Prayer Meeting Passages & Song Lyrics – 12/13

Matthew 2:1-5
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”
3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.
When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. 5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied…

James 4:6–10
6 That is why Scripture says:
“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.

Matthew 5:3–5
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

O Little Town of Bethlehem

O little town of Bethlehem how still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep
and dreamless sleep
the silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears
of all the years
are met in thee tonight.

For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above,
While mortals sleep,
the angels keep
their watch of wondering love.
O morning stars together, proclaim the holy birth,
And praises sing
to God the King,
and peace to men on earth!

How silently, how silently, the wondrous Gift is giv’n;
So God imparts
to human hearts
the blessings of His heav’n.
No ear may hear His coming, but in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will
receive Him still,
the dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin,
and enter in,
be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels the great glad tidings tell;
O come to us,
abide with us,
our Lord Emmanuel!

Just the Time

Just the time I think I’m at peace with the world that’s mine,
I feel at ease, I feel at home, and I know I’m not alone.
Then in my rest, there comes a test that shakes me ’til again I know
That what I had is not enough, and again I’ve got to grow.

Lord, I want to know You more
Deep within my heart I want to know You
Oh, I want to know You.
And I would give my final breath

To know You in Your death and resurrection,
Lord, I want to know You more,
Lord, I want to know You more.

The full supply I find as I move closer to the heart of God,
To strengthen me, to nourish me, and to fill my mind with Him.
I’ve truly grown, but even so my hunger hasn’t gone away
Still I long, still I thirst, to know Him more each day.

Surrender

I’m giving you my heart, and all that is within
I lay it all down for the sake of you my King
I’m giving you my dreams, I’m laying down my rights
I’m giving up my pride for the promise of new life

And I surrender all to you, all to you
And I surrender all to you, all to you

I’m singing You this song, I’m waiting at the cross
And all the world holds dear, I count it all as loss
For the sake of knowing You for the glory of Your name
To know the lasting joy, even sharing in Your pain

Jesus, All for Jesus

Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.
Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.

All of my ambitions, hopes and plans
I surrender these into Your hands.
All of my ambitions, hopes and plans
I surrender these into Your hands.

For it’s only in Your will that I am free,
For it’s only in Your will that I am free,
Jesus, all for Jesus,
All I am and have and ever hope to be.
