Do I Ever Pray?

I found this poem in the March, 1986 issue of Beacon Lights.

 

I often say my prayers,

But do I ever pray?

And do the wishes of my heart

Go with the words I say?

I may as well kneel down

And worship gods of stone,

As offer to the living God

A prayer of words alone.

For words without the heart,

The Lord will never hear;

Nor will He to those lips attend

Whose prayer is not sincere.
