The Prayer!

                                         
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.(Phil.4:6)

I love this verse because this verse makes it abundantly clear that we are not to be anxious for NOTHING. I don't think God was asking us as a favor to comply with the said verse, He's outspoken in this command as He is making it clear that we are to surrender ALL our cares to Him in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving so that our requests will be made known to God. In the above verse we have a classic recipe for a very dynamic and successful prayer life! I hope and pray that all of you who read the words and listen to the songs contained in this blog will not only be ministered, but also be encouraged that God is indeed listening to our prayers with divine attention and care. With that said, and without any further delay, I want to introduce to all of you one of the most incredible songs ever written and sung by a truly amazing duo in Donnie McClurkin and Yolanda Adams. The name of the song is The Prayer. May God continue to bless you and keep you friends! Jesus loves you and so do I!...:-).

Here's a small disclaimer: This song will be a major tear jerker!

Here's the lyrics:

The Prayer with Yolanda Adams

Y: I pray you'll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don't know

Let this be our prayer
When we lose our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe.

I pray we'll find your light.
Y: I pray we'll find your light

And hold it in our hearts
Y: And hold it in our hearts

And stars go out each night
Y: Stars go out each night

Remind us where you are.
Y: Remind us where you are.

Let this be our prayer
Y: Let this be our prayer

When shadows fill our day
Y: When shadows fill our day

Lead us to a place

Y: Guide us with your grace
D: Guide us with your grace

Together: Give us faith so we'll be safe.

Together:

A world where pain and sorrow will be ended
And every heart that's broken will be mended
And we'll remember we are all God's children
Reaching out to touch you
Reaching to the sky.

D: We ask that life be kind
Y: We ask that life be kind

D: And watch us from above
Y: And watch us from above

D: We hope each soul will find
Y: We hope each soul will find

D: Another soul to love
Y: Another soul to love.

Together: Let this be our prayer
Y: Let this be our prayer

D: Just like every child.
Y: Just like every child.

Together:
Needs to find a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe.
