On the Wings of Prayer

Just close your eyes
and open your heart
And feel your worries
and cares depart,
Just yield yourself
to the Father above
And let Him hold you
secure in His love----
For life on earth
grows more involved
With endless problems
than can't be solved---
But God only asks us
to do our best,
Then He will take over
and finish the rest------
So when you are tired,
discouraged, and blue,
There's always one door
that is open to you---

And that is the door
to the house of prayer
And you'll find God waiting
to meet you there,
And the house of prayer
is no farther away
Than the quiet spot
where you kneel and pray---
For the heart is a temple
when God is there
As we place ourselves
in His loving care,
And He hears every prayer
and answers each one
When we pray in His name
"Thy will be done"----
And the burdens that seemed
too heavy to bear
Are lifted away
on the wings of prayer
