Teach Us Lord
Oh Lord, teach us how to pray,
What to ask and what to say,
Bringing before You our loved ones and neighbors,
Certain problems, aims and strenuous labors.
Teach us to be slow in asking, swift in praise,
To seek in all circumstances Thy precious face.
Then we shall walk secure,
Surviving all the attacks and surely endure.
May we kneel down at home or in a place far away
Speaking the sentences You will teach us how to pray.
Amen.
