Lord Teach Me To Pray ~ Anchored In Him

Please teach me, Lord. . .
I want to know
exactly how to pray.

I need some words
which ones are right?
Please tell me what to say.

I've bowed my head
I've knelt down,
but . . . should I be upright?

I've closed my eyes,
I've raised my hands,
or . . . should I fold them tight?

Do I stand up?
Should I sit down?
Dear Lord . . . what do you like?

Are lights turned on
or are they off?
Maybe . . . candle light?

Wear my glasses?
Take them off?
Be at my desk or table?

Should I whisper?
Speak out loud?
Do I quote the Bible?

What do you think
about the time?
Do You prefer the dawn?

Should I pray fast,
or keep it slow?
Better short . . . or long?

I'm new at this
what are the rules?
I want to do it right.

How do I know
You'll even hear
That I am in Your sight?

And while I sat there quietly,
waiting for some sign,
I heard a gentle voice say . . .

"Oh, dearest child of mine . . .
do you think I really care
about the time of day,
or whether you are standing up,
or kneeling when you pray?"

"I don't care about your posture,
or about the place you choose;
just open up your soul to Me,
I have no other rules."

"Tell Me what is in your heart,
and tell Me what you seek;
tell Me of your sorrows,
and of the things that made you weak."

"Speak to Me in private
about what concerns you most;
I know about your good deeds . . .
You have no need to boast."

"My child, you don't need lessons,
just talk to Me each day;
tell Me anything you want,
dear child, anyone can pray."
