I’ve been attending Aldersgate UMC for a few months now, and one of my favorite parts of service is a Time for Prayer. During this time, the worship team plays a prayer song before and after our time of sharing our prayers, to focus our hearts.
I’ve been praying lately that I would have a prayer song come into my heart for my trip to Zimbabwe. Something that would lead and guide my heart in preparation for the trip, but also as I discern where God is leading me with missions.
Today, I believe I have found my prayer song.
“Oceans (Where My Feet May Fail)” by Hillsong United:
My favorite line is this:
“Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior…”
WOW. I still get “God-bumps” (as my Daddy likes to call them) each and every time I hear that song and read those lyrics. This is my prayer as I journey into an unknown place, across the ocean, further than I ever dreamed or imagined my feet would take me.
Do you have a prayer song? Or is there a song that has guided you in a time of need, heartache, growth, etc.? I’d love to hear!
