A prayer about music
Master Musician, we come to sing Your praises and to reflect Your creativity. Some say You sung creation into existence; You have certainly given us a song. Music is as much a part of battle as armor and armaments. Trumpets, fifes, drums, and bagpipes have rallied troops on the battlefield; and in spiritual warfare we express our faith in song to do battle with the world, the flesh, and the devil. We sing resurrection melodies in triumph over sin and death, singing the triumphs of Your grace. Renew in us O Lord a melody in our hearts to overcome the trials we face, and to triumph in spite of all that is around us. This we pray, in Your thrice-holy Name, Amen.
