Song in the Desert

These are the lyrics to the song now playing on my blog. This is my prayer to the Lord for 2009. Soak it in, enjoy!

This is my prayer in the desert
And all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in the hunger in me
My God is a God who provides


And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames

Chorus:
And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare

God is my victory and He is here


And this is my prayer in the battle
And triumph is still on it's way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I'll stand

Bridge:
All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship



This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be emptied again
The seed I've received I will sow
Lord this is my prayer to you. Thank you for being with me through every desert. I will praise you in every season of my life. I will declare your faithfulness to my generation. Thank you for all you are going to do this coming year. All glory and honor to you almighty God!

What a comfort, knowing the Lord is holding your hand and there to help! Praying!
