why do we pray

why do we pray Lord why do we pray 
do we need a little help to find our way
out of wilderness to a better place
are we begging the Father to show us the Way

why do we pray why do we pray 

are we lighting a candle
are we closing our eyes
are we down on our knees
asking God to bring peace of mind

are we begging and pleading
for some healing to be done
Do we need a miracle to happen 
and some mercy to come

are we even aware that God is right here
and we can always come to terms with ourself 
if we take time to be aware 
that we can talk to God and share our cares

yes miracles do occur
and prayers can be heard 
but sometimes when they don't 
we have to see the bigger picture here

can we embrace life come what may
with  it's moments of joy
the good and the bad things 
and whatever happens each day  

Can we learn to pray always
and to talk to God as our friend 
to love the Father and Mother
and commune with them within

can we walk in the steps of the Teacher 
and become His instrument of love
to learn here on earth 
til we graduate to heaven above 

thank you God for each and every day
and lead us to live with love and pray
for us be kind in what we say
and shine your light forth to show us the way
