I Kept on Praying

v1
You know as I was praying
three full weeks I moaned
the first few days were normal
I did not know what was in store
the devils gathered 'round me
and said, "Daniel where's your Lord?"
I said He's not come by here yet so I'll just pray some more

Chorus
and I kept on prayin', I kept on praying, I prayed three times a day unto the Lord

v2
ten days have passed away the devil laughed at me
he said, "Now Daniel there's no God so why not worship me?"
Well I buried my head much deeper and I cried with all my might
Your lied will never work on me now get on out of my sight

Chorus

v3
fifteen days have come and gone
I'm weak from fasting now
Oh satan said unto me, "You've lost your battle now"
Well I prayed and I wept and I cried to God
Though I did not feel a thing
I said, "My Lord I know Your real!" and I let those prayer bells ring

Chorus

v4
twenty days have passed away and still I see no sign
Oh Satan said unto me, "the light will never shine now Daniel pray unto the Lord, but your battles over now"
I said, "Come back tomorrow devil, I'm gonna show you how!"

Chorus

v5
The twenty first day is dawning, but something is different today
Those devils were not present to hinder me when I prayed
but behold a hand just touched me and I heard the good Lord say,
"Oh, Daniel my beloved son, I heard you the first day!"

Chorus 2x

HI Bob, I believe this is the one you're looking for. Hope you enjoy it.
Keith.

THEY WERE PRAYING, PRAYING FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME,
NOT LONG AGO, I WAS THINKING OF HOME.
AND I WONDERED IF MAMA, WAS THERE ALL ALONE
I THOUGHT I'D DROP BY, AS I HAD BEFORE.
BUT THE SOUND FROM WITHIN MADE ME STOP AT THE DOOR.

                 1st CHORUS

SHE WAS PRAYING, A SOUND THAT THE WORLD SELDOM HEARS
PRAYING HER WORDS WERE PLEADING AND DEAR.
THE SOUND OF HER VOICE, AS SHE SPOKE MY NAME.
BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES, MY HEART FILLED WITH SHAME.
PRAYING, PRAYING FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME.

                   

I WAS WALKING ONE NIGHT, I FELT SO ALONE,
MY HEART WAS SO HEAVY FROM THE TROUBLE I'D KNOWN.
I HADN'T NOTICE, A CHURCH THAT WAS NEAR,
TILL THE SOUND FROM WITHIN SEEN TO FILL THE AIR.


               2nd CHORUS

THEY WERE PRAYING, A SOUND THAT THE WORLD SELDOM HEARS
PRAYING THE CHILDREN THAT GOD LOVED SO DEAR.
OUTSIDE IN THE DARKNESS, I COULD NOT SEE
BUT I COULD PICTURE THEM DOWN ON THEIR KNEES,
PRAYING, PRAYING FOR SOME ONE LIKE ME.
