Praying For You

She must of heard me talking in the next room
Didn’t think she could hear what I was sayin bout you
I was Naming everything you did that hurt me
quick to make a list to carry with me
Tucking her in a little later
She was closing her eyes to say her prayers
10 years old with a heart of gold
She spoke the words and my heart about broke

She started praying for you
She took you to Jesus
The very last thing I wanted to do
She started praying for you
And the love coming from her little heart
Made it the biggest in the room
And it changed me
The day she
Started praying for you


She sits with me on Sundays in the church pew
But I think she’s the one really hearing the truth
It doesn’t take me very long to forget
sometimes It’s me that needs forgiveness
So I wanted to tell you that I’m sorry
I’ve withheld the same grace God’s shown me
A 10 year old with a heart of gold
Taught me what I should’ve already known


I couldn’t believe it
The gift I’d been given
Tears filled my eyes
I got down on my knees and
There I heard Jesus
In the words of a child


She started praying for you
She took you to Jesus
The very first thing I needed to do
She started praying for you
And the love coming from her little heart
Made it the biggest in the room
And it changed me
The day she started praying for you
