§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Psalm 42:8 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  A Song as a Poem.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Yahweh will command his loving kindness in the daytime. In the night his song shall be with me: a prayer to the God of my life.”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Sometimes (even yesterday) I do poetry at the senior center; it’s called Poetic Expressions, or on the sign I made, it’s the Poet’s Corner.  It’s just time set aside for a small group to gather and enjoy the meanings and the sounds or poems, old or more recently written.  Usually there are a few ladies and one gentleman.

I thought of it today when reading again this scripture about God’s song being a prayer in the night.  Maybe we usually think of prayers being either written, or read, and not so much “sung.”  But at Poetry Club, we sometimes read the lyrics to songs we know and then examine them a bit for the meaning, especially old favorite tunes.

Many songs begin as a poem.  Someone enjoys a poem and then gets into hearing it as a melody some way, intentionally or rather indirectly.  Most of us don’t know how this happens because we don’t write songs with lyrics, or even any songs.  Sometimes, someone is hired to come up with a song and lyrics, or just the notes, for a special occasion.  And some melodies are not set to go with a poem until years or decades later.

We have found that sometimes our group gets more meaning from a song if we read it as a poem.  Singing some favorite hymns may become rather routine over time . . . not that they shouldn’t; perhaps that is part of being a favorite song:  it’s so easily enjoyed through familiarity.  But if we read it as a poem, the words may become more noticeable in context.


Maybe the next time we go to bed with a song to God from a happy heart . . . or a song from God . . . maybe we should attempt to think of it as a prayer in the words.  But we should admit that, if drifting off comes on strong, we may need to take a look at those words the next day . . . if we remember!

Lord, thank you for giving us songs and prayers in the night.  Help us to consider the words in them and apply them . . . and maybe pass them on to others who need encouragement with LIFE decisions.

Topics:  Pray for understanding of the songs and prayers God gives us and to give to others the insights we gain from them.
Pray by specific state for all LIFE issues.
