Let Your Presence Come

Feb 6, 2015 | Audio-Visual Presentations

Some years ago at one of our recording events at the House of the Open Door, I woke with a snatch of music running in my head. I scribbled the music down over breakfast, and invited a talented violinist from the community to play the lead violin part. We pray it will really bless you, with the words leading you deep into prayer for people and places that are especially in need of the Lord’s power and presence.

Do listen more than once and let the Spirit of prayer come on you as you do so!

Let Your presence come O Lord
Your life, Your love, Your strength
Shining light into the darkest parts,
Turning doubts into faith and trouble into blessing.

Let no weariness of mind or body diminish my desire to go the extra mile.
Let me sense Your holy smile
drawing me on to the blessings You foresaw
away from the things that beguile.

Deep in the silence I receive Your presence now,
Unweave the bitter roots that defile
Endow my cluttered heart with poise and grace.

Now let Your power and presence come,
Your life, Your love, Your strength
Shining light into even the darkest places that we bring you now.

Here is the music alone as inspiration for your prayers.

    The music ‘Let your Presence Come’ is beautiful. I’d like to be able to listen and just have the words to read and meditate on. Is it possible to just have the music?
