Gotta Pray

Gotta pray.

Need to pray.

Have to pray.

Don't want to pray.

Should pray.

Ought to pray.

No time to pray.

Too much busy in the day.

Not sure what to say.

Don't know how to pray.

God, are you there?

Do you really care?

I have heard you can make me free.

Do you know me?

I have a hole

Deep down in my soul.

Trying to pray.

Still not sure what to say.

Still don't know how to pray.

Talking to God.

That's how to pray.

He cares.

He listens.

He really is there.

Gotta pray.

Need to pray.

Spirit, help me know what to say.

Gotta pray.

Gotta pray today.

Gotta pray everyday.

Pray. Pray. Pray.

It's not a chore.

This is how I can win this war.

Gotta pray.

God is real.

Need to pray.

Jesus heals.

Want to pray.

Learning to pray.

Finding strength when I pray.

When I pray

God lends me power.

Going to pray

To keep my life from going sour.

Gotta pray.

Need to pray.

Have to pray.

Want to pray.
