Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

Power in Prayer

Power in Prayer

On my knees before You

I approach You in prayer,

I sense Your presence, Lord,

I know You are near.


Your radiant face

Shines in my mind’s eye;

You are the Source of life,

For me You chose to die.


All my trials, my Jesus,

I release unto You,

So too all my victories

I place on the altar too.


Everything is Yours,

As my life You bought;

When You shed Your blood,

It was me You sought.


How can I not then follow

When I hear You call? 

All I must release

To my All in all.


Everything You give me,

I then give You everything;

Enthroned in my heart,

Forever You are my King.


The power of Your Cross

Bridges Your heart and mine;

Your blood washes my sin,

 ‘Tis the fount of life divine.


Before You now I kneel,

I humbly bow my head;

Thank You, precious Savior,

That for my life You bled.


To the foot of Your Cross

I travel in my mind;

No stronger, sweeter love

Ever will I find.


Yea, Calvary is on my heart

When I am on bended knee;

I see my sweet Jesus

Bleeding on the tree.


Come here often, Lord,

Yea, I vow to do;

Kneeling here in prayer

I am all the closer to You.


Radiant is Your face,

Sparkling with love Your eye;

How I love You, Jesus,

For me You chose to die.


Your presence, Lord, I feel,

I know You are near;

On my knees before You

I feel Your power in prayer.
