Save My City

My city… my city…
my state and country…
we are all so filled with sin!
I wish I could save us all,
but I am filled with sin within.
Asheville has turned its eye away
from the God who loves her so.
They’d rather enjoy sexual preference
instead of a loving God who won’t let go.
Some of us are praying.
Some of us are trying,
but so many of us
just leave God crying.
Save us, God! Save us from ourselves!
Some of us want you AND your help.
Don’t let us be another Sodom or Gomorrah.
Please save our wicked city!
Please cleanse us from our filth!
Take heart and have pity!
In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen!

Renew My Purity

**God answered prayer! It took time and discipline… years ago the mercy of the Holy Spirit led me out of my wilderness. He did answer prayer. He still answers every day.**

Filth… I am filled with filth and perverse ways.
Why do I think like this?
God, you and I know it is wrong and sinful.
Why do you let this all persist?
I pray and I pray, from the heart of my soul…
cleanse me… renew me… purify.
I pray for you to be my strength and power.
Why does it seem you deny?
I need to be purified by your Son’s blood.
Yet, still I continue in sin.
Why do I betray the love of my life?
Why do I just give in?
God, please, cleanse me, forgive me.
Rebuild me in your hands.
Renew in me a joy for spiritual purity
and help me to take a stand.
