12. The Power of a Prayer

Into the Light
by Matthew West



 

Dear God, itís me / Calling out to You / Tonight Iím on my knees / Hoping Youíll come through / This oneís for my dad / Can You help him please / The worldís made him mad / At mom and me / And Iím asking you to bring his heart back home / Oh, the power of a prayer / Mom is all I have / But sheís alone again tonight / They always used to laugh / Now all they do is fight / You know she loves that man / But heís so far from You / Sheís done all she can / But she canít break through / And sheís begging You to bring his heart back home / Oh, the power of a prayer / Just a whisper in the dark / Spoken from a broken heart / Holding on to one last strand of faith / Somewhere in the world right now / A desperate soul is crying out / Hoping Jesus really hears us when we pray / Dear God, do You / Recognize my voice / I havenít talked to You / Since I was a little boy / But tonight I heard my son / Pray for his old man / It made me come undone / Made me understand / That only You can bring my heart back home / Oh, the power of a prayer

Behind the Song:
GERSONíS PARENTS FOUGHT CONSTANTLY. HIS DAD WASNíT A CHRISTIAN. SO THIS LITTLE BOY HAD FAITH, AND BEGAN PRAYING FOR HIS DAD. ONE NIGHT THEIR PASTOR VISITED THE HOME, AND GERSONíS DAD GOT SAVED. I BELIEVE THIS IS A GREAT STORY REMINDING US OF THE POWER OF PRAYERS. - Matthew West
