Prayer to God

Prayers to God from Joel 2:1-17

Blow the trumpet in Zion;
call a solemn assembly;
   gather the people.
Sanctify the congregation;
   assemble the aged;
gather the children,
   even infants

For when people gather in my name I am with them
When forgiveness spring forth I am there
When people see my glory they repent
They become my children
Of them I am proud of them 

Blow the trumpet in Zion;
   sound the alarm on my holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
   for the day of the Lord is coming, it is near—
a day of darkness and gloom,
   a day of clouds and thick darkness!
Like blackness spread upon the mountains

He has descend his holy mountain to reach his people
The Lord our God had walked the mortal life to reach us
He ascended Calvary’s hill to save us
He suffered upon the cross to show us real forgiveness
He died and rose again to call his children home
The son of man did all this so heaven and earth will shine forth his glory

Yet even now, says the Lord,
   return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
   rend your hearts and not your clothing.
Return to the Lord, your God,
   for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love.

If they only we loved one another
If they we’d listen to Gods word
If only we’d gladly accept His holy sprit
If only we had eye to see and ear to hear

Between the vestibule and the altar
   let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep.
Let them say, ‘Spare your people, O Lord,

For God is our refuge of old
He is are hope and security
Upon him build your life
For his forgiveness is eternal
He will never forsake us
He will never abandon us
God will never forget to forgive  

He is our salvation
