Lyrics
Teach Me How To Pray

I was in the chapel
Down on bended knee
I heard a tiny little voice
From the pew in front of me
Her voice was like a whisper
In between her cries
I listened to every word
As tears fell from her eyes

My mommy needs a miracle------------------------ {Chorus
I heard the doctor say
She might not make it through the night
Please teach me how to pray
My mommy needs a miracle
Would you help me today
I know you’re out there Jesus
Please teach me how to pray

I know I lay me down to sleep
And thank you for this food
And please bring lots of presents
Cause I’ve been very good
But this is more important
Than any of that stuff
I need the words to ask you
To make it mean enough

My mommy needs a miracle------------------------ {Chorus
I heard the doctor say
She might not make it through the night
Please teach me how to pray
My mommy needs a miracle
Would you help me today
I know you’re out there Jesus
Please teach me how to pray

Turnaround 4 Bars

Modulation from V &C chords

I saw her in the chapel------------------------- {Bridge
On the coming morn
She didn't look as tearful
Or sound so quite forlorn

Mommy made it through the night------------------------ {Chorus
I heard the doctor say
It really is a miracle
That she is here today
Thank you Lord for teaching
And helping me to pray
I know you’re out there Jesus
I only had to pray

I know you’re out there Jesus
I only had to pray
