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.

Calvary's Anthem


Thou hast led me singing to the cross

      where I fling down all my burdens

        and see them vanish,

  where my mountains of guilt are levelled

    to a plain,

  where my sins disappear, though they are

    the greatest that exist,

  and are more in number than the grains

    of fine sand;
For there is power in the blood of Calvary

  to destroy sins more than can be counted

    even by one from the choir of heaven.

Thou hast given me a hill-side spring

  that washes clear and white,

    and I go as a sinner to its waters,

      bathing without hindrance

        in its crystal streams.

At the cross there is free forgiveness

    for poor and meek ones,

  and ample blessings that last for ever;

The blood of the Lamb is like a great river

    of infinite grace

  with never any diminishing of its fullness

  as thirsty ones without number drink of it.
O Lord, for ever will thy free forgiveness live

  that was gained on the mount of blood;

In the midst of a world of pain

  it is a subject for praise in every place,

    a song on earth, an anthem in heaven,

      its love and virtue knowing no end.

I have a longing for the world above

  where multitudes sing the great song,

  for my soul was never created to love

    the dust of earth.

Though here my spiritual state is frail and poor,

  I shall go on singing Calvary’s anthem.

May I always know

  that a clean heart full of goodness

    is more beautiful than the lily,

  that only a clean heart can sing by night

    and by day,

  that such a heart is mine when I abide

    at Calvary.
