Our prayers are not all answered,
Perhaps it's just as well,
For what is really needed,
We cannot always tell.

One farmer prays for sunshine,
Another prays for rain.
We pray for health and vigor,
The doctor prays for pain.

We pray our cars shall run well,
Mechanics pray they shan't.
You see what task the Lord has,
To know which prayers to grant.

The lawyer prays for errors,
So trouble comes our way.
He'll be on hand to help us,
And then we pay and pay.

The undertaker might not pray,
But if he ever should,
He knows an epidemic's toll,
Would make his business good.

Continue trusting in the Lord,
And don't forget to pray.
You'll find that many answered pleas,
Will come to you each day.
