Podcast: Praising God with Music (Exod 15.21)

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.

For a believer, there is a time to do that, rather than “waiting on the Lord.” But our “passion” should not be the driving force of our actions. Prayer should play a significant part of anything we do, and Nehemiah’s prayer here shows us the right way.

Is It ever Appropriate to Ask God to Curse Someone? (Neh 4.4-5)

In this day of radical tolerance (except against those who refuse to tolerate indiscriminate toleration), most of us are likely to judge anyone who offers a curse-prayer. Yet they are part of the Biblical tradition of prayer. What can we learn from this one, and in our age, is a curse-prayer ever appropriate?
