How Should I Pray, Lord

Written by: MAUREEN LEFANUE

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 www.maureenlefanue.com
