SONG RECORDING … PLEASE HUG THEM

Not only did I win an award for these song lyrics; but now I express much love and thankfulness for my dear friend Kathleen as well. http://www.kathleensfaithwalk.com/
Once again, she has taken the words the Lord has given me and turned them into a beautiful song.
I pray that her voice is taken by the fragrance of God’s breath and settled into the hearts and minds of many who are in need of comfort.

Thank you heavenly Father for the precious gifts you give us because of Your great love for us. May they be used for Your glory. In Jesus Name. Amen.

bible proverbs heart

PLEASE HUG THEM (A Song for Those Who Are Hurting)
Tears are welling up inside
I see so much around me
Turmoil, sadness, unbelief
Too much for this heart to see

Children crying, some dying
Hunger, thirst and poverty
No love given, no love there
Vacant eyes stare distantly

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away

Women lost without their homes
Men despaired with no income
Families torn, separated
Floods, droughts, fires, storms make them numb

Watching death take victory
Amongst them that are so close
Feeling left behind, worthless
Overwhelmed by each new dose

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away

So that is why, I now cry
And stand before You broken
Release them from emptiness
Let Love be heard and spoken

All Your creatures are groaning
And nothing can stay the same
Daily there is tragedy
Oh Lord! Reveal Your great Name

Bridge
Hug them like they’ve never been hugged before
Hug them till pure love opens heaven’s door
Hug them till their knees bring them to the floor
Hug them till with joy they praise and adore

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away

URGENCY

URGENCY

I cannot express my words; but still
Upon cleanest paper with the Master’s quill
My prayer goes out to all whom seem lost
Unbelief in my Saviour, who died at all cost
Please, dearest Father, fetch my heart’s distant cry
Bring to the forefront before time run’s dry
My loved ones are trapped upon distant shore
Release them from darkness, I can’t ask for more
The wondrous glories of Thy brilliant creation
Continue to shine and sing with much jubilation
Yet those whom I treasure are stumbling blindly
Can’t yet see of Heaven’s Love given free, so kindly
I cannot express my words; but still
I know my Lord hears all that’s lifted in His will
Precious One to whom every knee shall bow
Fill the void in my life and answer me now
Save my and all whom I hold dear, our loved ones
Open the door, open the eyes, fill with Thy saving grace
Bring all to a knowledge of Eternal Life, show Thy face
The depths of my being shed tears of deep pain
And like the parch-ed, barren land, rivers still need the rain
Fill us dear Father with Thy promises of Love
Thine repentance and forgiveness, gifts falling from above
Remember not the sins of our dear family
Love our loved ones with Thy Love as a new day we see
Dawning on the nights of their unknown pain
Wondrous fragrance, new life, spring-time colours … Salvation’s rain

A PRAYER FROM THE HEART

A PRAYER FROM THE HEART

Today I share my prayer … the reason … I am unwell … cannot speak for long without coughing … felt led to write it down instead … I pray it may help another in any form of distress, sickness, and circumstance where prayer to our ever loving Lord and Saviour is hampered. God bless.

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

Heavenly Father
The one True God
My Father
O how I love You
In Jesus Name Lord
I thank You for this beautiful day
The sun is shining, the birds are singing
The rain has ceased for now; but has given life to so much
Lord, I lift this day unto You
For this is the day that the Lord has made
I will rejoice and be glad in it
Father I lift my family unto You
I pray for each of my loved ones
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in each
Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually
In our children’s future marriage partner’s lives also Lord
And in our children’s future childrens’ lives
Please Lord, please send Your Word and save us
Send Your Word and heal us
Save us and we shall be saved
Heal us and we shall be healed
I thank You for answered prayer Lord
Please open the eyes of my loved ones
Remove any scales that remain on those who love You
But have as yet to fully admit it
In Jesus Name, in Jesus Name
Open the eyes of understanding
Grant us wisdom and knowledge O God
Please cover and protect our homes, every building we enter and leave
Our properties, watch over our beloved pets
Grant us travelling mercies

And rid our homes, our lives of all that does not bring You glory
Holy Spirit, Comforter, Convicter of hearts
Fall upon this family, our family tree, our dearest friends
Our neighbourhoods, this nation, our world
Bring comfort to those who are mourning, suffering
Bring conviction to those with hard hearts, cold hearts
Jesus, I pray Your healing virtue be released in this home
In this nation, in earth
We need You, we need You
Only You can bring the gift of release, the gift of salvation
Release from darkness, hurt, shame, grief, loss, uncertainity, fear
Addiction, abuse, persecution, loneliness, abandonment, sickness, a sin-sick heart
O Lord, how we need You
Father, I lift Israel unto You
I pray for the peace of Jerusalem
I pray for her leader, his family, his government, the decisions that are being made
Have to be made
I pray for their protection, for wisdom, for strength, for guidance amidst such
Hatred and persecution
Open the eyes of Your people
I pray for those who are blessing Israel Lord
I pray for those who are cursing her
Individuals or nations
For You have promised to bless those who bless her
And curse those who curse her
Please change cold, cold hearts, Lord
Hearts of stone into hearts of flesh
Nothing is impossible for God
You can change the course of the mighty rivers
Nothing is impossible for You
O Lord, flood the nations with Your glory
I love You Lord
I trust You
You are my God
In the precious Name of Jesus I pray
Amen
