Mighty to Save: a song and a prayer

Yesterday, I encountered this Prayer for the Week:

Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted by Satan:

Come quickly to help us who are assaulted by many temptation; and, as you know the weaknesses of each of us, let each one find you mighty to save; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The Collect for the First Sunday in Lent B (BCP)
(Imported and used in the Divine Hours)

I’m experiencing the hope and reality of this prayer via a powerful a brilliant praise anthem, Mighty To Save.

It may seem like a song for only big events and big churches, but I think the song works anywhere, as long as an acoustic guitarist and the right vocalists can carry the day with a good groove and necessary attention to dynamics.

Give it a listen, and tell us what you think? Tomorrow I’ll post some points of review about the text, which I like for several reasons.
