Rising from Our Knees

Falling to our knees
humbly before our savior
as children seeking
knocking on the doorframe
our petitions to our God

Rising from our knees
comfort in the offering
knowing he will answer
righteous in his actions

We are to act
to live out our faith
waiting with patience
while we pray without ceasing

Trusting in God
the provision of his promise
his answer righteous
consistent with his plan

The timing unknown
but to the creator
but confidence in his answer
he will not deny us
if we bring to him our desires
raised in righteousness
