  • Father God, I'm prayin' to you for somebody
    who knows you Lord but just hasn't
    hasn't been seein' you in the right view lately, Hear me out

    Father, I'm prayin' for a friend he and I are pretty close
    and out of all my friends for this one I'm concerned the most
    He say he readin' daily but he ain't really learnin'
    He been in church but say that he ain't moved by any sermon
    His face weak, he ain't prayed in a week
    he wake up and just weep with his face in the sink Lord
    you gotta help my man, I'm prayin' for him daily
    he ain't sinned but it just seem as if he goin' crazy
    He say he feelin' trapped, can't even head up
    the mall coz every lady's half-dressed temptin' him to lust and fall
    He keep the TV off, videos just make him feel
    that he ain't really nothin' without money, girls and shiny wheels
    The other day he told me that he felt less a man
    coz he ain't have a five-year plan or a piece of
    land and man it's crazy coz his family think so much of him
    plus he got a godly wife who always showin'
    love for him but he's strugglin', even though he talk to me
    I tell him what to do but he don't listen when he oughta' be
    I'm scared for him coz there's people that look up to him
    he got some younger siblings who been changed by
    what he's done for them but is it done for him
    Lord don't let it be, if he don't wanna talk to you then
    Father hear from me, is it done for him
    Lord don't let it be
    if he don't wanna talk to you then Father hear from me

    Yeah, I'm prayin' for you, yeah, I'm prayin' for you
    Yeah, I'm prayin' for you, yeah, yeah, I'm prayin' for you

    God, his condition is worsen since we were
    last conversed and I'm with him now and he ain't
    doin' well and this I'm certain
    He say he tryna' trust you, doesn't wanna disgust
    you but he was in the mist of sinners
    and did not discuss you and just today his anxiety's
    got the best of him, he knows Christ but
    for hours refuse to rest in Him
    he's not the best of men but Lord
    I know he really loves you and I can't understand
    why lately he's not thinkin' of you
    People trust this dude, you could crush this dude
    Father he needs more of you I pray you touch this dude
    what can I say to him? I'm determined to pray for him
    Father empty and brake him I pray you'll just have
    your way with him, coz there's a change in him
    and the effects are strong, I pray you open up his
    heart before the next song and when he gets home
    I pray he'll open up the sixty-six book love
    letter you wrote and soak it up coz he ain't
    hearin' You and he ain't feelin' me and God
    I know it's killin' You because it's killin'
    me and matter of fact there's somethin' else
    he's concealin' see, the person that
    I've been prayin' about is really me

    Yeah, I'm prayin' for you, yeah, I'm prayin' for you
    Yeah, I'm prayin' for you, yeah, yeah, I'm prayin' for you Writer/s: Le Crae Devaughn Moore, Tony Shepherd
