Everything Under the Sun: 'Desert Song' by Hillsong, Prayer in Dry Season of Life

'Desert Song' by Hillsong, Prayer in Dry Season of Life

     At some point in life, everyone goes through something--financial lack, failure or disappointment, sickness, broken or challenged relationships, etc. These we, Christians, call 'walking in the desert', a dry and mostly unproductive place or phase in our life. We know that this is only temporary because Jesus has already overcome the world. Therefore, it is our faith in Him during our walk in the desert that removes us from  that dry land and  makes us to lie down in green pastures and beside still waters. 

     I recently went through disappointment and pain, and I remembered this song, the 'Desert Song' which we've sung in our church. It is a song which is actually a prayer in itself. It is a song of faith that no matter what we go through in life, God is our healer, provider,  and friend--He would never leave us nor forsake us. He is our everlasting help in time of need. It is also a song which reminds us that after we've received the blessings of His great grace, we need to give back the glory He deserves. Thank You, Lord, for You are our Savior. 

     Here's the video together with lyrics. Meditate on the words. Sing and pray with it. 

     The 'Desert Song' was written and sung by Brooke Fraser of Hillsong in 2008 and contained in the Hillsong album 'This is Our God' released that year. There are other songs in this album which you may also be familiar with and have sung in your church. It's good to play these songs at home to worship the Lord with it. Actually, I found out that you can also download the MP3 album, or get the audio CD or DVD of 'This is Our God' from Be blessed, always.
