Besides love, music has been a defining factor in my life. You know how a favorite tune or set of lyrics get stuck in your mind and stay with you for days? When you pray with music written to draw you closer to God and you allow it to indwell, you are embraced in something heavenly, sometimes even holy. Whether experiencing a selection from a great Catholic Mass, like Fauré’s Paradisum from his Requiem Mass, or a worship song like, Hillsongs’ Oceans (Where Feet Will Fall), take a moment today to recall one of your choice or choose one of mine linked below and spend time with it introspectively. This is prayer if it is entered into with that intent. Sometimes I am left with a fragment of lyrics or an image that reminds me of God’s love, or glory, or peace. I savor that reminder as a gift from God. Let God’s grace wash over you today by praying with music.
