From Hillsong's The Stand and Praying the Scriptures for Your Teenagers
You stood before creation Eternity within Your hand You spoke the earth into motion My soul now to stand You stood before my failure Carried the Cross for my shame My sin weighed upon Your shoulders My soul now to stand So what can I say What can I do But offer this heart O God Completely to You So I'll walk upon salvation Your Spirit alive in me This life to declare Your promise My soul now to stand So what can I say What can I do But offer this heart O God Completely to You So I'll stand With arms high and heart abandoned In awe of the One who gave it all So I'll stand My soul Lord to You surrendered All I am is Yours
Please let my kids remember You in their youth (Ecc. 12:1).
Tune their ears to hear Your voice so that, as Samuel dud when he was a boy, they will invite You to speak to them and they will listen to Your words. (I Sam 3: 9 - 10)
Allow us all to be rooted and established in love. Give us the power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep your love is. Let us know that this love surpasses all understanding that we may be completely filled with your grace. (Eph. 3:18 - 19)
Give those that have fallen away from you, a singleness of heart and put a new spirit within him. Take away his heart of stone and give him a tender heart instead, so that he will obey you. Let him know that he belongs to You. (Eze 11:19)
Bring my children back to the faith that they knew as children. Let our mouths be filled with laughter, and our tongues with songs of joy. Let our friends and neighbours know that You have done great things for our family. (Psalm 126:1,2)
