Dear Lord, please help me during the concert. I don’t want to mess up and make an idiot out of myself. I want to be remembered as an amazing concert performer. Let me shine my light on the world in a way that will change lives forever.   

Dear God, please let at least a thousand kids show up tonight to the concert. And, I know this is a big request, but could you also try to help the ticket sales? And even if the kids don’t come tonight and it’s just adults, please would you help the pastor? I know that he needs a large crowd in order to fulfill his commission from heaven. Please help with leading them and showing them Your greatness through Your presence alone. God, thanks for hearing the request. You are truly my good and faithful friend. Amen!

O dear lord, hear the prayer of your children this evening.   We write to you seeking the assistance of the holy spirit in channeling the talents of our musicians so that we might lift your people up and bless them with an unforgettable night of worship. Let all who attend be touched with a sense of your presence during this concert as we perform your praises. O lord, please enrich our instruments with the sounds your angels use to sing in heaven. Please allow our voices to blend into one and flow out like water from a garden fountain.

Lord, we ask that you bless the concert of [name of artist] tonight. We pray that you will be with him as he performs, and that all who hear him will be inspired and encouraged by the beauty of your creation.

Dear God,

I humbly ask that you help me to play my best tonight. I know it’s a big responsibility, so if you could just give me some extra strength and confidence, I’d be eternally grateful.

Help me to keep my mind focused on the music and not on how nervous I am or how much pressure there is on my shoulders. Help me to play with grace and joy, knowing that what I’m doing is important and meaningful for the people who are listening to it. And help me to remember that this is part of your mission—to bring beauty into the world through music.

Please also pray for all of us who are performing tonight—we need your strength as well!

Thank you God for this wonderful opportunity to play the piano in front of the whole school.

Dear God,

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to play the piano in front of the whole school. Thank you for giving me a talent that allows me to play the piano beautifully. Thank you for keeping me healthy and strong so that I can practice my music every day. Thank you also for providing such an impressive instrument as well! And thank you especially for giving me this chance to share my music with everyone.

I pray that I will be able to relax and focus on the music and not on my nervousness.

I know that God has given me a gift, but it is hard for me to believe in myself sometimes. I pray that God will give me confidence.

Please help me not to forget any part of my piece and also to play in tune.

No one likes a sore loser and everyone wants to be remembered as a gracious winner. Remember to congratulate your fellow pianists when they have an outstanding achievement or score high marks on the exam. It is important to remember those who helped you get there too, so give thanks to your teacher and God for the opportunity he has given you.

This was a prayer asking God for success in playing the piano in a big concert.

This was a prayer asking God for success in playing the piano in a big concert.

It was the first time that I had ever played for such a large audience and I was very nervous about it. I had practiced hard and learned many new songs, hoping to do well at the concert. The night of my performance arrived and all my friends came to support me as I went onstage with two other pianists who were also performing. As we began playing together, I could feel myself getting more confident as our music filled up the room!

Later on, when everyone was clapping for us after our performance had finished, one of my friends came up to tell me how well she thought we had done – this made me feel very happy inside!

prayer for musicians and artists

Ephesians 5:19-21
O Lord, I pray that the music I make or the songs that I sing are always from my heart to You. I pray that as we sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, we genuinely dedicate each melody to You. I pray that I always give You thanks for all things, in Jesus’ Name. I thank You for this talent You have given me, I choose to give it back to You by using it to glorify Your Name, Amen.

Psalm 105:2
Righteous God, I give You all the glory, the honor and the praise for who You are. I declare that I will sing to You, I will sing praises to You and tell of all of Your wonderful works in my life. I will sing so that all can hear it and see how great You are. Thank You because my voice is a blessing from You. I sing not for myself, but I sing to demonstrate Your goodness in my life, Amen.

Psalm 49:4
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the gift of music. I listen carefully to many proverbs and solve riddles with inspiration from my instrument. I thank You because playing music has allowed me to gain clarity in life and has helped me to enforce truths that You have opened my eyes to. Music is just one way that I enjoy worshiping You. I thank You for this gift that You have given me, I do not take it lightly, Amen.

Psalm 101:1
Oh Lord, I will sing of Your love and justice for the rest of my days. To You, Lord, I will sing praise. I pray that the melodies that I sing and/or write are inspired by my love for You. I pray that this love is evident each time that I sing. I pray that genuine worship to You is my main focus when I sing rather than the musicality; this I pray, Amen.

Psalms 150:1-5
Awesome God, I praise You. I praise You in Your sanctuary and I praise You in Your mighty heavens. I praise You Lord for Your acts of power and I praise You for Your everlasting greatness. I praise You with the sounding of the trumpet and with the harp and flute. I declare that everything that has breath praises You! Hallelujah! I pray that my instrument (whether this be my voice or my guitar, piano, drum etc) worships You, Amen.

Psalms 98:1-7
Dear Lord, I sing to You a new song because You have done marvelous things, I am in awe of the works of Your salvation! I shout because the joy You give me is uncontainable! I praise You with the harp and with the sound of singing. I pray that all music is to glorify Your great Name. You are an awesome Father, I choose to worship You in Spirit and truth in all that I do, Amen.

how to pray with music

Below, we offer 5 steps to pray with music, no matter the season.

1. Choose your song. 

On the app, we now have several kinds of music suitable for different kinds of prayer! You can find our new Music section with over 100 songs and 14 albums available in the Meditate tab. From Catholic singer-songwriter Kat Hammock’s Hymns (exclusive to Hallow Music) to acoustic worship with Brother Isaiah to Harpa Dei’s traditional chant, there is something for everyone. In prayer with music, we recommend starting with something you know or something that sounds interesting to you. 

2. Take a few deep breaths.

If ever you are overwhelmed, you can let the words or notes of the music be your voice. Take a few deep breaths and allow yourself for the song’s length to whatever it is God wants to show you. Depending on what you need at that moment, some words might stick out to you. Other times, the tune might carry you to a more peaceful place. Many of us are working from home these days, and music serves as a peaceful start, background, or break throughout the day. It helps you focus but isn’t distracting. 

3. Listen to the melody and/or read the text. 

If you are struggling to find a way to speak with God, start with a song you know. It might be “Be Thou My Vision” or “The First Noel” this Christmas. Find somewhere comfortable to sit or peaceful to walk and tune into the music. Notice the rhythm and note the lyrics of the song. As you begin to submerge yourself in the music, see if any of the words speak to you in a particular way. Think of this as imitating the practice of Lectio Divina with your chosen song. 

4. Let the music lead you into a conversation with God.

Music can help bring focus and calm to your day, even during other forms of prayer. For example, we recommend listening to the instrumental music on the app, such as Sean Beeson’s Give Me Jesus album (a Hallow Original), during adoration. As you rest with the Blessed Sacrament, virtually or in person, be drawn deeper into prayer through familiar melodies that help you to focus on the presence of Our Lord.

We encourage you to turn to prayerful lyrics, such as those in the album Canticum Novum (2019) by CMI Chant, when you need to sing, cry, smile, or find peace. 

5. Sing along (or don’t).

Lastly, remember praying with music doesn’t have to be so serious. You might find some of our music better suited for listening before bed or during a quiet moment in your day; the album In Prayer (2017) by ambient artist Salt of the Sound is great for this. With other songs, don’t be afraid to sing or hum along! Singing along is also a great way to pray with kids. 


At the end of the day, we can’t control what happens to us. We can’t even control what happens around us. But what we can do is pray for those who are in need, and offer our support when needed. It takes just a few seconds to text or call someone, but it makes a world of difference to that person. So take time out of your day today and reach out to someone who might need it.
