So glad that You’ve married breathing and prayer
Left alone I’d know not what to say
But since it is You that made me alive
You have promised to help me to pray
Just as I’m living I’m calling on You
When I breathe I am praying Your name
I inhale the gentle wind ... Je-Ho-Vah
Now my prayer-life cannot stay the same

“For the Spirit of God has made me and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”

Job 33:4
