Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

I know a place

Where we can go

To lay the troubles down eating your soul

I know a place

Where mercy flows

Take the stains make you whiter than snow

 

Like a tide it is rising up

Deep inside

A current that moves and makes you come alive

Living water

That brings the dead to life

 

(chorus)

We're going down to the river

Down to the river

Down to the river to pray

Let's get washed by the water

Washed by the water

And rise up in amazing grace

Let's go down, down, down to the river

You will leave changed

Let's go down, down, down to the river

Never the same

 

I've seen it move

In my own life

Took me from dusty roads into Paradise

All of my dirt

All of my shame

Drowned in the streams that have made me born again

 

Like a tide it is rising up

Deep inside

A current that moves and makes you come alive

Living water

That brings the dead to life

 

(chorus)

 

Let's go down

Let's go down

Let's go down

 

(chorus)

TID-bits

Have you ever been whitewater rafting?  For me, it was a lesson in trust.  I had to believe my guide would get us through.  I had two young kids, and a wife.  I remember grabbing on to the life jacket of each one at least once to keep them from falling out of the inflatable raft.  The water was cold and unforgiving and would pull you under in a heartbeat.

Yet in the middle of it all, our guide backflipped out of the raft, cooled off, and nonchalantly climbed back in, all while we big-eye stared him.

This song opened my eyes in a big way to prayer.  I’ve never thought of prayer as a raging river that I could get caught up in, but isn’t that how we often describe it.  We often talk about the “power of prayer” as if it’s something that we can drown ourselves in.

Get caught up in the next prayer you say.  Let it take your breath away as you get swept away into a soul drenching presence that is much bigger than yourself.  Trust that the guide will get you through as you submit to His direction.

James 5:14-16 

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another,that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
