Artist - "When My Children Pray" - Loretta Lynn
Some day I'll be strong enough to make the church bells ring,
and when my voice grows steady I can help the choir sing.
Somehow I can be useful so put me to the test.
I know I can't do very much,
but Lord I'll do my best.
Last night just at bedtime, I looked in upon my son.
And the picture I saw as I stood there was surely a blessed one.
Proudly I watched and listened to all he tried to say, cause it makes my heart just burst with pride when I hear my children pray.
And he said, "Dear Lord, I'm just a little boy and I don't know how to pray.
But so many of your people have slowly turned away. Well, maybe there's something I can do to help in your great plans. I know I can't do very much but I'll do the best I can. Couldn't I light the little candles, or maybe sweep the pews.
I'll do anything, Dear Lord, just so long as it's for you. For I can open the doors or dust your sacred stands. I know I could do something, if you'll just hold my hand."
Yes, Proudly I stood and listened to all he tried to say.
And it makes my heart just burst with pride when I hear my children pray.
I know I can't do very much but Lord I'll do my best
ON THE WINGS OF PRAYER
Just close your eyes and open your heart,
And feel your worries and cares depart.
Just yield yourself to the Father above,
And let Him hold you secure in His love.
For life on earth grows more involved,
With endless problems that can't be solved,
But God only ask us to do our best,
Then He will take over and finish the rest...
So when you are tired, discouraged and blue,
There is always one door that is open to you,
And that is the door to The House of Prayer,
And you'll find God waiting to meet you there.
And The House of Prayer is no further away,
Than the quiet spot where you kneel and pray.
For the heart is a temple when God is there
As we place ourselves in His loving care.
And He hears every prayer and answers each one
When we Pray in His name - Thy will be done.
The burdens that seemed too heavy to bear
Are lifted away on the wings of a prayer.
