I was so touched and inspired by this poem about the Ministry of Prayer by Annie Lind Woodworth, a ...
Thank you for being a part of the Prayer Canopy. I pray we can keep growing together as we serve the Lord in the Ministry of Prayer.
As it did for me, may this poem encourage and ignite you to learn and serve even more in this “high, holy vocation”!
There’s a holy, high vocation, needing workers everywhere;
It’s the highest form of service, it’s a ministry of prayer.
No one need stand idle, longing for a place in which to share,
Active service for the Master, there is always room in prayer.
In these days of tribulation, wickedness pervades the air;
The battles we’re engaged in must be won through fervent prayer.
There’s no weapon half so mighty as the intercessors bear,
Nor a broader field of service than the ministry of prayer.
Do you long to see the millions, who are perishing today,
Snatched as brands plucked from the burning? Do you long, yet seldom pray?
Come and join the intercessors! Laurels, then, someday you’ll wear;
For there is no higher service than the Ministry of Prayer.
