Praying for Team Haiti: Day 13

Last night at band practice for this coming Sunday's church service, one of the songs we worked on was Here I Am by Downhere.  I just really love this song... the words speak deeply into my soul without fail each time I hear them!  

As we worked on the song... it occurred to me that the lyrics can definitely be Team Haiti's prayer!  So... here is my prayer today for Team Haiti: (If you would like to listen to this song, it is on my Playlist on the side bar.)
Sometimes Your calling comes in dream
Sometimes it comes in the Spirit's breeze
You reach for the deepest hope in me
And call out for the things of eternity

But I'm a man of dust and stains
You move in me so I can say

Here I am, Lord send me
All of my life I make an offering
Here I am, Lord send me
Somehow my story is a part of Your plan
Here I am

When setbacks and failures and upset plans
Test my faith and leave me with empty hands
Are You not the closest when it's hardest to stand
I know that You will finish what You began

And these broken parts You redeem
Become the song that I can sing

Overwhelmed by the thought of my weakness
And the fear that I'll fail You in the end
In this mess I'm just one of the pieces
I can't put this together but You can
Here I Am
All my life an offering to You, to You
Somehow my story is a part of Your plan
Here I am
