♫ Somehow the Savior seems a little nearer when I kneel down to pray,
And fellowship with Him a little dearer, when I kneel down to pray.
A secret place of quiet meditation when I kneel down to pray
Increases all the joy of that relation when I kneel down to pray.
I tarry there with Christ a little longer when I kneel down to pray,
and rise to face the world a little stronger, when I kneel down to pray.
I know that He will always hear me, for He is never far away.
And yet He seems a little closer to me when I kneel down to pray. ♫
(From an old gospel song)
Were it not for prayer, I would be a Basket Case!
The state of our country and the world,
my burden for my church,
the needs of my friends,
and my own inadequacies are too much to deal with on my own!
These signs seen on our recent visit to the Holy Land Experience
are my "prayer calls".
They remind me of the needless pain I bear when I
"do not carry EVERYTHING to God in prayer."
(from What a Friend We Have in Jesus)
