That’s Why….

I happened to see this video today and thought, although not everyone prays, there are many people going through the things mentioned in this video (lyrics). I am including the lyrics for those that may not want to watch the video or care for the group. I, myself, pray; I believe in it and that is my choice-but that doesn’t mean I expect you to nor do I ask you to.. πŸ™‚

But in these lyrics, in this song, it touches on so many things happening in our world these days. Bullying, babies having babies, people just.not.getting.along. Drama is everywhere! But what if each person took it upon themselves to be the best they could be? What if each day you said, did, gestured something nice to another human being?

“That’s Why I Pray”

Man on the TV’s gone insane, everybody’s just laughing

People ’cross the world holding on
The earth caved in, the ocean came down crashing
My neighbor lost his house ’cause he can’t find a job
Don’t you dare pledge allegiance, don’t you dare speak of God
Speak of God
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

Now I’m begging for forgiveness
I wanna make a difference even in the smallest way
I’m only one person, but I can feel it working
I believe in better days
That’s why I pray

Some stupid video posted as a joke, somebody’s life gets ruined
Out of everything we can create
Where is the cure to keep us safe from losing
Babies having babies ’cause their parents are always gone
Somehow we have forgotten how to make a house a home
How to make a house a home
Oh! Oh! Yeah! Yeah!

I’m begging for forgiveness, I wanna make a difference
Even in the smallest way
I’m only one person, but I can feel it working
I believe in better days
That’s why I pray, yeah
That’s why I pray, yeah

These demons from my past haunt me every night
And I just can’t get through it
If I could forget them on my own, I’ll let go and just move on
But heaven knows I am only human

And that’s why I pray, yeah yeah
That’s why I pray, I pray, I pray, I pray

Yes I’m begging for forgiveness (I’m begging for forgiveness)
I just wanna make a difference (Just wanna make a difference)
I believe (I believe) in better days
That’s why I pray

Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. From empty nesters to living with our oldest and 2 grandchildren while our house is rebuilt after a house fire in 10/2018 my life is something new each day.

Great post, Becky. I took your advice, too, and left the negativity group. It was hard, but I did it, and it’s a huge relief.

I absolutely believe in the power of prayer. I just started going back to church after being SERIOUSLY hurt by a church about 4 years ago. It’s a long story that I might get into some day but I’d love to share with anyone who wants to hear it. That said, a few weeks ago when I really felt a pull to resume worship, the message was on praying PERSISTENTLY and SPECIFICALLY for what you need or want. At the time we were having a hard time getting our house rented and kind of freaking out. I started praying specifically… Read more »

Great song! I love what you said here: “Drama is everywhere! But what if each person took it upon themselves to be the best they could be? What if each day you said, did, gestured something nice to another human being?” I wholeheartedly agree and I do pray!

I am not huge on praying either but I do like this song! I believe the song can have a different meaning and impact for everyone – prayers or not. πŸ™‚

Leila – don’t be embarrassed. There’s no “right” way to pray. I love opening up my heart and talking to God. I don’t worry if it’s the right or wrong way. I know He hears me and that’s all I need πŸ™‚

If I could like this a thousand times, I would. I can’t even tell you enough how much I like this.

Once you have your prayers answered – you just have a totally different viewpoint on praying. However they aren’t always answered in a way you’d like – and the reason they aren’t — you often don’t see till your old and grey and finally understand.

I’m a HUGE Big and Rich fan (more of a John Rich fan, he’s much less….odd lol). I love John Rich’s voice, and their songs make you think, which goes a long way for me. I’m tired of mindless drivel being played day in and day out, and when I hear their songs, I always smile :). Thanks for sharing!

I am embarrassed to admit that I don’t know how to pray, but I connect with my Higher Power through song and singing. Another great song is “What if She’s An Angel”. Gets me every time and really puts things into perspective. πŸ™‚ I will have to actually listen to this Big and Rich song when I get home!
