Prayers amidst the flood waters~~~

Prayers lifted for the people impacted by the flood waters in North Dakota and Minnesota… I’m reminded of Jars of Clay’s song Flood ~~~

 Kyrie eleison, Lord have mercy;  Christe eleison, Christ have mercy. 

Rain, rain on my face
It hasnt stopped raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become one with the mud

Chorus:

But if I cant swim after forty days
And my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves
Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
Lift me up
Lift me up – when Im falling
Lift me up – Im weak and Im dying
Lift me up – I need you to hold me
Lift me up – keep me from drowning again

Downpour on my soul
Splashing in the ocean, Im losing control
Dark sky all around
I cant feel my feet touching the ground

[chorus]

Calm the storms that drench my eyes
Dry the streams still flowing
Cast down all the waves of sin
And guilt that overthrow me

[chorus]

Lift me up – when Im falling
Lift me up – Im weak and Im dying
Lift me up – I need you to hold me
Lift me up – keep me from drowning again
