It seems to me, things are moving way too fast
I want to take some time and settle down
Make each moment last, with you
Hm mm, that’s what I want to do

A simple prayer is all I need
I lift my hands in praise each day
Get down on my knees
To be with you, that’s what I want to do

My Spirit calls out your name
Help me to remain in your presence Lord
Lead me day by day, help not to stray
I want nothing more
Than your word written on my heart
Your love each day, keep shining through
Capturing my thoughts, of you
Hm mm… That’s what I want to do

My Spirit cry’s out again
Take me as I am
I am not afraid
Living by your grace
, calling on your name
Never been ashamed

Of you, all that you do
The debt you paid, on Calvary
Shed your blood so I could be with you
Hm, mm... That’s what I want to do
Hear my plea, guide me through each day
Where you lead I’ll follow you
, all the way
To be with you,
That’s what I want to do
Hm, mm... That’s what I want to do.

Artist Comments

The lyrics to A Simple Prayer were written while driving early in the morning over a couple days, while being stuck in traffic in Atlanta, Georgia.

Time passes by so quickly, it seems were always in a rush always moving forward with our own plans and
not spending enough quality time  in prayer with the Lord. With traffic at a crawl I started thinking about
my prayer life and my desire to spend quality time in the presence of God.

It seems to me  a simple prayer is all I need, time to lift my hands in praise each day and be thankful for all
the wonderful blessings, God's presence in my life and his unmerited favor and grace.

That's what I want to do, spend quality time in prayer, in the presence of God.

I ended this song with this thought, "If I fall may it be into your arms or on my knees"

My hearts desire is to put my life in His hands, getting a clear perspective on what matter most, serving God with
my life and let His light shine through me, and be a vessel for His Glory. "That's what I want to do"

Prayer is a having a loving relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Having a deep and personal relationship with Him makes all the difference in your life. As a child of God, he hears your prayers, speak to Him as you would a friend.

It's a simple prayer. You can hear his voice through His word, or through a still small voice.

Worshiping God through prayer will bring you closer to Him. It changes our circumstances, it give us peace and joy, it builds our faith and strengthens us, it changes us to be Christ-like.

Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you."
