Just a bit of a fun experiment since I've got until Monday to come up with something!
I'm leading a short lunch-time prayer service next week at one of the Anglican Churches in our 'Prayers for Christian Unity week'. The theme of the day will be 'pray always'.
I usually try to include two songs or hymns since singing is such a part of Methodist tradition, but they will be sung without any instrumental accompaniment. Past experience suggests that once I've plucked up my courage to start the song (I'm a servicable, but not fantastic, choral singer) that there are enough good singers to carry the tune.
But I need songs that are easy to sing unaccompanied and which I can be sure everyone from all Christian denominations will know.
I've chosen 'Abba Father' for the first song. Anyone out there have any other suggestions? Well known, easy to sing, possibly a vague reference to prayer.
Answers on a postcard - er, blog reply - please!
The United States and the United Kingdom - two nations divided by different hymn tunes! :-)
