I Don’t Pray Anymore


words and music by Rick Paul

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
