“To Touch the Heart of God” By Ruth Elaine Schram

Prayer Category


This song has an incredible melody with lyrics that give a profound sense of coming close to God in prayer. Here are the memorable concluding lines of several of the stanzas:

To touch the heart of God, this is prayer.

To move the hand of God, this is prayer.

One of the most moving both musically and lyrically songs on prayer that I have ever heard. It was sung by our choir at church during worship, then by special request at our Sunday evening prayer service by a soloist. It’s one of those songs that brings you close to God and directly to his feet as we think about the incredible gift of prayer.
