Mandisa - Praying For You Lyrics

I wonder if you think of me like I think of you
Do you long for my touch
I’ll honor you with purity,
so you can have all of me
Am I saying too much?

For now I’m waiting, anticipating
Baby, I know that you’ll be
The one that’s strong when I am weak
I’ll love you through the good and the bad
For rich or for poor
May not have much but this I’m sure
‘Til my dream comes true
I’ll be praying for you, praying for you

I wonder what’s in store for me
Who you’re gonna be
Have you ever passed me by
And I know that you are working hard
For our picket fence and yard
Maybe a little girl and boy

But for now, I’m waiting, oh anticipating
Baby, I know that you’ll be
The one that’s strong when I am weak
I’ll love you through the good and the bad
For rich or for poor
May not have much but this I’m sure
‘Til my dream comes true
I’ll be praying for you, praying for you

That you will fear the Lord
I’ll pray we’ll be on one accord
That God will bless everything we do
I pray that He will shield your heart
That we will not be torn apart
And side by side in Jesus’ name we’ll stand
But for now we’re waiting, anticipating

For rich or for poor
May not have much but this I’m sure
‘Til my dream comes true
I’ll be praying for you
Everyday I’m praying for you

  18. Gloria Bitutu

    Until that dream comes true ill be praying for you

  19. Rachel Hillhouse

    I was in a very serious relationship with talks of marriage. I was led on and on and than he tore my heart out and broke up with me. I went to summer church camp to heal from the relationship with no intentions of looking for someone. I met my husband there and he also wasn't looking for anyone. I met him through his sister. The rest is history. We've been married for 16 years 😊 When you step out of the way and let God do the work, He makes everything turn out right!

  20. rox tadz

    wow! I just found this song while looking for another song of you. This melts my heart. What a beautiful song of prayer for the man you haven't even met. I'll definitely take time to learn this song and I'll look forward of making a cover of it and let all young ladies know about this awesome piece. God bless you.

  21. Karma Sherpa

    GOD is always by our side even when we try to walk out of his ways he always brings us back because he loves us so much that he gave us his only begotten son to die for our sins to be forgiven and have eternal life.

  27. Candace Peters

    Amen....I'm praying for him....that's awesome Dominique Thomas



  29. Dominique Thomas

    Don't give up on covering your future husbands. I'd been speaking life over a stranger since I was a teenager. God put this man on my heart in 2008 and I prayed for him as a sister in Christ. In 2013 God spoke to him and told him that I was to be his wife. It was BIG news to the both of us. He told me how God was moving in his life- molding him just for me. Our wedding was Nov. 2014 and God sent many people to invest in our wedding and than gave us a home for free. Don't put God in a box. Seek first the kingdom of God and all else shall be added... Matthew 6:33

    Rosemary C

    Praise God!! So beautiful!! :)

    Gloria Bitutu

    Dominique Thomas wow that's a blessing, wishing you all the best.


    Dominique Thomas Thank you for sharing your testimony! Peace be upon your household Amen in Jesus Name

    Christy Dilligard

    Dominique Thomas hallelujah!!!

    Lindy Heyer

    I've been trying to do the same thing, praying for my two older sisters and my future husbands. Thank you for the encouragement. Also Matt 6:33 is one of my favorite verses of promise!

  41. Tammy Jerkins

    HAPPY 2015, this is going to be a great year for my family & Me!!! I can already tell. Thank you Lord. Feeling blessed & grateful.

  42. LornyLuPots

    I've been struggling with singleness recently to the point of resenting the Lord for not meeting my spouse yet. I moaned and blamed Him and got angry (my mum always said be honest with God so in this case I've been very honest). To encourage those like me still in singleness, the lord planted in my heart, we walk by faith and not by sight. In the natural nothing seems to be happening but in the heavens God is working for our good. And now I know that I know that I will have the man of my dreams in due time xx amen


    Its not been easy tho. The proverb is true when it says iron sharpens iron. Geez, alot harder than i thought, at times i have gone to say something to him about something but then i look at him and think i have done the same so then i have to keep quiet. He is a mirror to my own life if that makes sense, because you have knowledge of what the bible says you line them up with what they should be doing and sometimes they dont then you get mad but at the same time you dont do the things you should do either, its a massive learning curve and its hard but an amazing one at the same time :) its not always rainbows and butterflies. Its just you are working things out in yourself and each other :) 


    LornyLuPots, I pray I get to meet mine soon too :(

    Love Like

    LornyLuPots Thank you. I really needed to see this. I've been struggling really hard lately and I just wasn't sure how to keep holding on. Now I do! Thank you!

    Joseph Toro

    Amen sister, I feel exactly the same way. I'm already 20 and have been single my whole life. My wife will be the one and only girl I ever date, not by my choice alone but by God's grand design. May he hurry and let us meet soon.


    I need prayer.pls pray for me for favour

  76. Brent Dudley

    God bless you in your walk with the Lord. When some chump not worthy of you comes along, say you are married to Our God, for that's all you lust after, His love.When that man comes along, he'll share the same desire, to forsake others to follow His will. Again, God bless you and keep you Elizabeth.

  77. Lizz S

    Mandisa, you inspire me so much! You are someone I really look up to! :) Your music is so encouraging and thankful that God brought you and your music into my life!<3
