I've heard the story of David
And I've heard of Daniel inside the lion's din
Yes, I've heard of Job and his afflictions, oh Lord
How they all kept the faith right til the end, yes til the end
But when all hope, Lord, have seemed to fail,
That's when my God, yes, His power prevails.
One thing I know, yes I really know
Prayer changes things
Lord, it changes things

Yeah, do you know
Prayer changes things
Do you know God, child
Prayer changes things
I've been out on the stormy raging sea
Lord, liftin' (me)
Yeah, I been hungry
I've been sick
I've been filled with misery
But, along came Jesus
I'll tell the world God rescued me
One thing I know, yes I know
Prayer changes things, God knows

Umm, you know prayer gives you strength when you're fallin, hmmm...
And it'll unlock doors that been closed so long in your face.
Oh and it will raise a friend when you feel friendless, my Lord.
And it will drive all your doubts and fears away, oh Lord.
Yes, the world may crush you, but you don't have to fret
My God remembers when others forget, yes one thing I know
Yes, I surely know, prayer changes things

Hey, do you know prayer, prayer changes things
Child I've tried God and I know prayer changes things
I've been out on the stormy, Lord Lord, raging sea
Lord, liftin' (me)
Yeah, I been hungry
I've been sick
I've been filled with misery
But, along came Jesus
I'll tell the world God rescued me
One thing I know, yes
Prayer ew, eww, eww
Prayer changes things

    Prayer the evident of things seen; has once again been manifested in kentucky when a mother seeing distruction all around her reached out to our father and prayed for her home and town to be saved and through the power of television, we saw the tornado lift and her home was saved. Pray changed her situation.
