Time for Comps…Need Prayer!

Posted on Updated on

Well, the time has come! Tomorrow I am looking for lots of people willing to pray for me. After two and a half years of PhD course work, I take my written Comps from 9:00 – 4:00 tomorrow. Next Friday I sit for the oral defense portion. In weakness His power is made known…so I am really ready to see that! Been preparing and look forward to it, but I’m still nervous! So pray for recall, clarity of expression and peace as I answer two essay type questions, each taking three hours. SDG! Thanks to all who will pray! Very grateful!

A Russian Kids “Hallelujah”

Posted on

The captivating melody of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”  has made it a favorite resulting Russian Hallelujahin thousands of covers by all kinds of musicians.  Somehow the bizarre confusion of Bible stories gets overlooked because the chorus says, “Hallelujah,” which means “praise the Lord.”

A couple of years ago, several videos appeared in which the words were re-written to reflect Biblical truth, some of which still appear on Youtube (however, some are muted due to copyright issues).

On the Russian version of the the TV show, “The Voice Kids,” four young musicians present a rewritten version you may well enjoy.   The melody is indeed beautiful, their harmonies extraordinary, and even though the translation is rough, it does succeed in turning the song into one of genuine, honest praise to the Lord.  Lots of other seem to like it as well since it has over 8 million hits on Youtube!

Hope you enjoy!
