Watchful and Thankful Prayer

Colossians 4:2

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

If there is one thing that you do this year, I hope that it is prayer that is watchful and thankful.

devote yourselves to prayer
is what the Bible states
and do it with thanksgiving
a tender heart it makes

but also do it watchfully
and do it with much care
and give away the faith you hold
so bountiful yet rare

and do not heistate to tell
your friend or neighbor why
you kneel before the living God
with hands held to the sky

for nothing shall defeat you
if you give it all to God
and nothing will ashame you
when they lay you 'neath the sod

pray with watchful eyes
and pray with thankful hearts
and His joy will be completed
when the Holy Spirit starts
