 Set Me Ablaze

[b]Set Me Ablaze[/b]

Set me ablaze dear God with your all consuming fire,

Give me an irrepressible passion

Unquenchable, and without tire.

Water my hardened heart with your lovesick tears,

Strip away my foolish pride,

So to your ways I may adhere.

Place a longing in my heart that will not go astray,

Less I forget the undone souls dieing everyday

Pour rivers of compassion through my dry and listless eyes,

Holding steadfast to your path, so as to never compromise

Help my prayers be fervent, ever pressing deep,

Whether through valley, or up mountain steep

Purify this wretched vessel; purge me from all sin,

Gut me out of all the darkness hidden deep within

Help me to be reckless, not caring how I’m viewed,

With a tongue aflame with words of power that come from only you

And may my life be ever crucified upon that Calvary tree,

Surrendering all I have and am forever unto thee

Molly Harrison




SET ME ABLAZE WITH YOUR ALL CONSUMING FIRE

“Lord, set me on fire, that they may watch me burn!” God is a consuming fire. We need to burn with holiness, purity, sacrifice, humbleness. Burn out our iniquities. Burn away our flesh! Paul said, “Who is led into sin, and I do not inwardly burn?”

GIVE ME AN IRREPRESABLE PASSION

A love that is impossible to restrain or control. “For the love of God constraineth us.”

UNQUENCHABLE AND WITHOUT TIRE

That we may stay up in the midnight hours as Paul and Silas did! That the ways of the world will not get us to be lukewarm

WATER MY HARDENED HEART

We have grown cold to the groanings of the Lord.

WITH YOUR LOVESICK TEARS

He weeps for the state of His bride. She’s not ready! He weeps for the lost! His bride has Gospel, but she’s not doing anything with it! There’s no power! Ask God to give you His tears!

STRIP AWAY MY FOOLISH PRIDE

We are servants of the Living God! God controls us, we don’t control Him!

SO TO YOUR WAYS I MAY ADHERE

When there is pride we want our way, instead of God’s way. It keeps us from hearing what God is trying to say. “Have Your way Lord!”

PLACE A LONGING IN MY HEART THAT WILL NOT GO ASTRAY

Place a desperation in my heart! “Give me revival or I die!”

LESS I FORGET THE UNDONE SOULS DIEING EVERYDAY

The great commission! 83 souls a minute are devoured into a Christ less Eternity

POUR RIVERS OF COMPASSION THROUGH MY DRY & LISTLESS EYES

When was the last time you wept for your nation? Our eyes have never been so dry and lifeless to the sin and state of the world and to the grief of God

HOLDING STEADFAST TO YOUR PATH, SO AS TO NEVER COMPROMISE

We need to stop enlarging the path. The Lord said it was narrow that means it’s narrow! When you compromise you are stepping out of the narrow road! Some of us live on the very edge of it and that’s why most times we find ourselves out of it! Learn to stay in the middle of the narrow road!

HELP MY PRAYERS ME FERVENT, EVER PRESSING DEEP

We need to learn to travail, that’s the only thing that will save us in these last days. Paul said, “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.” Isaiah says of Jesus, “He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied,” The greatest prayer in the Bible was in Gethsemane. Don’t you think it took travailing to get him through! It wasn’t, “If you could help me out Father and take this cup that would be great.” No, He sweat drops of blood! He died right then and there!

WETHER THROUGH VALLEY, OR UP MOUTAIN STEEP

We need to learn to press in no matter what season we are going through! Learn to rejoice in the midst of suffering because you know God is making you into a true man or woman of God!

PURIFY THIS WRETCHED VESSEL

We sometimes have forgotten the depths from which he had been delivered from! We are wretches without Christ!

PURGE ME FROM ALL SIN

To undergo or cause an emptying of toxic waste. To free from impurities. To rid of foreign elements. To free from defilement

GUT ME OUT OF ALL THE DARKNESS HIDDEN DEEP WITHIN

All the things we don’t want anyone else to know about!

HELP ME TO BE RECKLESS, NOT CARING HOW I’M VIEWED

Look for the approval of God, not man! As Paul says, “The world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” Also, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.” (example of what the best thing the Lord could say to me is)

WITH A TONGUE AFLAME WITH WORDS OF POWER THAT COME FROM ONLY YOU

Flaming tongues came over the people in the upper room at Pentecost. They symbolized the power of the Holy Ghost. We need those kind of flaming tongue again, ones that bellow “Repent for the end is at hand!” “Wake up from your complacency!” Those tongues saved two thousand people the first time Peter opened his mouth to preach. And continued to save until he too, was crucified.

AND MAY MY LIFE BE EVER CRUCIFIED UPON THAT CALVARY TREE

We need to not just get to the cross, but get on the cross and stay there! Bear the disgrace he boar! Most of us could not stand 5 minutes in the feet of Jesus and yet He says to follow in his footsteps. We are always trying to defend ourselves, always trying to achieve happiness and fulfillment here on this earth. When are we going to realize that this is not our home! When are we going to start becoming Eternity minded! Paul said “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.” (example of what the best thing the Lord could say to me is)

SURRENDORING ALL I HAVE AND AM FOREVER UNTO THEE

He gave us his life, shouldn’t we give him ours? Surrender my desires for His.

 Re: Set Me Ablaze

I'm listening to wonderful hymns on [url=www.cyberhymnal.org]online hymns[/url]. Here's one that I'm listening to now that went along with what Brother Greg said.

God send us men whose aim ’twill be,
Not to defend some ancient creed,
But to live out the laws of Christ
In every thought and word and deed.

God send us men alert and quick
His lofty precepts to translate,
Until the laws of Christ become
The laws and habits of the state.

God send us men of steadfast will,
Patient, courageous, strong and true,
With vision clear and mind equipped
His will to learn, his work to do.

God send us men with hearts ablaze,
All truth to love, all wrong to hate;
These are the patriots nations need;
These are the bulwarks of the state.

Sobering words these are.
