423 There Is No True Service Without True Prayer

Verse 1

Prayer is true communion with God, has lots of meaning.

It can be seen from people’s prayers

God they’re directly serving.


Pre-chorus

If you take prayer as ceremonial,

then God you won’t serve well.


Chorus

Without prayer, you can’t work.

Prayer brings service, it brings work.

If you’re a person who serves God,

but you’ve never been serious,

not devoted when you pray,

you will fail in serving this way.


Verse 2

It can be said that if your prayers

aren’t true or earnest,

then God won’t count you, you’ll be ignored.

The Holy Spirit won’t work in you.


Pre-chorus

If you take prayer as ceremonial,

then God you won’t serve well.


Chorus

Without prayer, you can’t work.

Prayer brings service, it brings work.

If you’re a person who serves God,

but you’ve never been serious,

not devoted when you pray,

you will fail in serving this way.


Bridge

If you often come to God and pray,

it proves you take Him seriously.

If you work yourself and do not pray,

and behind His back do that and this,

you’re doing your own thing,

(you are not serving God,)

you’re doing your own work.

(Condemned then, are you not?)


Verse 3

It seems like God you have not blasphemed,

done no disturbing,

but doing your thing is interrupting.

By nature, you resist God.


Chorus

Without prayer, you can’t work.

Prayer brings service, it brings work.

If you’re a person who serves God,

but you’ve never been serious,

not devoted when you pray,

you will fail in serving this way.
