Getting a Vision

So, I’ve been (actually many people have) praying much lately for our tiny church. They’ve been in pretty much the same Spiritual state for about 30 years. When Satan has had a stranglehold on a congregation for that long, how do you get them truly revived?!? The only answer I can see is prayer! How do you get them to truly pray and honestly seek Him? More prayer from the outside! As a Music Minister, how can I pass a vision to them? I seek God’s guidance over every service, every song, everything I am responsible for. He puts the worship services together. Lately, He has engraved this song on my heart. It’s always there, being as I’ve clung to it as part of my testimony since the moment I first heard it, but He’s given it new life and new meaning in my heart. Allow me to share it with you.

I can’t find the words to pray, I’m a little down today
Can You help me, can You hold me
I feel a million miles away, and I don’t know what to say
Can You hear me anyway

What I need is for You to reach out Your hand
You have taught me no matter what You’d understand

Lord move in a way that I’ve never seen before
‘Cause there’s a mountain in the way and a lock on the door
I’m drifting away, waves are crashing on the shore
So Lord move, or move me

I’ve looked everywhere to find a simple peace of mind
But I can’t find nothin’ on my own
So I gotta leave myself be hind, take up this cross of mine
Give away everything I hold on to

Lord, I know the only way is through this
But Lord, I know I need you to help me do this

Lord move in a way that I’ve never seen before
‘Cause there’s a mountain in the way and a lock on the door
I’m drifting away, waves are crashing on the shore
So Lord move, or move me

Out of this place of complacency
To a place of fellowship with thee
‘Cause I am weak, but Lord, You are so strong
And You know it’s been way too long
It’s been way too long

Lord move in a way that I’ve never seen before
‘Cause there’s a mountain in the way and a lock on the door
I’m drifting away, waves are crashing on the shore
So Lord move

Lord move in a way that I’ve never seen before
‘Cause there’s a mountain in the way and a lock on the door
I’m drifting away, waves are crashing on the shore
So Lord move, or move me

I believe in a Great and Mighty God. Fully capable of growing a complacent congregation of 20 into an “on fire” congregation of 100+! I believe in a God who used Gideon and an army of 300 to defeat the Midianite army! I believe in a God who fed thousands from 2 fish and 5 loaves! I believe in a God that CAN and WILL move mountains!
