When You Close Your Eyes in Prayer

A home recording of this song is available here.

What do you say when you close your eyes in prayer?
What do you tell God when you call upon His name?
Do you say, “I love You, Lord, for being who you are”?
What do you say when you close your eyes in prayer?

What do you say when God knows just who you are?
What do you tell Him when He sees inside your heart?
Do you say, “I’ve done wrong, Lord, and I want to do right”?
What do you say when God knows just who you are?

What do you say when God knows the words you’ll use?
What do you tell Him? He already knows your needs.
Do you say, “I thank You, Lord, for all you do for me”?
What do you say when God knows the words you’ll use?

What do you say when your thoughts distract your prayers?
What do you tell God when the words refuse to come?
Do you cry, “I need help, Lord. I can’t live on my own!”?
What do you say when your thoughts distract your prayers?

About this song:

Years ago I was introduced to the concept of ACTS, an acronym that represents the four elements of prayer:

  • Adoration: praising God for who He is (and not for what He’s done for us)
  • Confession: admitting our sins to God and asking His forgiveness
  • Thanksgiving: thanking God for His many perfect gifts
  • Supplication: asking God’s help for ourselves and other people as well

Maybe I’m wrong, but I think many Christians concentrate on asking for God’s help and for the things we want rather than necessarily what we need. At times, we’re all probably guilty of that.

In my prayers, I try to focus on adoration. The very fact that God is not only somewhere “out there” but lives inside us listening to us is worthy of adoration–and praise.

I strongly believe that if we were to spend more of our prayer time thanking God for His “every good and perfect gift,” we wouldn’t have time to pray selfishly.

I wrote this song in 1990, basing it loosely on the ACTS principle. It’s very slow and prayerful and–I hope–thought-provoking. You may download the free lead sheet here.

One really nifty thing resulted from this song. Jeff Ferrier, who was the pianist in the Gospel Chickenhouse house band and an amazing musician, took a recording of me singing “When You Close Your Eyes in Prayer” with guitar accompaniment and wrote a beautiful two-voice arrangement with piano accompaniment.

About This Song:
In the early 2000s I went on a two-week mission trip to Jibou, Romania. The folks at the Baptist church there were so nice.

As we went around to minister at other churches in that vicinity, I learned that the Jibou church had planted most–if not all–of the other churches. That’s what I call spreading the Word.

At the end of our trip, I recall sitting in the back of the van as we drove to Budapest, Hungary (nearest airport). I was thinking about how evangelistic the members of the Jibou church were, and the idea for this song started to form.

I’d like to believe that singing this song and sharing it on this blog are two ways to share the truths of the Gospel with my family and friends, my neighbors, and everyone I encounter.

This is a good song to teach other people to sing, and you can add verses almost endlessly.

Eternal Life

NOTE: You may listen to this song HERE.

God loved the world so much
That He gave His only Son,
So everyone who believes in Him will not die,
But have eternal life.

Christ lived a sinless life;
Yet He died a sinner’s death.
His Father reached into the tomb
And brought Him outside alive again.

I know Christ Jesus lives;
He’s given me new life:
A life of hope and joy and peace
And the promise of eternal life with Him.

God loved the world so much
That He gave His only Son.
Won’t you believe Jesus live and died and rose again
To give you eternal life?
Won’t you believe Jesus live and died and rose again
To give you eternal life?

About This Song:


16 
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
(NKJV)

The official Easter season may be several weeks behind us now, but for Christians the Easter season lasts all year long.

One of the first songs I ever wrote was John 3:16-17. Then a couple of years ago I felt led to write this one, which focuses only on John 3:16. Musically, it’s pretty simple, but it turned out to be more thought-provoking than I’d originally thought.

I’d never expected it to have four different emphases,. The first stanza refers to John 3:16. The second is the Easter story in a very small nutshell. The third is what I consider my own personal testimony about what being a Christian means. And the fourth is an invitation to non-believers to consider the truth about Jesus and become believers, too.

Any comments? I’d love to hear them.

