1 Thessalonians 5:17
"Pray without ceasing."

divider

          Ere you left your room this morning,
          Did you think to pray?
          In the name of Christ our Savior,
          Did you sue for loving favor,
          As a shield today?

            Chorus
            O how praying rests the weary!
            Prayer will change the night to day;
            So in sorrow and in gladness,
            Don't forget to pray.

          When you met with great temptation,
          Did you think to pray?
          By His dying love and merit,
          Did you claim the Holy Spirit
          As your guide and stay?

            Chorus
            O how praying rests the weary!
            Prayer will change the night to day;
            So in sorrow and in gladness,
            Don't forget to pray.

          When your heart was filled with anger,
          Did you think to pray?
          Did you plead for grace, my brother,
          That you might forgive another
          Who had crossed your way?

            Chorus
            O how praying rests the weary!
            Prayer will change the night to day;
            So in sorrow and in gladness,
            Don't forget to pray.

          When sore trials came upon you,
          Did you think to pray?
          When your soul was bowed in sorrow,
          Balm of Gilead did you borrow
          At the gates of day?

            Chorus
            O how praying rests the weary!
            Prayer will change the night to day;
            So in sorrow and in gladness,
            Don't forget to pray.
