Story

On Wednesday evenings when I'm in town I sing at the Nevada House of Prayer doing a one hour worship set. The Nevada House of Prayer is located in an area of town where there are the hurting, the homeless and the hopeless. There is also a remnant of prayer warriors that come in to the House of Prayer faithfully each week to pray for these people and all of the lost in our city.

I wrote this song about those very people that are hurting and the prayers that pray for them each week.

The City of Hope!

From the album "The Foot of the Cross."

So many people hurting so many people cry

They don’t know who to turn to a Savior they deny

And they won’t even listen their hearts are hard like stone

They feel like they’re so alone.

 

City of hope where people are praying

For those who are hopeless to turn them around

Praying for all of the lost in this city

That they would find Jesus where hope can be found.

 

They live in constant sorrow they live in poverty

They need a hand to get out they need someone like me

Someone who will not give up stay on my knees and pray

Until they can find their way.

 

City of hope where people are praying

For those who are hopeless to turn them around

Praying for all of the lost in this city

That they would find Jesus where hope can be found.

 

God please show them your mercy

As I lift them up in prayer

Help them find their way to a brighter day

Let them know that you are there.

 

City of hope where people are praying

For those who are hopeless to turn them around

Praying for all of the lost in this city

That they would find Jesus where hope can be found.
