A Living Prayer

This song, "A Living Prayer" by Ron Block and recorded by Alison Krauss and Union Station, has been encouraging me this week.  Songs that verbalize my heart's longing have been great graces in my life.  This is one of those, and I was grateful to rediscover it at the right time.  May the Lord use it to comfort and encourage you, as well.  Here is the refrain:

In Your love I find release,
A haven from my unbelief.
Take my life, and let me be
A living prayer, my God, to Thee.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship (Romans 12:1, NIV).

  4. What a beautiful song!The scripture about being a living sacrifice and the last line of the refrain about being a living prayer go together in a compelling way.
