Lord, I lift my friend to You, I've done all that I know to do
I lift my friend to You
Complicated circumstances have clouded his view
Lord, I lift my friend up to You

I fear that I won't have the words that he needs to hear
I pray for Your wisdom, oh God, and a heart that's sincere
Lord, I lift my friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You
My best friend in the world, I know he means much more to You
I want so much to help him, but this is something he has to do
And Lord, I lift my friend up to You

'cause there's a way that seems so right to him
But You know where that leads
He's becoming a puppet of the world, too blind to see the strings
Lord, I lift my friend up to You
My friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You, I've done all that I know to do
I lift my friend to You

    I love this song.....Do you pray for a friend when you see them going the wrong way? or you just neglect them becuz of your own personal reasons? Let us all pray for our friends who are going the wrong way.

    He's praying for his friend, he knew he has done everything that a friend can offer, but he also knew that only god can fill in whats lacking in his friends' life.

    I dedicate this song to my dear friend, because the moment i hear this song i remember the times when he shares his problems to me. He said to me.. Please include me in your prayer... And this is my prayer for my friend.

    _you need to pray for him, so that, god will guide him.. Thou, you cant show him your affection you can care for him by means of prayer. If you pray for a friend that means you are caring for him..
