Dear Lord, teach me to pray always

*****
Dear Lord, this now is my prayer to you
I come to you so that I may come even more
Mine is a desire to abide in you always
That in your sanctuary forever I shall be
Dear Lord, teach me to pray at all times
*****
Teach me not to wait until it’s too late
Let my eye not be closed when I see danger
Let not my knee bend only when am at loss
Nay, but at all times, in all circumstances
Teach me now and always to seek you
*****
Forgive my lazy body that loves sleeping more
Forgive my intellect that undermines prayer life
Forgive the heart that will seek her own comfort
Forgive this me of the sin of prayerlessness
Teach now; body, soul and mind to pray always
*****
Teach me Lord to pray not only of a want
But to pray to have you more and less of me
Teach this my soul to abide in thy presence
Help me see the joy of your fellowship
Teach me Lord to pray continually
*****
What more would a man achieve without you?
What rather would I be doing in my quiet time?
It’s abiding in you I seek that you remain in me
As I come to you, I seek to abide with you at all times
Sovereign Lord teach me now and always to pray.
