Somebody just look back over your life and
See where he brought you from
How many of you know?

Prayer changes
(I heard that)
Prayer changes
(I believe that)
Prayer changes
(I know that)
Prayer changes things

Prayer changes
(I heard that)
Prayer changes
(I believe that)
Prayer changes
(I know that)
Prayer changes things

Now I was in a real bad abusive relationship
Knowing that, there was no way for me to live
A young girl like me, raised up in a good family
Way too young to endure such misery
And every night I cry myself to sleep from all the pain
And the more I prayed for sunny days it seemed to rain

(He hit me)
At any given time
(He hit me)
No reason at all
(He hit me)
So, so hard
(He hit me)
My God, sometimes I'd fall

Mama asked what happened to me and I'd take up for him
She said that devil's a liar and pray get rid of him
And now I'm going to school, hitting those books
I'm doing fine, he's out my life, I'm not confused
Got peace of mind, man I tell you

Prayer changes
(It changes)
Prayer changes
(Oh it changes)
Prayer changes
(I'm a witness)
Prayer changes things
(Said I know)
Prayer changes
(It change)
Prayer changes
(It change)
Prayer changes
(I'm a living witness)
Prayer changes things

I was a freshman in college and uh
I had just made it on the basketball team
I had all the skills it took to make it
But on my grades, I would get nothing but all D's
And the coach came to me
And had a talk with me about my career

Said if you don't get your grades up
I'm gonna have to sit you down this year
Man as tough as I was, I break down and cried
'Cause everybody knows me
Knows that basketball is my life

(Algebra)
I studied hard
(Chemistry)
I gave my all
(Calculus)
Oh my God
(English)
So many flaws

Playing ball didn't look to good for me
My future, could not see, I had lost all my beliefs
And gave up on all my dreams
Then I went to church on Sunday
And the pastor began to preach
It was like he was talking to me
When he said, I can do all things

In Christ that strengthens me and for me that was enough
Now that I went from a D all the way to an A plus
I tell you prayer changes things

Prayer changes
(Prayer)
Prayer changes
(It changes things)
Prayer changes things
(Oh)
Prayer changes
(Said it changes)
Prayer changes
(Things)
Prayer changes
(I'm a living witness that)
Prayer changes things

Me and my wife had a few problems
We thought that nothing could solve them
Listening to family members and so called friends
Man I tell you that's just how the devil creeps in

We were separated at least for a month or two
She was wilding in the clubs
And I was out there doing wrong too
And we would walk around the house
Putting each other down
I mean right in front of the kids
We would curse each other out

Then I was in a bad accident and almost lost my life
And guess who was there for me, my wife
Now ain't it funny how He makes a way
When we said there was no way
I'm out the hospital and back at home
Planning another wedding day, I tell you

Prayer changes
(It changes)
Prayer changes
(Prayer changes)
Prayer changes
(Prayer changes)
Prayer changes things
(Things, I'm a witness that)
Prayer changes
(Change)
Prayer changes
(Prayer changes)
Prayer changes
Prayer changes things

Now all of these things were happening in one family
But that's okay, 'cause there's nothing God can't achieve
I don't care what the problem in your life may be
'Cause who the Son sets free, is free indeed
And if you didn't know, now you should know
All you got to do is take this family's life for example

Now mom and dad are married again
Four kids now, 'cause they just had twins
Little sister all grown up now
She's a lawyer, married with one child now

Two years, big brother's out of college
And man he's got his hands full
Blessed with skills, blessed with knowledge
Now he's playing for the Chicago Bulls

Prayer changes
(I'm a witness)
Prayer changes
(Prayer changes yeah)
Prayer changes
(Prayer changes)
Prayer changes things
(Woah when it looks like)
Prayer changes
(You can't go on)
Prayer changes
(I know that prayer)
Prayer changes
(Changes things)
Prayer changes things

Prayer changes
(In the middle of the storm)
Prayer changes
(Prayer will calm)
Prayer changes
('Cause it changes things)
Prayer changes things
(Yeah)

Prayer changes
(Prayer changes)
Prayer changes
(Prayer changes)
Prayer changes
(Prayer changes things)
Prayer changes things
(Woah)

Prayer changes
(Even if you're doing wrong)
Prayer changes
(All your money's gone)
Prayer changes
(If you put out your home)
Prayer changes things
(Yeah come on)

Prayer changes
(If you can't find a friend)
Prayer changes
(At your journey's end)
Prayer changes
(Feel you just can't win)
Prayer changes things
(Woah woah)

Prayer changes
(Seems you're going through)
Prayer changes
(And trouble's chasing you)
Prayer changes
(Heaven's got a hold on you)
Prayer changes things
(Yeah)

Prayer changes
(When it seems you can't go on)
Prayer changes
(And all your strength is gone)
Prayer changes
(Hold on it won't be long)
Prayer changes things
(I know prayer is gonna change)

Prayer changes
(Drinking or doing drugs)
Prayer changes
(Even if you're running the streets)
Prayer changes
(Even in the music field)
Prayer changes things
(Rock, pop or R&B)

Prayer changes
(Prayer will change)
Prayer changes
(Prayer will change)
Prayer changes
(Prayer will change)
Prayer changes
(Prayer will change)
Said I'm a living witness
(Prayer will change)