Not My Will, But Yours, Lord

NOTE: You may listen to it HERE.

I don’t always pray, Lord,
I don’t always pray
Till I find the door closed.
Then I cry to You.
Help me pray like Jesus
In Gethsemane.
Not my will, but Yours, Lord,
Not my will, but Yours.

Sometimes when I pray, Lord,
Sometimes when I pray,
I want things I shouldn’t have
And You answer, “No.”
Help me pray like Jesus
In Gethsemane.
Not my will, but Yours, Lord,
Not my will, but Yours.

Often when I pray, Lord,
Often when I pray,
I seek quick solutions,
But you tell me, “Wait.”
Help me pray like Jesus
In Gethsemane.
Not my will, but Yours, Lord,
Not my will, but Yours.

I don’t always pray, Lord,
I don’t always pray
Till I find the door closed.
Then I cry to You.
Help me pray like Jesus
In Gethsemane.
Not my will, but Yours, Lord,
Not my will, but Yours.

Lead, I’ll follow You, Lord,
Lead, I’ll follow You.
I can’t see in darkness,
But the dark is light to You.
Help me pray like Jesus
In Gethsemane.
Not my will, but Yours, Lord,
Not my will, but Yours.

 

About This Song

Best Small Trans Headshot lightened
Some years back my wife was telling me about Jan Karon’s Mitford novels, and she mentioned that Father Tim always said that “Not my will, but Yours” was one prayer God would always answer. That idea stuck in both my head and my spirit.

 

You probably recall the biblical account of Jesus going to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray and taking His disciples with Him. But not even His closest friends could stay awake while He agonized about the unspeakable physical, emotional, and spiritual torture he knew he was going to endure during the next twenty-four hours.

The human part of Jesus wanted to be spared that suffering–who could blame him?–but the divine part of Him knew how important following and obeying His Heavenly Father’s will was. If He didn’t die, the sin that had been part of the human condition from the time of Adam and Eve on would still go on without being forgiven.

And if He didn’t die He couldn’t be raised from the dead to conquer death and provide eternal life in Heaven for all who believe in Him.

So Jesus spoke those simple but unforgettable words as the climax of His prayer, knowing that God His Heavenly Father would answer it, “Not my will, but Yours.”

That’s how we need to pray, too. Wouldn’t you agree?

As Jesus Loves

Who is blind, one who cannot see,
Yet seeks to care for those in need?
Or one who claims to see,
But never looks beyond himself?

Who is deaf, one who cannot hear,
Yet heeds the cries of those in pain?
Or one who claims to hear,
But listens only to himself?

Who is lame, one who cannot walk,
Yet takes the hands of those who’re lost?
Or one who claims to walk,
But never goes outside himself?

Refrain:
How blind are those who will not see
The needs that Jesus sees!
How deaf are those who will not hear
The cries that Jesus hears!
How lame are those who will not take
The hands that Jesus takes!
But how blessed are those
Who love as Jesus loves.

About this Song:

The three stanzas are quiet and reflective. The refrain comes only at the end, and it’s much livelier.

And here’s a secret about how I kept the stanzas straight while memorizing this song. The three conditions–blindness, deafness, and lameness–come in alphabetical order. To keep the lines straight within each stanza, each second line has a word that begins with the same letter as the condition mentioned in the line before: see, seeks; hear, heeds; lame, lost. And the supposedly sighted person fails to look “beyond himself” while the person supposedly able to get around fails to go “outside himself”–another intentional alphabetical choice.

Not accidents, I can assure you. I’m too well aware of the limitations of my memory.

I’m aware of my other limitations, too.

Joyce Richards, my former mother-in-law, suffered for years with what was first diagnosed as ALS: Lou Gehrig’s disease. When her condition quit deteriorating–and she continued to live–the doctors said maybe this was the slow-developing kind.

But they really didn’t know.

Even though they had ruled out other degenerative diseases, they still couldn’t be sure. She ended up having to use a motorized chair and a specially equipped van, but she didn’t act like a handicapped person. At least not during the time she was part of my life.

