August 26 - Pray for Stuart Townend

Stuart Townend is a huge gift to the church, in our generation and the ones to come. It is no exaggeration to say he has helped us all think about the Lord in deeper, fresher, more biblically-rich ways and in turn to love our Lord more fully and passionately and follow Him with greater conviction.

On a personal level, he has been a friend, co-writer and mentor to both Kristyn and me and shaped our writing more than anyone.

So.... we are pretty excited he's going to be at the conference!

Please pray for: 

  • The times of sung worship Stuart leads in each of the rooms (FYI we'll all sing "How Deep the Father's Love" with Stuart after David Platt speaks on world mission!)
  • The seminars he leads - that he will both give us songs and fresh insights into our church worship and also be a huge help and inspiration to a new generation of songwriters.
  • For Stuart, as he continues to write songs for the church.
  • For Stuart, in his own personal circumstances - Stuart's brother Phil is going through the final stages of a terminal illness.  So much of his time and emotions are very much with him at this time. Please pray for Phil and his family, and if you wish to find our more about this go to
