If your prayer life’s almost gone and you’re barely hanging on,

You might need a resurrection…not from the grave, but from beyond.

Jesus came to give us life, and give it abundantly,

So something’s wrong if you don’t have it…let’s take a look and see.

Did you know that repairing people is a lot like fixing a car?

If a wire’s bad, you could lose your spark…you’re not going very far.

Mechanics use a flashlight…God’s word can light our way.

They fix things on their back…we get on our knees and pray.

Now when I’m abiding in Him and His word is abiding in me,

If I lose my spark or something’s wrong, His word can help me see.

But if I forget my first love and go back to my old ways,

Then I forgot the blood He shed and the price He had to pay.

God has given us every tool to conquer the power of sin;

But now and then we need a tune-up to help us live for Him.

Are you in need of a tune-up?  Don’t wait to call ahead.

If you wait too long, you’re going to need a tow truck instead!

One day we’ll stand before Him and see Him face to face,

Not clothed in our own righteousness, but in His amazing grace.

Until that day Lord help us to present ourselves to you,

A vessel that has honored you in everything we do.
