Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray

Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray;
This is my heart-cry day unto day;
I long to know Thy will and Thy way;
Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray.
  Living in Thee, Lord, and Thou in me,
Constant abiding, this is my plea;
Grant me Thy power, boundless and free,
  Power with men and power with Thee.
Power in prayer, Lord, power in prayer!
Here ’mid earth’s sin and sorrow and care,
Men lost and dying, souls in despair;
O give me power, power in prayer!
My weakened will, Lord, Thou canst renew;
My sinful nature Thou canst subdue;
Fill me just now with power anew;
Power to pray and power to do!
Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray;
Thou art my pattern day unto day;
Thou art my surety, now and for aye;
Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray.

This new year I want to spend more time in prayer. As I was looking up Bible verses on prayer, this old hymn started going thru my head, so I had to look up the words.

I'm so encouraged today by this song. May our good Lord bless you all & may the Holy Spirit teach us how to pray. Amen.

I have not heard this song in years but this morning the Lord woke me up with this song. Just to go deeper and deeper in Christ Jesus. To have a more affective prayer ministry. Teach me Lord, yes.


United States

Power to pray and power to do. This is what I feel need in last couple of days. Then God gave me this song today! Thank You Lord.

I really and want God to actually teach me how to pray. Are you also one who doesn't know how to pray? Then I dedicate this sound to you. Be blessed.
