Pray

I had never heard of Kendall Payne before today. This song is amazing. Listen to the whole thing here; lyrics are below.

I will pray for you now, you have been my faithful friend
While the road we walk is difficult indeed
I couldn't not ask for more than what you've already been
Only that you would say these prayers for me
May your heart break enough that compassion enters in
May your strength all be spent upon the weak
All the castles and crowns you build and place upon your head
May they all fall, come crashing down around your feet
May you find every step to be harder than the last
So your character grows greater each stride
May your company be of humble insignificance
May your weakness be your only source of pride
What you do unto others may it all be done to you
May you meet the One who made us
And see Him smile when life is through
May your blessings be many but not what you hoped they'd be
When you look upon the broken
May mercy show you what you could not see
May you never be sure of any plans you desire
But you'd learn to trust the plan He has for you
May your passions be tried and tested in the holy fire
May you fight with all your life for what is true
I have prayed for you now all of my dear and faithful friends
But what I wish is more than I could ever speak
As the way wanders on I'll long to see you once again
Until then, would you say these prayers for me?
Oh, that you would pray for me

  1. Oh Beck! This is an amazing song and it sure struck a chord. I am totally going to refer to it to keep me on track. The part that says, "What you do unto others, may it be done unto you"That is such a good one to remember, especially on a bad day.Thank for sharing this!
