I Don’t Pray Anymore


words and music by Rick Paul
I Don't Pray Anymore cover art
From the single I Don’t Pray Anymore

She walked out on me last night
Left me all alone
Lying there in that king sized bed
In that big old home
Lord, I can’t change where I am today
I wish I could somehow
I don’t pray anymore
But, Lord, I need to now

Dressed in rags the day we met
Our faith kept us strong
Sometimes we had to muster all we could
Just to get along
Then somewhere I found the road to fortune
And lost her love somehow
I don’t pray anymore
But, Lord, I need to now

I don’t pray anymore
I just don’t pray
Somewhere along the road
I lost my need for hope
I threw it all away
I don’t pray anymore
I don’t remember how
I don’t pray anymore
But, Lord, I need to now

I took her for granted
Acted like I’d made it on my own
I became too satisfied
I hardly even tried
To let my love for her show

I don’t pray anymore
I just don’t pray
Somewhere along the road
I lost my need for hope
I threw it all away
I don’t pray anymore
I don’t remember how
I don’t pray anymore
But, Lord, I need to now

I don’t pray anymore
But, Lord, I need to now
