This is what the LORD says—
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the LORD your God,
who teaches you what is best for you,
who directs you in the way you should go.
Please orchestrate this day according to Your Will.
Show me how my instrument needs tuning first. Take all my pitchiness; take where my attitude is sharp, or where my perspective is flat. Make me an instrument in tune with You, the One who is the truest tone.
Let all of us that gather to worship in our churches this morning do the same so that all we hear today is our instruments playing in harmony to Your music. Let us only play the notes You have written for us. Direct us. Show us when to turn the page. Keep us playing in accordance with Your timing. Let the ending bring a standing ovation to Your Glory alone.
