Traveling on My Knees

Sandra Goodwin, Source unknown

Last night I took a journey To a land across the seas;I did not go by boat or plane,I traveled on my knees.

I saw so many people thereIn deepest depths of sin,But Jesus told me I should go,That there were souls to win.

But I said, "Jesus I cannot goAnd work with such as these."He answered quickly, "Yes you canBy traveling on your knees."

He said, "You pray; I'll meet the need,You call and I will hear;Be concerned about lost souls, Of those both far and near."

And so I tried it, knelt in prayer,Gave up some hours of ease;I felt the Lord right by my side While traveling on my knees.

As I prayer on and saw souls savedAnd twisted bodies healed,And saw God's workers' strength renewedWhile laboring on the field.

I said, "Yes, Lord I have a job,My desire Thy will to please;I can go and heed Thy callBy traveling on my knees."
