A Easter Prayer through Song Titles

I’ve always loved to sing.

As a child, I would go in my room and close the door (thinking no one would hear) and open up the church songbook. After a few practice rounds I would call my grandmother and sing to her.  Recently I thought about how heavy her phone receiver must have weighed. I would sing to her and she would listen – or at least I thought she was. After contemplating the weight of the phone I’m sure she laid it down, picked it up to see if I was still singing and tell me what a great job I did.

Now with that background I thought that I would write a prayer using song titles to express gratitude for what our God and His Son and our Savior did for us as we celebrate this Easter. Italicized words are songs or lyrics of songs.

A Easter Prayer through Song Titles

Father in Heaven how we love you and we praise thee, O God. Father, hear the prayer we offer for you are Holy, Holy, Holy. You are the Father of mercies and great is your faithfulness. Blessed be the Lord God Almighty, a mighty fortress is our God. We Praise thee oh God for our God he is alive. How great thou Art!

It is because of your amazing grace and the wonderful grace of Jesus that we can say His grace reaches me.

Lord we come before thee now and at thy feet we humbly bow. It is on bended knee we enter your presence. Dear Lord and Father of all mankind forgive our foolish ways.

It was love divine that sent your son to die on the cross of Calvary. Jesus our Lord and Savior thank you saving us! Jesus, thy name I love. Jesus, name above all names. Jesus, our redeemer the fairest Lord Jesus!

You gave your life on the old rugged cross. When I survey the cross, and am beneath the cross of Jesus, I realize that Jesus paid it all. It was boundless love that allows me to say that I’m redeemed. He could have called ten thousand angels but He bore it all. He paid a debt and my sins are nailed to the cross. Hallelujah what a Savior!

For it was low in the grave He lay. The good news is that Christ the Lord is risen today. He lives and because He lives there is victory in Jesus. There is power in the blood of the Lamb. A wonderful savior is Jesus my Lord.

Why did my Savior come to earth? Because, Jesus loves me this I know. It was in loving kindness that Jesus came and I am safe in the arms of Jesus. I can say it is well with my soul. I have blessed assurance because of Jesus.

Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah. Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us let us follow in the footprints of Jesus,

Jesus, you are my all in all. You are a wonderful Savior and I will sing the wondrous story to tell others that I know that my Redeemer lives. Oh nobody fills my heart like Jesus. Jesus I long to be with you and pray that soon and very soon we are going to see the King.

Be With Me Lord.

Oh How I Love Jesus and it is his name I pray this prayer.
