About "In Prayer"

We're often told, "If you want to speak to God, pray! If you want God to speak to you, read your scriptures."

I've had many sweet experiences with prayer and reading my scriptures; including the feelings expressed in this song. As a youth, myself, I went through these feelings and as a parent, I have watched my children go through these same emotions. (I think everyone, at some time or other, longs to feel that love, guidance and acceptance from a sure, Divine source.)

This song was written as I reflected on my children and watched them try to find peace within themselves and gain testimonies of their own.

It is my testimony that God lives! He does hear and answer our prayers. We can feel His love as we draw close to Him and try to live worthily to have His Spirit to be with us.

Lyrics to "IN PRAYER"

At times I sit and ponder, as through life I seem to wander, "Is God there? And does He care for me?"
And so I begin my plea, as I approach on bended knee...

1. Oh Father, canst Thou hear my call?  I offer my all.  Hear my cry, it is I, Thy child.
   Oh Father, here's what I've been told in scriptures of old, Seek Thy face, feel Thy grace in prayer.

(Father) "My child, I am listening, Be still and feel I care.
             You're not alone.  I'll guide you home.  You'll know how much I care, in prayer!"

2. My Father, look what I behold our prophets have told: humbly pray, learn God's way, obey.
    Dear Father, Thou canst hear me still; I offer my will.  All my heart I impart in prayer.

(Father) "My child, I am listening, Be still and feel I care.

Child (or both together):
   (Child)    I'm not alone.  He'll guide me home.  I feel His presence there, in prayer!"
   (Father) You're not alone.  I'll guide you home.  You'll know how much I care, in prayer!"
