Our father, who are in heaven
I will be thy name, thy kingdom come
Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven
Give us this day, our daily bread
Forgive us for our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
God is tha kingdom, tha power, and the glory
Foreva and eva, hmp Amen

Man I'm prayin' fo help
While I lookin' at the life I left
It's kinda hard not to hate myself
But quiet is kept kill
Right or wrong its just tha way I felt
I might be better off prayin' for death
On my knees I knelt

Still tryin' ta find a way ta except
That ain't a way I can help nobody till I save myself
Technically I'm still a slave myself
I gotta climb out tha grave myself
Man, I played myself

But when I look at all tha fans I touched
I ask how can a man who's done so much, be treated so unjust
'Cause I tried to inspire tha folks
You wanna condemn 'cause they sell dope

Well, man, show 'em tha ropes
Be a fatha or a football coach
A role model Lord, assemble tha hope
Take anotha approach

Instead of testifiyin' against 'em in court
Handcuffin' 'em and closin' tha doe, so they can be worse than befo
Can't you see they only do what they know
And you wonder why they don care no mo
Life ain't fair, I know, but why I'm hated everywhere I go
Next time you wanna compare my flow just know

I'm prayin' fo help
Askin' somebody else to give me a hand
I'm tryin' hard but I am only a man
Man, I'm prayin' fo help
Hopin' somebody else could see what I see
It's like tha hood only matter ta me

They got me prayin' fo help
Hopin' somebody else can carry tha torch
I'm all alone wit no kind of support
While I was prayin' fa help
Realized I'on need nobody else
If God wit me I can do it myself
Tired of just prayin' fo help

I know its only one king, one thing, one being
Only somethin' I believe without seein'
And with all my faith
I pray somehow, some way, regardless of what anyone say
I believe one day

That I'ma change my life, get right
Start livin' like Christ, to tha end of my fight
I'ma be defendin' my strife
Till somebody come and shut off my lights

I ain't neva gon quit
No matta how difficult its gon get
And you can bet whateva on this
I'm foeva gon spit

Harder than niggas hatin' on tip
You can take away and place it on tip
I double my load
Carry it as tha trouble unfolds

Hold yo'lls, and I bet I don't fold
Put that on my soul
If it take till I'm a hundred years old
Bet I'm reachin' everyone of my goals

No, I'm prayin' fo help
Askin' somebody else to give me a hand
I'm tryin' hard but I am only a man
Man, I'm prayin' fo help
Hopin' somebody else could see what I see
It's like tha hood only matter ta me

They got me prayin' fo help
Hopin' somebody else can carry tha torch
I'm all alone wit no kind of support
While I was prayin' fa help
Realized I'on need nobody else
If God wit me I can do it myself
Tired of just prayin' fo help

Hah, just so many times
I don wished I could change my mind
Change my life and leave tha game behind
And it's been so many days

I don prayed I could find a way
Find tha heart and tha time to say
Only so many are blessed
Wit so many chances, so many checks
So many fans, wit so many arrests

And it's been so many deaths
So many prisons wit niggas in there
And tha system keep playin' them to tha left
Man, so many tests
So many hatas love seein' ya stress

But tribulations come wit being tha best
Still it's so many who flex
Singin' 'bout texts
When they greener than Shreks

Sellin' dreams, never seen in tha jets
That's why I'm seen as a threat
So many stripes, off tha streaks of my vest
When so many rappers get so little respect

Now niggas faith on tha shelf
'Cause of tha cards that a nigga was delt
Or tha heart that a nigga don delt
So many niggas don left out of da hood

Instead of givin' back they stayed fo they self
So many playin' they self
Instead of readin', educatin' they self
The ones that don even pray fo they self

Got me prayin' fo help
Askin' somebody else to give me a hand
I'm tryin' hard but I am only a man
Man, I'm prayin' fo help
Hopin' somebody else could see what I see
It's like tha hood only matter ta me

They got me prayin' fo help
Hopin' sombody else can carry tha torch
I'm all alone wit no kind of support
While I was prayin' fa help
Realized I'on need nobody else
If God wit me I can do it myself
Tired of just prayin' fo help
