Pray Without Ceasing
Sometimes we know not what to pray
we fall to our knees too burdened to say
a single word, or a breath to take
frustration and fears, tears cascade
O Lord, how do we make it through today?
The prayer that is earnest, even in haste
is the prayer God hears more than anything
and He will quiet us with His love
no matter the words or
just an utterance from our tongue.
We need not be vocal, we need not lament,
(though sometimes we do I admit)
the heart that seeks God above all else
is the prayer that will always prevail.
Pray without ceasing, all the day long
pray in your spirit with thanksgiving and song,
pray to your Father, He’ll make you strong.
Don’t worry, don’t waver, believe He will do
all the things you have asked Him to.
In your belief, go boldly to His throne
keep praying my friend, making your requests known.
He’ll never leave you, He knows what you need,
pray my dear friend, pray in faith and believe.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
