Trinity

Breath of the Spirit

Arms of the Father

Kiss of the Son

Enfolded:

Welcomed without condition

Into this ageless community

Of perfect love

Wrapped tenderly, encompassed

Within its three-fold

Embrace …..read more

Let Me Be

Lord, let me be uplifting.
Let my words be tried and true.
Help me be a reflection
of the love I share with You.

Let me be Your hands extended.
Let my arms hold Your embrace.
May Your mercy be the image
ever shining on my face. ….read more

Dear God

Dear God, I love you so much because I know where I am,
And I know where I used to be,
And where I am is nothing like when my heart left me,

Each day I would wake up and gaze out the window,
But there was nothing to see,
Because everything was nothing to me,

The birds made no sound,
The trees had no color to its leaves,
Cold or hot, I never felt the wind’s breeze,…read more

Vessel of You

Make me a vessel of You, Lord,
filled with Your love so profound.
From the depths of my heart and my soul, Lord,
let Your love to others abound.

Fill me with Your compassion and mercy –
let me cry out in Your Holy Name –
For the lost who are living around me,
that their lives forever will be changed.

Give me strength to stand up for You, Lord,
not stopping to count the cost…..read more

Speak Through Me

Lord, let me be a witness
To the souls You bring my way.
Be it ever so simple,
Let me speak Your words I pray.

Let my life portray the meaning
Of the love You give to all.
Not judging, but ever praying
That upon Your Name they’ll call….read more

Sinners Prayer

Lord, please forgive me
for all the wrong I’ve done.
Take away each and every sin –
Lord, cleanse them one by one.

I believe You are the Son of God,
and that You died to set me free.
You stormed the gates of hell that day,
taking possession of the key.

I believe You rose up from the grave;
the chains of death You broke.
Living to set the captive free –
lifting that burdensome yoke.

Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.
Please fill up that empty space.
Give me peace to live in Your presence.
Let me rest in Your wonderful grace.

Thank You, God, for Your mercy;
for relieving my soul from sin.
Thank You for the gift of Your Spirit;
for giving me joy within.

Amen!

Thank You For The Gift

I remember through my life you told me,
Jesus lives, and He dearly loves you.
Day in and day out; year after year,
this fact, you told me was true.

You taught me that Jesus died on the cross,
bore each stripe, and took all my sins.
Then He rose from the dead to conquer the grave,
so to His fold He could welcome me in….. read more
