"My Prayer" is a 1939 popular song with music by salon violinist Georges Boulanger and lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy. It was originally written by Boulanger with the title "Avant de Mourir" in 1926. The lyrics for this version were added by Kennedy in 1939. Glenn Miller recorded the song that year for a number two hit and The Ink Spots' version featuring Bill Kenny reached number three, as well, that year.[1] It has been recorded many times since, but the biggest hit version was a revival in 1956 by The Platters.[2] This version reached number one on the charts and was featured in the 2008 film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, as well as the 1985 film Mischief and the 1999 film October Sky. Billboard ranked this version as the number-four song for 1956.[3] The Ink Spots' version of the song was featured in the 1992 movie, Malcolm X. The song also became a tango in the Italian version by Norma Bruni and Cinico Angelini's orchestra (1940), "Sì, voglio vivere ancor!".[4]
