Don’t force your prayers

1. Don’t force your prayers:
God wants us to be honest,
Telling him exactly
What we need.

2. Don’t force your prayers:
God wants us to speak simply,
So let us always follow
His Son’s lead.

3. Don’t force your prayers:
God wants us to be childlike,
Spontaneous, unceasing,
And unplanned.

4. Don’t force your prayers:
God wants us all to trust him,
For he will always hear,
And understand.
