Effective Prayer

I Come To You

My days are filled with great temptation
Sometimes I can’t resist
My flesh is weak
Your grace I seek
Out of despair I come to you

I don’t deserve to feel your presence
Yet every day your Spirit comes
You help me see
What I might be
If I will only come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

Down on my knees I plead for healing
My tears of sorrow touch the ground
My heart is spent
As I repent
My soul rejoices as I come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

I need your strength
I need your power
I need your joy
I need your peace
I need your love
I need your Spirit
All these will come when I come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

Jesus His Majesty

When I look at your face I see mercy
Hanging there on that cross
Because of your love and compassion
My sins and my shame have been washed

When I look in your eyes there’s compassion
Even though you are in pain
You suffered and died for my healing
By your stripes I have been saved

You poured out your life
You gave all you had
Mercy was granted to me
Marvelous Savior
Wonderful King
Jesus His Majesty

When I look at the cross there is grace
Looking right back at me
What a wonderful gift you have given
By your death I have been set free

You poured out your life
You gave all you had
Mercy was granted to me
Marvelous Savior
Wonderful King
Jesus His Majesty

Oh what love He has for me
Oh what love He has for me
Oh what love He has for me
Jesus His Majesty

You poured out your life
You gave all you had
Mercy was granted to me
Marvelous Savior
Wonderful King
Jesus His Majesty

He Could Have

He could have let me die
Swallowed by my sin
He could have left me trapped
By the demons deep within
He could have turned his back
On all my misery
He could have but He didn’t
By His grace He set me free

He could have kept his joy
And left me in despair
He could have kept his peace
And left my life impaired
He could have kept his hope
And left me with no plan
He could have but he didn’t
By His grace he took my hand

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

He could have curbed my faith
So doubt would fill my mind
He could have withheld goodness
So that I would not be kind
He could have left me reeling
In sickness and disease
He could have but He didn’t
Instead he blesses me

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

One day he will come back to welcome me home
He could have stayed in heaven and be worshipped on His throne
He chose to come and take for me the torture of the cross
He could have let me die in sin but instead He paid the cost

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

 

The Believers Life

The Great Display of Grace

I know that I’m now worthy of the love He has for me
He left His home in heaven just to die upon that tree
A sadness wells inside me every time I see His face
As the angels gaze in heaven at His great display of grace

He didn’t have to die for me yet suffered all that pain
The horror that he went through brought to Him no earthly gain
When he cried out it is finished all of heaven gave applause
My freedom had been purchased by the power of the cross

What a wonder now to see Him sitting on His royal throne
He has risen all victorious from a grave He did not own
Death defeated now He reigns over all my eyes can see
His great display pf grace has given me that victory

Now I lift my praises high to my Savior and my Lord
I stand and lift my hands to the one that I adore
Jesus Christ the Lamb of God is lifted high in all my praise
As I think about His mercy and His great display of grace

Out Of The Mire

In my distress

I cried to the Lord

He lifted me out of the mire

Carried me up 

To a lofty place

And filled all my heart’s desire

Now I can sing

Of His wonderful grace

His mercy is covering me

I’ll lift up His name

His wonderful name

For He has supplied all my needs

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

Oh what a Savior

Is Jesus my Lord

What a wonderful Savior to me

Whenever I’m down

He lifts me up

Then walks down the road with me

The joy of the Lord is my strength 

His peace oasses all I know

The hope that He gives is enduring 

Oh how He loves me so

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

His Plan Is For Me

Why should I worry
Why should I fret
When I know God is in control
There is no trial
Or test in this world
That God cannot save me from

Why would I falter
Why would I fear
When the enemy comes at me
I have the strength
Of Jesus Christ
And He has a plan for me

His plan is victory
His plan is peace
His plan is perfect
His plan is for me
His plan will take me
To blessings untold
I want to follow His plan

In Him is mercy
In Him is grace
In Him I cannot go wrong
He will protect me
Watch over me
He makes my weakness strong

I pray I will walk
Daily with Him
Not leaving His precious side
I’ll never turn back
I’ll follow His ways
All the days of my life

Through and Through

I can’t explain His mercy
I can’t explain His grace
I can’t explain the love He has for me
For when I was a sinner
Didn’t even know He cared
He left His throne to come and rescue me

I was lost and lonely
Drowning in despair
My life was heading down a wicked road
A still small voice then spoke
It called to me that day
I knew that there was nowhere else to go

What a wondrous Savior
What a faithful friend
That He would love me just the way I am
I knelt before the altar
I gave my life to Him
That day the road I travelled led to Him

Today I try to serve Him
With all my heart and soul
But often I will stumble and will fall
He treats me with compassion
He shows His grace to me

I understand He loves me
But I cannot explain
Why He would forgive the things I do
I’ll rest here in His mercy
I’ll rest here in His grace
Because I know He loves me through and through
