416 True Prayer

Verse 1

True prayer is speaking your heart’s words to God.

It’s based on God’s will and His word.

True prayer is feeling, oh, so close to God,

as if He’s in front of you.

True prayer means you have much to say to God,

your heart is radiant as the sun,

you feel inspired by the loveliness of God,

those who hear are gratified.


Chorus

True prayer will bring both peace and pleasure,

the strength to love God rises up,

the worth of loving God is felt;

and all of this will prove your prayers are true.


Verse 2

True prayer is not about formality,

not procedure nor reciting words.

True prayer doesn’t mean to copy others.

Speak your heart and be touched by God.


Chorus 2

True prayer is shown by a heart

that yearns for what God Himself requires,

the will to fulfill in obedience

and to hate all that God dislikes.


Verse 3

If your prayers are to be effective,

God’s words are what you must read.

And only by praying amid God’s own words

will illumination be seen.

And upon the basis of that you have knowledge,

all truths that God says are clear,

having strong faith and a way to practice.

Only this is a prayer that’s true.

Yes, only this is a prayer that’s true.


Chorus

True prayer will bring both peace and pleasure,

the strength to love God rises up,

the worth of loving God is felt;

and all of this will prove your prayers are true, are true.

Yeah, your prayers are true.
