WE NEED YOU (Written During Australia’s Fire Crisis) … Prayer for Australia

koala bear koala bear

Lord, our land is crying out to You
Heal us we humbly pray
Our land is parched, our hearts are broken
Breath is taken from Your creation
And hopelessness abounds
So much suffering, all consuming
But look and see Father, faith can still be found
We trust You, we need You, You are all we have
Please open heaven’s gates of mercy
And pour Your healing down
Oh Lord! Pour Your healing down

Many are trapped, have nowhere to go
Open a door oh! Lord
And when the way seems impossible
Flood with Your all surpassing power
Holy Spirit power
May lives be spared, as only You can
Keep our hearts beating, and sweet livestock bleating
Deliver from the ferocity that flows
Please open heaven’s gates of mercy
And pour Your healing down
Oh Lord! Pour Your healing down

The beauty You gifted this nation
Darling koala bears
The creatures, big, small, vulnerable
They cry out as only they know how
Bless all who are fighting
Every service man and woman
Man and animal, birds, nature exhausted
The kangaroos trying to outbound the flames
Please open heaven’s gates of mercy
And pour Your healing down
Oh Lord! Pour Your healing down

Lord, please open heaven’s gates of mercy
And pour Your healing down
Oh Lord! Pour Your healing down

A CHRISTMAS MELODY (Song Lyrics)

christmas background sparkling decorated fir tree sketch

Have you ever stopped to wonder
This divine love, so pure in heart
Heaven-sent above asunder
Flowing from life, so torn apart

Pouring forth sweet adoration
Angels announce this mystery
A birth, Father’s jubilation
Knowing man could now be made free

Found in lowly manger’s holding
Bringing His way and truth and life
Causing hearts to break forth singing
Delivering from sin and strife

Oh what joy, the birth of Christ is
To all becoming sons of God
We lift praise to all that is His
All brought forth out of Jesse’s rod

Emmanuel, everlasting
From eternity past, You came
Oh! Fill us to overflowing
We’ll overcome, You overcame

Fill us with Holy Spirit love
Joy and peace and longsuffering
Gentleness, goodness, wings of dove
Faith, meekness, self-control leading

So think upon this priceless gift
This season of entwining hearts
May healing balm bind every rift
Salvation come, as He imparts

THE CHRISTMAS LOVE SONG

christmas decorations

O sweet Christmas love song
The most beautiful ever born
Your notes are sweeter than honey
With golden melody You adorn

You draw the lost hope out of darkness
You heal every broken heart
You seal each life with eternity
And mend all that’s torn apart

Can you feel new life, and faith birthing
Do you dream of being free
Can you hear the melodies echo
Have you found love’s remedy

Just listen to the Christmas love song
And let Christ’s joy be released
Break off the cold chains of hopelessness
Know that hopelessness has ceased

O This Christmas love song
This Christmas
Find yourself in Him
He was born
And your name was sung
Woven in angelic lullaby
Falling from heaven when His time was come

It’s the Christmas love song
The most beautiful ever sung
The notes are sweeter than honey
The chords bound before the world begun

There is a River

bach creek river

There is a river of love and peace
Where the healing waters flow
And when you place your feet within
Sweet blessings you will know

There is a river of joy and hope
Where the healing waters flow
And when you place your feet within
Your symptoms, they will go

There is a river which runs forever
And as it flows it whispers your name
Oh! Please, come down to the water’s edge
Take a step forward and you’ll never be the same

RIVERS OF MERCY (Song Lyrics)

fast flowing river

His rivers of mercy never run dry
His rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why He has chosen
This heart for His child
Why does He love me so

His rivers of mercy never run dry
His rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why He has saved me
Lovingly made me
Why does He love me so

His beautiful Word
Sings a melody
And all my life, will lead
And this I know
For His Word tells me so
And His Word is all that I need

O Jesus, O Jesus
Your rivers of mercy consumed
And this hidden bud
Once captive in thorns
Is free at last
Fragrance released

Broken hearts will be touched
Songs of joy enter in
Darkness, it will have to flee
And all because, our Father’s love
Is embraced in unfailing mercy

Your rivers of mercy never run dry
Your rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why You have chosen
This heart for Your child
Why do You love me so

Your rivers of mercy never run dry
Your rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why You have saved me
Lovingly made me
Why do You love me so

Rivers of mercy
Rivers of mercy
Flowing from Your throne
Rivers of mercy
Rivers of mercy
I will never be alone
Never be alone
Never be alone
Rivers of mercy

HAVE YOU GIVEN YOUR HEART TO JESUS (Song Lyrics)

beautiful sea view

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

The night has seemed never ending
The cold waves, billowing much pain
Through teary eyes you strain to see
Release from whence this turmoil came

