Album: A Restless Heart Christmas (2013)
  • songfacts ®
  • This is one of a couple of brand new songs (the other is "Season of Harmony") penned specifically for Restless Heart's holiday album, A Restless Heart Christmas. "'Santa's Prayer' is about the true meaning of Christmas being overshadowed by commerciality," explained Dave Innis.

    Paul Gregg added: "'Santa's Prayer' was written by some dear friends of mine, one of whom is no longer with us. From the first time I heard it, to the first time we played it live, I knew we had something very special."
