Watchman On The Wall
By Rita Broden
When I wake up at 3 a.m.
And sleep cannot be found
I’m learning that it’s at that time
To hit the battleground.
The need for prayer is very great
Within this day and hour
It’s my duty and an honor
For behind my prayer there’s power.
As my prayers go up to God above
And through that intercession
God the Father meets prayer’s needs.
With so many things to pray for
As instructed by God’s Word
There’s satisfaction just in knowing
That every prayer is heard.
If I wake at any hour
I will answer duty’ s call
For I have come to realize
I’m a watchman on the wall.
