With a passion to encourage congregational worship, create resources for churches, and draw listeners closer to God, Highlands Worship will release Prayers To The King on August 13. The 10 songs on the LP were meticulously crafted to create a contemplative, peaceful, and worshipful environment to encourage and inspire listeners to connect with God in prayer.
 
Produced and co-written by Highlands Worship's Chris Griffin and mixed by Chris Greeley, Prayers To The King also features nine songs co-written by the legendary Hosanna! Music songwriter Lynn DeShazo.
 
"Our goal with writing songs specifically for the prayer environment is to help create the moment where we can connect with God," shares Griffin. "The Bible says, 'Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise (Psalm 100:4).' Worship can walk us into God's presence."
 
Uniquely written and recorded for the Pray First app created by Church of the Highlands, one of the largest churches in America, the new music is being shared with the world on the app at no cost. Churches and individuals are invited to download the app for free on their devices via the Apple App or Google Play stores. The open-source app is built so that if churches wish, they may reconfigure the app specifically for their congregations.
 
"Our prayer is that the playlist of songs in the app is way more than just music-- we hope it helps people encounter God in a real way," continues Griffin.
 
Along with the app, Highlands Worship has beautifully captured every song on Prayers To The King on video. These videos will release in the coming weeks, with select video premieres to be announced soon.
 
Prayers To The King and the Pray First app are an extension of Church of the Highlands' annual 21 Days of Prayer that begins on August 8 and invites congregants to pray over their church, communities, and nation.

"Pray First is a saying that the people of Church of the Highlands use often to remind us that in every situation we should take our burdens to God," shares Worship Pastor John Larson, who leads Highlands Worship's team of 1,000+ members and 70+ full or part-time musicians. "Prayer is our first priority, not our last resort. The Bible says that God sees when each sparrow falls (Matthew 10:29). So how much more does God love and care for us? Our hope is to pray without ceasing; that every moment of our lives is covered by a faith-filled habit of prayer."
