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.
