Happy Birthday, Linda (‘Praise the Lord’)

Our friend Linda Sorci is having a birthday today, and she’s asked us to play this worship song by Chris Christian, Praise the Lord. So here it is!

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.   –Psalm 22:3

By Request, ‘That’s Why My Heart Is Filled With Praise’

This is for Phoebe–That’s Why My Heart is Filled with Praise, sung by Christ Church Pentacostal.

How to Request a Hymn: Nothing could be easier. Just post your request as a comment anywhere on this blog, under any existing post. I’ll see it, and I’ll do the rest. All you gotta do is ask.

By Request, ‘Rise and Be Healed in the Name of Jesus’

Requested by Erlene, Rise and Be Healed in the Name of Jesus–and there are any number of us who need that prayer, just now.

Jesus Lord, our rightful King of Kings, our Savior and our Shepherd–be not far from us today. Amen.

By Request: ‘Majesty’

Erlene and her fellow worshipers sang this at her church yesterday–Majesty. One of the commenters on the youtube page said he thought this song could use a few cannons.

Remember, everybody–especially if you’re getting tired of my own selection of hymns–you can always request a hymn to be posted on this blog. It’s one of the things we’re in business for, and probably better for you than the news.

By Request, ‘Have Thine Own Way, Lord’

Erlene says our prayers are already working for her, which we’re all very glad to hear, and has requested this hymn, Have Thine Own Way, Lord, sung by Jim Reeves. And we’re very glad to post it.

Remember, everybody, especially if you’re new to this blog–we take both hymn requests and prayer requests, and happy to do it.

Bonus Hymn: ‘In His Time’

Thanks to Erlene for suggesting this: In His Time. I don’t know who sings it, but whoever selected the photos deserves a round of applause.

Why butterflies and flowers? Like Mr. Nature says, it’s God’s stuff, it always works, it’s good for us–and it’s God’s way of letting us know He’s never farther than a prayer away. And sometimes even closer than that.

The Hymn I Crave This Morning

Yes, I know I’ve posted this one several times throughout the past year–Behold the Mountain of the Lord, sung by Geoffrey Birtill. But then the invitation remains open to each and everyone one of you to have any hymn posted that you might request.

It’s only 10:00 in the morning and the news has already worn me out. But never mind! Head down, keep climbing, ask the Lord for strength.

And sing louder! Sing louder.

By Request, ‘Abide With Me’

All right, Patty, here’s the hymn you asked for: Abide With Me, a classic from 1847, here sung by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Wonderful choice of supporting photos, too.

By Request, ‘How Deep the Father’s Love For Us’

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the children of God… 1 John 3:1

Requested by Susan: How Deep the Father’s Love for Us, written by Stuart Townend, performed by Worship Mob. “His wounds have paid my ransom”: think about that. Everybody think about that.


By Request, ‘Sometimes Alleluia

Our sister Linda Sorci has requested this hymn–Sometimes Alleluia, sung by Chuck Girard–and along with it, let’s keep praying for her: because Our Lord Jesus Christ at various times taught us to be persistent in our prayers, and because Linda and her husband Michael need our prayers right now.

O Lord Our God, deliver your servants out of trouble! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
