Teach Me to Pray

Albert Reitz

It happened that while Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught his disciples.”

Luke 11:1 nasb

“Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray” —
This is my heart-cry day unto day.
I long to know Thy will and Thy way;
“Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray!”

Living in Thee, Lord, and Thou in me,
Constant abiding, this is my plea.
Grant me Thy power, boundless and free,
Power with men and power with Thee.

Power in prayer, power in prayer,
Here ’mid earth’s sin and sorrow and care;
Men lost and dying, souls in despair —
O give me power, power in prayer!

My weakened will, Lord, Thou canst renew;
My sinful nature Thou canst subdue.
Fill me just now with power anew —
Power to pray and power to do!

Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray!
Thou art my Pattern day unto day,
Thou art my Surety now and for aye;
Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray.
