#thirstythursday / a prayer; tell your heart to beat again

thirsty thursday banner the daily Starr

Today is the National Day of Prayer – a time when many focus on praying for our nation, our leaders, our churches, our people.

Tonight, my mind is thinking about those in a place where all we see are the difficulties staring directly in front of us.

Maybe you’re wondering how you can make it through the pain of another day.
Or longing for something or someone that is gone – or yet to come in your life.
The worries, the stress, the struggle.
It can be soooo much to handle at times in life.

No matter where you are – this prayer is for you, tonight.

You’re shattered
Like you’ve never been before
The life you knew
In a thousand pieces on the floor
And words fall short in times like these
When this world drives you to your knees
You think you’re never gonna get back
To the you that used to be

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday’s a closing door
You don’t live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you’ve been
And tell your heart to beat again

Beginning
Just let that word wash over you
It’s alright now
Love’s healing hands have pulled you through
So get back up, take step one
Leave the darkness, feel the sun
Cause your story’s far from over
And your journey’s just begun

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday’s a closing door
You don’t live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you’ve been
And tell your heart to beat again

Let every heartbreak
And every scar
Be a picture that reminds you
Who has carried you this far
‘Cause love sees farther than you ever could
In this moment heaven’s working
Everything for your good

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday’s a closing door
You don’t live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you’ve been
And tell your heart to beat again
Your heart to beat again
Beat again

Oh, so tell your heart to beat again

-Danny Gokey, Tell Your Heart to Beat Again

These words ring so powerful in my mind.

Yes.

Do you ever wonder if your prayers matter or if God even hears them?

I heard this verse mentioned on the radio today and it became an instant reminder that our prayers have POWER:

Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. – James 5:16

Listen to this story from Danny about his song lyrics above.

  1. I LOVE this song. I was listening earlier to this song and it is so powerful. Also, one on our choir CD (#1) can’t remember the name of it, but God make a broken story and move us to new places in His time, we just have to let Him. Pray for one another. Cry with another. Love one another. Share with one another. Not judge one another, we all have a story, broken and hurting that God has made new!!!
