10 Scriptures From Jeremiah To Use When Leading Worship

Ever been in a worship leading situation where you needed a Scripture but you just couldn’t think of the right one? That’s why I think memorizing Scripture is so important for worship leaders. Matter of fact, it may be more important than learning songs.When a worship leader understands the scope Scripture and commits much of it to memory, he is better able to lead people in “spirit and truth” worship. Otherwise, he(she) merely relies on a songlist to do the job for him.
Sometimes worship leaders can speak too much and distract from worship. But other times the right Scripture spoken at the right time can unlock something powerful.

That’s what this post is all about. I want to outline for you some great Scriptures  from the book of Jeremiah that are great when leading worship. Why Jeremiah? 1) Because there are some great ones, and 2) I find Jeremiah’s life quite inspiring. Despite a difficult call from God (prophet to a rebellions people) and tremendous hardship (prison & persecution), he kept his longing and desperation for God. As worship leaders, that’s what we strive to do, isn’t it?

I hope this post can be a reference for you when you’re looking for a Scripture to use or maybe it could be a memorization list for 2011.

    Great post! My favorite verses from Jeremiah are found in ch 1:

    But the LORD said to me:

    “ Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
    For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
    And whatever I command you, you shall speak.
    8 Do not be afraid of their faces,
    For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD.
