I did not post anything yesterday, but my mom and dad shared something with me that I think you will enjoy! I was going to post yesterday but time got away from me again.

Remember how I am alwaysThe_Versatile_Burl_Ives!_cover saying prayer is just a conversation with God? Well, they shared this old song with me that was originally written by Burl Ives in 1961. The name of it is Royal Telephone.  The lyrics are below and the You Tube recording is attached to this post. The Burl Ives vhqdefaultideo is just screen shots of the album and does not show him actually singing it, you just hear his voice. His voice is always smooth as silk, too.  Also, I have attached another You Tube Video of Jimmy Little singing this same song.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this and I will be back to post the next story in the Prayer series soon. Hopefully tomorrow. It will be about another time when God provided for Israel in the desert. I believe we will be spending quite some time with Moses and these “stiff-necked” Israelites. However, there are so many lessons to be learned from studying them. I am challenged by this task but I am ever so grateful and humbled that God trusts me to tell you what He wants to tell you. So, I look forward to studying and bringing you the information about more conversations with God and Moses and Aaron (Prayer Time). It promises to be an exciting journey! Thanks for coming along.

Now, here are the lyrics below and the videos are below the lyrics. Thanks for being patient as I make my way back to the Prayer series. Enjoy!


Central’s never busy, always on the line
You can hear from heaven almost any time
‘Tis a royal service, free to one and all,
When you get in trouble, give this royal line a call.


Telephone to glory, O what joy divine!
I can feel the current moving on the line;
Made by God the Father, for his loved and own
We may talk to Jesus, thru this royal telephone.

There will be no charges, Telephone is free
It was built for service just for you and me.
There’ll be no waiting on this royal line,
Telephone to glory, always answers just in time.

Fail to get the answer; Satan’s crossed your wire,
By some strong delusion, or some base desire.
Take away obstruction, God is on the throne,
And you’ll get the answer thru this royal telephone.

If your line is ‘grounded’ and connection true,
Has been lost with Jesus, tell you what to do.
Prayer & faith and promise, mend the broken wire
Til’ your soul is burning, with the Pentecostal fire.

Carnal combinations cannot get control.
Of this line to Glory, anchored in the soul
Storm and trials cannot disconnect the line,
Held in constant keeping by the Father’s hand divine.
