Singing plays a very important part in our life since we have the responsibility of singing seven times a day and once a night and this takes up around five hours of our time, every day. It inspires our pray and it is important for us what we sing, as it is for God for whom we are singing. The most important thing in prayer and song is for us to abandon our own feelings and focus on the fact that we are singing for God. I would say ....that we are not looking for a means of escape. We are seeking to abandon ourselves rather than avoiding those, often very difficult, things that God asks of us. I would say that yes, it is a form of escape but in the same way that it allows us to escape from ourselves, to come out of ourselves. I think the worst imprisonment is to be imprisoned within oneself. Only when one can come out of oneself can one truly adore God.
