Prayer Corner

May 2021

Several years ago, Prayer Ministry designated May as a month of prayer at Emmanuel. This Prayer Corner is different from the previous issues, because this is prayer month, so please pray these prayers. Pray them daily.

Traveling On My Knees

Last night I took a journey
To a land across the seas
I didn’t go by plane-
I traveled on my knees.

I saw so many people there
In bondage to their sins,
And Jesus told me I should go,
That there were souls to win.

But I said, “Jesus, I can’t go.
To the lands across the seas.”
He answered quickly, “Yes you can-
By traveling on your knees.”Prayer: 

He said, “You pray, I’ll meet the need,
You call, and I will hear,
It’s up to you to be concerned
For lost souls far and near.”

And so I did, I knelt in prayer,
Gave up some hours of ease,
And with the Savior by my side
I traveled on my knees.

As I prayed on, I saw souls saved,
And twisted persons healed,
I saw God’s workers’ strength renewed
While laboring on the field.

I said, “Yes, Lord, I’ll take the job,
Your heart I want to please,
I’ll heed your call and swiftly go
By traveling on my knees.”

Dear Jesus:

I whisper into the darkness.
I feel your present near.
I have some things to share with You.
I know that You will hear.

I bring my cares before You,
And I lay them at Your feet.
I ask You, please watch over them;
Each child, oh so sweet.

They’re young and very precious.
They have so much to learn.
Lord Jesus, please protect them.
Direct them at each turn.

And when each child is fully grown,
I’ll bring them to You still
Asking for Your blessings,
And praying for your will.

Prayer:  There are so many things going on in our lives, that we ask for your guidance:  health issue violence in our country that we have never seen before; the anger we see in government leaders; there are the homeless and the hungry; and most of all, the lost souls. Lord, give direction to help those in need whatever it my be. Use us as we travel on our knees to serve you. In Jesus’ name we pray.
