How To Pray…
I’ve decided to go offline this week to prepare as best as I can for my speaking engagement in Denver on Thursday.
But I wanted to share with you an amazingly moving song by an artist named Kendall Payne. It’s called Pray. The lyrics are brilliant, convicting, difficult and deep. Her voice is gorgeous and the music…beautiful.
As we begin to pursue revolution in our lives, these are the kinds of prayers we need to be praying for one another.
The song starts at 1:57. Enjoy…
If you’re unable to watch the video right now, please at least read the lyrics I’ve added at the end of this post.

I will pray for you now, for you have been my faithful friends
While the road we walk is difficult indeed
I could not ask for more than what you’ve already been
Only that you would say these prayers for me
May your heart break enough that compassion enters in
May your strength all be spent upon the weak
All the castles and crowns you build and place upon your head
May they all fall, come crashing down around your feet
May you find every step to be harder than the last
So your character grows greater every stride
May your company be of human insignificance
May your weakness be your only source of pride
What you do unto others may it all be done to you
May you meet the One who made us
And see Him smile when life is through
May your blessings be many but not what you hoped they’d be
And when you look upon the broken
May mercy show you what you could not see
May you never be sure of any plans you desire
But you’d learn to trust the plan He has for you
May your passions be tried and tested in the holy fire
May you fight with all your life for what is true
I have prayed for you now all of my dear and faithful friends
But what I wish is more than I could ever speak
As the way wanders on I’ll long to see you once again
Until then, would you pray these prayers for me?
Oh, that you would pray for me
