Some Words From Walter Brueggemann about ‘Hymns, Prayers,and Invitations’ by Rick Lee James
“I have listened to Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations and am so grateful for it. Rick Lee James has a great gift for taking up familiar words and giving them freshness with new cadence and voicing. I love the Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing), which gives newness to the phrases of Isaiah. Watching, waiting, and longing is what we do now, and these songs help us do that in confidence. I anticipate that this album will be received as a great gift by many who will find their faith nourished and awakened by it.” -Walter Brueggemann

It’s good to be in Nashville tonight. I got to hang out with my friend Nicholas LaFleur for a bit and drink some delicious tea from ‘The Well’ coffeehouse. Back at my hotel room I ended the day using face time to talk to my beautiful wife Jennifer and my son Alexander. All in all, a tiring but very good day. Tomorrow I hit the recording studio with Craig Adams. I would appreciate your prayers that we make the best record we can for the glory of God. This is a prayer I pray often from the book of common prayer and I’m praying it for this project.
“God, whom saints and angels a delight to worship in heaven: be ever present with your servants who seek through art and music to perfect the praise offered by your people on earth; glimpses of your beauty, and make them worthy at length to behold it unveiled for evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

New Album by Rick Lee James titled: “Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations” to release in 2015. Here’s a teaser trailer.
Crown Him the Lord of peace
Whose power a sceptre sways
From pole to pole
That wars may cease
And all be prayer and praise
His reign shall know no end
And round His pierced feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend
Their fragrance ever sweet
