 Re:

Hello...

Yesterday was Veteran's Day here in the United States. My dad and his brothers are all veterans. My dad served over 25+ years in the military, first as a drafted teenager during the final months of the Vietnam War and through the first Gulf War. I have always admired my dad as a quiet, strong and intellectually gifted man who could have worked anywhere; however, he [i]chose[/i] to continue his service to the people of this nation in the military.

One of my uncles was injured a few years ago in Iraq. The humvee that he was in was hit by an RPG in Fallujah. The men (including his best friend) who were sitting on both sides of him in the back of the humvee were killed. We had been praying for him quite a bit as soon as he went on duty in Iraq, but our family had felt a more urgent need to pray for him (only to find out that this particular urgency that we felt corresponded with the RPG attack). While he was recovering in a hospital somewhere in Iraq, I felt led to write him an email and attach a song that I purchased online. My uncle later wrote me back and told me how much the song meant to him because he could literally "feel" the power behind the prayers that were uttered for him. The entire experience caused him to reflect on his life and drew him into a deeper and more authentic walk with Christ.

Anyway, here are the words of that song. While we may not all be daily walking through a physical "valley of the shadow of death," we each have gone through experiences in our lives that have caused us to reach to the One who sees and knows all things and remember the unfathomable power of honest prayer. Whether you are serving on the front lines of the military, or serving on the mission field in a far off land, or shining the light of Christ much closer to home: Know this -- God hears the prayers of those who call out to Him with all of their hearts (Jeremiah 29:11-13).

[b]Somebody's Praying[/b]
by John G. Elliot

[i]Verse 1[/i]
Somebody's praying, and I can feel it;
Somebody's praying for me.
Mighty hands are guiding me
to protect me from what I can't see.
Lord, I believe! Lord, I believe.
Somebody's praying for me.

[i]Verse 2[/i]
Angels are watching, and I can feel it.
Angels are watching over me.
There's many miles ahead 'till I get home;
Still, I'm safely kept before Your throne.
Lord, I believe! Lord, I believe.
Angels are watching over me.

[i]Chorus[/i]
Well, I've walked the barren wilderness
where my pillow was a stone,
And I've been through the darkest caverns
where no light has ever shown

Still, I went on 'cause there was someone
who was down on their knees.
And Lord, I thank you for those people
who were praying all this time for me.

[i]Verse 1 Repeat[/i]
Somebody's praying, and I can feel it
Somebody's praying for me.
Mighty hands are guiding me
to protect me from what I can't see.
Lord, I believe! Lord, I believe.
Somebody's praying for me.
Somebody's praying for me.

:-)

 Re:

[b]Hold On[/b]
by Twila Paris

[i]Verse 1[/i]

Every little baby
Comes into the world
Reaching for an anchor
Fingers tightly curled

Grasping for a reason
Without knowing why
We will cling to anything
`Till the day we die

[i]Chorus[/i]

We can hold onto sorrow
Hold on to pain
We can hold on to anger
When there is nothing to be gained

We can hold to a thread
At the end of a rope
But if we hold on to Jesus...
We are holding onto hope!

Hold on!
Hold on!

[i]Verse 2[/i]

This is human nature
This is what He planned
When He put our hearts inside
When He made these hands

We are here to reach for Him
Never letting go
This is all we need to have
All we need to know

[i]Chorus 2[/i]

And we can hold on to money
Hold on to fame
We can hold on to glory
And the honor of a name

We can hold to a thread
At the end of a rope
But if we hold on to Jesus
We are holding on to...

Hold on to hope
Hold on to wisdom and grace
Hold on to mercy and love
Hold on!

[i]Repeat Chorus 1 and 2[/i]

We can hold on to sorrow
Hold on to pain
We can hold on to anger
When there is nothing to be gained

We can hold on to money
Hold on to fame
We can hold on to glory
And the honor of a name

We can hold to a thread
At the end of a rope
But if we hold on to Jesus...
If we hold on to Jesus...
If we hold on to Jesus...
We are holding on to...Hope!

Hold on!
Hold on!
Go on!
Hold on!
Hold on!

