An Actor's Prayer
Lord, bless our performance. Bless us with projection so that all may hear, Bless us with expression so that all may see, Bless us with passion so that all may feel. Bless our performance, indeed!
Bless us with a knowing audience that our work might be appreciated, Bless us with a giving audience that they might express their appreciation, Bless us with applause that we might know You are pleased.
Increase our fame, That another audience will want to see us, That we will be asked to perform here again, That we will be asked to perform elsewhere.
Lord, lay Your hand upon us, Guide our voice that they may not quaver, Guide our steps that they may not waver, Guide our gestures that they may not be overdone.
Lord, keep us from harm, Let not a single note be sour, Let not a single step be out of place, Let not a single cue be missed.
Lord, bless our performance. Amen.
