Panic or prayer?

Panic or prayer?
by Joel Howard

My request too oft has been a demand
my worry like panic has been
instead of seeing you as a faithful friend
instead of actually praying!

Devils' lies have inspired me to take my stand
and challenge your affections and where we've been
instead of holding to what you've given
my faithful, faithful friend!

So when silence is all that holds me back
from doubting you, and claiming lack,
then silence will be my best friend, O Jesus!

And if panic can be now deterred
by denying myself a single word
I'll love you when nothing is heard, O Jesus!

I will choose prayer over doubting,
prayer over panic,
prayer over Satan any day!

And when in the waiting
I can be found praying
then patiently I'll be found there, O Jesus
