I Heard My Name in Prayer

Lord it's been a while now since I talked to You
Sometimes we're just in too much pain to say
Just when I thought it too late
I was just too blue
I overheard a friend begin to pray

Lord You know just who I am and where I've been
I know that in Your mercy, You are fair
And when I cannot find the right words to begin
You urged my friend to speak my name in prayer

I stood there barely breathing, as I heard my name
Too stunned to think that anyone would care
Enough to kneel before you, realize my pain
To take the time to call my name in prayer

Lord, someday I'll pray for someone else's day
Sacrificing time with you to share
A friend in need, a friend who's maybe lost their way
A friend whose name that I can say in prayer.
