This song is the first part of a praise and worship segment captured from a Sunday morning worship service at Pursuit on December 8th, 2013. Out of the free worship the female vocalist began to sing a new song expressing her confidence in God by standing in the finished work of Jesus Christ. “Through my Jesus I can stand, I can stand in confidence.” She was joined by Ray who began to sing spontaneously in the spirit. This section lasts for several minutes before a new song, “I love to sing your praises Lord” was developed. This was followed by another extended session of singing in tongues, followed by an exhortation on the subject of giving ourselves wholeheartedly in worship. Instruction was also given on the nature of worship and why worship is important for the believer. This whole section from the worship service is just under 18 minutes long, and was considered too long for a podcast, so was divided into 3 sections. The sections are as follows:
