Did You Think to Pray?

When I was younger, my family was asked to sing for a church meeting that was for all adults. My mother (who is a very talented musician) prayerfully chose to do and arrangement of the popular hymn "Did You Think to Pray?". Through this experience, I was able to learn more fully the words to this song and then internalize them in a way that I probably never could have done without having to learn it to the level of performing it. These are the words:

1. Ere you left your room this morning,
Did you think to pray?
In the name of Christ, our Savior,
Did you sue for loving favor
As a shield today?
Oh, how praying rests the weary!
Prayer will change the night to day.
So, when life gets dark and dreary,
Don't forget to pray.
2. When your heart was filled with anger,
Did you think to pray?
Did you plead for grace, my brother,
That you might forgive another
Who had crossed your way?
3. When sore trials came upon you,
Did you think to pray?
When your soul was full of sorrow,
Balm of Gilead did you borrow
At the gates of day?

I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father who is always here to listen to us. He WANTS to listen to us! I hope that we can all take the time to talk with him. Let us never forget to turn to our Heavenly Father for help!
