The Burden of a Sigh

145 Prayer Is the Soul's Sincere Desire : 2 — Prayer is the burden of a sigh,
The falling of a tear,
The upward glancing of an eye
When none but God is near.
I was singing this song in Sacrament meeting recently. This particular verse spoke to me clearly, that when I am too tired or weak to pray formally, my sighs and tears have been acknowledged as prayers. How dear these penned words are to me. It is a miracle and blessing to know that my burdens have been carried by my Savior, that my sighs are less frequent and deep. My tears are now more tears of joy than sorrows. Yet, those tears are prayers as well. My Savior has held me closely, has caught my tears in his hands and has comforted me and given me the peace and serenity I so desperately needed. I give thanks to Him daily in both word and deed, sighs and tears.

Amazing    
"I don't remember this song at all... But it answers some of my questions as to how I prayed when I couldn't pray! How I knew I was praying I just didn't understand how I was praying. Thank you!!

"Now brethren, the time has come for any one of us who is so involved to pull himself out of the mire, to stand above this evil thing, to “look to God and live” (Alma 37:47). We do not have to view salacious magazines. We do not have to read books laden with smut. We do not have to watch television that is beneath wholesome standards. We do not have to rent movies that depict that which is filthy. We do not have to sit at the computer and play with ographic material found on the Internet."
