HE LIFTS US UP: “To Believe”… A Child’s Prayer

“To Believe”…

I ask you to listen to this song and let this be our prayer for all. So many are hurting around the world! I ask you to join me in prayer for those abused, homeless, and broken. Our prayers will make a difference.

“Too many people on this day
Don’t have a peaceful place to stay
Let all fighting cease that your children may see peace”

To Believe by Matthew Evancho and sung by Jackie Evancho

Before I lay me down to rest
I ask the Lord one small request
I know I have all I could need
But this prayer is not for me
Too many people on this day
Don’t have a peaceful place to stay
Let all fighting cease that your children may see peace
Wipe their tears of sorrow away

(chorus)
To believe in a day
When hunger and war will pass away
To have the hope amidst despair
That every sparrow’s counted
That you hear their cries and listen to each prayer

Let me try always to believe
That we can heal the hearts that grieve
Please help us not ignore
The anguished cries of the poor
Or their pain will never leave

(chorus )
To believe in a day
When hunger and war will pass away
To have the hope amidst despair
That every sparrow’s counted
That you hear their cries and listen to each prayer

(spoken prayer)
Father, as you see, I’m just a child
And there’s so much to understand
But if Your Grace should surround me
I’ll do the best I can
I promise, I’ll do the very best I can

(chorus plus)
To believe in a day
When hunger and war will pass away
To have the hope amidst despair
That every sparrow’s counted
That you hear their cries and listen to each
Prayer
{Hear each cry and listen to each prayer}
Help us do Your will oh Father
In the name of all that’s true
And we’ll see in one another
The loving image of You

Songwriters
EVANCHO, MATTHEW DAVID

    Luke 18:16 – But Jesus called them unto him, saying, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for to such belongeth the kingdom of God.

    May we bring the children to Him wherever they are in their suffering and pray with them pointing them toJesus Christ who loves and cares for them and will answer their call from their heartaches and despair. Amen.
