The Mystery Of Prayer}

Submitted by: Irvin Rozier

The act of prayer is surrounded with much mystery

Prayer to God can change the course of history

Men first began to call on God many years ago

This is recorded in Genesis four and 26 you know

I don’t know whose prayer to God was the first

Maybe it was for water to quench a mighty thirst

But I thank the Lord that this one paved the way

So many others who followed can to God pray

Saints’ prayers are full of odors stored in golden vials

Some are ones I prayed during my troubles and trials

Angels add incense to these prayers of the saints

They are presented to God who never slumbers or faints

At times I’ve prayed and the Lord answered right away

At times I’ve prayed and the answer never came my way

But I will keep on praying to God who reigns on high

The answer will come today, tomorrow or bye and bye
