Praying Big

sunrise april 12th,2014 012I pray Your will, God, be my heart
For You to set my life apart
For perfect love to cast out fear
To know Your presence strong and near

To stand in Holy Spirit power.
To not grow faint with passing hour
To know and speak Your Truth and Word
The Gospel from my mouth be heard

For full assurance of Your ways
As hardship there before me lays
For love to cover many sins
For what I do Christ glory brings

For making strong my feeble hand
For laying all down as I stand
For giving all I have to give
For dying power as I live

“Abide in Me, and I in you. 
As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself
unless it abides in the vine,
so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
I am am the vine,
You are the branches;
He who abides in Me and I in him,
he bears much fruit  
for apart from Me
you can do nothing.”
Jesus, John 15:4-5
