THE CHURCH DOESN'T PRAY

I saw the pews looking emptier and emptier, only a few still faithful still remain, and the church doesn't pray.

The offerings got smaller and smaller, the bills were hard to pay
And the church doesn't pray.

I saw a young lady who lost her way, and found herself pregnant, she's scared of what people will say about her now, many just turn away with their noses in the air, But they don't bother to pray for her!

I saw a young man lying in a casket, who hurt so bad he put a rope around his own neck, because he felt he had NO hope, And the Church doesn't pray.

I saw a man sitting alone in the pew crying, his wife threw him out like yesterdays trash, and now he's all alone, And the Church doesn't pray for him, they largely ignore him.

I see a local church whose people have grown ice cold, and complacent in their faith
Cause they didn't bother to pray.

I have not seen sinners walk the ilse, or heard even a simple alter call in a long time
Because the Church doesn't pray!

and the hurting continue to hurt, the sinners continue in sin, and the blind still lead the blind
Because the Church doesn't pray!

We heard a powerful sermon on the Great Commission, the call to all to Evangelize, and have an influence for Christ in your community. AND THE CHURCH DOESN'T PRAY!

The preacher called for Holy Ghost Revival, we need some fire from above he exclaimed,
And the church doesn't pray!

AND THE LIGHTS WERE TURNED OFF, AND THE DOORS LOCKED!

MANY YEARS OF MINISTRY IS NOW HISTORY!

THE PEOPLE WONDER WHAT HAPPENED?

WHAT ARE THEY TOO DO NOW?

YOU BLIND CHURCH GOER!

YOU WANTED YOUR OWN WAY ON EVERY ISSUE

YOUR OWN STYLE OF MUSIC, THAT FIT YOUR OWN MUSICAL TASTES

YOU COMPLAINED WHEN THE SONG LEADER DID NOT WEAR A TIE

WHEN IT WASN'T DONE YOUR WAY, YOU WITHHELD YOUR TITHES AND OFFERINGS. USING GOD'S MONEY TO PUSH YOUR OWN AGENDA IN THE LOCAL CHURCH.

YOU USED IT TO STAND IN THE WAY OF PROGRESS WHEN THE CHURCH NEEDED A NEW BUILDING IN A NEW LOCATION TO MEET THE NEEDS OF A GROWING CONGREGATION!

BUT YOU DID NOT BOTHER TO PRAY DID YOU??
