1. Ere you left your room this morning

Did you think to pray?

In the name of Christ, our Saviour;

Did you sue for loving favour;

As a shield today?


O how praying rests the weary!

Prayer will change the night to day,

So, when life seems dark and dreary,

Don’t forget to pray.

2. When you met with great temptation

Did you think to pray?

By his dying love and merit

Did you claim the Holy Spirit

As your guide and stay?

3. When you met with great temptation

Did you think to pray?

Did you plead for grace, my brother;

That you might forgive another

Who had crossed your way?

4. When sore trials came upon you

Did you think to pray?

When your soul was bowed in sorrow,

Balm of Gilead did you borrow

At the gates today?

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
