1. Long ago in days of old, stood a man of God we’re told,

As he talked to Elijah that day;

His request he did repeat, standing at Elijah’s feet,

A double portion” I can hear him say.


Give me, Lord, a double portion,

pour Thy Spirit on me,

Thru eyes of faith Thy wondrous works I can see;

But I need Thy helping hand,

In this troubled, sinful land,

Give me, Lord, a double portion from Thee.

2. As Elijah stood that day, to Elisha he did say,

Ask me what I shall do unto thee”

And Elisha then replied, walking at Elijah’s side,

A double portion, let it fall on me.”

3. Lord, I always to Thee pray, just for strength from day to day,

But I see there’s so much to be done,

That I have to kneel a new and this favour ask of You.

A double portion this fight must be won.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
