31 Days of Promise, Day 7

Prayer, from the musical Come From Away

Why This Song? If you’ve been following my blog, you probably know that I have a huge interest in and love for Come From Away, the Tony award winning musical based on the true tale of how the residents of Gander, Newfoundland cared for the passengers from 38 planes stranded there when the American airspace was closed on 9/11. The story of compassion and generosity is one we all need to hear. And while I frickin’ adore all the songs, this one – Prayer, which weaves together songs and prayers from a variety of faiths – is the one that always brings a lump to my throat.

(The music starts at about the 2:45 mark.)
