One such opportunity presented itself one particular morning, when the Lord was just speaking to me about the old African song, Kumbayah. I was thinking about the desperation of Africa and how the very nation itself is crying out, “Lord, come by here!” With my heart burdened for a country, I’d never been to, I shared with this little class of 4 year olds, that this song was a prayer. And if they ever needed Jesus, anytime, anywhere, all they needed to do was sing Kumbayah.
As we began to sing the song, I felt the presence of the Lord come down into that room. I looked around at the little faces singing this worn, and dusty old song. I sensed that we were truly in store for a God moment. A feeling came over the room as those precious children sang this rusty old campfire prayer. As we finished the song, one little girl in particular looked at me through eyes, swimming in tears and said “Sometimes, I just feel so sad!” I found out later that her mommy and daddy had just filed for divorce. As I put my arms around her, choked by the desperation I could see in this little girl’s face. I began to pray, “Lord, come by here!”
The Lord so beautifully showed me, that there weren’t only children, in Africa, crying out for God. But that also, in the smallest of hearts, in a nation where there is a church on every corner, that God is hearing the cry to Kumbayah!
