This prayer is offered by Miriam and the women of Israel, after God delivered them from the Egyptians through the Red Sea. Prayers are often set to music—the entire book of Psalms is a hymnbook of lyrics for which we no longer have the music. Miriam’s prayer-hymn, and the one by Moses and the men before it, offer us some ideas as to how we can use music in our prayer practice, too.
The first book in the Praying Through the Bible series is now available in paperback and for Kindle and iBooks. Perfect for use as a daily or weekly devotional; for personal or group study.
