Prayer of Preparation for a Cantor or Choir Member




Prayer of A Cantor or Choir Member

Lord of Life, I pause in prayer before the beginning of this service.

Fill my voice with love for You

May the notes that will sound find their harmony as they pass through my heart.

May the song of my mouth be a hymn a praise to You.

May I seek by my voice to give glory to You rather than to bring attention to myself.

May I seek humble service to the parish community by the sharing of this gift with which You, my Lord, have blessed me.

Use me, Lord of Rhythm and Harmony, as You would play upon a hollow reed so that those whom I am called to serve may be attunned to Your Spirit and moved to prayer.

May my gift of service truly be my prayer to you this day.
Amen."
