Place of Prayer

"Hearken unto the cry and the prayer which Thy servant prayeth before Thee… Hear thou from Thy dwelling place, even from heaven… My God, let, I beseech Thee, Thine eyes be open, and let Thine ears be attentive to the prayer that is made in this place" (2 Chronicles 6:19,21,40).  "Unto Thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens" (Psalm 123:1).  "The ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD" (Proverbs 5:21).  "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 5:16). 

The place of prayer is at the throne
Where God inclines to us His ear. 
It is a place that is well known
To all His children who draw near. 

Above the galaxies in space,
Beyond the very highest star,
God dwells, yet hears us in this place,
And He draws near to where we are. 

His ears attentively have heard
The feeblest prayer that we have prayed. 
Before our thought becomes a word,
Our heart's desire is displayed. 

O Lord, we've found the place of prayer  
Is near to those whose heart You touch,
For with the righteous anywhere,
The fervent prayer avails much.
