    • Well can't a prayer be a song or song a prayer? I know some lines are overly too long I can shorten them but over religious maybe. But that's the way I am being led to write it. In religious circles I think they like it. And as far as being prophetic. Recently my son that I speak about in my story / song have been in a horrific car accident he totaled his car. He wonders himself how he survived the accident. He was drunk and hydroplaned into two trees. If there was a passenger in the car, the police said, they would have died. Sadly to say he thanks the angels for saving him. Which is contrary to the Bible. This song I wrote 2 months before the accident. It was almost like a precursor to the events that would happen. I know I did not mention a car accident but while I was writing this story I had a sense that something bad is going to happen. That's why I finished it, and I knew many people will not like it. As far as the true meaning behind the song is return to God and depend on Him in everything you do in your life. If you are not a Christian you would not understand the things of God. And I do appreciate your critique. Thank you very much and I will work on it. i have another called Seven Years this song is about me being addicted to crack and cocaine for seven years. A $500+ / day addiction. I was making good money back then. Glad to say today that I have been drug free for almost 15 years and I quit on my own. I will post that one next.
