In the Album Hear My Prayer Part 1 many different characters of the Bible are presented to the listener with the prayers that they put forward to our Lord. These characters include Hezekiah, Isaiah, Manesseh, St Mary, Habakkuk, Nehemiah, the thief on the right hand side of our crucified Lord even the Lord’s prayer at Gethsemane.
As we listen to their prayers accompanied by contemporary Christian music we can be drawn into the song with the character as each has a particular plea or weakness that each one of us can relate to and therefore as we listen to these beautiful Christian songs we are able to lift up our prayers through theirs.
This album brings some of the best recorded prayers in the bible to life and helps the listeners to memorise these prayers by heart which makes this album along with part 2 which has more prayers from other bible characters a great gift idea for your Sunday school class or youth group.
By using these albums as gifts for Sunday school or youth visitation not only will you engage your young people with the Bible in a way that relates to them but you will also help them memorise passages of the Bible through listening to these songs.
This is what St John Chrysostom had to say about singing the Bible:
“When God saw that many men were lazy, and gave themselves only with difficulty to spiritual reading, He wished to make it easy for them, and added the melody to the words, that all being rejoiced by the charm of the music, should sing hymns to Him with gladness”
– St. John Chrysostom
