(A VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SONG, by Ken Bible; p.66)

Praying for Fellow Workers

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

(Ephesians 5:21, NIV)

I urge... that requests, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be made for everyone--

for ... all those in authority.

(1 Timothy 2:1-2, NIV)

We all have to work with other people, whether on our jobs, at home, or in the church. Some are

our co-workers. Some are our supervisors. In both cases, our work is interconnected with theirs.

If the other person doesn't do a good job, our work is damaged.

This is particularly true in music. Singers, instrumentalists, writers, directors--none of us is an

island. The quality and effectiveness of our work is dependent on other people. That can be

very stressful!

In dealing with such situations in my own life, the Lord has brought me back to what the Bible

says about submitting to one another and praying for one another. I'm discovering that is great,

practical advice.

Instead of fretting about whether another person will do a good job or whether a supervisor will

make the right decision, I'm learning to pray for them. I pray that God will guide them and work

through them to accomplish His will.
