Lord teach us how to pray aright
With reverence and with fear;
As we, with confidence, unite
And to your throne draw near.
We wither if from prayer we cease –
May we desire to pray;
Let doubts dispel and faith increase,
As we trust you each day.
For you are a mighty God,
Your faithfulness surrounds you;
And you, Lord, are near to us
Who call on you in truth.
You know our thoughts, each word you hear,
Our joys and pains you share;
So help us, Lord, to persevere
And prove the power of prayer.
For you are our Father God,
Your name forever holy;
Your will, Lord, be done on earth
This day, as you decree.
So help us, Lord, your will discern,
That through the Spirit's might
And inspiration, we shall learn
To pray, and pray aright.
