Watch & Pray

“I first sang these words spontaneously in the middle of an all night prayer meeting on Maundy Thursday, echoing the words of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane. Since then this meditative prayer-song has become a call to worship in our community as we come to gather. An invitation from Jesus to come and pray. And as we pray, to create space to watch and listen, to feel the heaviness of the things on his heart and to follow in the way of sacrifice and surrender. To take up our cross and follow.” – Helen Wright from Heartcries Worship
