DMX - Prayer Lyrics

I come to you hungry and tired, you give me food and let me sleep
I come to you weak, you give me strength and that's deep
You call me a sheep and lead me to green pastures
Only asking that I keep the focus in between the chapters
You give me the word and only ask that I interpret
And give me the eyes that I may recognize the serpent
You know I ain't perfect, but you'd like me to try
Unlike the devil who just wants me to lie, 'til I die
Lord, why is it that I go through so much pain?
All I saw was black, all I felt was rain
I come to you because it's you who knows
You showed me that everything was black because my eyes were closed
You gave me the light and let me bask in your glory
So it was only right that when you ask for this story
I put it together to do our dogs some good
Our dogs being brothers and sisters in the hood
Plenty of times you sent help my way, but I hid
And I remember once you held me close, but I slid
There was something that I just had to see
That you wanted me to see so I can be what you wanted me to be
And I think I've seen it, 'cause I don't feel the same
Matter of fact, I know I've seen it, I can feel the change
And it's strange, almost got me beating down your door
But I have never known a love like this before
It's a wonderful feeling to get away from the pain
And up under the ceiling I get away from the rain
And the strain that I feel when I'm here is gone
I know real so I wipe away the tears; it's on
And I almost lost faith when you took my man
Monty, Paso, and Jay's brother Dan
And I fear that what I'm saying won't be heard until I'm gone
But it's all good, 'cause I really didn't expect to live long
So if it takes for me to suffer, for my brother to see the light
Give me pain 'til I die, but please, Lord, treat him right

  26. Millie Lasalle

    What some may not understand is that not only was at this time n maybe present he was gloriously knowledgeable inspite of his lifestyle and addiction..he understood his covering..he understood he was a son of an all true god and savior.. He was publicly fighting demons while trying to keep his faith..thru prayer and humility! Satan wasn't trying leave him alone n he made sure his demons fucked with him... So people say..he was just a crazy irratic man or just a washed up druggy but this isn't the case... He was fighting a fight the industry that once liked him didnt understand. He got caught up between 2 worlds and the bastards who have worldly hold.. Exploited it. Exploited him..cuz it was too easy to make or label a black thug city boy look crazy or so unstable..nothing he'd say would have any truth or worth..LIES! HE WAS like a paul.. He is a child of God..he is chosen!! @dmx

    Jaime Lee

    This touches my heart so much. I too believe he was chosen. Every time I hear him pray I feel closer to God.

  54. justin gnewuch

    I am a 34 year old addict. I am son, brother, father, cousin, friend and I am lost. My love for my disease is more than my love for them. I pray for a spiritual awakening, to remove the obsession of alcohol and drugs from my life. I pray for those who may be in the same situation i am in now. These prayers that dmx pours out of his soul, has found their way into mine

  75. Leon Sims

    God died on the cross for Brothers like DMX. He knew that we would fall and some would fall deeper than others, but that’s why He forgives us for ALL our sins through prayer and repentance. Stand in judgement if you want to and trust me when I say, when God comes to Judge, and He is on His way, you will be rebuked more than the lowly fallen....

  86. Vanessa Marie

    My husband Michael is fucking Awesome!!!!

  87. Ray Dykes

    a prophet will never be accepted at home

  88. Dustan Clark

    Real talk, those vices are the very reason we need to put on the full armor of God. Everyday is a battle and the serpent is playing for keeps! Remember if there wasn't any sun on Earth, then wouldn't that be heaven? DMX is a very good Minister. Remember the Lord Leads his army, for ALL walks of life. DMX can reach multitudes of inner city youths would NOT give a square person the time of day. So remember how Jesus told the Pharisees, He with out sin, cast the first stone. I'll NEVER persecute another man for his walk in Christ. Remember the 2 things we are guaranteed. Trials and tribulations! It's through these times, we can give testimony on the glorious power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ our Lord. So once again the power of DMX's testimony, is a walk many of us would have crumpled and parishes. I can promise you the non-convicted, will have a harder time to witness to the convicted. It takes one to build on one! God Bless everyone that listens to DMX, and supports him even if he's back sliding. As Christians, we are to help and support our brothers and sisters. You DON'T slap a hand away when they are pleading for help up off the cliff the fell over, and clinging to their life by their finger tips. Heaven isn't filled with the ones we are trying to reach!

  89. shey love


  90. awoke one

    Mike Hunt & Steven Gonzales, why not thank Dmx for opening your (our) eyes and bring you (us) closer to God with his prayers? We are not perfect by a long shot and Im sure we all have sinned and will continue to until we die. Instead of judging him, why dont you say a prayer for him? God bless Dmx and the both of you.

  91. Action Jackson

    All these comments are real asf about X but I believe songs/interludes like these are the true jewels of the projects. E.g. He has a church now. Basically, I feel like his bad up bringing makes him who most ppl perceive because if he was a rapper trying to only push upliftiting spiritual music he would've nvr had his push, sad to say. Still I just think too many ppl miss X's "greatness"

  92. nikki dee

    Deep love ...I love this man Protect him LORD #Yonkersfinest
