Bowing before the Throne of Grace
In earnest humble prayer,
Our innermost needs are satisfied
As our Savior meets us there.
The turbulent storms may not cease,
The valleys may still be deep,
But, God’s grace is all sufficient-
His joyous blessing we reap.
Let us pray not for an easy road,
Free from trouble and care,
Lest we should stray from our Lord,
And miss the blessing there.
But, let us pray for a righteous heart,
One pure and clean within-
Revived and ready to serve our God,
Forgiven of all known sin.
Then let us pray for one another,
And diligently intercede,
When the righteous fervently pray,
God hears and meets the need.
Let us bow in prayer for our nation
And all who lead and serve;
Many have sacrificed their lives
Our freedoms to preserve.
And let us pray for the world abroad,
Hearing the desperate cry-
So much hunger and suffering,
We dare not pass them by.
Let us obey the great commission
Sharing the gospel with all,
As we walk in fellowship with God
Responding to His call;
For there’s no other way to prepare
For that Judgment Day,
Than to meet and follow the Master
As we Pray And Obey.
Pray without ceasing.”
“…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
“…Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice…”
(I Thes.5:17; Jas. 5:16; I Sam. 15:22)
