The YES Prayer

Ten Prayers God always says Yes to

The YES Prayer
by Anthony DeStefano

With praise for all you are, Lord
and thanks for all you bless;
Lord, grant these ten petitions
with your eternal Yes:

Please show me that you're there
when I can't see your face;
Send troubled souls my way
their wounds I will erase.

Let me see with your eyes
my mind with your thoughts fill;
but more than wisdom give me
the strength to do your will.

Bless me with abundance
then put me to the test;
Gladly will I give you
much more than I possess.

Send me your tranquility
In troubled times and calm;
with loving arms sustain me
through suffering and harm.

Forgive me for my sins
though legion they may be;
when death and evil triumph,
bring good from tragedy.

But most of all reveal
the meaning of my life
the purpose of my glories
the reason for my strife
my destiny in Heaven
no tears to flow again
My God please grant me all;
In Christ Our Lord,

Thank you Lord

Give me your Eyes

Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black top
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breath in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
All those people going somewhere,
Why have I never cared?

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Ones that are far beyond my reach.
Give me your heart for the ones forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what's underneath
There's a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He's out of work
He's buying time
All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?

I've Been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way you see the people all along

Evening Prayer
