Purposeful Prayer

With rumors of war

and moral decay,

’tis time to rise up;

for people to pray.

God saves His children,

with mighty right hand.

He holds the power,

to peace in this land.

He hears the heart cry,

of all who do call.

His heart is for us,

so that none will fall.

He always answers,

from heaven on high.

No prayer unnoticed;

no tear He won’t dry.

So trust in the One,

Who’s mighty to save.

Ender of darkness,

the Lighter of days.

“Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He answers him from His holy heaven with the saving power of His right hand.” – (Psalm 20:6)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that from the moment we repent of our sins and invite You into our hearts, we are counted among Your anointed.  Not for anything that we have or have not done, but because of what You did on our behalf in Your great love.  Forgive us for forgetting the power that is provided through the prayer of Your people, and help us to lay hold of Your promises so that we may pray in Your power, with confidence that You are already answering what we are asking in Your Name.  Thank You that Your ways are higher than our ways, and though we don’t always see or understand the answers as they come, You are always faithful and always have the very best for Your children.  May our love and prayers for people point them to the path to You.  Amen.

  1. I love that line “Mighty to Save.” Occasionally I will sing this song at church, and those words always move me.

  2. I love that He is the “Ender of darkness / the Lighter of days.” 🙂 Thank you and God bless you!

  3. Beautiful! I love the part where you write:

    No prayer unnoticed;
    no tear He won’t dry.
    So trust in the One,
    Who’s mighty to save.
    Ender of darkness,
    the Lighter of days.

    • Thank you, Juliet. May you feel Him drying every tear, and know He is hearing every prayer as He bring light into every darkness that would try to enter. Blessings to you! ❤ Shannon
