I fully know that I must pray,Not just at times, but every day. But the sin That dwells in me,Makes praying A difficult activity. I enjoy more Doing other things, Than kneeling down Before my King. I pray out of duty And with hypocrisy,Not with delight, And for God’s glory.Truly to prayer I’m naturally allergic,Left to myself, My life will be tragic! O my Lord, With Thy disciples I say,“Jesus Christ, Please teach me to pray
