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!!

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "
