Latifah ~ Prayer


How can I love when I'm afraid to break my heart
How can I be together when I'm afraid to fall apart
How can I ask when I'm afraid to know
How can I hold on when I'm afraid to let go

How can I smile when I'm afraid to cry
How can I live when I'm afraid to die

How can I prosper when I'm afraid to achieve
How can I have faith when I'm afraid to believe

How can I believe in God
When I'm afraid to take Jesus as my Lord

Oh God you know how I feel
I bow my head as I kneel
To pray
With nothing more to say

I'm only living for a while
How can I be in such a denial
Please show me the way
To you Lord I pray
