World Wide Worship – Volume 1

Hey Ya’ll –

Today’s podcast is a “new thing”. Rather than send out a podcast featuring new music, new artists, etc., I decided to just “minister”.

I feel like we get so busy that we seldom take the time to stop, listen, pray, and worship. That’s what this podcast is all about. I’ve led a 22 minute worship session for you.

It’s kinda like this – if I ministered at your church and then said “OK, does anyone want for me to go home and be there for you in the morning so I can sit down, play, pray, and lead you into a time of worship …”? If you would say “Sure” … this is for you.

Disclaimer: I am not, nor have I ever been a great vocalist. For years, songs and worship stayed “bottled up” inside of me because of my great insecurity about my “lack” of ability to sing. Over the years, God has stripped away that insecurity to the point where I don’t really care anymore – it’s all about Him, and if you can bear with my singing, I hope you’ll find a place in His Presence.

Also, as I’ve listened to the podcast, I realize that I should have gotten into the “ministry” a lot quicker instead of just “talking”.


This is a trial run … I would like to continue sending “new songs”, “new artists”, etc., through the Highest Praise Worship Podcast, but I also have a strong passion right now about leading others into that place of “worship in spirit and truth”. As a result, I’ve created this episode – a way that I can lead you, the listener, into a time of personal worship.

So, don’t just sit and listen to this … yield to it. If “now” isn’t the time to really worship with this podcast, save it for later – get alone, or join with your friends, spouse, or others … turn down the lights (if you like) … close your eyes, and allow me to minister to you, and allow yourself to minister TO GOD and to receive ministry FROM GOD.

If this blesses you, please let me know by leaving a COMMENT below. If the response is positive, I’ll likely create a totally separate podcast on a new page, new feed, etc., and do this often. It was very fulfilling today in creating this time of ministry. I look forward to your response.

“Draw Near” Lyrics:

You have given me the Spirit of the Truth
And now my heart cries out to You, “Abba Father”.
You have given me the Spirit of the Truth
And now my heart cries out to You.

Draw near. I hear Your voice calling me.
Draw near. I hear Your voice calling me.

I will behold You. Rest my head upon Your shoulders.
I will forever sing of Your mercies. (repeat)

For the Kingdom,
Fred F. McKinnon

    I just found your podcast (Vol2) and it was great. Continue to allow the Lord to work through you so that His glory might be revealed.

  2. Thank you so much for this “REAL” sounding worship. It is not for fame
    not for sales, but you to God and I am just listening. PLEASE continue
    this. I hope to meet you one day. (if I have not already)

  3. I am listening to this MP3 file right now and I must say it’s a blessing. I have a website where I help Indy Spanish Christian musicians:

    Keep up the good work!
