I'm On My Knees Again - Poem

I wrote this in one sitting late at night a couple of weeks back when some friends of mine were going through a particularly hard time. So grateful for prayer, and for the things God does through it.

I'm On My Knees Again

So much pain, so much fear,
Sorrowed by the words I hear;
People needing love so dear,
I'm on my knees again,

Anguished moans and troubled sighs,
Worried souls and tear-stained eyes;
Cursing satan for his lies,
I'm on my knees again.

Heavy heart for darkened days,
Searching God to know His ways;
Deadened hopes I pray to raise,
I'm on my knees again.

Desperate people, desperate friend,
Each one yearning for an end;
Hoping God, a light would send,
I'm on my knees again.

Crying soul and crying heart,
Grief for them tears me apart;
Wishing them a brand new start,
I'm on my knees again.

Need an answer, need a key,
Praying God will help you see; 
Know how you were made to be,
I'm on my knees again.

Praying hard, and praying long,
Whispered words and hopeful song;
His promises are never wrong,
I'm on my knees again.

Grace I find, and mercy too,
A future and a hope for you;
God's eternal love so true,
I'm on my knees again.

Healing mind, renewing soul, 
God will bless and make you whole;
Restoring all the devil stole,
I'm on my knees again.

Come to feel, come to know,
Just how much God loves you so;
See His peace and freedom flow,
I'm on my knees again.

Constant thought, constant prayer,
Trust in God, none can compare;
I pray and know He's working there,
I'm on my knees again.

Despite the pain, despite the fear,
Loving words from God I hear;
I know He's there, I know He's near...
For, I'm on my knees again.
