Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:
No musician could ask for more gifted men who are dedicated to serving God to provide supporting music tracks than God has gifted to me.  On this power-punching song,  that is
Johnny Kyle from my J&T Studio on the crunching lead guitar,
and Claxton Wilson from my Valley Worship & Praise Productions Studio on the slamming drums.

Before writing this blog today, I had to go into my music files to remember what the song even sounds like.  Remembering the studio day at J&T gave me a laugh of joy ---

Johnny literally grabbed his guitar and played what he felt -- and this is the FIRST take.  He agrees with my concept, for I had literally sat at the controller keyboard and began playing "anything" on the track I brought to his studio.
We  literally have only a single idea where this music idea came from---->
from GOD.     I  myself am not this talented naturally.  
This is music from the LORD Creator, 
inspired and empowered by His Holy Spirit. 
Ephesians 3: 20 to 21... God only.

Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:
No, this is not  some insulting song about any specific church.... but it  is sadly so descriptive of so many churches.    

The entire CONCEPT of this song came when I was discussing churches with a sorta relative.  I commented that people in our shared church denomination don't really pray.  She angrily replied, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN, OUR CHURCH DOESN'T PRAY?!"

HENCE,  line 1 of this song was born as God drew me to think on it.

It's   heart-breaking   to think of the hard working people in church who are so weary and discouraged, who haven't found either Ephesians 3:20-21's promises of God's strengthening, or Ephesians 6's warnings of the need to pray TOGETHER  for protection  as a united church Body of Christ. 
Oh, please PLEASE see the JOY that's missed   

by any church that does not fervently set aside self-sufficiency---
pride and ask our Great Lord for the Help 
He already yearns to give to you, Church! -- BUT  respects you too much to give that help if you don't ask...
If you do not UNITE in humble prayer for help.

Dedicated to our Holy Spirit Answer-er,  2 May 2011

WHAT do you MEAN that “Our church does not pray?”  Why,
ev'ry church service, we take time to say
some thanks to God for all that He has done, and
   ask God to bless all our plans    to serve Him.

    Are we a self-reliant Church?    God says we NEED His protection!

What do you MEAN that “Our church does not pray?”  At
least for five minutes, we ask God to heal
people we think of, and we list their names.  And
sometimes pray for our church programs,   for help.
Are we a self-reliant Church?    God says we NEED His protection!

Ephesians 6 has God's Word to each Church:  He
tells US to pray for God's protection from
Satan, who's working to divide OUR church.  Is
our church too proud to remember WE NEED HELP???
Are we a self-reliant Church?    God says we NEED His protection!
[Ephesians 6:12 read during interlude]

Ephesians 6 has God's Word to each Church: 
Satan is REAL so God's Spirit must help.
God gives us armor, but it won't jump up, and
cover us unless we pray and put it on!
Are we a self-reliant Church?    

God says we NEED His protection!
Are we _ a  BARELY-PRAYING CHURCH? .............
Are we _ a  BARELY-PRAYING CHURCH? .............   
                     ARE   WE ????                      

“Now to Him Who is able to far more than we ASK or think….. "  
 -- Ephesians 3:20a NKJV

Ephesians 6:12, written to the CHURCH at Ephesus…. not just for individuals, as preached today >>>    
     “Put on the WHOLE armor of God, 
that you may be able  to stand against the WILES of the devil.”
