When we sing together, we use words that the faith community have found deep and profound and healing. Instead of “please help Fred not to be so obnoxious,” we sing, “God, please help me not to be so obnoxious,” or as St. Francis put it, “make me a channel of your peace. Where there is hatred let me sow love.” Do you see how the words of a song are already helping lift our prayers and make them more aligned with God’s hopes and desires for us?
