Desperate for God

ApplesofGldPicDec13

By Nina Hall

“As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.” Psalm 55:16-17
“He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.” Psalm 102:17

Desperate for God

We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To hear from our God a promise clear;
To find his strength, and know his heart
To sense his presence at each day’s start.

We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To not rely on scanty whispers to the air;
To not base all hope on what others may say,
To hear truth beyond words like, “It’ll all be okay.”

 We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To combat the spiritual forces and dare
To wrestle with God till the answer is here;
To never give up, but to persevere.

 We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To be urgent – to abandon our selfish fears;
To entreat him each moment, though our spirits may tire
To weep, humbly bearing each burden and desire.

 We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To know each day that God is there.
To see our dry desert spring forth a fountain;
To reveal each step, and conquer each mountain.

To find grace to endure; seek for heavenly balm
To return every day – in the storms and the calm;
To not rest in the pleadings of yesterday’s tears;
But be desperate for God – be desperate in prayer.
