Simple Things In Life Sunday: Prayer

Simple Things In Life Sunday

I hope all of you have had a wonderful and blessed day today.

In the type of world we are living in today, it is sometimes hard to take the time and be thankful for the many blessings that God has given us.

Right now I am personally going through a storm and I confess that I struggle with rejoicing God in the good times and the bad.  However it is during times like these that God reaches down and provides the comfort that is needed to get through the day.

Music is such an important part of how I worship and praise God for all he has done for me.  When I am unable to speak words, somewhere out there is a song where the lyrics speak volumes.  So with that being said I would like to share with you the lyrics of one of my favorite songs that helps me get through hard times like now.

Praise You In This Storm
By: Casting Crowns

I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to you
And you raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You

But as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away


I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth

So today I am thankful for a simple thing called prayer.  It is such a simple thing, but for some its one of the hardest things they have ever done. 

But truly it is as simple as talking with a friend, your heavenly friend, your father.

That is the very reason that he created us.  So that we could having a lasting relationship with him and commune with him.

So tonight I am thankful that I have a personal relationship with God and no matter what storm I might face he will ALWAYS be with me and will help me fight the fight.  And that when I raise my voice to him he will listen.

"And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him."

1John 5:14-15

So if you believe in the power of prayer I ask that you pray for myself and my family. 

Are you in a storm in your life?
Do you need prayer?
Please let me know and I will pray for you.

Because great things can be accomplished for those who pray for one another.

For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."

Matthew 18:20

May God Continue to Bless you and keep you!

God Bless
Remember Phil. 4:13
