The Prayer
by Mark Bishop

Album: Fields of Love

"Hard and bitter words...
Words that hide the sunshine like a cold and cloudy day.
Words that pierce the soul and make a heart lose all hope.
It's easy to lose your way, when you don't have love or faith to guide you.
A broken spirit will find no virtue in mercy.
It makes it hard to forgive others... and harder still to forgive ourselves."

All the days of your life... have gone humming along.
Then one day without warning... things go terribly wrong.
Maybe heart-ache will find you. Maybe sickness will come.
Maybe the bankers foreclose... on the old family farm.

Take the boy with no mother... a fever burns in his chest.
With his dad by the bedside... he's all this father has left.
And he thinks about praying... for the faith that he lacks
and for words spoke in anger... he wishes he could take back.

Lord... I know you and I... we haven't been on speaking terms.
That's my fault I reckon.
I've tried to believe but... things haven't gone my way for a long, long time.

It's been so long... and Lord, I miss her so much.
Some days... I can't think of anything else.

And we're losing this farm Lord. It's been in my family for years.
God... if you can hear me... I'm at the end of my rope.

I don't know where to turn... I just...

Please God... don't take my son... he's all I've got.
Please God... please... God forgive me...

Forgive my unbelief... forgive my angry words... forgive me.
