I heard Living Prayer (words and music by Ron Block) at the funeral for our dear friend, Sarah. The recording by Alison Krauss lifted my spirits as I listened and watched a slide show of Sarah with her beloved family in her stronger, happier days. Enter Lauren, a gifted musician. Sunday – her first time sharing her gifts solo at St. Augustine’s – she played the guitar and sang this glorious song of glory to God. You’ll find the words below..and the link to St. Augustine’s YouTube channel so you can hear Lauren. God touches our lives in more ways that we know or can imagine. Thankfully, music is one of His greatest gifts to us. Take my life and let it be a living prayer, my God to thee. DTM Living Prayer Words and Music by Ron Block In this world I walk alone with no place to call my home But there’s one who holds my hand The rugged road through barren lands The way is dark, the road is steep But He’s become my eyes to see The strength to climb, my griefs to bear The Savior lives inside me there In your love I find release A haven from my unbelief Take my life and let me be A living prayer my God to thee In these trials of life I find Another voice inside my mind He comforts me and bids me live Inside the love the Father gives In your love I find release A haven from my unbelief Take my life and let me be A living prayer my God to thee take my life and let me be A living prayer my God to thee.
