If God's in control, why do I worry If God's in control, why do I dread If God's in control i must always remember That He's not done with me yet I look at my life and see all the struggles Daily they come at me from every side Just when I think that I might go under He comes along and strengthens my life It seems that I think I can handle it all My pride says that I just cannot fall Then I see this world crash in around me And I find myself falling down on my knees Shouting Lord, help me please Help me to see your mercy and grace Help me to see the love on your face Help me to lift my hands up in praise To the one who can all my struggles erase Yes, God's in control of the wind and the waves He's in control of the storm and the rain When trials and troubles are all around me The best place I can be is down on my knees Shouting Lord help me please He's not a God who will leave me alone To muddle through trouble all on my own He's full of compassion, patience and peace He'll always be there to comfort me When I cry out Lord, help me please.
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
Time for me to rise To greet the morning light To see a bright sunshine In the eastern sky Time for me to rise To open up my eyes I’ve come to realize You are always by my side So, I will say my prayers And I will lift my praise Glory to the Father Glory to the Son Glory to the Spirit Three in one Praise and adoration Lifted to my Lord I will lift my voice to Him I will lift my hands to Him I will lift my heart to Him Jesus Christ my Lord
