Lord, I Lift my Friend to You.

I'm praying for a friend right now and this song came to me (the lyrics are below), it is so powerful and really says everything that I want to say to God. I'm sure we all have friends who stuggle from time to time...as we all do.



A good friend of mine and I have decided that this will be a year of committed prayer. We all say we are going to pray for people and how committed are we...I know for myself I get busy (or forget) and don't make it the priority that it should be.



Lord I Lift my Friend

by Casting Crowns



Lord, I lift my friend to You,

I've done all that I know to do

I lift my friend to You


Complicated circumstances have clouded his view

Lord, I lift my friend up to You


I fear that I won't have the words that he needs to hear

I pray for Your wisdom, oh God,

and a heart that's sincere


Lord, I lift my friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You


My best friend in the world,

I know he means much more to You

I want so much to help him,

but this is something he has to do


And Lord, I lift my friend up to You

'cause there's a way that seems so right to him

But You know where that leads

He's becoming a puppet of the world,

too blind to see the strings



Lord, I lift my friend up to You

My friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You,

I've done all that I know to do

I lift my friend to You
