Prayer and fasting is an upper
words and music by: Lance Appleton


Prayer and fasting is an upper
it makes me want to sing a happy song
and I’m gonna love that marriage supper
because I’ve been praying and fasting all day long

people nowadays think its a drag to pray
and it brings them down to push that plate away
they regulate their moods by the chemicals in foods
but friend there’s just one thing I’d like to say

Prayer and fasting is an upper
it makes me want to sing a happy song
and I’m gonna love that marriage supper
because I’ve been praying and fasting all day long

I’ve been backslidden I’ve been cold and carnal too
I’ve even had those sugar blues
but the joy of the Lord now has been restored
by practicing this simple Bible truth

Prayer and fasting is an upper
it makes me want to sing a happy song
and I’m gonna love that marriage supper
because I’ve been praying and fasting all day long

well I prayed dear Jesus please I want to be like you
to fast and pray the way you used to do
why my waist would get so small I could squeeze right through a wall
and be light enough to walk on water too
