Yesterday’s Prayers

by Lance Appleton

Dear friends,
As the year ends
Tho’ we don’t know
Where the time goes
Still we understand there is an unseen hand
Guiding us on to a land beyond tomorrow.

I just want to say I’m grateful
For yesterday’s prayers,
Those stepping stones of hope
That helped to get me here from way back there;
I could have died
Somewhere
Lost without the tears you cried
For me in yesterday’s prayers.

Just as sure as JESUS
Shed His blood at Calvary
The words you said
Were like love poured out on me;
The sounds may fade
But I hear them yet,
My life is changed
And I won’t forget
Yesterday’s prayers.
