Let us Pray

Let us pray
For eyes to weep
For souls no longer to stay asleep
For hearts to break before You Lord
For revival to spread from shore to shore

Let us pray
That violence cease
That homes find peace

That salvation spreads like fire
That righteousness be our one desire

Let us pray
That Jesus be enthroned in our nation
That we no longer live for our ends
That the humble find redemption

That the proud will bow low
And leaders will in godliness grow

May perversion be extracted
Justice and Mercy take action

Let us pray
That multitudes know You
Multitudes know You
The Way, the Life, the Truth

In the Middle

Here in the middle of the mundane
Your Presence can be discovered
In the center of our daily grind
We can honor You

When we work as unto You, Lord
Joy rises
We can find purpose
In a day well spent

We will work quietly with our hands
For You reward honest diligence
With Your abundant blessing

I am a co-laborer with You
In business and ministry
For You ordained both

Thank You Lord
For including me in Your divine plan

On Overcoming

“I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

God never promised us a trouble-free life. Our walk with the Lord has many twists and turns. Sometimes we face dangerous weather. Sometimes the enemy tries to envelope us in adversity. But when we draw close to the Lord, He hides us in the eye of the storm.

The Lord speaks His word to us in the secret place, and His word brings us peace. His word also generates faith inside our hearts, and as we act on that faith, we see God's overcoming power arrive on the scene. Jesus told us to speak to our mountains of difficulty. We can simply command them to move in the name of Jesus. Sometimes they will obey us in an instant; at other times we must exercise patience to see our Lord change the situation in His time. God is sovereign and His perfect will shall prevail as we pray.

We must remember that Jesus has overcome the world. As born again believers, we have been placed in Christ and He lives in us. We have the Overcomer dwelling within us. No matter what we face in this life God, our Father, will give us the grace to overcome. We will either see our mountain move or we will be given the grace and ability to ride the storm with our heads held high.

If you are treading through difficult waters, be encouraged. Put your trust in the Lord; He will see you through. When you turn to Him, He will supply you with all you need to overcome.

Your Glory

You are my glory
The lifter of my head

Your glory outshines
The break of day
Streaming through the mountains

You revealed Your glory to Moses
Later you chose to live within
Vessels of clay

May the weight of Your glory
Rest upon us
May the light of Your glory
Flood us

That we may shine in a world
Where darkness
Attempts to reign

Unconditional Love

Love so amazing
Mercy unearned
Unobtainable through human effort

Lord, help us comprehend Your
Unconditional Love

Father in heaven
You love us
Not for what we do
Not for the sweat of our brow
Not for what we've attained

Instead, You love us
Because You desire to know us
You long to lavish Your goodness upon us
Even though we are undeserving

Your love motivates us
To love others
To do Your will
To return to You the love You give

Even when we fail You
Your mercy remains
Thank you Father God
For Your Unconditional Love

Hear the Call

In my heart, I hear the call
You have chosen me
In my heart, I hear the call
To set the captives free

You have sent me
I will go
And spread this good news
You have sent me
I will go
And proclaim Your precious truth

Souls headed for destruction
Who will rescue them?
Blindly running towards a frightful end
Who will rescue them?

In my heart, I hear the call
I must obey
In your heart, do you hear the call?
Won't you obey?
Won't you obey?

Each of us gifted in our own way
To reach the ones who need the light
Let's present to them a burning flame
Let us burn bright
Let us burn bright

In my heart, I hear the call
I will follow You
I will follow through
How about you?
How about you?
