On The Wings Of Prayer

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 asks us
to do our best,
Then He will take over
and do 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 to 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.
