All My Cares

Lord, I Give Thee All My Cares

Lord, I give Thee all my cares

I come before Thee now,

On Thy Altar lay them, Lord,

I lay my burdens down.

Lord Jesus, You said, “Come, oh come,

You weary come to Me

And lay thy heavy burdens down

And leave them at My feet.”

Upon thee take My yoke

And rest I’ll give to thee,”

This is what You said, Jesus,

To all who are weary.

I come, I come, Lord Jesus,

To Thee with all my needs

I give to Thee my troubles

While You give me Thy peace.

I come, I come, Lord Jesus,

And give Thee all my cares

And in my heart You sing to me

Thy love and mercy prayers

That comfort and restore my soul

And wash away my fears,

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Jesus said, “Come unto Me,

all ye that labor and are heavy laden,

and I will give you rest.

Take My yoke upon you,

and learn of Me;

for I am meek and lowly in heart:

And ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

~ Matthew 11:28-29

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You that we can come to Thy Altar and cast our burdens and cares at Thy feet knowing that You care for each one of us and love us as much as if we were Thy only child You had to love.

Thank You that You will lift our cares and burdens and replace them with Thy peace. You will never fail or forsake us. For so Thy word has promised and You keep every promise forever.

Father God, thank You for loving us so much that although we are sinners You sent Thy beloved Son Jesus to the cross to forgive us and redeem us from our sins.

We love You, In Jesus name, amen.

Songs Of Comfort

One night a few years ago I was out with my husband and friends who’s son was performing on the vibes at a local cafe.
It was getting late, some young women soaked in perfume came in and sat near us.
I immediately prayed that the Lord would protect me from getting a migraine.
Scents are one of my fiercest migraine triggers.
Suddenly as I was listening to the music, I became aware of all of the colors in the cafe; then everything I saw and heard poured like an uncontrolled river into my brain simultaneously.
I had no ability to focus on anything I heard or saw.
Now the cafe loomed up around me like a room crowded with thunder and giants in a blaze of unrestrained colors. I seemed to see every minute detail of everything ~the people and what they were wearing, every nuance of every color in the room, the windows, what was outside them, what was on the walls, the globe lights ~ and I could smell every odor~ the food cooking, the smoke from the grill, the smell of people and their colognes, shampoo, soap, as well as whatever they were drinking or eating ~ all of which was profoundly nauseating.
And all the while the music poured into my ears along with all of the other information without a director to focus my thoughts. It was like being in a madhouse.
As panic arose in my heart, I prayed for the Lord to rescue me.
Suddenly I felt His presence holding me close.
Although my brain was still in a state of uncontrolled sensory input, now I was no longer afraid for the Lord was guarding my thoughts and helping me to view the experience from a different perspective.
For the Lord had suggested to me, “Isn’t this fascinating, you don’t often get to see and hear things like this. Just think of it as a story you are writing.”
So then I calmed down and was even able for a few seconds at least to focus on bits of conversations around me. If raucous laughter was like nails piercing my ears, even the barest whispers were strangely loud for I seemed able to hear every noise in the room along with the music.
One moment I was mesmerized by someone’s drama only to be attracted by someone else’s saga behind me, and then the music, then the colored lights, then BANG went my head exploding in pain, and the room went spinning and I almost passed out.
I don’t even know how Mark got me home.
I vaguely remember our friends asking if I were all right.
Then Mark saying we had to leave.
“Hush, Be Still, Be Silent…” one of the comforting songs on my new album Paths of Mercy is just the right prayer song for a migraine sufferer. 🙂
There are so many prayer songs on Paths of Mercy that are just right for someone who needs to calm down, to get quiet before the Lord, to return and rest in Christ.
The prayer songs on this album are some of the most encouraging songs that my Savior has ever inspired.
Sometimes people ask why they have to suffer. There is a passage in the Bible I cling to that helps me put my own suffering in perspective every time I listen to the comforting prayer songs, poems, and music the Lord gives me.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our troubles,
so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort
we ourselves receive from God.
For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ,
so also our comfort abounds through Christ.
If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation;
if we are comforted, it is for your comfort,
which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. ” (NIV) 2 Corinthians 1:3-6
“Oh Lord, You Know The Way I Take,” is a prayer song that reflects my challenges in just showing up to any task by faith when I barely have any strength to get out of bed.
The “Prayer Song to Jesus My Good Shepherd,” is one I love to listen to and sing often because it encompasses so many of my challenges and presents my needs upon Christ’s Altar of Mercy and Grace.

