Why Put Prayer to Song

Printer Friendly Version

Prayer can be in and of itself a weapon. Such a prayer is called an imprecatory prayer. Such a prayer is basically calling down a curse upon the enemies of Christ and is seen throughout the Psalms. The War Psalms of the Prince of Peace by James E. Adams (and available for order at our website) is about such prayers. Following is a quote from that book:

"The spirit of the imprecations of the Psalms is found throughout the Psalter. The psalmist desires the destruction, shame, judgment, fear, silence, defeat, scattering, persecution, confusion and death of his enemies in many of the psalms."

Following is an example of such a prayer:

The wicked are estranged from the womb; These who speak lies go astray from birth. They have venom like the venom of a serpent; Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear, So that it does not hear the voice of charmers, Or a skillful caster of spells. O God, shatter their teeth in their mouth; Break out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD. - Psalms 58:3-6

We often forget these prayers were put to music and sung by the psalmist. Music, too, in and of itself is a weapon. Satan’s children have been using it very effectively to steal our children and destroy our white-Anglo culture and civilization.

Take as an example the following, found on Wikipedia:

Music as a weapon is an alternative metal/heavy metal/nu metal/hard rock tour created by American heavy metal band Disturbed. There have been three tours as of 2008, with a fourth tour beginning in March of 2009. the 2009 tour is being billed as a large-scale festival-style event with many stands including tattoo artists, extreme sports and video games.

The Bible gives us a story in 2 Chronicles 20 where a great battle against an overwhelming and better-armed enemy was won simply by music. Musicians were marched out in front of the army and the enemy was defeated. Put these two weapons (prayer & music) together and you have a mighty weapon for the destruction of strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:4).

Thus we have presented to you the prayer song "A Mighty Weapon". If you want this prayer song on a CD, write to us and request it. The CD has the music and lyrics on track 1, and track 2 has just the backing tracks for you to sing by.

And they rose early in the morning and went out to the wilderness of Tekoa; and when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Listen to me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, put your trust in the LORD your God, and you will be established. Put your trust in His prophets and succeed." And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the LORD and those who praised Him in holy attire, as they went out before the army and said, "Give thanks to the LORD, for His lovingkindness is everlasting." And when they began singing and praising, the LORD set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were routed. For the sons of Ammon and Moab rose up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir destroying them completely, and when they had finished with the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another. When Judah came to the lookout of the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; and behold, they were corpses lying on the ground, and no one had escaped. - 2 Chronicles 20:20-24
