Staff Reviews: 10 Worship Albums to Encourage You on Your Walk

Here at Marine Reach, we have a culture of acknowledging Jesus in our everyday life and learning and talking about His goodness and faithfulness to us as individuals and as a ministry. One of the ways we do this is through praise and worship, it turns our focus from ourselves onto Jesus, the one worthy of our attention and adoration. Worship is one of the ways we can honour, bless and give thanks to the Lord for who He is, what He’s done and will do for us! In difficult seasons, like 2020… and even this year, worship songs with edifying lyrics and truth can change our perspective and remind us of God’s character! We can use worship to soak in His presence and bring us deeper into the revelation of His love.

We have a variety of cultures and languages and our taste in music and even worship artists can be diverse. A few of the albums include well-known artists/bands and others have different artists with a very contemporary feel to them. These are 10 worship albums that some of our staff recommend to encourage you, whatever season you may be in. We pray that as you worship they bring you hope and truth, so give them a listen!

Album #1: Old Church Basement

Artist: Elevation Worship & Maverick City

Favourite song: Jireh

Review: For me, it speaks about being content about what God has spoken about us as His people and what he has given to us – He has given us All things. All that we need is in Him and I really think it’s a timely song for this current season the world is in.”  Abigail, 20 USA

Album #4: Preachers

Artist: Harvest

Favourite song: Song of the Lamb

Review: “I like the album because it’s different, it’s not your classic worship music… The lyrics focus on how Jesus alone is worthy. It makes me think about how I see Jesus and question if I have him in the right place in my life. In all, it describes the desire of my heart: that my life would make a difference for the Kingdom.” Victoria, 21 Canada

Album #5: Peace

Artist: Bethel

Favourite song: Peace

Review: “I love this album because I just stumbled on it accidentally when I was going through such a hard time in my life and the album is so restful… it really does bring peace when you listen to it. I LOVE the song ‘peace’ because it acknowledges the struggle and the pain but brings it back to the peace of God.” Jessica, 21 England

Album #6: Uma Coisa – Ao Vivo

Artist: Morada

Favourite song: Só Tu És Santo (Ao Vivo)

Review: “Morada is one of my favourite artists and this album is so good. I love the lyrics and how meaningful they are. At The Send Brazil, they even had some of the lyrics translated to English – you should go have a listen, they’re so powerful. ”  Juliana, 29 Brazil

Favourite song: 10,000 Reasons / What a Beautiful Name
