Can you play songs of praise to those who mock you?

Heavenly Father, good morning. Thank you for eyes that see. Thank you for the beauty in a rain drop. Thank you for the beauty in a puddle. Thank you for the beauty of one raindrop as it drops into that one small puddle. And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for Lindsey your daughter:

We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth,saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land? (Psalm 137:2-4)

Lord, I’m here again. I came to sit with you, and to lift up your daughter to you. Are there times and places where she is not to play her violin, even in praise of you? Can she step aside rather than play to those who mock her God? Grant her the wisdom and discernment to know when to play and when not. And let her feel your presence with her at the times when she is playing to you Lord. And the glory is all yours. Glory!  I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

NET:
On the poplars in her midst
we hang our harps,
for there our captors ask us to compose songs;
those who mock us demand that we be happy, saying:
“Sing for us a song about Zion!”
How can we sing a song to the Lord
in a foreign land?

HCSB:
There we hung up our lyres

on the poplar trees,
for our captors there asked us for songs,
and our tormentors, for rejoicing:
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion.”
How can we sing the Lord’s song

on foreign soil?

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
