Effective Prayer

Honestly

Honestly
I don’t know why you love me
Why you care so much for me
Why you gave your life for me
On a hill called Calvary

Honestly
I try to do my best for you
I try to live my life for you
I try with all my heart and soul
To give you all I have
And give you all my praise

All that is within me wants to worship you
Wants to lift your name on high
Every minute
Everyday
I lift your name
I lift your name

Jesus, Son of God
You came to free me from this sin
That dwells so deep within
Jesus, Lamb of God
You became my sacrifice
Giving me eternal life

All that is within me wants to worship you
Wants to lift your name on high
Every minute
Everyday
I lift your name
I lift your name

Praise and Worship

I Rise to Greet You

I rise to greet you Jesus
I rise to give you praise
I rise before the dawning
To lift your holy name

I rise to read your word
Which satisfies my soul
I rise to intercede
For friends to be made whole

I rise to thank you Jesus
For your amazing grace
I rise to honor you
Your mercy I embrace

I rise this day with worship
Streaming from my heart
I promise you Lord Jesus’
I never will depart

I rise and sing Hosanna
Hallelujah to your name
Glory power and honor
I rise to give you praise

 

Christ Returns

The Coming King

I heard a bell this morning
It sounded out aloud
And then I saw an angel
Descending in a cloud

He said my name is Gabriel
I come to bring you news
Jesus Christ the Son of God
Is coming back real soon

He will come here suddenly
No warning will be given
In one blink of an eye His children
Will join Him in heaven

From this day forward rest assured
The time is coming near
So let your voice give witness
For all the world to hear

They must all confess their sins
And turn from their foul ways
They must accept Him as their Lord
And do good all their days

A trumpet sounded loud and clear
Then Gabriel spoke these words of cheer
May peace and joy rule all in your heart
And from His grace do not depart

With that He vanished in the air
The clouds he came in disappeared
I bowed my head and said a prayer
That I’d be faithful to declare
The King is coming soon my friend
Make sure your heart is right with Him

Mercy and Grace

He’ll Hear My Prayers

Over and over and over again
I try to find peace in this world of pain
I look all around and what do I see
But the devil surrounding and hindering me

He snorts and he glares to make me fear
He brings me more troubles than I can bear
And just when I feel he is making me doubt
I dry out to Jesus and He pulls me out

There’s nothing the devil can do to me
That Jesus won’t fix and give me peace
If I’ll just come to Him down on my knees
He’ll hear my prayers every time

That old enemy just keeps coming back
Hoping my faith is broken and lax
But I have a surprise waiting for him
Jesus has built up my strength within

He raises up His Holy Spirit
Then I feel a surge of powerful word
Get thee behind me you scrawny old beast
I live with Jesus and he has you beat

There’s nothing the devil can do to me
That Jesus won’t fix and give me peace
If I’ll just come to Him down on my knees
He’ll hear my prayers every time

The Believers life

If I Were a King

If I was a king I would make a decree
That all of my kingdom would bow down to me
The all would be servants to meet all my needs
If I was a king on this earth

If I was a king I would have all the riches
The crops and the flocks and all of my wishes
I’d make sure that all would fulfill my petitions
If I were a king on this earth

If I was a king all power would be mine
All things would be subject to my chosen time
I would not allow anyone to decline
If I were the king on this earth

If I were a king I’d fulfill all my lusts
Nothing would be kept from me or my trust
All of my kingdom would mind me or bust
If I were a king on this earth

But Jesus came not as this type of king
Yet He was the highest King of all Kings
He came not demanding I do anything
Yet He was the King of heaven

Jesus was born as a babe in the hay
He walked on this earthy with meekness and grace
He gave up His life and took on my place
Yet he was the King of heaven

This great King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Only came to give His live on the cross
Not to rule and reign while here on this earth
But to give His life away

He was humble and meek, mild and kind
He showed love and compassion to all of mankind
What a lesson He showed us in so little time
A sacrifice of love

So let us not be a burden to others
Let us show grace and love to each other
It’s time to display His love to our brother
So we will join Him in heaven

God's provision

Blessings All for You

We buy our gifts and presents
It seems more every year
And then in one quick day
They quickly disappear

Once opened some will vanish
Like candy for a child
Others will be cherished
And worn for quite a while

But nothing can compare
To the gifts that God does give
He will splurge on all of us
The things that help us live

Joy and peace and hope that lasts
Grace and mercy too
All of heaven opened
Blessings all for you
