Music Moves Me: The Lord’s Prayer

Good day my friends and family. I had a moving day full of inspiration, and you guessed it-music. A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by fellow church members Reggie and Faye Tryon if I would be willing to learn and sing a song for special music. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to minister with two gifted people, so I agreed. The song was a rendition of the Lord’s Prayer. It’s remarkable how God’s people can take anything from scripture and make it into a song. I had the distinct honor of singing it today during the church service along with Reggie and my music partner David, who accompanied me also with their guitars and voices. Below is a video of David and I singing it a second time by ourselves. Hopefully it plays.

In the book of Matthew, Jesus gives instruction on how to pray. He gives the perfect example of a prayer in Matthew 6:9-13, which reads,

“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this Day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen”

Should the Lord’s prayer be recited all the time? I don’t believe so, for it might become routine and lose its meaning after awhile. When you pray, it shouldn’t be empty; repetitive; or for the sake of glorying yourself. It should be a time for you to praise, give thanks, make unselfish requests, and bond with your God who is willing to listen to you when others don’t care to.

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