You feel so lonely, so alone
Lost in years of buffeting rain
Listen dear child, open your heart
I can hear Him calling your name

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

A ray of hope descends on you
The clouds scatter, and clear a way
Storms leave on the tail of His breath
Our Lord has living words to say

I am the Answer, your Saviour
I am all you’ve been searching for
My love, I’ve finally found you
And I’m bringing you home to shore

Have you given your heart to Jesus
There’s nothing more important to do
O Come to Him now, He is waiting
Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

STANDING BY THE SEASHORE (Song Lyrics)

child looking at the sea

Coming to a place where my heart beats, and is forever yours
I stand upon the shoreline, and listen to heaven’s applause
It’s taken me so long, the sand gently brushed all pain away
For me to finally hear Your voice, and say, I’m here to stay

O Lord, please hold my hand
A little child am I
I thought I knew it all
And now I may even cry
You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

Your sweet voice was always distant, and yet it was always there
Sometimes, even, O please forgive me, I thought You didn’t care
But now my eyes have been opened, to see what I couldn’t hear
That it’s with my heart I hear You, not with my physical ear

O Lord, please hold my hand
A little child am I
I thought I knew it all
And now I may even cry
You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

And Lord, now that I know the whole truth, the truth shall make me free
All who I am in Christ, all who I was created to be
You will show me, and as I gaze into Your beautiful eyes
I’m standing by the seashore, hearing Your voice instead of lies

You found me
You brought me
You taught me all I knew
Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

O Standing by the seashore
I’ve been made brand new

PLEASE STAY

PLEASE STAY image

You washed me white as snow
You took my stains away
Oh Lord, I love You so
Please stay

You held me as I wept
My pain and grief You bore
My heart cried out to You
Please stay

I could not see for tears
All that You’d done for me
Your life You sacrificed
Please stay

Please help me see the truth
Please help my unbelief
Please heal my broken heart
Please stay

(Insert your name here), open your eyes
I spoke these words for you
It is finished, and all that I’ve done
Has given you the victory
In Me, you’ve already won
And I won’t leave you
I won’t ever forget you
Our Father, He sent Me for you
And We’ve loved you ere the world begun
Over your life, Our love. We’ve sung

So now I say to you
Please stay
Please stay
I’ve healed your heart
Poured My love in
I’ve sealed your life
Cleansed you from sin
Please stay
Please stay

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHER’S DAY (A Song for Anyone with a Sweet Mother’s Heart)

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHERS DAY

O the sweetness of those words
You mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Touches deep, releases joy
Something only a dearest child could say

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

Brings with them, sweet butterflies
Of fleeting memories from yesteryear
Interspersed with cherished love
Can sense their closeness, even if not near

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

Brings a bouquet of sweet intent
And hugs that reach to eternity
Thankfulness for heaven’s gift
Preciousness with a face that’s so pretty

O may I feel your arms surround me
May I feel your breath upon me
May I feel your love towards me
Sweet child, sweet child, of mine

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

AND NOW A PRAYER FOR ANYONE WITH A SWEET MOTHER’S HEART

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHERS DAY (2)

Dearest Heavenly Father
I come before You to lift every Mother unto You
And even though Mother’s Day is a wordly affair
And every day should be Mother’s Day in a child’s heart
You are love
You know our need for love
So I lift all Mothers unto You
All who have never been Mothers
Yet have a Mothering heart
All who are with child at this very moment
But are on the verge of terminating that life
All who are with child at this very moment
But are fearful of losing that life
Due to complications, accidents, medications
All who have lost a child
All who have lost children
Whether miscarried
Stillborn
As an infant
A toddler
Child
Young teen
Teenager
Young adult
An adult
… to silence
All who have a Mothering heart
And through silent tears
Are unable to have children
But Lord
But with God
Nothing is impossible
All who are awaiting the news
Of a missing child
Desperate for news
Hoping, praying
That they will be returned
Safely into their nuturing arms
All who are unable to spend
Mother’s Day together
Due to distance
Sickness
Disagreements
Anger
Hurt
Pride
And any other Mother who due
To no fault of their own
Is just unable to share
This precious day
As is every day
Together
All Mothers who have lost their Mothers
As a child
And never knew them
As an adult
The grief is the same
Anyone who has lost their Mother
Those whose heart is breaking
Because their Mother is so sick
Fear worrying how they will cope without them
O Lord
O Lord
Please also bless those spending
Today together
May they be aware of the gift they have
May Your love abound
May Your love abound
Shed Your love abroad
May it enter deep within all hearts
Unto You Lord
Unto You Lord
Precious Lord
In Jesus Name I pray
Amen
