  • Dear Mr. God,
    I'm writin' You today
    Because it seems like lately
    I've forgotten how to pray
    I know I don't need this pen
    But everybody likes to get
    A letter now and then
    I'm sorry for not writin' more

    'Cause I need you
    But it's hard to see
    Why anyone as big as You
    Needs anything from me
    You know You're there
    So how ya been?
    I'm alright but I can't lie,
    Sometimes I feel like givin' in
    You're all I've got

    Dear Mr. God,
    Sometimes I wish
    You lived next door
    So over coffee You could tell me
    What You started all this for
    I guess you saw
    That sunrise yesterday
    Thanks for the reminder
    That You're never gone away
    It gives me hope
    Telling You what You already know

    I need you
    But it's hard to see
    Why anyone as big as you
    Needs anything from me
    You know You're there
    So how've You Been?
    I'm all right but I can't lie
    Sometimes I feel like givin' in

    Dear Mr. God,
    Tell me do You ever cry
    When we forget to thank You
    For the good things in our lives?
    I know I can't always understand
    Why You do the things You do
    But I know in the end
    I'll make it through
    If I stand next to You
    So here I am

    Dear Mr. God,
    I'm writin' you today
    Because it seems like lately
    I've forgotten how to pray Writer/s: BRAD WARREN, BRETT WARREN
