What Do You Do?





What Do You Do?

What do you do
When you’re on their Prayer List,
You’re not doin’ the prayin’,
But they’re prayin’ for you?

Then you start to thinkin’
Of each and every person
Bowin’ before God,
Takin’ time to pray.

Askin’ for that healin’ touch
Liftin’ up your name,
To our Lord and Savior,
From those you love so much.

Rememberin’ you this time
As you’ve remembered them before
Baskin’ in His Grace –
In His Glory shine.

What do you do
When you’re on their Prayer List,
They’re prayin’ for you?
I’ll thank ‘em that’s what I’ll do!
