God Will Lift Up [Jahar’s] Head

One of my favorite things to do while praying for Jahar is to play some songs that remind me of him and then replace his name where it’s needed. Exhibit A: “God Will Lift Up [Jahar’s] Head” by Jars of Clay.

Through knowing that Jahar is suffering from his many, many gunshot wounds, I’ve really come to see this song as truly comforting just picturing God lifting up Jahar’s head through the “waves and clouds and storms.” He hears Jahar’s sighs and counts his tears.

One Response to God Will Lift Up [Jahar’s] Head

  1. Bri says:

    “Through waves and clouds and storms, He gently clears the way
    Wait because in His time, so shall this night
    Soon end in joy, soon end in joy”

    I pray that God would heal Jahar completely and bring him to salvation—for God’s glory and Jahar’s joy. 🙂
