Somebody just look back over your life and
How many of you know?
Prayer changes (I heard that)
Prayer changes (I know that)
Prayer changes (I heard that)
Prayer changes (I know that)

Knowing that, that was no way for me to live
Way too young to endure such misery
And the more I prayed for sunny days it seemed to rain
(He hit me) no reason at all
(He hit me) my God, sometimes I'd fall
And I'd take up for him
And pray get rid of him
Hitting those books
He's out my life
Got peace of mind

Prayer changes (oh it changes)
Prayer changes things (said I know)
Prayer changes (it changes)
Prayer changes things
I was a freshman in college and uh
I had all the skills it took to make it
And the coach came to me
Said if you don't get your grades up
Man as tough as I was I broke down and cried
Knows that basketball is my life
(Chemistry) I gave my all
(English) so many flaws
My future, could not see
And gave up on all my dreams
And the pastor began to preach
When he said I can do all things
And for me that was enough
All the way to an A plus

Prayer changes (prayer)
Prayer changes things (oh)
Prayer changes (things)
Prayer changes things
Me and my wife had a few problems
Listening to family members and so called friends
We were separated at least for a month or two
And I was out there doing wrong too
Putting each other down
We would curse each other out
And almost lost my life
My wife
When we said there was no way
Planning another wedding day, I tell you
Prayer changes (it changes)
Prayer changes (prayer changes)
Prayer changes (change)
Prayer changes (prayer changes)

But that's okay, cause there's nothing God can't achieve
Cause who the Son sets free, is free indeed
All you have to do is take this family life for example
Four kids now, cause they just had twins
She's a lawyer, married with one child now
And man he's got his hands full
Now he's playing for the Chicago Bulls
Prayer changes (I'm a witness yeah)
Prayer changes (prayer changes)
Prayer changes (you can't go on)
Prayer changes (changes things)
Prayer changes (in the middle of the storm)
Prayer changes (cause it changes things)
Prayer changes (prayer changes)
Prayer changes (prayer changes things)
Prayer changes (even if you're doing wrong)
Prayer changes (if you're put out your home)
Prayer changes (if you can't find a friend)
Prayer changes (feel you just can't win)
Prayer changes (you're really going through)
Prayer changes (Heaven's got a hold on you)
Prayer changes (when it seems you can't go on)
Prayer changes (hold on it won't be long)
Prayer changes (drinking or doing drugs)
Prayer changes (even in the music field)
Prayer changes (prayer will change)
Prayer changes (prayer will change)
Somebody just look back over your life and
How many of you know?
Prayer changes (I heard that)
Prayer changes (I know that)
Prayer changes (I heard that)
Prayer changes (I know that)

Knowing that, that was no way for me to live
Way too young to endure such misery
And the more I prayed for sunny days it seemed to rain
(He hit me) no reason at all