She was a giving and caring person–and she didn’t hide her faith, not even from her favorite Jewish physician.

I’m not sure what sparked this song, but I’ll always think of it as Joyce Richards’ song. For she was physically lame, yet always taking the hands of those around her in the most giving and unselfish ways.

Yet how many Christians think of themselves as righteous–while failing to see or respond to the needs of others; while failing to hear and answer the cries of others; while failing to reach out and assist those who need their help?

I’m guilty–too often–of failing to “love as Jesus loves.” I may care enough to pray, and that’s important. I may cry over the needs of others, and that’s good.

But how often am I willing to get a little dirt on me through hands-on assistance? Not often enough.

So whenever I sing this song, I’m preaching to myself. But I’m also setting up a goal: to gain the blessing that comes from loving as Jesus loves.

Your comments are always welcome.

Sometimes I Wonder

Sometimes I wonder why the righteous suffer,
And I make a mental note to ask God by and by.
But when I get to Heaven and meet Him face to face,
I know I will forget to ask, for Heaven is a perfect place-
With no memories of earthly pain.

Sometimes I wonder why the wicked prosper,
And I make a mental note to ask God by and by.
But when I get to Heaven and meet Him face to face,
I know I will forget to ask, for Heaven is a perfect place-
With no memories of earthly wrongs.

Sometimes I wonder why disasters happen,
And I make a mental note to ask God by and by.
But when I get to Heaven and meet Him face to face,
I know I will forget to ask, for Heaven is a perfect place-
With no memories of earthly woes,
And no memory of earthly wrongs,
And no memory of earthly pain,
And no memory of earth at all.

About this Song:

Do you ever wonder why a loving God would allow people to suffer–especially good people? Or why a righteous God would permit the worst of people to live the happiest and most prosperous lives? Or why God the Creator doesn’t use His powers to prevent  earthquakes and tsunamis from wiping out thousands of people at a time?

People have been asking those questions for thousands of years. As Christians, we should be able to explain that God gave mankind free will because He wanted us to love Him voluntarily. Making us robots would have prevented us from being able to do that. But with free will came sin, and the effects of sin have been with us ever since.

I believe that with all my heart. But I also believe God loved us so much that–even before we were conceived–He planned a way out for us: Salvation  through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. He promised us eternal life in Heaven, yes, but also strength and guidance for living the most meaningful life on earth.

But the “most meaningful life” isn’t one that’s free from pain and suffering. We are still subject to the problems brought on mankind’s sin–not just Adam and Eve’s original sin, but sin throughout the ages. So let’s not forget that God’s forgiveness doesn’t prevent us from suffering the consequences of our own mistakes–and our own sins.

Our problems sometimes aren’t even caused by our own sins, though, but by the sins of other people. Like accidents caused by drunken drivers, for example.

But does knowing and believing those things keep us from wanting to ask God why? Don’t we still want to find an answer that makes it all seem more logical–and more acceptable?

If you’re like me, you’re probably saving up a number of similar questions to ask God when you get to Heaven. I doubt we’ll get the answers there, though, because–if Heaven is truly as perfect as the Bible says–we’ll forget all the questions we have about the bad things that happen on earth.

My theory–my understanding, anyhow–is that we won’t even remember our earthly lives. And we won’t care, because eternal life in our Heavenly Father’s presence is so much better. What a wonderful thing to look forward to!

Do you truly believe that, too? How about leaving a comment to share that fact with the rest of us.

I’m a Work in Progress

You may listen to today’s song here…

I’m a work in progress;
God’s not finished with me yet.
He’ll keep growing me more Christlike
Until He calls me home.
He’ll make my salt saltier
And He’ll brighten my fading light.
I’m a work in progress;
God’s not finished with me yet.

He knows all of my limitations,
But He knows my potential, too.
I pray for Him to keep on growing me
Into more of who He wants me to be.

