I Said A Prayer For You Today


I said a prayer for you today
And know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart
Although He spoke not a word.

I didn’t ask for wealth or fame
(I knew you wouldn’t mind).
I asked for priceless treasure rare
Of a more lasting kind.

I prayed that He’d be near you
At the start of each new day
To grant you health and blessings fair,
And friends to share your way.

I asked for happiness for you
In all things great and small
But that you’d know his loving care
I prayed the most of all.
