Why a site about prayer?

The purpose of this site is to encourage us to each go deeper in our prayer life. One way that we do that is by praying together. Another way we do that is by praying individually yet collectively on the same prayer themes. Our hope is that as we share prayers and reflect on them and pray over them at the same time in our individual lives, the Holy Spirit will speak to each of us and allow us to encourage and edify one another in prayer.

It's All About You Jesus

These words were originally penned as lyrics to a song, "Jesus, Lover of My Soul (It's All About You)" by Paul Oakley

It's all about You, Jesus
And all this is for You
For Your glory and your fame
It's not about me
As if You should do things my way
You alone are God
And I surrender to your ways


  1. Jesus, it is all about you. I surrender to you alone. You are holy. You are worthy. You are good and pure. You are true and right. It is not about me. In any way. Humble me, bring me to my knees, you must become greater in my life as I become less. Amen.

  2. You alone are God. I surrender to your ways. Everything I do is for you, Jesus. Bless the work of my hands, even right now, when it's late and I'm tired, and keep me focused on bringing you glory. You alone are worthy!

  3. “And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”
    ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  4. Jesus, you are everything! Thank you for shaming the shame. Thank you that for the joy set before you, you endured the cross, scorning its shame. Thank you that you trusted in the Father and Spirit when you were separated from them. Thank you that you are now victoriously standing on the throne, ruling with power over all. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You, Jesus, are everything to me! Oh how I adore you. You are so worthy. Amen.

  5. Lord Jesus, I pray this first part above and it just seems natural to keep going, and my heart keeps singing the second part:

    Jesus, lover of my soul
    All consuming fire is in Your gaze
    Jesus, I want you to know
    I will follow you all my days
    For no one else in history is like you
    And history itself belongs to you
    Alpha and Omega, You have loved me
    And I will share eternity with You

  6. You are friend. Lover. Saviour. Teacher. Hope. My shepherd. The living water. The living bread. The vine in which I abide. The servant who washes my feet. The lover of my soul. My hope for the future. You are everything. Thank you Jesus.

  7. As if I should do things my way. Forgive me Lord. Amen.
