It took a lot of Prayer
I was running wild like I didn’t have a care,
While momma head was bowed in prayer
Oh I didn’t know what prayer could do,
But momma knew god’s promises true.
Every time I saw her, she was deep in prayer,
Sometimes it takes a lot of prayer to get anywhere.
I would ask her what she was praying for.
She would smile and say, this prayer’s for you.
Well I was as wild as they came acting a fool,
Partying and fighting, man, I thought I was cool.
I was in trouble with the law, just for being me.
I didn’t see the harm.. I was too blind to see.
Momma prayed and prayed to God above;
Trying to save the restless child she loved.
She read her bible and spoke His word,
Trusting God in every promise she heard.
Well it took a lot of prayer to get anywhere.
God heard and answered Momma’s prayer.
And now I know just what prayer can do,
You see the answer is standing in front of you.
