Lessons on Prayer

Prayer Quotes:

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Soren Kierkegaard

JB Myers

It can be argued that one’s relationship with God is no better than one’s prayer life. It is the measure of your walk with God.

It is a privilege to speak to God in prayer. The God of the Bible is a personal God and is approachable in prayer. Not only has God provided for our redemption, but he has also told us that if we will talk to him he will draw near to us.

Hymn Books and Music Theory

by Jason

Ephesians 5:19-20

19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Eph 5:19). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.

What can help us address one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and make melody to the Lord with our hearts? If you look at the notes in our hymn book, you may notice the notes have different shapes. These shape notes help us to get a sense of the pitch each note should have. For example, in a hymn written in the C Major scale, the first and last note will be the “C” note. Each note in a musical scale has a special name, referred to as a scale degree. Each scale degree will have a different shape. The first (and last) note of any scale is referred to as the tonic note. The tonic note in the C Major scale is “C” and is in the shape of an equilateral triangle. Here are two examples of shape note singing from Encyclopedia Britannica. If you compare the note “fa” in the treble and bass clef in our hymn books, you will see the right triangle shape is flipped over in the bass clef. The full article on shape notes can be found here.

The hymns are arranged in four parts. The highest note, found in the treble clef is the soprano part. The second highest note in the treble clef is the alto. In the bass clef, the second note from the lowest is the tenor. The lowest note in the bass clef is the bass.

David Nivans writes four books on music fundamentals, basic harmony and advanced harmony which are available on his website and Amazon.
