Pray It Like You Mean It
Country, male or female singer, mid-tempo: Ron Brown, Ron Hoellein, Ken Matejka; 01/21/11


Verse 1:

He took a deep breath and knocked on the door
Heard an old woman say come on in
It was his first day on the cancer floor
Brand new preacher, he was young and green

Verse 2:

He said I'm here from the local Baptist church
We can talk to the Lord right from your bed
So he started readin' like he'd rehearsed
She could tell that he was nervous, gently touched his hand, and said...

Chorus:

Preacher, honey, put a little more in it
Say it from your heart
Let the Spirit fill you up with passion
Reach down deep, make me believe, that you've been there and seen it
Preacher, honey, pray it like you mean it

Verse 3:

So he closed that Bible and smiled at her
Said, you're right, let me try again
This time stumbled on a couple words
She said, you're almost there, I'm almost home... one more time, amen...

Chorus:

Preacher, honey, put a little more in it
Say it from your heart
Let the Spirit fill you up with passion
Reach down deep, make me believe, that you've been there and seen it
Preacher, honey, pray it like you mean it

Bridge:

She squeezed his hand one final time and then slipped away
Her work was done, she'd taught a good son how to pray
When she said...

Chorus:

Preacher, honey, put a little more in it
Say it from your heart
Let the Spirit fill you up with passion
Reach down deep, make me believe, that you've been there and seen it
Preacher, honey, pray it like you mean it
Oh, preacher, honey, pray it like you mean it
