More Than You'll Ever Know

This past week I have both experienced and witnessed the incredible power of friends praying for one another. Years ago, my best friend discovered a song that aptly describes the gratitude never adequately expressed for such a gift. Below are the lyrics.

Thank you, Terri! Send this one to those you want to thank for prayers...

More Than You'll Ever Know
by Watermark

Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it's okay to cry with you
Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I've been near God
And that's the way it ought to be...

'Cause you've been more than a friend to me
You fight off my enemies
'Cause you've spoken the Truth over my life
And you'll never know what it means to me
Just to know you've been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you'll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah

You had faith, when I had none
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn't think I could find the strength to sing
And all the while I'm hoping that I'll
Do the kind of praying for you that you've done for me
And that's the way it ought to be...

You have carried me
You have taken upon a burden that wasn't your own
And may the blessing return to you
A hundredfold, oh yeah...
A hundredfold, oh yeah...

Note - I do not actually recommend purchasing the CD, because one of the songs is blatantly anti-Catholic.
