I don’t write many songs in the voice of God the Father, but in pondering the questions below, I felt “Pray Always” would be most meaningful if presented as a loving Father in Heaven answering the sincere questions of one of His dear children:
* Are you listening?
* Why aren’t you answering me?
* Do you even hear me?
* Am I doing this “right”?
* I am doing everything I can – why can’t you give me what I need?
* What should I do now? I don’t know what else to do…
In listening to this song, I find I am very comforted. Singing this song is like bearing a tender testimony. It is still one of my favorites.
Lyrics to “Pray Always” (video below) are found under the Musicals tab, in Hidden Treasures. Enjoy!
