We Pray For Those Who Do Not Pray

We pray for those who do not pray!
Who waste, O Lord, salvation’s day;
For those we love who love not Thee—
Our grief, their danger, pitying see.

Those for whom many tears are shed,
And blessings breathed upon their head;
The children of Thy people save,
From godless life and hopeless grave.

Hear fathers, mothers, as they pray
For sons, for daughters far away—
Brother for brother, friend for friend—
Hear all our prayers that upwards blend.

We pray for those who long have heard,
But still neglect Thy gracious Word;
Soften the hearts obdurate made
By calls unheeded, vows delayed.

Release the drunkard from his chain,
Save those beguiled by pleasure vain,
Set free the slaves of lust, and bring
Back to their home the wandering.

The hopeless cheer; guide those who doubt;
Restore the lost; cast no one out;
For all that are far off we pray,
Since we were once far off as they.

Words: C. Newman Hall, 1878.

  1. I can’t imagine life without prayer! I pray every day for our country as there sadly seems to be such division and hate in it these days.
