Greetings LoveMusic! listeners, and a special shout out to Hillsong fans!
 
Back in 2002, when I was with Derek Prince Ministries as the Director of Finance and Operations, my good wife Laurie and I had the great opportunity to travel to China on an international outreach. Sponsored by the DPM-CHin office, led by the Director, Brit Ross Paterson, about 10 of us from the USA and the UK met in Hong Kong. From there we carried into the mainland, using plane carry-on bags, Chinese Mandarin Bibles and Derek Prince books which had been translated into Chinese also. We passed them on to members of the underground church whom we met in secret.
 
On the long train rides from the coastal city to Beijing, and back again, I had my portable CD player going much of the time (plenty of batteries!) It was 22-hour ride each way on the train, so there was plenty of listening time.  Along with many other worship songs, I had in my CD holder Integrity Music’s By Your Side, with the song “You Said” included. I had not heard this worship heart cry before, but when I did, I had it playing over and over and over again. I wrote in my daily journal how the Lord was breaking my heart for the nations. Truly it had an impact on my Christian worldwide view. 
As you listen now, hear the Lord’s heart for the people of all the nations, and let Him fill your heart with His love. May you know even more this day His heart-cry for salvation to come to these. I pray that together we will do our part in impacting the world with the Gospel of the truth. 

Ask and I’ll give the nations to you Oh Lord, that’s the cry of my heart. Distant shores and the islands will see Your light, as it rises on us.”
Ahava and shalom,

“You Said” from the Hillsong Worship album ‘By Your Side’
released in July 1999.
Lyrics:
You said, “Ask and you will receive Whatever you need”
You said, “Pray and I’ll hear from Heaven And I’ll heal your land”
You said, Your glory will fill the earth Like water, the sea
You said, “Lift up your eyes The harvest is here, yes the Kingdom is near”
You said, “Ask and I’ll give the nations to you”
Oh Lord, that’s the cry of my heart
Distant shores and the islands will see Your light, as it rises on us
Oh Lord, I ask for the nation
Oh Lord, I ask for the nation
