12. The Power of a Prayer

Into the Light
by Matthew West



 

Dear God, it’s me / Calling out to You / Tonight I’m on my knees / Hoping You’ll come through / This one’s for my dad / Can You help him please / The world’s made him mad / At mom and me / And I’m asking you to bring his heart back home / Oh, the power of a prayer / Mom is all I have / But she’s alone again tonight / They always used to laugh / Now all they do is fight / You know she loves that man / But he’s so far from You / She’s done all she can / But she can’t break through / And she’s 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 haven’t 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

Bass: David Childress / Drums: Dustin Rohrer / Guitars: Tom Bukovac and Court Clement / Piano and B3: Gordon Mote / Background Vocals: Matthew West // Written by Matthew West © 2012 Songs of Southside Independent Music Publishing / External Combustion Music / Songs for Delaney (ASCAP)

Behind the Song:
GERSON’S PARENTS FOUGHT CONSTANTLY. HIS DAD WASN’T A CHRISTIAN. SO THIS LITTLE BOY HAD FAITH, AND BEGAN PRAYING FOR HIS DAD. ONE NIGHT THEIR PASTOR VISITED THE HOME, AND GERSON’S DAD GOT SAVED. I BELIEVE THIS IS A GREAT STORY REMINDING US OF THE POWER OF PRAYERS. - Matthew West
