Cry to the Lord with your prayers
He hears you wherever you are
Tell Him your plans and your dreams
He’ll take you to the stars
Do you need healing today?
Is your body in sickness or pain?
Cry out to Him and be healed
He’ll cover you with His grace
Do you need direction today?
Do you seek to know His will?
Cry out and ask Him to lead
Then just be quiet and still.
Do you need deliverance today?
Does sin have a hold on you?
Repent and turn from your way
My God will rescue you
Do you need understanding today
For decisions that you may face?
Trust that the Spirit will come
With words of assurance and grace
He hears every word you say
He knows every trial and test
Just wait on the Lord and be still
Your prayers always bring His best.
I saw it coming, make no mistake
The enemy comes just to kill and to take
He tries to destroy us every day
We must be wary of His crafty ways
Don’t turn your back, don’t run and hide
But stand by the gate that will never subside
He cannot go past the place where He dwells
The church will not lose to the gates of hell
Stand strong in the Lord In the power of His might
His word and His Spirit will not lose this fight
As long as you stand where He is in sight
The enemy runs from the Lord’s great Light
The place where you fight is down on your knees
Giving the Lord all your struggles and needs
He wants to help you but He must hear your plea
Cry out with your troubles and then let them be
The Lord will take over and bring victory
Over all of your trials and all your dis-ease
Then rise up, give Him glory, for a sweet sense of peace
He’s won the battle because I found my knees
When you wake up in the morning brew your coffee
Have a muffin, or banana or some toast
Make sure all the house around you is in order
Take a shower, brush your teeth and out the door
Wait a minute, somethings missing in that sequence
Something all of us should do to start our day
There is nothing more important than this one small thing
Take some time down on your knees to pray
Pray for children, pray for neighbors, pray for grandma
Pray for friends that live both near and far away
Pray for pastor and for mayor and for workers
Pray for everything you'll do throughout the day
You see the secret to success is not your bankroll
Not your wisdom, or your power or your fame
It’s not a matter of the place you have climbed to
Your success comes from the times you called His name
The name of Jesus is the key to all your future
The name of Jesus is your peace in every storm
The name of Jesus is a joy you can hold onto
He’s a refuge and a strong and mighty tower
So, when you find that you are rushed and running ragged
And it seems you don't have time to even think
Take a break down on your knees to call on Jesus
And you'll find you have more time to follow Him
He's the way. The truth, the life and He's your answer
To the question of a day that seems too short
Just a little time with Jesus in the morning
Will make the whole day better from the start
