It's Sunday: Put it on the Altar

 An altar call is a practice in churches were those who wish to make a new/renew a spiritual commitment to God are invited to come forward. It is named because people gather at the altar located at the front of the church.

In the Old Testament, an altar was where sacrifices were made. So, the name "altar call" refers to a believer "offering" themselves on an altar to God. Source Wikipedia

In my church we believe if you have a problem, burden or concern that is too much for you to bear.... you bring it to God by putting it on the altar, praying... then everything would be alright! Amen!

Romans 12:1:
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

Never heard of this particular artist or song, but I will be sure to check out her music. Altar call is one of the most on-the-spot moments ever in church. Lol.

It's all good though.

This artist was a runner up on Sunday Best.

Man..True Dat! Most churches get it wrong tho. Alter call is an invitation to come to God or just pray. I like the just pray alter calls. lol
