Hymn: Did You Think To Pray aka Ere You Left Your Room This Morning

I learned this hymn by listening to some recorded church services within the past six months or so. It is always nice to learn a new old song! :) This hymn contains some great truths and encouraging reminders.

It has been on my mind recently. Last week a family friend of ours died from injuries sustained in a bad accident. We heard about the accident on Wednesday. He had been life flighted to the hospital and was in critical condition. Thursday morning I was listening to some hymns and this hymn began to play. It was very comforting to be reminded that our prayers are powerful. The Lord saw fit to call this brother home to heaven on Thursday night. His family still needs lots of prayer. His parents had to bury their first born child at just 29 years old. I can't imagine that kind of pain. I know that Jesus can feel their heartache, though, and He can provide comfort and healing.

Hebrews 4:15
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

 Do you know this hymn? Do you sing it at church? Did you learn as a child? I'd love to hear from you in the comments below! :)

I can't imagine what kind of grief that family must be experiencing in losing their son. They will be in my prayers! Thanks for sharing this hymn here; I don't remember for sure where or when I learned this hymn, but it's pretty familiar to me, so maybe I've known it for a long time. It's been awhile since I played it, though, so it was nice to see it on here.
