Australia, Hillsong


My daughter gave me a copy of this song tonight.

The lyrics really resonate with where I am right now.

Thanks go to Hillsong for being a voice for this season.

The Desert Song (Lyrics)

Verse 1:
This is my prayer in the desert
And all that’s within me feels dry
This is my prayer in the hunger in me
My God is a God who provides

Verse 2:
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames

And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

Verse 3:
And this is my prayer in the battle
And triumph is still on it’s way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I’ll stand

All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

Verse 4: (Verse 4 is amazing)
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I’m filled to be empited again
The seed I’ve recieved I will sow

Some of the towns completely gone were our favorite places to visit.. So sad, one of our close farmers in church have lost stock due to the heat, yet he still smiles when he …  Read Moresees you, we have alot of farmers who do it tough but hang in there and display the goodness of God. They are great examples…. Leash will keep you updated Ray for Sudan in 2 weeks would really appreciate your prayer… Take care Belinda”

Our church family prayed for Australia yesterday and trust that God will keep all safe on the farm and send rain to that country quick.
