Back Down on My Knees

by | Jun 4, 1999 | Poem, Prayer

Here I am, again, Lord,
Back down on my knees.
But, the things I need to pray about
Just don’t come easily.  

You said You’d lift my burdens,
Soothe my pain and misery.
So, here I am, again, Lord.
I’m back down on my knees.  

Now, I could pray a million prayers,
Just like I’ve done before,
Because I know you would listen to each one
And never close your door.  

And, when the heartaches, I’ve been facing,
Just won’t set me free,
I know to look for consolation
Back down on my knees.
