Day 2: Engaging Prayer

By Name

“I Surrender” by Hillsong Worship
Here I am, down on my knees again,
Surrendering all.
Find me here, Lord, as you draw me near -
I’m desperate for you.

I surrender...

Music inspires me so much, and I often incorporate worship music into my quiet times. So I thought it would be enriching to reference a few songs over the next few weeks, as a way of sharing that same sense of inspiration with others.

I especially love songs that speak to God directly, addressing Him as if we’re standing face-to-face and prompting me to tell Him how I feel. How I feel about His character and about the victories He’s won in my life, as well as the ways He’s shown up in the lives of my friends and family members.

I love to address Him by name, not because He needs it, but because I do. I need to be reminded of the fact that He has drawn me near, and not the other way around. I need to be caught up in His arms and infused with His heavenly aroma. I need to be trained in His heavenly ways, so I’m ready to walk beside Him every day, moving to the rhythm of His beat.

"Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy...”
[Matt. 6:9, NLT]
