I began this blog over a year and a half ago with the desire to provide an online forum for prayer requests to be posted and for inspirational articles and comments on prayer to be offered. I'm not sure how many people read this blog (it may be very few), but I remain committed to updating it often. If you would like to contribute to the offerings posted here, or if you have a prayer request you would like to see posted here, please contact me at jeffrfoster@gmail.com.

You're the God of this city
You're the King of these people
You're the Lord of this nation
You are

You're the light in this darkness
You're the hope to the hopeless
You're the peace to the restless
You are

There is no one like our God
There is no one like our God

For greater things are yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this city
For greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done here

We believe, we believe in You, God

The prayer of Moses (Psalm 90.1-2 NKJV):

Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

Empty hands held high
Such small sacrifice
If not joined with my life
I sing in vain tonight

May the words I say
And the things I do
Make my lifesong sing
Bring a smile to You

Let my lifesong sing to You
Let my lifesong sing to You
I want to sign Your name to the end of this day
Knowing that my heart was true
Let my lifesong sing to You

Lord, I give my life
A living sacrifice
To reach a world in need
To be Your hands and feet

So may the words I say
And the things I do
Make my lifesong sing
Bring a smile to You

Let my lifesong sing to You

The prayer of Psalm 145 (Holman CSB)

I exalt You, my God the King,
and praise Your name forever and ever.
I will praise You every day;
I will honor You name forever and ever.

Yahweh is great and is highly praised;
His greatness is unsearchable.
One generation will declare Your works to the next
and will proclaim Your mighty acts.
I will speak of Your glorious splendor
and Your wonderful works.
They will proclaim the power of Your awe-inspiring works,
and I will declare Your greatness.
They will give a testimony of Your great goodness
and will joyfully sing of Your righteousness.

The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and great in faithful love.
The Lord is good to everyone;
His compassion rests on all He has made.
All You have made will praise You, Lord;
the godly will bless You.
The will speak of the glory of Your kingdom
and will declare Your might,
informing all people of Your mighty acts
and of the glorious splendor of Your kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom;
Your rule is for all generations.
The Lord is faithful in all His words
and gracious in all His actions.

The Lord helps all who fall;
He raises up all who are oppressed.
All eyes look to You,
and You give them their food in due time.
You open Your hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all His ways
and gracious in all His acts.
The Lord is near all who call out to Him,
all who call out to Him with integrity.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him;
He hears their cry for help and saves them.
The Lord guards all those who love Him,
but He destroys all the wicked.
My mouth will declare the Lord's praise;
let every living thing praise His holy name
forever and ever.

I will thank the Lord with all my heart;
I will declare all Your wonderful works.
I will rejoice and boast about You;
I will sing about Your name, Most High.

(Psalm 9.1-2 CSB)
