I’ll Pray Again

Our youngest son and his family began their first ministry earlier this year.  He is serving as a youth pastor.  As we are currently visiting in the states, he invited us to the church for a special concert they were having Wednesday night.  It is always a blessing to participate in these kinds of things since we don’t get to do it in Japan.  

If you have followed me for very long, you know that music is an important part of my walk with the Lord.  Time and time again the Lord has used Word-filled music to speak to my heart and to help lift me out of a pit of discouragement.  

Last night, Ben Everson introduced the following song that he wrote with pastors in mind.  He talked about the target that they have on their back.  Satan doesn’t want them keep doing what they are doing.  He encouraged everyone to pray for their pastor and his family.  

Once again the Lord used music to minister to my weary heart.  I wanted to share it here with you.  Listen and read the words that I have shared below and let’s all pray again!

It was late Sunday night
The car door closed softly,
Footsteps came up the stairs.
Young Pastor Tony
Met his wife at the entrance,
His face lined with a thousand cares.
“We′ve been here two years and nothing’s changed,
These people won′t listen at all.
I’m out of answers, and I’m feeling small.”
But as he read in the Bible, page after page,
His heart was convinced to stay in the race.
He knelt by his desk, then lay on the floor.
“Tho′ I don′t understand what it’s for,
I′ll trust one day more.”

I’ll pray again, I′ll kneel again.
I’ll knock on the door, askin′ for more
Strength for the fight, peace in the night.
Trusting by faith, the answer He’ll send.
I’ll pray again…”

At a quarter past two,
Again in the morning,
A mother wakes up again.
Her youngest daughter has a special condition,
They say that she won’t pass ten.
Tho′ worries so great, and nothing’s changed,
“Does God understand us at all?”
We′re out of answers and we’re feeling small.
But as she read in the Bible page after page,
The comfort came in right along with grace.
Her hand held her daughter and they knelt on the floor.
“Tho′ we don’t understand what it′s for,
We’ll trust one day more.”

We′ll pray again, we’ll kneel again.
We’ll knock on the door, askin′ for more
Strength for the fight, peace in the night.
Trusting by faith, the answer he′ll send.
We’ll pray again…

When the darkness surrounds you,

And God seems so silent,
Your back′s against the wall.
You may be tempted to doubt God’s goodness,
It feels like, He won’t hear your call.
The questions take shape and cloud your mind.
“Is God in control after all?
My life′s out of balance and I’m going to fall.”
But as you read in the Bible page after page,
You′ll see that He’s there, and He’ll never forsake.
Surrender your life is all you must do.
You begin to see God′s point of view,
He′s there to change you.

You’ll pray again, go kneel again.
Go knock on the door, askin′ for more
Strength for the fight, peace in the night.
Trusting by faith, the answer He’ll send.
Go pray again.
Go pray again.
I’ll pray again.
