          Once I was burdened with many a care;
          Problems too hard for my weak soul to bear;
          Then in God's Word came a message so clear;
          Pray about ev'rything -

            Chorus
            Prayer is a wonderful treasure;
            Prayer is a wonderful thing.
            Blessing all ours without measure;
            So pray about ev'rything (ev'rything).

          Ask of your Father, He loveth to please;
          Unlock His treasure, He gives us the keys;
          Claiming this promise, I dropped to my knees;
          Pray about ev'rything -

            Chorus
            Prayer is a wonderful treasure;
            Prayer is a wonderful thing.
            Blessing all ours without measure;
            So pray about ev'rything (ev'rything).

          Doubting and fretting can only bring shame;
          Worry and fear will dishonor His name;
          Go to your Savior His promise to claim.
          Pray about ev'rything -

            Chorus
            Prayer is a wonderful treasure;
            Prayer is a wonderful thing.
            Blessing all ours without measure;
            So pray about ev'rything (ev'rything).

          Riches in Jesus, abundant and free,
          Needs in our work or whatever it be;
          Ours for the asking! This only His plea.
          Pray about ev'rything -

            Chorus
            Prayer is a wonderful treasure;
            Prayer is a wonderful thing.
            Blessing all ours without measure;
            So pray about ev'rything (ev'rything).
