My Top 10 Hits – Week 321

Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from the previous week. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back nearly 45 years. Here’s this week’s chart – for the week ending Sunday April 09TH 2023 – the 321ST week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:

“THE LORD’S PRAYER”– Matt Maher is still at # 1 on my chart for the 7TH week in a row. I led Praise & Worship yesterday at our church service for Resurrection Sunday. I do Praise & Worship a little bit different when I lead. I play 3 music videos (mostly official lyric videos) at the top of the service. The first one is a “cold open” – which means right at 11 AM (the start time of our service) I start the first video with no introduction. Yesterday it was Phil Wickham’s “This Is Amazing Grace”. The first video is always an uplifting one – to get everyone’s attention and to set the mood for the service. I then greet my church family, and that leads-in to the second video. Yesterday it was Cochren & Co.’s “Thank God For Sunday Morning”. That was so relevant for Resurrection Sunday. I concluded the 3-video set with Chris Tomlin’s “Resurrection Power”. Every so often I get the chance to close with a 4TH video at the end of the service. It’s usually one that I’ve never played before. Yesterday it was Matt Maher’s “The Lord’s Prayer”. It sounded so good playing so loudly all throughout the sound system within our church sanctuary. I think that most of our church family appreciated it as a perfect “going back out into the world to celebrate” song.

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again with the new weekend – and 4 new entries – known as #TravelThursday, #RetroFriday#SundayScripture, and #Top10Monday.
