A PRAYER, by            
First Line: Dear lord, teach me how to pray
Last Line: "not my own . . . My father's will."
Subject(s): Prayer

Dear Lord, teach me how to pray
That I might progress day by day
In Thy truth alway.

May I become as a little child
In thought, so meek and undefiled,
Thus delivering from errors wild.

And the answer came
In the quiet still,
"Not my own . . . My Father's will."
