Prayer for a lost friend

Don’t know what to do,
Asking for answers,
I come to you.

Lord hear my prayer!
There’s a girl who needs you.
She’s cryin’ out now,
Lord she needs your help.

I want to help her,
Tried before.
Now I don’t have the answers,
So I’m knockin’ on your door!
(Bridge)
Sayin’ “God help her now!”
You’re the only one left.
No one else is able,
So give her your rest.

Her faith is fading,
She’s starting to fall,
So hold out your arms,
God, of all!

God help her now!
You’re the only one left,
Hold her, in your arms.
Keep her safe.

God you are able
So I’m asking you now!
Rescue her soul please,
She is your child.

God you are able,
So as she’s starting to fall!
Catch her in your arms,
Lord of all!

I love this! Very truethful, very poetic. I hope your freind is alright now. I love your spirituality! You just straight up trust God with everything! Me, I'd still be trying to help instead of just letting God have it. Handing it to God takes real courage. Great job.

This is kind of cool. You have quite an interesting style, and it works really well in this case. I'm sorry about your friend, and I think it's great that you wrote this song. It's beautiful :)
