Praying You Home

Friday, May 17, 2019

I have a cousin that I led to Jesus Christ a few years ago. She has started down a slippery slope. I wrote this song for her from the bottom of my heart. I changed her name to protect identity.
I hope this encourages you, that your loved one out there is chosen by God. He is watching. protecting, and guiding them. Your prayers have power-the power of God! Your spiritual battles are seen. Continue to fight. "But the LORD stood with me and gave me strength."

Dedicated to Julie. The door is always open!

Praying You Home
------------------------

1. Your hands are in the fire,
You don't know about the danger.
Clueless the world's a liar,
And Satan is the Slayer.
So sure you're firm, but you're not.
The ground's shaking beneath you.
Empty dreams are all you've got.
How can I break through?

(CHORUS) I am powerless to change your mind.
I am unable to stop the time.
But there's one thing I'll do,
Because I do love you,
I am praying you home.

2. Deep down, you're scared to be,
Left out, ignored, and alone.
What'll it take to make you see,
On you, God's love has shone?
Countless tears have fallen,
Each one carries the hope,
Your heart will stop the hidin',
And that you'll come home!

(CHORUS) I am powerless to change your mind.
I am unable to stop the time.
But there's one thing I'll do,
Because I do love you,
I am praying you home.

(BRIDGE) Is your heart shattered?
Is the road long and dark?
I don't know the answers,
But I know that you are loved.
So I won't stop
hoping...
watching...
believing...and praying...praying...praying...
PRAYING YOU HOME!
