We pray for blessings, we pray for peace,
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep.
We pray for healing, for prosperity,
We pray for your mighty hand to ease our suffering.
All the while, you hear each spoken need,
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things.
Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops?
What if your healing comes through tears?
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know you are near?
And what if trials of this life are your mercies in disguise?
We pray for wisdom,
Your voice to hear,
And we cry in anger when we cannot feel you near,
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love,
As if every promise from your word is not enough,
And all the while, you hear each desperate plea,
And long that we would have faith to believe.
When friends betray us,
And when the darkness seems to win,
We know that pain reminds this heart,
That this is not, this is not our home.
What if my greatest disappointments,
Or the aching of this life,
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy,
And what if trials of this life,
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights,
Are your mercies in disguise?

Be the song you sing in blessings and suffering.

This post renews what I was taught growing up. I believe our prayers are always answered. The answers are not always what we expect them to be.
