Speaking of prayer songs

September 25, 2013 — 1 Comment

“For my part, I will sing of Your strength.
I will celebrate Your love in the morning
For You have become my stronghold
A refuge in my day of trouble
To You, o my strength will I sing
For You, O God, are my stronghold and my merciful God.”

Psalm 59:19-20

♦◊♦

“He who sings, prays twice.”
–attributed to Augustine

♦◊♦

Sing that sweet, sweet song of salvation
And let your laughter fill the air
Sing that sweet, sweet song of salvation
And tell the people everywhere
Sing that sweet, sweet song of salvation
Tell every man in every nation
To sing that sweet, sweet song of salvation
And let the people know that Jesus cares
–Larry Norman

    What an interesting comment—that in singing we are doubly praying! What a gift it is! I often sense that when I sing it moves me back into my child position—one of uncomplicated faith and trust. That’s where Jesus told me to stay!

I'd love to hear what you are thinking...
