Did You Think To Pray? Amazing Piano Rendition – Video

Music for Missionaries - Did you think to pray?

What better way to spend the Sabbath, than listening to sacred music?

Scroll down to listen to an amazing rendition to the beloved hymn “Did You Think to Pray?” by Jerald Simon.

Text from Jerald Simon’s YouTube Channel:

Hymns of the Heart by Jerald Simon, features 9 arrangements of well known and beloved hymns. Each hymn arrangement was “spontaneous” and recorded in an improvisational way – without any rehearsing or prior planning for the arrangement. Jerald wanted to “feel” the arrangements out and let them come naturally – spur of the moment and freely. Generally, Jerald writes out the music beforehand and plays note for note what he has composed/arranged prior to recording, but in this case, he wanted to let the music speak for itself without any forced or rehearsed guidance or assistance. What came out during the recording is what you hear. It is what Jerald felt as he recorded the music.

The nine hymn arrangements are:

1: A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief – 6:24
2: Abide With Me, Tis Eventide – 5:57
3: Come Follow Me – 6:04
4: Did You Think to Pray – 6:50
5: Father in Heaven, We Do Believe – 4:33
6: I Know that My Redeemer Lives – 8:14
7: Joseph Smith’s First Prayer – 8:54
8: Love at Home – 7:08
9: Sweet Hour of Prayer – 5:53

“Jerald Simon’s hymn arrangements are as beautiful as they are musically interesting. I’m sure people are going to love hearing them in church meetings or wherever they are played.” – Jon Schmidt (Piano Guys)

“Jerald is a gifted pianist who has put together a lovely heartfelt collection of Hymns.” – Paul Cardall (Music Producer, Film Composer, Recording Artist)

“Jerald Simon’s arrangement of A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief is peaceful and soothing. It is not rushed, allowing lines to breathe and resolve. He continues to produce music that will bring spiritual comfort to those who are listening.” – Josh Wright (concert pianist and online piano teacher)

  1. We just had a send forth BBQ for Holly on Saturday. She leaves for her mission on the 20th, reporting to Provo MTC and then proceeding to Toronto Canada to serve. I can’t describe the feelings yet. Will my baby be able to stay away from home for that long? I suppose the Lord knows best. I surrender all to him.
