Good Ole Southern Gospel

Last Wednesday night our church had The Whisnants, one of Southern gospels best groups, come and sing for our camp meeting. It was so uplifting and just turned out to be an amazing night.

They sang a song titled "I'll Pray for You" that was exactly what I needed to hear. I have copied the lyrics for you below.

v1.I saw an old friend at the market, standing in the checkout line, she began to share her story, then I told her mine, it was clear we both knew heartache so before I turned to go, we made a simple promise, that would lighten both our loads

Chorus:I’ll pray for you, you pray for me, and together we’ll touch heaven from our knees, anything can happen in His name when we agree, I’ll pray for you, you pray for me

v2.What a privilege and an honor to know that God is there, and to have His full attention, any time and any where, sometimes when we’re talking, conversation turns to you, as your name and needs are mentioned, God lifts my spirit too

Aren't those words just beautiful? I feel like I am always praying for myself and my own needs. God will bless us because we pray for others.

That is beautiful...and a great reminder to pray for others, and ask that all those praying for me are blessed!!

Very Beautiful. Very true. It is so easy to think of my own needs as I pray when there are so many others who need prayer and support. It's so nice to see lyrics like that! We so serve an AMAZING GOD!!
