Higher Ground

Today is a trying day for my Sweetheart. I can't be with him physically, but I have gathered prayer warriors and have surrounded him with continual prayer as he faces this troublesome day. So many times this morning I felt like my prayers were somehow inadequate, as if it was the power from my prayer that would fix this. We need God's power the power is not our own. I was sitting here wishing there was more I could do, and I turned on some praise music. Listening to Higher Ground settled me down.

I'm pressing on the upward way
New heights I'm gaining every day
Still praying as I onward bound
"Lord, plant my feet on higher ground."


Lord, lift me up and let me stand
By faith on heaven's table land
A higher plane than I have found
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay
Tho' some may dwell where these
My prayer, my aim is higher ground.


I want to live above the world
Tho' satan's darts at me are hurled
For faith has caught the joyful sound
The song of saints on higher ground.


I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright
But still I'll pray till heaven I've found
"Lord, lead me on to higher ground."
