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

When All You Can Do Is Pray

When All You Can Do Is Pray

Lord
Things are moving so quickly.
We blink and another tragedy has occurred.
Oh! How we need You. Are desperate for You.
In every area of every minute of every day.
Lord
Pour Your mercy upon us.
Please Lord. Please help all in areas of persecution.
Whether it be in homes. In nations.
Father
Wrap Your arms around our brothers and sisters in Christ.
We praise You for all whom You are drawing out of darkness.
Through this darkness.
Lift them above these terrible trials.
These shocking circumstances which most of us just cannot comprehend.
Lift them, comfort them, provide for them.
Reassure their loved ones.
And most importantly Lord
Through it all. Through it all.
Be glorified.
In Jesus Precious Name.
Amen.
