Our Prayer To Thee

Acknowledging God in the start of our day is an important habit to develop. Meditation, reflection, and prayer is a big part of our day and life at Strategic Prayer Ministries. We believe that quality time with our Heavenly Father remains important in the midst of all the busyness of our daily schedule. Take a moment to stop by Strategic Prayer Ministries to see how we can partner together to fulfill God’s purposes for your life and for our world.

This prayer is for those who are absolutely sure that everything hinges on the success of their prayer, and therefore strive to impress the keeper of mercy with their religious zeal, deep devotion, frequent prostrations and the multitude of other religious rituals.

Of all the various religions in the world today, Christianity is the most widely spread. In fact, there are more Christians than there are people on Earth. And yet, although we spread our message far and wide, we are nowhere near as unified as we could be.

Let us pray. Oh God of the Spacious Firmament, Creator of Angels and Archangels, Of the Heavens and of Earth, Of the Sea and all that is in them; Thou art great, 0 Lord, And in thy power it lies To heal our sicknesses, And drive far from us The gloom of Hell.

Our Prayer To Thee

We pray to thee, our Heav’nly Father. With grateful hearts and fond emotion.

We thank Thee for our great Exemplar – Thy beloved and atoning Son –

Who gave Himself as sacred ransom, That we could live again with Thee!

Our joy is full, our song so gladsome; Renew our faith and hope in Thee

We pray to Thee, our Heav’nly Father, With thankful Hearts and adoration.

We thank Thee for our loving Savior, Who redeemed us from death and sin;

He gave to us His truth to brighten our path, to help us walk His way.

To love and serve, to lift and lighten the lives of all who will obey.

We pray to Thee, our Heav’nly Father with gratitude and deep devotion

For loving faith and endless splendor – Eternal glory – bound as one!

We pray for mercy and forgiveness and hope to know Thy holy will.

We yearn for Thee, we plead in meekness, Thy trust in us may we fulfill.

Our Prayer To Thee

The much-anticipated 2019 album Let Us All Press On: Hymns of Praise and Inspiration features 14 powerful hymns beautifully arranged to support and elevate the gospel messages contained in the text. 

Contained in the album is the hymn “Our Prayer to Thee,” with text written by Russell M. Nelson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Nelson wrote the words in 2003, and it was first performed as a hymn in April of that same year at the Church’s general conference, where it was matched to a tune by composer Joseph Parry.

President Nelson attended the recording session when his hymn was being recorded in the Salt Lake Tabernacle in May 2018. Nelson sat among a sea of quilts and blankets, brought in by Choir members to absorb and dampen some of the echo and reverberation that occurs in the Tabernacle. According to the Choir’s general manager Scott Barrick, “The quilts are like an audience—but with no coughing and talking.” Nelson enjoyed the recording process and took a few moments to speak to the members of the Choir and Orchestra after the recording was complete.

1 Hear my prayer, O Heavenly Father,
Ere I lay me down to sleep;
Bid Thy angels, pure and holy,
Round my bed their vigil keep.

2 Great my sins are, but Thy mercy
Far outweighs them everyone;
Down before Thy cross I cast them,
Trusting in Thy help alone.

3 Keep me, through this night of peril,
Underneath its boundless shade;
Take me to Thy rest, I pray Thee,
When my pilgrimage is made.

4 None shall measure out Thy patience,
By the span of human thought;
None shall bound the tender mercies
Which Thy Holy Son hath wrought.

5 Pardon all my past transgressions;
Give me strength for days to come;
Guide and guard me with Thy blessing,
Till Thine angels bid me home.

Amen.
