Somebody's Prayin'


          
Yesterday in church, my son sang this song during the offering.  No one except he, my husband, and I fully understood the significance of this song.


Somebody's prayin', I can feel it
Somebody's prayin' for me
Mighty hands are guiding me
To protect me from what I can't see
Lord, I believe, Lord, I believe
Somebody's prayin' for me.

Angels are watchin', I can feel it
Angels are watchin' over me
There's many miles ahead 'til I get home
Still I'm safely kept before your throne
'Cause Lord I believe, Lord I believe
Angels are watchin' over me.

Well, I've walked through barren wilderness
When my pillow was a stone
And I've been through the darkest caverns
Where no light had ever shown.
Still I went on 'cause there was someone
Who was down on their knees
And Lord, I thank you for those people
Prayin' all this time for me.

Somebody's prayin', I can feel it
Somebody's prayin' for me
Mighty hands are guiding me
To protect me from what I can't see
Lord I believe, Lord I believe
Somebody's prayin' for me..



Written by John. G. Elliot


     Over ten years ago, my son recorded that song for his grandmothers.  They were so proud of him and listened to it over and over.  Those grandmothers prayed mightily for him and for all of their grandchildren.  After the grandmothers passed on to heaven, I listened to it and prayed for my son and for my daughters.  
     So much has happened since then; many prayers have been sent to heaven........and now, my children are praying for me.  As I sat in church and listened to those words, I was overcome with their love.
     This song tells it all.  When people say that they are praying for me, it really touches my spirit. It is humbling, but I am so grateful for every one of them. God is moved by the prayers of his saints.  It's just the kind of God He is.
