Lord, stir the hearts of Christians, now,
To lift our hands, and humbly bow
Before Thy righteous, Heavenly throne;
Acknowledging our sin, alone.
Then as we feel forgiveness flow,
Please stir our hearts, that we would know
Just how to pray effectively,
With our hearts knit, as one, with Thee.
We praise Thee for what Thou wilt do;
And wonder that Thou choosest to
Work in and through our prayers to Thee,
To change the course of history.
But we believe in Thy great power
To move in hearts, this very hour.
So Lord, please let the words we pray
Accomplish Thine own will, this day.
“Confess your trespasses to one another,
and pray for one another, that you may be healed.
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
James 5:16 NKJV
