My Prayer

Some beautiful lyrics from singer/songwriter Chris Rice

Fresh page, new pen

Where do I begin?

Words fail, tears come

I need someone

To take the thoughts I almost think

and carry them to God for me


Deep Breath, exhale

Breathe in deeper still

Long sigh, I’m still numb

Is there anyone

Who can find the things I’m barely feeling

And give them wings beyond my ceiling?


Right heart, wrong place

It’s too far to outer space

Sorry, I forgot, You’re right here

I cup my hands around your ear

I feel you smile, You feel my breath

You listen while I whisper nonsense


Simple exchange

Your will, I’m changed

And now my prayer ends

Thank You, Amen.
