This Sunday is our second Sunday in the”Forgiveness” sermon series. It is such a difficult subject for many people. I prayed and thought hard while choosing anthems and music for the worship service in this series. My prayer is that our music can be used by the Holy Spirit who opens hearts and touches us gently to feel God’s presence. I think that forgiveness can’t be made by only our own will. Even though we do forgive, complete forgiveness is always in God’s presence.

The sanctuary choir will lift up their prayerful song to the Lord at the 11:00 AM service with, “My Wordless Prayer.” It is one of my favorite songs and a beautiful one. I pray that God accepts our music as worship and praise and as a fragrant offering. Ward will also share a beautiful song, “A Heart That Forgives” as an offertory.

Here are the lyrics of the anthem. May the Lord hear our prayers!

My Wordless Prayer

My words lie still and lifeless as dust upon the sand, I can no longer voice one request or one demand. My cup of tears is empty, I can no longer cry, my lips have fallen silent, my prayer is but a sigh. Spirit, come and rest Your ear upon my heart, O come and hear my wordless prayer, my silent plea and take them far away from me. Take them from this ear of mine to the Father’s heart divine. Speak in tones unknown to man that God may hear and understand. My voice is weak from calling to You both night and day. How long will You be silent? Why do You turn away?

Spirit, come and rest Your ear upon my heart, O come and hear my wordless prayer, my silent plea and take them far away from me. Take them from this ear of mine to the Father’s heart divine. Speak in tones unknown to man that God may hear and understand.
