Let it rain on us O Lord
Baba, We’re in your presence let it rain Oh, Your rain, let it fall on me We’re in your presence let it rain Oh, Your rain, let it fall on me
Open the floodgates in abundance And cause Your rain, to fall on me Baba Open the floodgates in abundance And cause Your rain, to fall on me – Sonnie Badu
Let everything that have breath praise you O Lord because we exist only because You made us. Day in day out we are filled with nothing but gratitude because we are alive. We have health because you take great care of us. We do not hunger because you feed us every day so we continue to chorus our thanks to you our Creator and Provider.
Lord as I think of the song ‘open the floodgates in abundance and cause your rain to fall on us I contemplate my own need and that of others as well. Please we need your rain to refresh the dryness in our lives and then the torrent to bring abundance spiritual and material on us .In your name we pray. Amen (1/14/18)
He is the Word
He is jealous for me,
Love’s like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And, oh, how He loves us, oh,
Oh, how He loves us,
How He loves us all. – John Mark McMillan
Jehovah you are my God I have been left speechless by all that you have been doing on my behalf. You have answered my prayers for favor beyond my wildest dreams. You really have my back and you have proven that you are always working behind the scenes for my good. You are the Mighty God and I don’t think I can praise and adore your name enough. Thank you, thank you so much my Lord.
Lord it is refreshing to know that You are the Word and you will continue to be the word. As the Word you uttered the words of creation and we came into being. No one can ever contradict your word. Your word of salvation invites us to come to you. When your words rules our heart we have peace and prosperity. May we always strive to be filled with your word and be ruled by it that we may please You always. Amen (1/7/18)
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
Lord I give you my heart. I give you my soul I want to praise you and may my praise be unending. It is nothing but gratefulness that fills my heart because you continue to be an awesome God and you surprise me always with benefits so your praise shall always be in my mouth.
Lord as we have started this year, there are many things that weigh on our minds as we remember how the past went. We remember our triumphs and setbacks and we wonder how this year would be in terms of the totality of our lives and experiences. Lord one thing that rings clearly in our ears and minds is hope. We hope and trust that you will take us through as we walk with You each day. Amen (1/6/18)
Light at Christmas
Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes, let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You
Here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You’re my God- Hillsong
Lord we cannot pipe down at this time, we want to join the heavenly angels as they exult in your praise in heaven and remember your birth. O what a glorious time especially when we remember all that would happen after your birth and the victory you get us by going ahead to die for us and being resurrected. What a great moment to recall. Let the rejoicing continue.
Lord we have just started the period when it grows dark yet so early. Lord the darkness makes many so gloomy and reminds us of all the difficulties we have. In the midst of this we get Christmas and the light that the birth of Jesus sends our way. Lord may your light shine on us and all the blessings it brings during Christmas and beyond. Amen (12/24/17)
Deliver us from holiday stress
Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above!
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray
In fathomless billows of love!-Warren D. Cornell & William Cooper
Lord who made the heavens and the earth I praise and adore you. Your name is above every other name and you sit above every principality and power. I worship You because you are my God and my Father and you have done and continue to do so much for me. Thank you, thank you my Lord.
Lord this is the season when we feel so much stress. There is so much to be done- people to be thought of, gifts to be bought and sent out or presented. There is planning and shopping to be done. Many a time in the midst of all this hustle and bustle, we feel so overwhelmed by all that we have to and also want to accomplish for ourselves and others. Sometimes an added stress is when we do not have the means to do all we want to during this Christmas/ holiday season. Lord help us, give us peace and calmness at this time and may we trust you the more and leave things more in your Hands. Amen. (12/22/17)
Letting God to be God
Your world is forever
Settled on the Earth
And your plan is for me is perfect and complete…
So I never have to be afraid
I can trust you God
Trust you sovereign God
No matter what may come my way
I can trust you God
Trust you sovereign God- William McDowell
O Lord my wonderful Savior I join the songwriter to declare that I in awesome wonder consider all the works thy hands have made including myself. I see the skies and I hear the rolling thunder, thy power throughout the universe displayed. Then sings my grateful soul my Savior God to thee. Indeed how really great You are.
Lord a lot of times we have tried to play your role. We want to play God and do all sorts of things supposedly in your name. Sometimes we want to ‘fix’ things on your behalf when we clearly don’t know what you will. I am thankful that no one can take that path and succeed. Help us O Lord to leave you to be who you are and not try to portray you to who you are not. Amen (12/12/17)
Lord of compassion
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see. – John Newton
Lord of life, lord of mercy, lord of compassion who in this universe can compare to You? Truly there is no shore to your mercy so you have not given us anywhere near what we deserve whenever we have fallen short of your expectations. Who can be more accepting of people than You? Truly you Lord. May your great name be forever lifted up and praised.
Lord you are the lord of compassion. You had compassion on so many when you lived amongst us. You call on us to live according to your example. Lord stir in our hearts constantly the spirit of compassion that we may be able to go out and help others all the time as you would want us to do. Amen (12/7/17)
