“Into The Day”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Heart Dedication, God’s Kingdom, Jesus Christ)

Into ThE Day

Take the hearts, they are Your own,
Call the ones from faraway roam-
Cover with song that whispers “Home”.

Pass again as if in birth,
give all recall of Your Worth-
how the nations cry from earth.

Love, the spire that reaches to,
Prayers, our voice, the call into-
Thy Kingdom come, your Holy way.
Speak Oh Lord, into the Day.

Psalm 27:4 —One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.

Psalm 27:8 —You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, LORD, do I seek.

Isaiah 9:7 –Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

“The Air We Breathe”, from L.Willows (Prayer, Unity, Call us Home, Love)

john1721beloved

I long for a gathering that would bring our voices together again. I long for a gathering in this hour that would bring our hearts lovingly before the Lord in Unity.

God, I am praying for your Holy Breath through the power of Your Spirit, that we may be filled today with Your Oneness.  Bend us towards you, convict each of our hearts of sin and help us to repent. We are humbled before you in confession. We depart from you when we do not love, when we judge and when we create false boundaries. Our pride is a mask that blinds us and leads us into a land far from you.

Bring us home, Father into the tent of Your everlasting Love. Gather us as your family. Be the Air that Breathes hope and new life into each of our lives. Lead us into tomorrow with courage, strengthened by Your Presence.

Lead us from fear and secure our hearts in the temple of Your Eternal Understanding. Call us home to Your loving Security when we become separated. Guard us against temptations of this world that fan the flames of your adversaries and lead us in the paths of Righteousness.

Forgive us when we depart from You. Forgive us when we forget that You are the Air that we Breathe. We pray to be in Your Holy Presence. May Your Holy and Living Breath dwell in our hearts in this and every moment. Be the cause that walks before us in our lives. Lord, unite us in the name of your love, in the Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

(Words to the Hillsong Song “Breathe”)

This is the Air I Breathe
This is the Air I Breathe
Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
This is my daily bread
Your very word spoken to me

Chorus

And I
I’m desperate for you
And I
I’m lost without you

 

“Love in the Balance of Heaven and Earth”, a worship poem from Linda Willows

this was inspired at the beginning of the year and I wanted to bring it back…

Love in the Balance of Heaven and Earth

In the mountain tops, I answered,
Near the white cloud mist’s hold.
Where shoulders of green bear gentle earth mothers.
They call up horizons, they reach to sky’s fold.
Bearing weight all, caring with nests filled with gold.

Sweetened with sunlight shed full upon
Mountain fellows, their faces, turned by lives worn.
Here on their shoulders, high in the sky,
dipped in the blue is a Majesty’s’ cry.

Love in the balance of heaven and earth
dreams reach to thee as the clouds fall with mirth.
All into shoulders of gentle green peaks
Like mounds of earth mothers that fall, quake, birth, seek.

Soft are the bellows, on sky mounds that run
lovingly toward, their home near the sun.
Angels paint rainbows in tomorrow’s new day.
from the mountaintop’s glory, in horizons we pray.

Colossians 1:16
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

Psalm 95:3-5
For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.

Psalm 19:1
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
