40 Days and 40 Nights
Becki Slagle Mayo & Paul Adams
- Choristers Guild
Appropriate for both older children's choirs and youth choirs, this unique, jazz style anthem reinforces valuable lessons taught during the Lenten season and other times of year. The "forty days and forty nights" theme underscores the importance of setting aside time to reflect and pray, just as Jesus did in the wilderness. Also drawing from Old Testament stories about Noah and Moses, the composers emphasize the importance of waiting, trusting, and following God's leadership.
