Praise and Prayers set to music

Hello. I’m a musician and Christian. I feel I’ve been called to do something with my gift for the guitar. My plan has been to set parts of the bible to music, I’m especially interested in the psalms and John as they’re so poetic. I had another idea tonight that maybe people would want their prayers and praise set to music. Music has been used from atleast David til today to add emphasis and bring the emotional aspect of the words to the forefront. To bring about that tangible Spirit, that’s brings tears to the eyes. I want to do this and I think I’m called and gifted to. I would be doing this completely free for however long I do this and if it gets popular I’d accept tips. But I would say never feel obligated or bad for me if you don’t tip, that’s not what I want. I want to fulfill my calling and receive my blessings from God.

If theres anything in particular you want from the music: a certain style, certain key, use your own personal melody, any directions at all, just ask. My recording equipment is passable and my singing is decent, but let’s say you don’t want my recording but rather just the music so you can play it yourself. I can get you tabs or sheet music too. Whatever you want. So I think that sums most everything up, feel free to message me. Also, I understand prayers are highly personal, I will do everything to respect that.

There have been a lot of great examples of Psalm renditions, and a personal favorite of mine is an Aussie band called Sons of Korah (their album 'Live Recordings Vol. 1' is really good). But sometimes - like most Christian music these days - they can veer off into sappy territory.

So I would recommend trying to stay away from the sort of stuff we get from 'How He Loves'. Bleh.

But what kind of Christian music do you get around generally? I'm frothing the new ABR album personally, although it wouldn't exactly be considered church band material lol

I like listening to interpretations of psalms, back in the day I liked some reliant k but I wasnt christian then. I like lauren daigle too, do you consider her bleh? I could understand. I need to check out ABR apparently theyre from where I live, I'm from chester county.

Also dont judge but sometimes I reinterpret secular songs as if they're spiritual, tell me God doesnt have a little gangster in him:

Have you an arm like God, and can you thunder with a voice like his? Adorn yourself with majesty and dignity; clothe yourself with glory and splendor. Pour out the overflowings of your anger, and look on everyone who is proud and abase him. Look on everyone who is proud and bring him low and tread down the wicked where they stand. Hide them all in the dust together; bind their faces in the world below. Then will I also acknowledge to you that your own right hand can save you. Job 40:9‭-‬14 ESV

lauren daigle

Haven't heard of her, but my issue is more that modern Christian music tends to have a weird emphasis on eros love, and is just sappy in general.

Some lyrics 'from How He Loves':

So heaven meets Earth like a sloppy wet kiss

And my heart turns violently inside of my chest

....

He loves us

Oh how he loves us

oh how he loves us

oh how he loves

His love is going deep

His love is going deep tonight

His love is going deep tonight

I can't help but laugh at this. I mean seriously! And we wonder why men don't get around Church anymore..
