“I Prayed a Prayer for You”

“I Prayed a Prayer for You”

I prayed a prayer for you
For the hurt I see in you I see in me
It is hard I know to mend a soul
To find a way to console

I prayed a prayer for you
That your heart would mend
Your tears would end
That you would find strength within

I prayed a prayer for you, my friend anew

I prayed a prayer for you
For your shoulder to be strong
To correct all the wrongs
To help us sing a new heart song

I prayed a prayer for you
For your wisdom prolong
For your understanding, nightlong
For your love of God, lifelong

I prayed a prayer for you
My leaders whose hearts are true

I prayed a prayer for me
I prayed for my words to be true
I prayed for my love and esteem for you
I prayed for my friend, my leaders, my church

I prayed a prayer for you…
Please say a prayer for me too
