Prayers at Dawn – Piano Interlude
My morning prayers began well before dawn on this significant day. This is the day that I close the book on eleven years of ministry at St. Simons Community Church. Sunday, September 30th, 2018.
Although my alarm was set for 6:30 AM, sleep eluded me and I found myself awake around 4:45 AM. By 5:00 AM I was enjoying my time of devotion and prayer. This piano composition came shortly afterwards. The emotions that were swirling around me were numerous, including excitement but also some pain, grief, and anxiety. Would I be able to lead our team on my final Sunday without breaking down? Would I break down in tears on stage in front of nearly 1,000 people? Would I be so overwhelmed with emotion that I was unable to effectively lead our band or congregation? What would I say to the people that I love so dearly who are so sorry to see my departure? What would I say to those who, for whatever their ultimate reasons, were instrumental in my dismissal?
This interlude is rather short but brought me a sense of peace as I played. I love to play these and linger in the spaces, uttering simple phrases and prayers as I play. Many times I just say “Lord, come”. My desire is that the music will touch thousands and thousands of souls across this planet and bring them peace and comfort.
I’m excited about the dawn of a new day. It’s a new season.
