On My Knees
True Stories of God’s Faithfulness
On My Knees is the personal journal of a woman who, together with her family, served God in China. Her revelation of how God answered her prayers for protection is breathtaking, but even more profound is the assurance that God cares about our every need—even the “small stuff.” A wonderful read for those who wonder if God hears them.
Originally written in 1931, now in a beautiful new pocket sized leather edition.

About the Author
Rosalind Goforth was born in 1864 near London, England, but her family moved to Canada within a few mere months. Her father raised her to be an artist, to which she devoted herself fully. But God had other plans, including for her to meet Jonathan Goforth and be his wife in missionary labors among the Chinese.
Converted at age 12 during a revival meeting in Toronto, some eight years later she made it a focal point of prayer, that the Lord would bring her a husband who was wholly given up to Him and His service. After becoming acquainted with Jonathan Goforth, he asked “Will you join your life with mine for China?” She did not hesitate to answer affirmatively. After two years of gospel labors in the East End slums of Toronto, they went. They remained there until her homegoing to the Lord in 1942.
