You don’t need to walk alone.

Playing instruments as an expression of worship

Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skilfully, and shout for joy.

(Psalm 33:2, 3)

I understand that now everyone knows how to play an instrument, but if we know, we can use it as an expression of worship. We can play our instruments either at church or during our worship at home. As we play, we express our heart through our instrument. Let our music bring praises to God.

I remember once as I played for worship, God released such an anointing on me that I began playing in new chords and making new melodies. I could feel the anointing on me. I felt my hands were flowing with the Spirit of God. It was such a precious moment, and it was my time with the Lord amidst the service. It was a song between my God and I. After the service, a band member said that it was such beautiful music and I told him, it was not me. The spirit of God played it. How amazing! 

When we worship God with all our heart, He comes, and He joins us. He ministers to us.


If you know how to play an instrument, you can use the opportunity to play it as a worship to the Lord. It is one form of worship. If you can’t, don’t be discouraged, it is perfectly fine. Our mouth and our hands are instruments of worship too.

Let’s pray

Dear Lord, thank you for today. Thank you for all the blessings and love You have showered on us. Thank you for keeping us safe. Lord, grant us a heart of worship. As we play our instrument as worship to You, fill us with Your anointing to make new music and melodies. Let our voice be an instrument that sings praises to You. Let our hands clap the beat of Your heart. Make us an instrument of worship. Guide us and teach us. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
