simply asking God for things, our prayers become songs of who God is. Many of these songs have been sung by various artists, but for this piece I wanted to focus on versions mostly sung by women. Whether you're getting ready for your next women's group or simply worshipping alone in your car during your morning commute, here are seven songs to add to your women's worship playlist. 

"You Say" -- Lauren Daigle 

With the voices and opinions of the world coming to us at full force with how women should think, act and speak, "You Say" reminds us that the only voice that matters is God's. No matter how we feel about ourselves or what others say about us, God says we are loved and held by Him. It's also a great reminder for women to lift each other up with Godly encouragement. 

"You say I am loved when I can't feel a thing/You say I am strong when I think I am weak/And you say I am held when I am falling short/And when I don't belong, oh You say I am Yours."

 

"King of My Heart" -- Bethel Music

Even with the best intentions, women often have the tendency to put others first. Sometimes we put our family, friends and even church first, but "King of My Heart" emphasizes keeping God at the center of our lives so that he can rule our hearts.  

"Let the King of my heart/Be the wind inside my sails/The anchor in the waves/Oh oh, He is my song/Let the King of my heart/Be the fire inside my veins/The echo of my days/Oh, He is my song."

 

"Your Great Name" -- Natalie Grant

"Your Great Name" is a powerful reminder of God's ability to change our lives. Regardless of what we're going through, God is able to work wonders in our lives.

"All the weak, find their strength, at the sound of Your great name/Hungry souls, receive grace, at the sound of Your great name/The fatherless, they find their rest, at the sound of Your great name/Sick are healed, and the dead are raised, at the sound of Your great name."

 

"Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" -- Hillsong United 

Incredible things can happen when we release control of our lives and let God take control. "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" reminds us that even when "oceans rise," He will lead us through it and will make our faith stronger. These moments allow us to be a testimony to other women. 

"Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders/Let me walk upon the waters/Wherever You would call me/Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander/And my faith will be made stronger/In the presence of my Saviour."

 

"Not for a Moment (After All)" -- Meredith Andrews

"Not for a Moment (After All)" emphasizes that God will never leave or forsake us. Life can be hard and none of us are immune to the troubles and hardship life can bring. Life is everchanging, but God is the one constant we can always depend on. Even when we feel like we can't see Him working in our lives, He is always there. 

"And every step, every breath You are there/Every tear, every cry, every prayer/In my heart, at my worst, when my world falls down/Not for a moment will You forsake me."

 

"Goodness of God" -- CeCe Winans

"Goodness of God" is a praise to God for His goodness and faithfulness. We praise God for His goodness because of who He is, what He has done, and what He will do. 

"'Cause all my life You have been faithful/And all my life You have been so, so good/With every breath that I am able/Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God."

 

"In Christ Alone" -- Keith and Kristyn Getty

The message of "In Christ Alone" is that Christ alone is all we need. We have all we need because He gave the ultimate sacrifice through His life, death, and resurrection. This song allows us to fully focus that we have everything we could ever need in Christ alone.  

"In Christ alone, my hope is found/He is my light, my strength, my song/This Cornerstone, this solid ground/Firm through the fiercest drought and storm."
