Jimmy recites The Prayer VI

September 18, 2012

Jimmy is a young man who I met at the Salvation Army Lighthouse Centre. He’s not a stranger to the people who serve the Least in Campbell River.

Some Fridays when a few others come in to sing some songs during the lunch, Jimmy will sing along with them or maybe even say a prayer for the meal or the people there. Last Friday he prayed this prayer (a rap song by DMX). And after the meal, I asked him if I could record him saying it again & put it up on the Internet. He liked that idea.

LYRICS:

In the name of Jesus
Father please walk with us through the bad times as well as the good, may we be heard and understood from the suburbs to the hood

May you judge us by our hearts and not by our mistakes, and see that we get a breakthrough however long that it takes

May you fill that void in our souls that will lay our fears to rest, cause there’s no way we can live for Jesus when we’re living in the flesh

So I pray that you allow our spirits to be born, grow strong, move on, know right from wrong

First John chapter 2 verse 15: Do not love the world or anything in the world

And we know what that means, but listen, we know the distance we need to be away from fire to keep it missing, but that doesn’t mean we’ll listen

Lord you take care of fools and babies, you teach women to honor their men, and men respect their ladies, but lately, so many of us have gone astray, doing wrong for so long that we’ve forgotten the way

Please bring us back home instill in us the word which is our backbone

We’re just children that act grown

There is so much that we are entitled to yet we will receive so little, cause in this time of spiritual warfare we are comfortable in the middle

So I pray that you open our eyes, give us the anointing to recognize the devil and his lies

If we keep our actions wise, our prayers sincere, and our heads to the sky, you will diminish our fears

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed

Amen and Amen
