TEACH ME TO PRAY
Show me how to pray Lord,
To communicate with You.
To bring to You my wants and needs,
But first my praises too.
Teach me how to praise You.
Give me the words to say.
To say how much You mean to me.
Teach me how to pray.
I want to say I love You,
How grateful that I am,
For all that You have done for me,
For helping me to stand.
Without Your help I'm nothing, Lord.
Without You where would I be.
It's You who floats my tiny boat,
Upon life's stormy sea.
But words aren't all that's needed,
To pay You what You're due.
Teach me how to live my life,
In subjection just to You.
Let my life style be my prayer.
Give me strength and courage too,
The wisdom to know right from wrong,
Firm confidence in You.
Let me know when it's You who speaks.
Help me to know Your voice,
Let me hear and understand,
To make the proper choice.
Let my life give You glory.
Help me to show the stuff,
That it takes to serve You well,
For mere words aren't enough.
