86 - Did you think to pray?
 
1 Ere you left your room this morning,
Did you think to pray?
In the Name of Christ our Savior,
Did you sue for loving favor,
As a shield today?
 
Refrein Oh, how praying rests the weary!
Prayer will change the night to day;
So when life seems dark and dreary,
Donít forget to pray.
 
2 When you met with great temptation,
Did you think to pray?
By His dying love and merit,
Did you claim the Holy Spirit
As your guide and stay?
 
3 When your heart was filled with anger,
Did you think to pray?
Did you plead for grace, my brother,
That you might forgive another
Who had crossed your way?
 
4 When sore trials came upon you,
Did you think to pray?
When your soul was bowed in sorrow,
Balm of Gilead did you borrow
At the gates of day?
