How to Pray
Oh God, teach us how to pray,
Especially when grievous trials are ours.
Help our anger to fade so that we may
Discover the blessing of praying powers.
In deep distress, what shall we say?
Yes Lord, we know Your Word and do believe.
What, then, to ask in an acceptable way ...
Oh Father, address our questions, our unbelief.
We admit that You are needed every hour, every day.
Why, then, so often we do it alone?
Grant us in Jesus to think, to plan, to pray.
Bless our thoughts, our deeds and our home.
