I Pray

I was first introduced to this song by Hester over a year ago. I was going through a very rough time, and I was an emotional wreck. My faith in God was severely tested, and many a time, I wanted to give up on life.

The first thing which attracted me to the song was the very soothing rhythm and tune, before I start to fully understand the lyrics. I'm a banana too, and I cannot read Chinese, but with Hester's help, I was able to understand every line.


With every line, the words spoke and ministered to me. And after a very long time, I started to pray once again.

禱告

禱告 因為我渺小
禱告 因為我知道我需要
明了 你心意對我重要

禱告 已假裝不了
禱告 因為你的愛我需要
你關懷 我走過的你都明白

有些事我只想要對你說
因你比任何人都愛我
痛苦從眼中流下
我知道你為我擦

在早晨我也要來對你說
主耶穌今天我為你活
所需要的力量都天天賜給我
你恩典夠我用

- 讚美之泉


Translation:
I pray, for I am nothing
I pray, for I clearly know what I need
To seek Your will as it's shown to me

I pray, for I am searching
I pray, for Your love is what I need
On my knees, through the valleys, You walk with me

Some things I only want to let You know
'Cause no one loves me like You do, my Lord
Though tears of pain may fall
You're with me, I have no doubt

As day breaks, Lord, I wanna cry out to You
'Cause You so love me, You'll pull me through
The strength that I need, I receive every morning
Your grace is all I need

We all pray at some point of time, for the ones besides us, for family and for loved ones
I pray too for all of you
