Over the past week, we’ve been exploring creative prayer ideas, and this video from Dan (aka Sekrit) shows that connecting with God can be found in rhythm as well as words...
Prayer can take many different forms - sounds and rhythms can be used to express the love of God, and rhythm is a universal language that can speak to the heart. Rhythm can be a powerful creative expression for prayer, intercession and prophetic worship.
When I was 8 years old, I was introduced to drumming. Ever since, I’ve been on a journey to discover my own identity in God and how my drumming style can be used for the glory of God. It’s part of who I am, and I’ve had the privilege of using drumming to impact others too; knowing that the Holy Spirit can work through rhythm.
Because of this, I love inspiring and encouraging those who want to discover their artistic gifts to express their worship, and to use those to transform their environments.
Rhythmic prayer, the video below, is a short example of how I play improvised rhythms as a form of prayer.
One of the influences for this film is the concept of the Psalmist – not just performing to large audiences or on stages but using gifts to bring glory to God as an individual. And also using these gifts in unusual spaces to bring about positive change for the area they are praying in.
