My Prayer for You

I am continually encouraging you to fall in love with our Savior; to fall on His Grace and worship His Holiness. The aim of my encouragement is well stated in this song:

“Breathe”

This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
This is my daily bread
Your very word spoken to me

And I I’m desperate for you
And I I’m I’m lost without you

This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
this is my daily bread
your very word spoken to me

And I’m, I’m desperate for you
And I’m, I’m lost without you

And I’m desperate for you
And I’m, I’m lost without you.

I’m lost without you.

I’m lost without you.

I’m desperate for you.

(Cry out to live)

I’m desperate for you..

I’m lost, I’m lost, I’m lost without you..
I’m lost without you

I’m desperate for you

(How many of you are hungry for God?)

(I want more of Him. Who wants the flood gates to open up?)

The song was written by Marie Barnett, and I remember a time when she was explaining how the song came about. She stated that the song’s words came out spontaneously during a Sunday evening service at the Mission Viejo Vineyard in Southern California. “We had been singing ‘Isn’t He’ by John Wimber, and my husband continued to play. I was so enthralled with Jesus at that moment, thinking I could never live, I could never even take a breath if I didn’t have a word from Him every day, and I heard those words—’This is the air I breathe. This is my daily bread’—and I started singing them.”

But then, when Barnett first heard Michael W. Smith’s version of this song, she was driving in her car. Regarding that, she explained, “I just started bawling. I love that version, because at the end when he’s saying ‘Cry out to Him,’ it’s like ‘Oh! People are worshiping Jesus! Yea!'”

My friends, that is my desire for each one of you. Listen to that song again and allow it to become your prayer of worship this morning (and let it become a habit every day of the rest of your life).
