Anybody Wanna Pray
by CeCe Winans



Do it, do it
Oh, geez
Do it, do it
Anybody wanna pray
Oh, yeah-yeah

Look at the world and all the trouble it's in
We've traded righteousness for pleasures of sin
And now that things have gotten way out of hand
You're wonderin' how and you're wonderin' when

Hate is filtered right into your home (into your home)
Takin' the love that the family once owned (the family once owned)
Mothers against the daughters, dads against sons
The way that it looks seems like Evil has won

[Refrain]
Anybody wanna pray with me
Anybody wanna pray with me, anybody wanna
Anybody wanna pray with me (and chase all these troubles away)
Anybody wanna pray with me
Anybody wanna pray with me, anybody wanna
Anybody wanna pray with me (and chase all these dark clouds away)

I understand just why you'd throw him the towel (throw him the towel)
Where there's no hope, life is not worth the while (is not worth the while)
Why would you choose to (live without me)
What else do you want (What else do you want) when I am all that you need?
(Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, searchin' high and searchin' low ev'ryday)
To find a peace of mind and someone to care
(Hey, what you say?) When all you have to do is (fall on your knees
Take a look at yourself, I'm all that you need
Say it again)

[Refrain]

(And now, it's time to shout) Shout the victory (We win)
If you haven't read the book, come and go with me
There comes a time when (There comes a time when) all jokes aside (Stop playin')
You make up your mind, you
Make up your mind

On bended knees, these petitions get heard
From the throne room to packed arenas you've heard
Known for that, must commence to rock it fat
Crowd react, believe I'll pray for that

Yo', I keep my stance on the rock like this
So, if two, three or mor' decide to lock wrist
You better come strong, faith long like this
‘Cause wit' Grits and Cece, you know, God in the midst

[Refrain, 2 fois]
(recite The Lord's Prayer)
Come on,
It's time to pray
It's time to pray
