I Think I Prayed a Lot

Source: spoken personal story


I was down in Florida
To lead the music for a Sunday service
Working with a pickup choir
I was kind of terrified
 
I think I prayed a lot
I think I prayed a lot
I was feeling uncertain (unworthy)
So I think I prayed a lot
 
You get one rehearsal, maybe two,
And I wasn’t in my power
Everybody in that choir knew
I was falling apart inside
 
I think I prayed a lot…
 
The terror’s about
When I lose the connection
When I lose the connection
I think I’m all alone
The terror’s about
When I lose the connection
When I lose the connection
I think I’m all alone
 
I put on my big girl pants
And I showed next morning
You just show up on a wing and a prayer
I said, “Let’s do it,” and we did it
 
Because I prayed a lot…