I’m a work in progress;
My life is in God’s hands.
He’ll help me to be more loving
And more forgiving, too.
He’ll give me new ways to serve Him
And the strength to do my best.
I’m a work in progress;
God’s not finished with me yet.

He knows all of my limitations,
But He knows my potential, too.
I pray for Him to keep on growing me
Into more of who He wants me to be.
I’m work in progress;
He’s not finished with me yet.

About this Song:


A number of my songs have been written when dealing with various issues in my own life or the lives of friends and family members. But “I’m a Work in Progress” is probably the most personal of my two hundred-plus songs.

It’s also one of the newest. I wrote the stanzas in early December of 2020 but didn’t add the refrain until early this month.

At seventy-four I can’t keep from looking back at my life. I can see sins I’ve allowed God to help me almost forget about and I can see opportunities missed. Then I look at myself now and wonder what I would be like if I’d been one of God’s more obedient children. Surely He could have used me in ways I can’t even imagine now.

I recall a man who belonged to the same church I belonged to. He faithfully taught Sunday school and sang in the choir. Until he retired, that is. Then he retired from all of his church duties as well.

I was determined not to be like him when I got older. Nonetheless, I’m not only all too conscious of my lifelong limitations, I can’t keep from dwelling on the way age appears to be dulling my ability to do things I used to think I was reasonably good at. But not only did I not want to retire from serving God, my desire to serve Him is growing stronger.

Not to try to pay Him back for everything He’s done for me; I can’t do that and no one else can, either. I want to thank Him by being more obedient and to please Him in ways I’ve never pleased Him before.

I keep praying to be more loving and more forgiving; those are Christian characteristics I can’t attain on my own. Only when I allow God’s Holy Spirit to have more complete control of my life can I become more of the kind of person I believe God wants me to be.

I’m more conscious than ever before that “becoming” that person is an ongoing process. Growing more Christlike isn’t something I can “retire from” at a certain age.

So this very personal song isn’t just a reminder that God hasn’t discarded me to the junk pile as useless, but a way to praise Him for continuing to use me in ways that are pleasing to Him. And to inspire others who may be feeling useless.

Let God Drive

I have the best intentions;
I long to do all that pleases God
And yet I fail to do what I mean
And do what I mean not to do.

refrain
It’s time to jump into the back seat and let God drive,
It’s time to jump into the back seat and let God drive,
It’s time to jump into the back seat and let God drive,
For He alone knows where I’m really going.

If backed into a corner,
I may admit that I have done wrong,
And yet I tell God what He should do
To make things work out right for me.
(refrain)

It’s hard to want what God wants;
Even Christ Himself didn’t like to suffer,
But He cried, “Not my will, but Yours.”
Lord, help me to pray that prayer, too.
(refrain)

About this Song:

If these words remind you of several vastly different Scripture passages, you’re on the same page I am.

In Romans 7:19-20, the apostle Paul says, “For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do–this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.” That’s from the NIV translation.

Here’s the same thing from the Easy-to-Read translation: “I don’t do the good that I want to do. I do the evil that I don’t want to do. So if I do what I don’t want to do, then I am not really the one doing it. It is the sin living in me that does it.”

No matter which translation you prefer, Christians can relate too easily to what Paul is saying. Just because we’re saved doesn’t mean we’ve lost our sinful nature. We truly don’t want to sin, yet we still do. We won’t get rid of that sinful nature until we die.

But with God’s help, we can keep it under control–under better control, that is. The closer our walk with Him–the more willing we are to put Him in the driver’s seat of our lives–the more we’re able to do the good we want to do and avoid doing the bad we don’t want to do.

The other passage referred to here is Matthew 26:39 & 42. Jesus is praying in the Garden of Gethsemane the night before His crucifixion. He would have much preferred to avoid the physical, emotional, and spiritual suffering he faced the next day. He said, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.” (That is, may I be spared from the coming agony?)

In verse 42, He prayed a second time. “My father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it. . .”

Ah, but I’ve purposely omitted the most important words in both verses: “Yet not as I will, but as You will” in verse 39 and “May Your will be done” in verse 42.

