A PRAYER YOU MAY WANT TO PRAY

While driving home last week I heard a song on the radio that grabbed my attention. The writer and singer of the song was voicing a prayer that I thought would be good for me to pray. When I got home I found the lyrics on the internet and as I read them thought others might also be interested in praying the prayer.

I was concerned about copyright restrictions and sent the following email to author and singer Brandon Holt requesting his permission:

Brandon, I heard your song “Less of Me, More of You” on The Message yesterday and was challenged and moved by it. I am writing to request your permission to use the lyrics in a blog post suggesting believers use your lyrics as a prayer. I do not generate any income on my blog posts. I understand if you cannot give me permission, but I do believe my readers would love it and possibly get your album. Let me know asap as I would like to share the lyrics during Holy Week. Thank you and keep up the good work.

Within about 15 minutes I received the following email from Brandon:

Hey Sir!

Thanks for reaching out. I truly appreciate that. I’m honored to hear the song touched you. Please FEEL FREE to use it however you’d like. I pray it will bless all who are connected to you! 

Be blessed!! 

Enjoy the lyrics below, consider praying them, and find a way to listen to Brandon sing them.

Brandon Holt – Less of Me, More of You Lyrics

My heart desire is to be close to you
Nothing more to say, noting more left to do
So quench this thirsty soul
And take complete control
Until there’s less of me and more of you

More of your power, more of your glory
More of your righteousness
and holiness in my life
More of your kindness
more of your spirit lord
My heart desire is less of me more of you
My heart desire is to be close to you
Nothing more to say, noting more left to do
So quench this thirsty soul
And take complete control
Until there’s less of me and more of you

More of your power, more of your glory
More of your righteousness
and holiness in my life
More of your kindness
more of your spirit Lord
My heart desire is less of me more of you

I give my life
I give my soul
I am yours
Take control
Fully I surrender

Everything that I am
I place my life in your hands
fully I surrender for more of your power
More of your glory
More of your righteousness
And holiness in my life
More of kindness
More of your spirit lord
My heart desire is less of me and more of your power
More of your glory, more of your righteousness and holiness in my life
More of your kindness more of your spirit lord
My heart desire is less of me and more of you
My heart desire is less of me and more of you

I hope you enjoy the next few days of Holy Week and find Brandon’s music and words as challenging and inspirational as I did.

  3. So often we want to do something more in our relationship, our friendship with the creator of all things good. But for what ever reason were ill equipped spiritually to begin that dialogue..These words make up the perfect prayer to make that happen. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Absolutely beautiful lyrics that every believer should be striving for every day. That every day in our walk we take one step closer to the Lord. We are studying James right now, where James is encouraging believers to not just hear the word but doers. Wow, what a study. God Bless you Bob as your blog’s encourage and teach us.
