For those of you who consider yourselves to be musicians, do you pray before you play, that God will help you proclaim His message through your music?
It can easy to get distracted as you prepare for a concert or show, and dare I say it, even for worship, but it is important that we make sure that whenever we use our God given musical talents, our focus and our purpose remain firmly on God.
I came across a musician’s prayer which you may find helpful:
The Musician’s Prayer by Anonymous
Oh Lord, please bless this music that it might glorify your name. May the talent that you have bestowed upon me be used only to serve you.
Let this music be a witness to your majesty and love, and remind us that you are always watching, and listening, from your throne above.
May your presence and beauty be found in every note, and may the words that are sung reach the hearts of your people so they will draw closer to you.
May your Spirit guide us through every measure so that we might be the instruments of your peace, and proclaim your glory with glad voices.
