The Prayers I Forget
My Father remembers the prayers I forget,
He isn’t distracted by all that is near;
He waits till the timing is perfectly set,
And then He reminds me, “You asked for this, dear.”
So when I am anxious about a request,
I’ll think how He’s answered the prayers I forgot;
I’ll trust He’ll remember and give me what’s best
Then lay down the worry and fear that I brought
How sweet to consider what love and what care
Are evidenced freely in answers to prayer!
There’s no one so tender with whom to compare
God’s goodness, compassion, and grace – each so rare.
