Janice Kapp Perry – A Young Boy Prayed Lyrics


As a child I learned at my mothers knee

What a prayer of faith to a child could be

As she told of a boy with a troubled mind

Whose prayer was answered for all mankind




A young boy prayed

And opened up the heavens with his faith

Because He prayed

He heard and saw the Father face to face

This simple truth helps me in all I do

Because I know that I can pray too
How I love to hear of the sacred place

Where he talked with Jesus and saw His face

When Im all alone and I kneel in prayer

I close my eyes and pretend Im there


Repeat chorus


As I go through life with its good and bad

I will try to think of the faith he had

I can pray to the Father to comfort me

As Joseph did in that grove of trees


Repeat chorus
