Until The Whole World Hears – Missional Music Monday

By Monday, August 9, 2010 0 0

I’m on a little bit of a low since candidate seminar ended, which is to be expected. You go go go for nearly three weeks, 100 percent focused on the next big step of your life: moving across the world, alongside 30 other people in exactly the same boat, and then you come back to reality, which is a waiting room of sorts.

Not that the waiting room is a bad thing: if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that God prepares waiting rooms with as much intention as He prepares seasons of change, trial, and triumph. He can be just as glorified in my waiting on Him as He is in my doing things through Him.

But waiting rooms aren’t blogworthy!

I do have a mini update, though:

1. We’re working on prayer cards. I may develop two or three more and have a vote, or I may just go with the one I developed. Do you guys want to vote on our prayer card?

2. We’ll send out our first prayer letter once we’ve got our church logistics set.

3. The team in Spain could use your prayers: soon they’ll be starting an outreach for teens, ages 12-16. This is what Chris and I want to do when we get to Spain, but they obviously can’t wait for us. Please pray alongside us for the following:

  • Students: pray that God would bring unsaved and saved kids to the outreach events and that they would get involved and be responsive to the Gospel.
  • Confidence: youth ministry is somewhat unfamiliar to our teammate Rich, but God has called him and given him a coworker who is willing to help with ideas and activities.
  • Fruit: pray that students would become believers, act in faith and be baptized, and begin to grow in their faith. Young people coming to the Lord are often the jumpstart that little churches need to engage in evangelism and discipleship on deeper levels, so a fruitful youth ministry might be God’s way of making a fruitful church.
  • Us: we are almost jealous to be in Spain helping out. Ask God to give us patience while we do prefield ministry and at the same time move swiftly to get us there soon.

Casting Crowns – Until the Whole World Hears

Lord I want to feel your heart
and see the world through your eyes
I want to be your hands and feet
I want to live a life that leads

chorus
ready yourselves
ready yourselves
Let us shine the light of Jesus in the darkest night
ready yourselves
ready yourselves
May the powers of darkness tremble as our praises rise
Until the whole world hears Lord we are calling out
Lifting up Your name for all to hear the sound
Like voices in the wilderness we’re crying out
as the day draws near
we’ll sing until the whole world hears

Lord let your sleeping giant arise
Catch the demons by surprise
Holy nation sanctified
Let this be our battle cry

chorus

we’ll sing until the whole world hears
we’ll sing until the whole world hears

Want to be your hands and feet
Want to be a life that leads
To see you set the captive free
Until the whole world hears
and I pray that they will see more of you and less of me
Lord I want my life to be the song You sing
Until the whole world hears Lord we are calling out
Lifting your name up for all to hear the sound
Like voices in the wilderness we’re crying out
as the day draws near
we’ll sing until the whole world hears
we’ll sing until the whole world hears
we’ll sing until the whole world hears
