Saviour he can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave

Christian Music - Lynda Randle - I Am Free

"I accepted the Lord as my personal Savior at the age of 12. My dad, who was an evangelist in the inner–city of Washington, D.C., led me to the Lord at our kitchen table. After four years of trying to do things my way, I realized that Christ had only been my Savior and not my Lord. So, by faith, I surrendered my life completely to Him to use me in whatever way He saw fit. To my surprise, He started using music, and believe me, it was a surprise. I had never dreamed of becoming a gospel singer.

After failing the 9th grade and barely making it through the l0th grade in the D.C. public school system, my parents placed me in a predominately white Christian school. My whole world began to change. I started to see life from a totally different perspective and I was excited about all the possibilities that God had for me. After being in this school for nearly one month, I reluctantly joined the only choir that they had, which happened to be all white. Speaking of possibilities, singing with that choir almost seemed an impossibility at first. But God was faithful! I believe that God was preparing me then for what I know to be His will for me now. Bridging gaps.

I know that God has definitely placed a call upon my life to help tear down the walls between the races that have been built over the years and in their place build bridges. There is a great need today for bridge–builders and still a greater need to help people cross over. People that have never known how to, were afraid to, or just plain refused to in the past. I am so excited that God has allowed me the privilege of helping to build these bridges and enable me to help others cross over as well. It is about time that they know what is on the other side of life, so to speak. Fear, ignorance, and anger has held us back too long. I am ready to cross over. Are you?"

Pastor Tim - Pray For America - Geoge Washington's Prayers for Himself and America

George Washington was a man of noble character. He is remembered by many as a warrior, patriot and was the first president of the United States of America.

As you read these prayers you discover how much George Washington was influenced by the Bible. He was clearly humble before his God and aware of how dependent he was on God for his every breath.

NOTE: Prayers are from George Washington's hand written Prayer Journal.

"O eternal and everlasting God, I presume to present myself this morning before thy Divine majesty, beseeching thee to accept of my humble and hearty thanks, that it hath pleased thy great goodness to keep and preserve me the night past from all the dangers poor mortals are subject to, and has given me sweet and pleasant sleep, whereby I find my body refreshed and comforted for performing the duties of this day, in which I beseech thee to defend me from all perils of body and soul.

Direct my thoughts, words and work. Wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the lamb, and purge my heart by thy Holy Spirit, from the dross of my natural corruption, that I may with more freedom of mind and liberty of will serve thee, the ever lasting God, in righteousness and holiness this day, and all the days of my life.

Increase my faith in the sweet promises of the Gospel. Give me repentance from dead works. Pardon my wanderings, and direct my thoughts unto thyself, the God of my salvation. Teach me how to live in thy fear, labor in thy service, and ever to run in the ways of thy commandments. Make me always watchful over my heart, that neither the terrors of conscience, the loathing of holy duties, the love of sin, nor an unwillingness to depart this life, may cast me into a spiritual slumber. But daily frame me more and more into the likeness of thy son Jesus Christ, that living in thy fear, and dying in thy favor, I may in thy appointed time attain the resurrection of the just unto eternal life. Bless my family, friends & kindred unite us all in praising & glorifying thee in all our works begun, continued, and ended, when we shall come to make our last account before thee blessed Saviour, who hath taught us thus to pray, our Father."
George Washington

"If it is Thy holy will that we shall obtain a place and name among the nations of the earth, grant that we may be enabled to show our gratitude for Thy goodness by our endeavors to fear and obey Thee. Bless us with thy wisdom in our counsels, success in battle, and let our victories be tempered with humanity. Endow, also, our enemies with enlightened minds, that they become sensible of their injustice, and willing to restore our liberty and peace. Grant the petition of Thy servant, for the sake of whom Thou hast called Thy beloved Son; nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done."
George Washington

"We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy Holy protection; and Thou wilt incline the hearts of the Citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to Government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow Citizens of the United States at large, and particularly for their brethren who have served in the Field.

And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that Charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the Characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed Religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
George Washington

Southern Gospel - Gaither Vocal Band - Heaven's Joy Awaits

When we leave this lowland,
We will cross the Jordan;
Past the chilly torrent,
Heaven’s joy awaits.
Just beyond the blue horizon,
Just above the starry sky, starry blue sky.
Far above this land of sorrow,
Way above each tear and sigh, every sigh.
Just a few more miles before us,
Just a little while to wait, patiently wait.
Soon we’ll sing redemption’s chorus,
Heaven’s joy awaits, Heaven awaits
