Our Choir Prayer

Sacred Heart Choir Prayer
Written by Sacred Heart Choir
November 15, 1990

Choir Prayer – PDF

Heavenly Father, by Your Spirit,
remind us of Your continuous presence
and teach us to love You wherever You are found.

Be our strength that we may be Your faithful instruments
in all areas of our lives from our music to our silence,
from our action to our stillness.

Unite us and help us to grow,
so as to bring all around us into our union with You
that we may praise You in song,
one voice, one heart,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
