Prayer For Choir Ministory

I pray that we pursue high quality sounding worship and never lose sight of You Yahweh. Let those who are appointed understand their responsibility within this region, Amen.

May the blessing of God,
the giver of every good and perfect gift;
and of Christ, who summons us to service;

be with us all.
God of majesty,
whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven:
Be with your servants who make art and music for your people,
that with joy we on earth may glimpse your beauty;

We pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Dear Lord, let us consult You first before we make any decisions in this choir ministry, just like Your people turned to You before appointing their singers in Your Word. Those who sang and praised You in holy attire were sent first before the army declaring Give thanks to the Lord, for His loving kindness is everlasting. I pray that when we minister we will understand that we are battling not against flesh and blood but against higher things. This is the prayer of our heart, Amen.
