Lyrics

Prayer Is Your Friend
Lyrics and music by Elizabeth Ragsdale

Verse 1
I shied away from prayer
As if I were the one to repair
What’s sinful or sick.
In the light I learned that Love’s aware
Of nothing broken to fix.

Verse 2
I doubted my meek appeal
Would be tough enough to heal.
Was my thought correct?
I awoke to see that it’s not me,
But Truth that resurrects.

Prechorus
In sacred surrender I defeat the foe,
The one who accuses, the one who refuses.
It’s not that hard when I know—

Chorus
Prayer is my friend.
I welcome her in.
With one voice we go out
Faultless and free of all doubt.

Verse 3
I stood alone, aloof.
Oh why should my ego move
Beyond my pride?
I found in sweeter solitude
The grace to let Mind guide.

Prechorus
In sacred surrender defeat the foe,
The one who accuses, the one who refuses.
It’s not that hard when you know—

Chorus
Prayer is your friend.
Welcome her in.
With one voice you’ll go out
Faultless and free of all doubt.
Prayer is your friend. Prayer is your friend.
