Keep me near

Jesus keep me near to Your heart
For outside of You I’m lost
Draw me in the tide of Your will
Lead me as I yield myself to You
Keep me near Your heart
Keep me near Your heart

Rescue me in weakness of mind
When distraction conquers me
Keep me in Your shadow oh Lord
Give me grace to follow where You lead
Keep me near Your heart
Keep me near Your heart

For You are everything that is beautiful
And You are all that I long to see in me
You are everything that is beautiful
Breathe Your desires in me

Keep me in the place where You are
For Your presence is my joy
Break my selfish nature and pride
Mould a life of loyalty to You
Keep me near Your heart
Keep me near Your heart

Form in us a heart of divine beauty


Right now

Dear Jesus,

You have poured out Your love for us when You shed Your blood on the cross 2000 years ago. Thank You for Your love. Now, I pray once again that You may fill us with Your love, Lord. Fill our family with love for each other. Fill our home with love that comes from You. May we all taste and experience the goodness of Your love and grace. May we let each other experience Your love, mercy and grace. May we be a family that seeks You and delights in doing Your will. May we praise and worship and serve You together as a family. This is my heart’s greatest desire now, Lord – that we, Crismo family, would come together to know You more and love and serve You and each other more and more each day. May You grant this desire of my heart, Lord Jesus. Thank You for Your love, for this life, and for our family. I love You, Jesus. Thank You for loving me. Amen.


Prayer meetings

ใ€Ž May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests.  Psalms 20:4 ~ 20:5ใ€


It has been seven months since we started our Wednesday prayer meetings and we have seen God’s power and grace in our answered prayers! New work oportunities and more fulfilling work experiences,  extra income, deeper relationships with family, friends, and workmates; wins and simple joys, strength for down moments, patience in times of waiting, and the desire to keep walking with God every moment.

Dear Lord, thank you for granting our hearts’ desires, for blessing our plans, and for granting our requests. May we, in gratitude, live faithfully for You, Jesus. Amen.


After school Wednesdays

Love under the tree


Heart-shaped leaves under
I wanna sit here for hours
List’ning to my God.

Warmth of God’s embrace
I feel loved, secured, cared for
I’m me without pretentions
And without reservations.
Thanks for your love, Lord.

I couldn’t ask for more
You’ve given me everything!
Now with all my whole being
I’ll live and love, sing praises
For You alone, God.

Everything for You, my God. ๐Ÿ™‚
