The Power of a Prayer Lyrics

by Matthew West

dear God it's me
calling out to you
tonight I'm on my knees
hoping you come though
this ones for my dad
can you help him please
the worlds made him mad
and mum and me
and I'm asking you to bring his heart back home
ohhh ohhh
ohhh ohhh

the power of a prayer
mama's all I have
but shes alone again tonight
they always used to laugh
now all hey do is fight
she says I love that man
hes so far from you
shes done all she can
but she cant bring him through
and shes begging you
to bring his heart back home

ohhh ohhh
ohhh ohhh
the power of a prayer

ohhh ohhh
ohhh ohhh
the power of a prayer

just a whisper in the dark
spoken to a broken heart
holding on to one last strand of faith
somewhere in the world right now
this song is crying out
hoping Jesus really hears us
when we pray

dear God
will you recognize my voice
I havent talked to you
since I was a little boy
tonight I heard my son
pray for his old man
made me come undone
made me understand
that only you can bring my heart back home

ohhh ohhh
ohhh ohhh
the power of a prayer

ohhh ohhh
ohhh ohhh
the power of a prayer
