POTD: Not a Pray-er? Start Here…

Maybe you’re not a “prayin’ person” or just don’t know how. This can be your first prayer. He’s listening—so take a deep breath and go for it…

I’ve been waiting for a long, long time
Hoping you’re a friend of mine
If there’s one thing that I need to do
Well, that’s to find out more about you
I have been wandering all of my days
So if you’re there, show me the way

I see people in a world of lies
Staring out through lonely eyes
Watching as the years go by
Knowing they’re living only to die
There must be something missing somewhere
So if you’re listening answer this prayer

I will follow if you’ll lead me
Help me make a stand
If you’ll breathe new breath inside of me
I’ll believe you can, I’ll believe you can

Well, I never really learned to pray
But you know just what I’m trying to say
I don’t want my life to end
Not ever knowing why it began
So if you’ll trust me, I’ll do my best
And I’ll be trusting you for the rest*

Now wasn’t that easy?

Amen.
