He Longs To Hear

I often seek to hear God’s voice
To guide me day by day
He comes and gently speaks to me
Showing me the way

He spoke before the dawn today
His words were very clear
He told me that most every day
My voice He longs to hear

He longs to hear me giving thanks
For all that he has done
From the Spirits leading in my life
To the giving of His Son
Each day He makes the sun to rise
And the stars to shine at night
Oh that we would thank the Lord
For the blessings in our lives

He longs to hear me praying
For the many that I know
Who need a touch from Him today
His power He wants to show
All week I told those close to me
That I would pray for them
He longs to have me take the time
To lift those prayers to Him

He longs to hear me praise Him
With all my heart and soul
To lift His name above all names
His glory to be told
With mighty anthems raising high
Our Hallelujahs ring
Lift up His praise for all to hear
As His great name we sing

Jesus mighty Son of God
All power and praise to you
Glory in the highest
I lift my arms to you
Praise and adoration
With all I have within
Exalted is your name oh Lord
My God, my everything

Always Amazing

Jesus is always amazing
His mercies are new every day
The sun never quits
From dawn ’til it sets
It lightens our path all the way

It’s amazing He takes time to hear me
When I call out to Him in prayer
His ear is inclined
He walks by my side
I know that He always will care

Oh what a Savior is Jesus
How wonderful is His sweet name
Jesus my Lord and my Refuge
I lift up my voice in praise
Praise to the one who redeemed me
Praise to the Lamb on the throne
Praise to the one who rose from the dead
So I could make heaven my home

Magnificent is my Lord Jesus
His Spirit lives deep in my soul
When I need strength
His power will sustain
He’ll never allow me to fail

I marvel at how He surrounds me
With the miracle of His sweet grace
When I mess up
He showers His love
Amazing me time and again

Oh what a Savior is Jesus
How wonderful is His sweet name
Jesus my Lord and my Refuge
I lift up my voice in praise
Praise to the one who redeemed me
Praise to the Lamb on the throne
Praise to the one who rose from the dead
So I could make heaven my home

The Answer Is Yes

There’s a call to serve the Lord today
This I know is true
The question that awakens me
Is what can this man do

I open my eyes to look around
At a world that needs His love
I’m just one person in a small town
Can I really do enough

The answer is yes
Absolutely yes
He said I could move mountains
And do much greater things
When I reach out in faith
And I pray most earnestly
I can change a life for someone
Yes, yes, yes

I began to see around me
Little needs I could fulfill
From providing a few groceries
To a gas tank that needs filled

An old man need company
On a long ride for his health
So I rode along beside him
And shared the gospel wealth

There are so many ways we can reach out
So many things we can change
If well just take the time to bow down
And fall on our knees in prayer

The most powerful weapon I can yield
Against the enemy
Is a prayer life for others daily
That’s designed to meet their needs

As I pray for the lost and lonely
God will open my eyes to their needs
Then I step out in faith to help them
Change the world why yes indeed

The answer is yes
Absolutely yes
He said I could move mountains
And do much greater things
When I reach out in faith
And I pray most earnestly
I can change a life for someone
Yes, yes, yes

Always Blessed 

I woke up abruptly the room bathed in light
It seemed that an angel was blinding my sight
Come closer He whispered and called me by name
I come here to bless you don’t be afraid

The Lord sent me to you to grant you one wish
Anything can be yours i will grant your request
I was awed by His splendor his voice was surreal
I thought this a dream but knew it was real

Anything could be mine from riches to fame
More wisdom or power could be mine today
I thought for a moment how my life would change
If any of these things would be mine today

Then I realized what a great life I had
I needed not riches or power or fame
I have a great family who loves me so much
I have lots of friends i am blessed by God’s touch

I looked at the angel the words came quite clear
Please heal my good friend so he’ll live many years
He has aches and pains and his nerves are all shot
He sure needs a touch for he lives God so much

The angel just smiled it is done He replied
You have spoken your wish your friend will arise
Then he left just as fast as he had appeared
But before he did these last words I did hear

Because you have prayed for your friend on this day
There’s a blessing that will soon be coming your way
I smiled as he left knowing he was correct
When we pray for others we always are blessed

It Moves!

