“Close as a Quiet Prayer,” Friend, March 2019

Close as a Quiet Prayer

Quietly = 48–58

Friend Magazine, 2019/03 Mar

1. Moment by moment, by night or by day,

My Heavenly Father is not far away,

And He will be near when I whisper His name.

He is close as a quiet prayer,

Close as a quiet prayer.

2. When I am thankful for blessings He sends,

He smiles as I offer my praises to Him.

And when I’m alone and in need of a friend,

He is close as a quiet prayer,

Close as a quiet prayer.

3. Whether I’m kneeling to seek Him with words

Or silently praying, my heart will be heard.

His love will enfold me; His promise is sure.

He is close as a quiet prayer,

Close as a quiet prayer.

Chorus:

I can pray to my Father anytime, anywhere.

When I call He will always be

Close as a quiet prayer,

Close as a quiet prayer.
