My Prayer For You

A couple of weeks ago I heard this song while listening to one of my stations on Pandora.  The artist is Sandi Patty – and she is singing this on a family cruise.  Her husband and family happened to be in the audience that night and she dedicated the song to them.

The lyrics to this prayer are personal to her,  yet relate-able to all of us.  Sometimes I am overwhelmed with problems of the day.  Insecurities that would try to rob me of the tiniest of blessings.  I feel good one day, the next I’m faced with emotions that threaten to overcome me.  It is in times like these that this song is a comfort.  It is a solid reminder of the love of God in my life – even when I don’t feel it.  He is holding me, giving me peace and strength to go on.  Helping me to make good choices, to set myself apart from mediocrity and complacency.  And most of all – to learn to share with others and give my life away.

If you are like me and have those good and bad times, this is a great reminder of the love that God has for you.  Not just when you’re feeling up and things are going your way – but in the not so great times, when things are dark and foreboding.  When there seems like there is no help in sight – or anyone who understands.

This song is for you.

God Bless

 

 

That you would know the love of God
That you would grow to love his truth
Savor him and know that he is good

To know he dances over you
And that he finds delight in loving you
He made you he formed you for his own

I pray you’ll always keep the faith
And find your life in God alone
When darkness comes you’ll hide inside his love

Cause when the night takes over day
Jesus will always be your only way
His hand will calm the fears that cloud your soul

That you will give your life away
And that your hands will always share his tenderness
Your feet will walk the road that leads to peace
That you’d bring honor to his name
That you would know him well
And make him Lord

This is his plan; this is my prayer for you
This is his plan; this is my prayer for you
This is my prayer for you

Little Narrow Gate

This song is one you may not have heard often – or at all.  But it is one of my favorites by great gospel singer Sandi Patty.  Music and lyrics like this are nothing short of inspiring!  I trust you will find the beautiful melody and rich lyric line a little lift today – as you find your own little narrow gate.

 

God Bless

Chorus:
There’s a little narrow gate
At the top of a hill
And it beckons my heart to enter in
And follow where it will
Oh, where it will
And the path that leads through this gate of dreams
Takes me away

With the wind at my back
The journey before me
I set my feet on the road that leads to life
And take the hand of the one
Who’ll be my companion
For he will show me the place to begin

Repeat Chorus

All of my life I’ve been waiting
Could this be the place I can start

Repeat Chorus

Another Time Another Place

Watching this video today brings back so many memories!  This duet and song is one of my FAVORITES from back in the day – (look at Wayne Watson’s long hair!) and both of these artists are still touring, writing and singing today – 20+ years later!  Sandi Patty and Wayne Watson are the real deal and this is just one example.   Truly an underrated song with wonderful lyrics, melody and incredible voices – hope you enjoy going down memory lane today as much as I did.  Parts of this song gives me chills!

 

God Bless!
