Do it Lord!

I love this song By Tommy Walker
Do It Lord!

I see Your glory covering the earth, Lord Just as the waters are covering the sea. I see the millions coming to salvation. I see revival fire in the land.
I see the lost and nameless ones remembered. I see the widows shouting out your praise. I see the friendless loved and celebrated. Orphans fulfilling, Lord, Your calling on their lives.

Do it Lord, do it Lord,
Do it Lord we are praying,
Do it Lord, do it that your glory may be seen.
This song reminds me that we can pray for the things that are important to us and to the heart of God.
Years ago a dear friend of mine was battling cancer. I will always remember my tear filled fervent prayers. "Lord heal her, remove the tumors, give her more time to be with her children. Do it Lord." 
For a season those prayers were answered. She had more time with her children and the experimental medication was shrinking the tumors. I will always remember when she called to tell me that this horrific disease had returned and that this time there was little hope of more time.  

Suddenly the focus of prayers changed from giving this young mother more time, to "please give her sweet memory filled times with her children." From "heal her body, to Lord, make her whole in heaven. Do it Lord!"

Just because we pray doesn't mean that God will answer yes! But that doesn't mean we can not ask. I have full confidence that God wants me to come to Him, to tell him what is on my heart. Some people are afraid to ask God, to request that God move in a situation.  I would rather ask and have him tell me no or not yet, than never have asked at all. 

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.  I John 5:14-15

I love that this verse says "He hears us". Even if His plans are different than mine, I can trust that he has heard my heart and knows what is best.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

When we are thankful that God is at work, that he has heard us, that he has gone before us, we can ask and offer our request with full confidence that He is listening. This is what brings us peace. Do it Lord!

If I was rewriting this song, I would ask that; 

The hungry would be satisfied
 Orphans would have families
Cancer would be wiped out
Children wouldn't die
God's Glory would be seen
Jesus would return
Do it Lord!

Whatever your prayer is, ask God with confidence that He hears you!

Father, this is our prayer oh God. This is our desperate cry.
In these days that we’re living now. Let Your kingdom come let your will be done.
