Prayer (Skit)
by DMX



I come to you hungry and tired, you give me food, let me sleep
I come to you weak, you give me strength, and that's deep
Called me a sheep, and lead me to green pastures
Only askin' 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 till 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
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 of the hood
Plenty of times you should help my way, but I hid
And I remember once you held me close, but I slid
It was somethin' that I just had to see
That you wanted me to see so I could 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
It's strange, but it's got me beatin' down your door
But I've never known love like this before
It's a wonderful feelin' 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 tear, it's on
And I almost lost faith when you took my man
Monte, Paso, and Jay's brother Dan
And I fear that what I'm sayin' 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 till I die, but, please, Lord, treat him right
