Last week, right before church started, our band gathered to say the traditional, “God we pray you’re with us, we pray for no distractions, for your presence to fall, for us to remember our parts, and for the computer not to crash like it did last week, etc.”
We do this every week. So do you.
In our setting, if we’re not careful, we hustle to get ready, we rehearse until the last minute, then throw up a Hail Mary prayer of sorts.
This got me thinking about the larger “preparations” we do for worship and how often we are living in bad habits that are hindering our experience.
