THE ONLY PRAYER THAT MATTERS

Today my eyes
Opened for the very first time
I saw it rather suddenly and I’ll never be the same
It came completely by surprise
Revealing to this heart of mine
A lesson that I might have missed if I never came
Now everything has changed

Chorus
The only prayer that matters
When all is said and done
Is the prayer that the Father fills me
With the pure love of His Son

This badge I wear
Or the way that I cut my hair
This shirt and tie are not why I can see things in this light
It’s the miracle that one so flawed
For once could see a child of God
And love them as He loved them in the garden on that night
He made the sacrifice

Repeat chorus

Losing myself as I plead with the Father
They find their way back home
Begging with all of my heart for their lives
Like I never have for my own

“This is my work and glory…”
“If ye love me feed my sheep”
Love with your heart wide open
And you’ll see the world through me

Today my eyes
Opened for the very first time
I saw it rather suddenly and I’ll never be the same
