  1. Pray and Fast

From The Recordings Html

Jesus tells us all how to pray, and how to fast, in this song taken from Matthew 6: 5-8, and 16-18. The main message..."do it in secret, and He'll reward you openly." I've personally come to love the melody of this song (smile)

Lyrics

Pray and Fast
Fast and Pray
These are My Instructions

When you pray
You shall not be like the hypocrites
For they love to do their praying
In the churches and on the street corners
That they
May be seen by Men
Assuredly I say to you
This is then
Their Reward
When you pray
You shall not be like the hypocrites
For they love to do their praying
In the churches and on the street corners
That they may be seen by Men
Assuredly I say to you
This is then
Their Reward

But You
When you pray
Go in to your room
And when you have closed the door
Pray to your Father
Who is in The Secret Place
And your Father
Who sees in Secret
Will then reward you
Openly

When you pray
Please do not use repetitions
Like the heathen do
For they think that
Many words
Makes them heard by men
Much better
But do not be like these men
For your Father knows
What you have need of
Even Before you Ask
When you pray
Please do not use repetitions
Like the heathen do
For they think that
Many words
Makes them heard by men
Much better
But do not be like these men
For your Father knows
What you have need of
Even Before you Ask

But You
When you pray
Go in to your room
And when you have closed the door
Pray to your Father
Who is in The Secret Place
And your Father
Who sees in secret
Will then reward you
Openly

When you fast
You shall not be like the hypocrites
With their countenance looking sad
And who disfigure their faces
For they do this
So men may know they are fasting
Assuredly I say to you
This is then their reward
When you fast
You shall not be like the hypocrites
With their countenance looking sad
And who disfigure their faces
For they do this
So men may know they are fasting
Assuredly I say to you
This is then their reward

But you, when you fast
Anoint your head
And be sure that you
Wash your face
This pleases the Father
Who is in The Secret Place
And your Father
Who sees in Secret
Will then reward you
Openly.
