Happy Hal{lelujah}!

Once upon a time there was a little girl that thought she could hide behind a mask. She thought if she could pretend to look like a Christian on the outside then her insides would be clean too. She tried to wear righteousness like a robe. She wanted to be known for how strong of a Christian she was and so the best way to prove it was to make sure that her costume was clean. Jesus had his lights on and he saw her coming. He had the greatest treat of all. He looked beyond what she had on and deep into her heart and saw her desire to follow him. He helped her out of her costume and then he asked her to remove her mask. She understood that if she wanted to look like Jesus, she had to bare herself to the world and look deeper past the masks that everyone wears to hide their fears.

Oh Lord, we need you now
Breathe your life into us
Lord, we need you now
Our churches and our families
Oh Lord, we need you now
Breathe life into this dry and weary land
Raise us up again

Wow! What a beautiful prayer for revival! That song is just great! It's crazy awesome how often I've heard this cry for revival lately. From so many different sources...evidence of the Lord working in the hearts of his people... to unite us in prayer for revival in our nation. And may we allow him to start with us! Revive our hearts, Lord!
