What's the background music for your prayers?

Rapping with God

I HAD JUST FINISHED watching the 1999 MTV Music Video Awards show, which had been heavily flavored with rap music. After the program ended, I went upstairs to bed. I always pray the Lord's Prayer before drifting off to sleep. This particular evening, I had said several lines before I realized that I was praying with a rap beat! It went something like this: "Our Father (boom), which art in heaven (boom)." I laughed at myself and then started the prayer again—without the booms.

The next day, I smiled as I recalled the incident, and then thought a little more about it. I asked myself, "What kind of music do I want to hear while I pray?" The answer came, "The music of angels."
