Blessed hour of prayer

Today I share with you a post written by a young lady whose blog I follow. You might want to follow it too. It's such an encouraging blog with a spark of humor in it as well! http://elaneesendeavors.blogspot.com/ .

So here is the post I hope you enjoy it.

 " Here's a encouraging song I heard on Sermon Audio the other day. I hope you are blessed by the uplifting words.

All too often I forget how important it is to bring everything to God in prayer.

Recently I have begun a prayer journal by keeping a record of answered prayers. It is amazing to see how much God cares for us in the simple things of life.

One such answer to prayer, was the time when I said to God how nice it would be to see the hands of my friend who was playing piano at a concert I was attending. I was in the third row, but the people in front of me were obstructing my view of the pianists hands. My friend was the last pianist of four to play, and at the intermission, after taking a break to stretch and fellowship with others, I rushed back to my seat just as the second half of the program began.

As I took my seat and looked up to see the piano, I was amazed to see that the people in front of me had moved over making a wide passageway for me to clearly see the pianist's hands. I lifted up a silent grateful prayer to God at that moment, and realized again how much He cares for us and answers our prayers even when we least expect it. How truly blessed is the hour of humble prayer."

Blessed Hour of Prayer


By Fanny Crosby.


’Tis the blessèd hour of prayer, when our hearts lowly bend,

And we gather to Jesus, our Savior and Friend;
If we come to Him in faith, His protection to share,
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

Blessèd hour of prayer, blessèd hour of prayer,

What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

’Tis the blessèd hour of prayer, when the Savior draws near,

With a tender compassion His children to hear;
When He tells us we may cast at His feet every care,
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

Blessèd hour of prayer, blessèd hour of prayer,

What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

’Tis the blessèd hour of prayer, when the tempted and tried

To the Savior Who loves them their sorrow confide;
With a sympathizing heart He removes every care;
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

Blessèd hour of prayer, blessèd hour of prayer,

What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!

At the blessèd hour of prayer, trusting Him, we believe

That the blessing we’re needing we’ll surely receive;
In the fullness of the trust we shall lose every care;
What a balm for the weary, O how sweet to be there!




Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee

Here is a beautiful piece very well played. Beethoven's Ninth symphony "Ode to Joy" which I first knew as the hymn, "Joyful Joyful we Adore Thee". This orchestra plays it beautifully; notice that there is no music any where, not a microphone in sight, and no instrument cases clutter the ground. The timing of the musicians entering was also very well done. Over all, it is much better than most flash mob attractions that people organize. When Beethoven composed this symphony, he was almost completely deaf. At its first performance, Beethoven could not conduct, because he was deaf, but sat to the side furiously beating time to the music which he could not hear. He was a few measures off when the piece was done and one of his friends had to walk over and turn him around so that he could see the crowd wildly applauding. The whole audience acclaimed him through standing ovations five times; there were handkerchiefs in the air, hats and raised hands, so that Beethoven, who could not hear the applause, could at least see the ovation gestures. The fact that he did write this when nearly deaf, is amazing. It is also interesting to note that this was one of the first pieces written for a choir and an orchestra making it a choral symphony. Beethoven had wanted to write music for Schiller's poem "An die Freude" (Ode to Joy) since he was about 22, and some of the pieces he wrote earlier were used in this symphony. He kept writing and rewriting the piece until he had it just right. It is now one of the most played symphonies in the world! It is also considered Beethoven's best piece.

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, God of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee,
Opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee,
Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee,
Center of unbroken praise!.:
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Flowering  meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain,
Call us to rejoice in Thee.

Thou art giving and forgiving,
Ever blessing, ever blest,
Wellspring of the joy of living ocean depth of happy rest! 
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, --
All who live in love are Thine:
Teach us how to love each other,
Lift us to the joy divine..

Mortals join the mighty chorus,
Which the morning stars began;
Father-love is reigning o'er us,
Brother-love binds man to man.
Ever singing march we onward,
Victors in the midst of strife;
Joyful music lifts us sunward
in the triumph song of life!

Jesus Priceless Treasure

 This is one of my favorite hymns; I've known it for as long as I can remember. "Jesus, Priceless Treasure" is one of those old sixteenth century hymns that I love. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. The one I have here:  http://youtu.be/xd8NznkAIUE is one sung by four people in just the way I used to listen to it on CD when I was little.

Zadok the Priest

My Little brother, Benaiah, has a stuffed lamb named Zadok. This lamb also happens to be Benaiah's favorite animal and is not only taken with his papa everywhere he goes, but is also dragged into every fight, conversation, game and event that his doting father participates in.  Also the letter 'Z' is second only to 'B' in importance as far as reading goes and the name 'Zadok' was one of the first words Benaiah learned to recognize in the Bible. So you can imagine what happens when someone casually mentions that he saw a piece by Handel called "Zadok the Priest"! Yes he went crazy over it and would not let us rest while we were on the computer until he got to listen to "Zadok the Priest".  I then decided to listen to it myself and found it very beautiful; it is much like Messiah in style, which is to be expected, and isn't overly complicated. so here http://youtu.be/QCHUCMiJ_Ew is a link to this lovely piece, the instruments are all period instruments, which means that the instruments used were as much like those that were played when the piece was written as possible, you'll notice that in the wood winds and trumpets. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did!
