Heartfelt Prayers: Beech Grove Benedictine Community


Vocation Prayer

O Lord,
     you know me.
You know when I sit
     and when I stand.
You have me always present
     in your mind.
For this, Lord, I thank you.
You know the path for my life
     and what is best for me.
Lord, reveal to me the path
     I am to walk.
Bless me and guide me
     and be Lord to me
so that whichever road I take
     I may do all for your glory.
     In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Songs in Church History | Discerning God in Song Episode 03

Host: Steve Macchia, Guest: Dave Currie

Singing the songs of those who have come before us, especially from other cultures and times, enhances our discernment as leaders.” – Dave Currie

God sings over us out of his great affection, and as a warrior for our soul, he protects and cares for us as his beloved. Songs have been a part of the history of the church as singing helps us stay connected to God and with one another as his children. We know there will be lots of singing in heaven; while we are here on earth, we have a foretaste of that eternal worship. Spanning the history of the church, we note the ways every tribe, nation, and language group are rehearsing for the final praiseworthy performance at the marriage supper of the Lamb!
