Teach Me To Pray
16 May 2001

Please teach me,Lord
I want to know,exactly how to pray,
I need some words,which ones are right,
Please tell me what to say.

I've bowed my head, I have knelt down
But should I be upright?
I've closed my eyes,I've raised my hands,
Or should I fold them tight?

Do I stand up,should I sit down?
Dear Lord what do you like?
Are lights turned on or are they off?
Maybe candle light?

Wear my glasses,take them off
Be at my desk or table?
Should I whisper or speak out loud?
Do I quote the Bible?

What do you think about the time
Do you prefer the dawn?
Should I pray fast or keep it slow?
Better short or long.

I'm new at this what are the rules?
I want to do it right,
How do I know you'll even hear?
That I am in your sight.

And while I sat there quietly
Waiting for some sign,
I heard a gentle voice say,
"Oh, dearest child of mine.

Do you think I really care
About the time of day,
Or whether you are standing up,
Or kneeling when you pray?"

"I don't care about your posture
Or about the place you choose,
Just open up your soul to me,
I have no other rules.

Tell me what is in your heart
And tell me what you seek,
Tell me of your sorrows,
And of those things that made you weak."

"Speak to me in private
About what concerns you most,
I know about your good deeds,
You have no need to boast."

"My child, you don't need lessons
Just talk to me each day,
Tell me anything,you want dear child,
Anyone can pray."

Author -- Virginia Ellis
