How Should I Pray, Lord

How Should I Pray, Lord? How Should I Pray, Lord? I need you to explain ‘Cause I’m not familiar with prayer; It’s not been my past domain. Do I just talk to you, Or do you need some fancy words? Should I sing to you instead, With some accompanying chords? How Should I Pray, Lord? Is there a special time? Can I talk to you anywhere? Do you want my words to rhyme? I can’t pray the fancy words Of preachers from a pulpit. I’m just a simple person, With simple language to submit. How Should I Pray, Lord? Do I need a prayer shawl? Because I’m a Christian, Your gift of repentance I wish to enroll. I ask your forgiveness And mean it from my heart, But I don’t know how to pray, Lord; Your grace to impart. How Should I Pray, Lord? Please teach me today. I am a complete novice And need to know your way. If I’m too familiar, I ask your royal pardon. How Should I Pray, Lord? Teach me how to pray and petition. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue

    aww that isa great poem, I used to wory how to pray but Godhears every prayer even before we speak he knows what is on our hearts, I rememerb when some one asked Jesus in the bible how should wepray, and he replied when you pray pray like this and Jesus taught them the Lords Prayer. how wonderful God bless you. prayer is very powerful and God listens and responds in the way thats best for us.