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 KJV

“Hush, Be Still, Be Silent…” the prayer song I referred to earlier, is one I praise and thank my Lord for always.
This song truly presents my needs to God when I have migraines and all my thoughts are whirring about in my brain like a blender out of control, and only the Lord can push the stop button and reassemble all the fragments and corral them back into the fold of rationality.
And which of us cannot say that we don’t need to seek the Lord now while He can be found?
I know I harp on this but All of these songs were inspired by the Holy Spirit and the scriptures.
They came to me as gifts from the Lord and I am profoundly grateful and humbled by them.
God’s gifts more than anything remind me of the truth of the scriptures that God indeed has no favorites.

Paths of Mercy Comforting Christian Prayer Songs by Suzanne Davis Harden All Glory To God

Their Voice Has Gone Out To All The Earth

All Glory To God Forever

Inspired by Psalm 19

The heavens sing of Thy glory,

The skies reveal Thy work

Every day they sing of Thee

In songs that have no words…

Every day and night they sing

They pour forth melodies

In a language without sound

Their love to Thee they bring.

Though their speech be silent

Their grammar be unknown

Their syntax may be foreign

Yet they may be known

Everywhere in all the earth

In every place they go

God makes their language understood

Where their songs are sown.

They sing God’s holy truths

Every night and day

They glorify the Most High

They praise His holy name…

Before all of the Angels

And all the Universe

Their songs are triumphs of His grace

That display His works…

All glory to God forever

They’re singing all the day…

All glory! Glory! Glory!

May Christ be ever praised!

All glory to Christ forever

Who saved the world from sin

May Christ be praised forevermore

By all who honor Him,

In Jesus’ holy name,

Amen.

Scriptures For Meditation

“The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork. Day after day they pour out speech, and night after night they display knowledge.

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their voice has gone out through all the earth, their words to the end of the world…” Psalms 19:1-4 WEB

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known of God is revealed in them, for God revealed it to them.

For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse.

Because, *knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, neither gave thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened.”~ Romans 1:18-21 WEB

*Please note that Paul addresses these words to those who are Believers in God, to those who DO KNOW GOD.

The word Paul used for *know is

Strongs1097 γινώσκω [GINW/SKW] {ginṓskō} \ghin-oce’-ko\a prolonged form of a primary verb; to “know” (absolutely)(allow, be aware (of), feel, (have) know(-ledge), perceived, be resolved, can speak, be sure, understand.

*Please re-read the above passages in Romans 1 –not as addressed to unbelievers, -but as to the believer who has suppressed the truth about God in Christ...

One needs to READ the Bible and not merely books ABOUT the Bible, ie –commentaries by people.

Because we are ALL human and we all make mistakes.

One needs to read what our Lord Jesus and the Apostles taught ~~~

~~not what so and so taught, or even what a denomination or school or theology or philosophy that professes to be Christianity teaches ~

because our destiny is at stake.

Jesus said, ““But don’t you be called ‘Rabbi,’ for one is your teacher, the Christ, and all of you are brothers.

Call no man on the earth your father, for one is your Father, he who is in heaven.

Neither be called masters, for one is your master, the Christ.

But he who is greatest among you will be your servant.

Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

Matthew 23:8-12 WEB

If we argue that the pastor or a famous person is more educated and better able to teach us than Jesus Christ from His Word or the Holy Spirit through His word, then we do not believe Jesus’ words.

We become a follower of our pastor or famous teacher or author or philosopher or school rather than Jesus Christ.

That person cannot be our Savior though.

If we are a follower of a human and not actually following Christ, we profess we do not actually believe the above words that Christ spoke that He alone must be our MAIN TEACHER~ RABBI, and the following verses ( *See below) from the Word of God.

If a teacher suppresses these verses then they suppress the truth about Christ.

Meditate on the following scripture verses…they reinforce Jesus’ teachings that we must abide in HIM, allow His Holy Spirit to privately teach us as we maintain a consistent prayer life with Him, worship Him, and personally study His Word with Him that we might come to know our Lord and Savior personally and glorify Him as we were created to.

All we have is idolatry if we reverse His paradigm of worship Jesus first and foremost~ if we make anything but Jesus our Head, we will have only an idol.

The first commandment is to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, mind, and strength. (Deuteronomy 6:5)

If we stop loving JESUS as our Head, we wander off into error and we will, before we know it,change the truth of God into a lie and be self deceived yet still call ourselves a Christian.

Meditate:

Jesus said, “He that loveth Me not keepeth not My sayings: and the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father’s which sent Me.”

“These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.”

“Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you.” ~ John 14:24-26,16:7,13-14 KJV

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

And this is the promise that He hath promised us, even eternal life.

These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.

But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

And now, little children, abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.

If ye know that He is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of Him.”~ 1 John 2:15-29 – KJV
