Building a House of Prayer (Shortened en
00:00 / 04:59

In the stillness … of silence, Lord,

we listen for Your Word;

in the fragrance  … of Your presence,

Lord, we joy – with a quiet joy;

Your Life within us, Lord, is a wind of change,

blowing through and turning our lives upside down

and as we gather in Your name,

we pray “Your kingdom come.”

 

We are building a house of prayer,

lifting our eyes to the heavenly places,

we seek to be true to the Word that You give

through the things that we do

and the life that we live,

building a house of prayer –

building a house of prayer.

 

In repentance …  for our nation, Lord,

we kneel before Your throne;

for forgiveness … and restoration, Lord,

we cry – like  the psalmist cried;

Your Light within us, Lord, is a holy fire

refining us like silver in its sacred flames 

and as we gather in Your name,

we pray “Your will be done.”

We are building a house of prayer,

lifting our eyes to the heavenly places,

we hunger and thirst for righteousness

through the hope that we have

and the faith we confess,

building a house of prayer –

building a house of prayer.

 

For the healing … of our nation, Lord,

we humbly intercede;

for revival … and salvation, Lord,

we pray – with fervent prayer;

Your Life among us, Lord,

is a healing stream

watering the desert places of our land

and as we gather in Your name

we pray “deliver us.”

 

We are building a house of prayer

lifting our eyes to the heavenly places,

we cry out to You, our God and our King

through the words that we speak

and the songs that we sing,

building a house of prayer –

building a house of prayer - 

building a house of prayer.
