I Traveled On My Knees


Last night I took a journey to Israel across the seas;
I did not go by boat or plane, I traveled on my knees.

I saw so many people there with scars and wounds within,
But God told me that I should go - there was oil to pour from Him.

I replied, " Lord, I cannot go and work with such as these, "
He answered quickly, "Yes you can, by traveling on your knees,"

He said, " You pray, I'll meet their need, you call and I will hear,
Be concerned abut the fate of those both far and near, "

And so I tried it, knelt in prayer, gave up some hours of ease,
I felt the Lord right by my side while traveling on my knees.

As I prayed on and saw them helped, and the badly wounded healed,
I saw God's workers' strength renewed while laboring on the field.

I said, " Yes, Lord, I have a job- my desire Thy will to please,
I can go and heed Thy call by traveling on my knees,"

- Adapted from a poem by Sandra Goodwin


  1. Elin, May God takes you to all the interesting place far and wide as you traveled on your knees. May God's presence go with you.

    1. Thanks Nancy....hopefully the knees dont get sore..but with the Lord on my side guiding me I should persevere through :)
