The yearning of our hearts
My heart and voice I raise,
To spread Messiah’s praise;
Messiah’s praise let all repeat:
The universal Lord,
By whose almighty Word
Creation rose in form complete.-Benjamin Rhodes
I will worship You with gladness and dance before you with gratefulness in my heart. I will indeed bless the Lord at all times and His praise shall be in my mouth always. O You are good and your mercies really endures. You have been so kind to me. Bless the Lord O my soul and all that is within me bless His holy Name. Let all the earth praise You O Lord. Let everything that have breath worship You.
Lord there are times when we want to pray so fervently for others because we realize that they really need our support however we find that we do not seem to have the stamina and the energy to keep the prayer going. Lord in such times may You hear the yearning of our hearts and souls and answer our prayers. Amen (10/24/17)
He is there for us
Thank you for the cross, Lord
Thank you for the price You paid
Bearing all my sin and shame
In love You came
And gave amazing grace
Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the throne
Crown You now with many crowns
You reign victorious- Hillsong
Lord when I needed a Maker to make me you made me. When I needed a Savior to save me you saved me. When I needed Friend to talk to you became my friend. Without You I am nothing. I derive my life and my strength and everything from You O Lord. May my voice be lifted up to praise and worship You all of my days .
Lord there are many times when we are looking for friends or family to help us out of a predicament and we find no one available or willing to help. We become distraught and despondent. Lord help us to remember in such times that You are always there to help us and when we cannot find anyone we should turn to You. Help us also that our inclination will be to look to You first and then human actors you will use to help us. Amen (10/15/17)
I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone
You’re a good good father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am – Chris Tomlin
Lord I want to always praise and worship You at all times. I want to glorify your great Name no matter what happens. This is because You are always good, kind, caring and merciful. I don’t deserve all that You do to help me but you don’t cease to bless me even when I don’t merit it. How do I completely wrap my hands around who you are ? All I can say to you is thank you my God for being there for me all the time. I love You Lord.
Lord there are many times when we get interruptions to our busy lives and we get stressed out so much. These are times when we wish everything will go as planned. We however find that You interrupt our lives with unexpected delays and some seeming setbacks to deliver us from evil, protect us or to get our attention when we would not have heard You. Lord, help us to remain calm and trusting of You when we encounter these interruptions so that you can bless us. Amen (10/10/17)
I worship You, Almighty God,
There is none like You.
I worship You, oh Prince of Peace,
That is what I long to do.
I give you praise, for You are my righteousness.
I worship You, Almighty God;
There is none like You.
[There Is None Like You:]
There is none like You,
No one else can touch
My heart like You do –Sondra Corbett
It is indeed good to serve the Lord for He is good and His mercies shall endure. Lord how can I wait to feel in the right mood before I praise You? All I need to do is to think of your great mercy you have had on me and continue to do so daily. Out of the depths of my soul I will sing my praise to You and worship You for you have done so much for me.
Lord there are times when we your children band together and leave others in the cold so much so that they really feel left out and unwelcome. Sometimes it is done on purpose because of some differences we have with them. At other times we do not mean that but our actions and inactions convey that impression. Lord may we endeavor to always make ourselves available to the Holy Spirit so that we will be able to love everyone especially your children. Amen (10/3/17)
