Again, the words of others fill the empty spaces.

This came up on my player on the way home from work, and I had to stop.
The words resonated with me, as Petra songs do from time to time (even
ones like this which I’ve heard over and over again).

Words to “Prayer”, by Bob Hartman and Dino Elefante
Based on 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18, Ephesians 6:18-19, Matthew 6:9-13

First I want to thank You Lord for being who You are

For coming to the rescue of a man who’s drifted far

For calling me to be Your son and calling me to serve

Lord the way You’ve blessed my life is more than I deserve

Keep the ones I love so dearly

Fill their emptiness while I am gone

And fill the loneliness in me

(Chorus)

This is my prayer

Lifted to You

Knowing You care even more than I do

This is my prayer

Lifted in Your name

Your will be done I humbly pray

Let me be the evidence of what Your grace can do

To a generations struggling to find themselves in You

May they come to know the love of God

May their eyes be made to see

Give me the opportunity to share the truth that sets them free

And may unity in all things

Be the banner of Your church

And let revival’s fire begin to burn

As we face the last and final hours

Turn a wayward country back to You

And keep us from the evil that devours

Keep us on the path and lead us through

Keep us in Your light until Your kingdom comes

And our work is done

This is my prayer

Lifted to You

Knowing You care so much more than I do

This is my prayer

In Jesus’ name

Your will be done I humbly pray

This is my prayer
