Bang bang bang!!
The hammer keeps banging at the bones. He tries to rub the knee but the pain cannot be touched; it is only felt.
Bang bang bang!
His eyes become watery and he lifts up his leg, hoping the pain will subside….
But this pain sometimes never listens: Bang bang bang!
I do what I know best but at some point the groans almost whet my eyes to tear. So I walk out of the room, praying he gets better.
I wish I could explain it was a friend, but no- it’s my brother in crisis.
Desert Song, Hillsong
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
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
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
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favour and providence flow
I know I’m filled to be emptied again
The seed I’ve received I will sow…