As today’s lyrics suggest, Jesus was acknowledging that He wanted God the Father to be in the driver’s seat–regardless of Jesus’s personal feelings.

Because Jesus was both God and man, He was born with a sin nature–just like you and me. But He did what the apostle Paul was never able to do: He stayed in such close contact with God the Father that He never let his sin nature take control. Not once. Jesus never sinned.

You and I will never stop sinning. But the closer we get to God–the more we put Him in charge of our lives–the less sinning we’ll do.

If you’re not a Christian, you probably still have problems making yourself do what’s right sometimes and doing what you know is wrong at other times. You’d be amazed how God’s presence in your life can affect your intentions and your ability to carry through with them.

You Alone, O Lord

You Alone, O Lord

You alone, O Lord, are my rock and my refuge;
You alone, O Lord, can shelter me beneath Your wings.
You alone, O Lord, can stretch Your hands to protect me,
And make all my foes cringe before Your feet.

You alone, O Lord, are my shield and defender;
You alone, O Lord, can break the power of evil men.
You alone, O Lord, can put an end to their terror
And punish them for all their wicked ways.

When I lie down, I sleep in peace,
For in You alone I am secure, O Lord.
In You alone I am secure.

You alone, O Lord, are my shield and defender;
You alone, O Lord, can break the power of evil men.
You alone, O Lord, can put an end to their terror
And punish them for all their wicked ways.

About this song:
In January of 1991, the United States–the whole free world, actually–was on pins and needles waiting to see whether Iraq would respond to demands to withdraw from its forceful occupation of Kuwait. The United Nations had set January 15th as the deadline for Iraq to comply.

I’m sure I wasn’t the only person wondering and perhaps worrying about the possibility of our becoming involved in war in the Middle East.

But rather than continue to worry, I sat down in the living room with my Bible and started searching the Psalms for verses of reassurance. I came up with a number of them, but these were the most meaningful:

I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8)

He is a shield to all who take refuge in him. (Psalm 18:30b)

Break the arm of the wicked and evil man; call him to account for his wickedness that would not be found out. (Psalm 30:15)

You defend orphans and everyone else in need, so that no one on earth can terrify others again. (Psalm 30:18)

The next day, Operation Desert Storm began.

Even though Desert Storm has long since passed, terrorism–or at least the threat of it–seems to be a constant in modern life. And multiple threats to America from within have brought a new level of unrest.

But God’s power and love and protection are still our only real source of hope. That realization brings the kind of peace nothing else can bring.

I hope you find that kind of peace under God’s wing as well. How about leaving a comment?

Days, Hours, Moments

I could spend my days
Just singing songs of praise
Unto the Lord who’s set me free.
I could spend each hour
Just singing of His power
And of the love that’s lifted me.
I could spend each moment
Singing of my atonement
And the hope Christ Jesus brings.
I could spend my time
Making songs in rhyme
For the Lord of whom I sing.

About this song:

I’m not sure what inspired this song originally, but it turned out to be an exercise in rhyming. You’ll notice that the ending words of each pair of sentences rhyme: “free” and “me”; “brings” and “sing”.

But there are also internal rhymes within each sentence: “days” and “praise”; “hour” and “power”; “moment” and “atonement”; and “time” and “rhyme”.

So the reference to “making songs in rhyme” is actually about writing this song.

The line about “And of the love that’s lifted me” should bring back memories of the old hymn, “Love Lifted Me.”

Believe it or not, I really struggled with the atonement line. Should it be “my atonement” because I’m talking about God making me “at one” with Him? Or should it be “His atonement” because He’s the one who’s done it? I’m still not totally sure, but feel free to change it. I don’t think God will punish either of us for making the wrong choice.

I purposely started with the longest period of time–days–and then worked my way down to the shorter time spans, days and then moments.

To listen to this sing, go here, scroll down to the drop down box of songs recorded on the Yamaha, and select “Days, Hours, Moments.” A free lead sheet is available here.

As always, comments are welcome.
