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.

Maybe it is a difference in cultures: people of Middle East (both ancient and modern), tend to be more demonstrative than do Westerners. In this study, we have our first encounter in the Bible with someone who cries as she prays to God.