I never before have announced
Something special in one of my rhymes
But today I am breaking tradition
‘Cause I want to announce this on time

I’m pleased to let all of you know
This bad shoulder I’ve had for a year
Has now started to move on it’s own
In response to all who gave prayer

So I thank you with all my heart
For the prayers you have said for me
This cancer will certainly pass
Since we all have the faith to believe

 

In response to the daily prompt Pleased

My Poor Tired Feet

I cannot remember the last time I ran
My body is older and larger
There is no doubt
That running is out
It’s too hard on my feet and my arches

But I do run to Jesus when troubles arise
And He gives a pause that refreshes
He inclines His ear
My prayers He does hear
And blesses me with His good answers

 

In response to the daily prompt Pause

Grace Is Everyting

He is here very near
Guiding me each day
Helping me to overcome
Trials on the way
He is watching eyes on me
Keeping me from harm
Seeing that I have His love
In His outstretched arms
Jesus my dear Savior
What a friend To Me
Always there
Always cares
Filling all my needs
Jesus precious Jesus
My redeemer King
Watching me
Hearing me
Grace in everything
He is hearing ears on me
Every single prayer
What a comfort I can feel
Knowing that He hears
He will answer in His time
His word has promised me
I will never doubt His love
What He wants will be
Holding me hearing me
Loving me watching me
Guiding me cares for me
Grace in everything
Jesus my dear Savior
What a friend To Me
Always there
Always cares
Filling all my needs
Jesus precious Jesus
My redeemer King
Watching me
Hearing me
Grace in everything

Nothing Too Hard

There’s nothing to hard
Nothing impossible
Nothing my God can’t do
Mountains can move
Rivers can stop
So He can guide you through
No sickness can stay
Disease must obey
When God sets His mind on you
All enemies flee
When my God speaks
His words are power and truth
Lift up His name
Give our God praise
Worship His holy name
Jesus our Lord
King evermore
Worthy of all our praise
When my prayers go up
To His throne above
His answer is on the way
Just wait on the Lord
His timing is sure
There’s blessing in every delay
When fear fills your heart
And doubt gets a start
That God may not hear your request
Just turn to His word
And know that He heard
He’ll give you His absolute best
Lift up His name
Give our God praise
Worship His holy name
Jesus our Lord
King evermore
Worthy of all our praise
When Jesus had died
On the cross crucified
A large stone was sealed for the door
The stone rolled away
That marvelous day
Now He lives forevermore
Lift up His name
Give our God praise
Worship His holy name
Jesus our Lord
King evermore
Worthy of all our praise

Implicit Trust

I trust the Lord
Implicitly
No doubt
No confusion
No wondering

Many times
It’s not a matter of what
Or How
Or Why

It’s a matter of when
The answer will come

It’s in His hand
And on His schedule
Because
He knows what’s best
For me.

So I learn to wait
Wait for healing
Wait for deliverance
Wait for understanding
Wait for Him
 
And in my waiting
I praise Him
I rejoice
In His mercy
And grace

What an awesome God
I serve
He gives so much
To me
When I lift up
My prayer
He hears me
Yes  He hears me
What an awesome God
I serve

Friend To All

I looked up at the Lord
And He saw me
He saw my pain
And misery
He brought me out
And set me free
What a Savior
What a friend

I cried unto the Lord
He heard my plea
Then He came
And rescued me
He’s always near
Where I will be
What a Savior
What a friend

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
 
I waited for my Lord
To strengthen me
As I lift up
My prayer of need
Until the answer
I would see
What a Savior
What a friend

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise

Merciful to me, so merciful
Loving me despite my sins
His grace is given out
His love is without doubt
He’s always there to help me win

Savior of the world He is
Crowned with love and righteousness
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
Friend to all who call His name
I will always sing His praise