:-)

 Re:

Another great song...

IMMORTAL, INVISIBLE GOD ONLY WISE
by Walter Chalmers Smith

Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessèd, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, thy great Name we praise.

Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might;
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above
Thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.

To all life thou givest—to both great and small;
In all life thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish—but naught changeth thee.

Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Thine angels adore thee, all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render: O help us to see
’Tis only the splendour of light hideth thee

 Re:

On page 1 of this thread you (Chris) posted 'The Steeple Song' by Don Francisco. Thank you for we were led to visit the Don Francisco website and and found free downloads of most of the songs in MP3 format.

Many of them have taken Bible verses and brought them to life and we feel these are inspired by the Holy Ghost. Others seem more to be fodder to fill out a CD and are more 'Works' oriented and did not suit our ear. We thank God for the ones with the message of the Gospel.

One that stands out as particularly poignant to me is the story Jesus' healing Jairus's little girl.

http://songoffaith.com/mp3s/Albums/HesAlive/HA_GottaTellSomebody_DonFrancisco.mp3

I have always loved this story but when I heard this song it was brought into Living Color.

Just as in the song, I just 'Gotta Tell Somebody, what Jesus did for me!'

Praising Jesus for the faith He has given me.

 Re:


Asleep in Jesus! Blessèd sleep,
From which none ever wakes to weep;
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the last of foes.

Asleep in Jesus! Oh, how sweet,
To be for such a slumber meet,
With holy confidence to sing
That death has lost his venomed sting!

Asleep in Jesus! Peaceful rest,
Whose waking is supremely blessed;
No fear, no woe, shall dim that hour
That manifests the Savior’s power.

Asleep in Jesus! Oh, for me
May such a blessèd refuge be!
Securely shall my ashes lie
And wait the summons from on high.

Asleep in Jesus! time nor space
Debars this precious “hiding place”;
On Indian plains or Lapland snows
Believers find the same respose.

Asleep in Jesus! Far from thee
Thy kindred and their graves may be;
But there is still a blessèd sleep,
From which none ever wakes to weep.

 Have You Counted the Cost?

This song has ministered to much ever since I learned when aa teen back in the 1960's. Perhaps it may minister to others as well. I was reminded of it by an article I just saw on SI with the same title but written from another angle.

May you all be blessed!
ginnyrose

******************************************************

Have You Counted the Cost? by A.J. Hodge

1. There's a line that is drawn by rejecting our Lord
Where the call of His Spirit is lost
And you hurry along with the pleasure-mad throng
Have you counted, have you counted the cost?


2. You may barter your hope of eternity's morn
For a moment of joy at the most
For the glitter of sin and the things it will win
Have you counted, have you counted the cost?


3. While the door of His mercy is open to you
Ere the depth of His love you exhaust
Won't you come and be healed, won't you whisper, I yield
I have counted, I have counted the cost

Chorus:
Have you counted the cost if your soul should be lost
Tho' you gain the whole world for your own?
Even now it may be that the line you have crossed
Have you counted, have you counted the cost?

 Re: Just as I am

Just as I am, without one plea,
but that thy blood was shed for me,
and that thou bidst me come to thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, and waiting not
to rid my soul of one dark blot,
to thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, though tossed about
with many a conflict, many a doubt,
fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
sight, riches, healing of the mind,
yea, all I need in thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, thou wilt receive,
wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
because thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, thy love unknown
hath broken every barrier down;
now, to be thine, yea thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

 Re:

A song that I love to sing is called Dark but Lovely by Sarah Edwards, it brings me great encouragement that though I am dark and unfavorable the Good Lord sees me as Lovely to his eyes.

I can't understand this work of Grace.
How a perfect God would come and take my place.

The Stars they don't move you
The waves can't undo you
the Mountains in their slendor
They cannot steal your heart
This God who is Holy
Perfect in beauty
Awesome In Glory
is Ravished by my heart

Though I'm poor you say I'm lovely
though I'm Dark you say I'm beautiful

Somehow my weak glance has overwhelmed you
Somehow my weak love has stolen away your heart!
