Gordon Bahary offers his thanks to God in this song. We asked Bahary
how important religion was to his music: "To me, kindness and respect goes farther than anything. If they are a result of one's religion, then great. I personally love God, and owe everything I have to him. That song was written during alone time. I just ran the tape and wrote and sang it live, and it was a first take for the most part. I was shy to share that moment, and debated it. Then a few people were moved by it, so I put it on the album. Now I'm glad I did. It also taught me about sincerity and needing to be vulnerable at times in songs."
Bahary added that "A Prayer" was "the most natural and raw" song on Unbreakable
