daddy's drinking alcohol
sometimes he hits the walls
momma prays
momma prays

her son has did his crimes
now he must do his time
momma prays
momma prays

her daughters pregnant now
but she doesn't know how
momma prays
momma prays

momma prays when she's knocked down
momma prays when she's no count
momma prays
momma prays

momma prays for daddy's soul
that one day it will be whole
momma prays
momma prays

momma prays for her sons life
that one day he'll be alright
momma prays
momma prays

momma prays for her daughters child
that one day she'll make her proud
momma prays
momma prays

momma prays when she's knocked down
momma prays when she's no count
momma prays
momma prays

momma gone to meet the Lord
now I can't pretend no more
now I pray
now I pray

now I pray for my father to be saved
now I pray for my sister to find faith
now I pray
now I pray

now I pray that I find my way
through its hard I can't complain
now I pray
now I pray

momma prays when she's knocked down
momma prays when she's no count
momma prays
momma prays

i'm in church and I'm on my knees
father and sister next to me
and we pray
and we pray

and we pray to be brought through this storm
and we pray to be wrapped in your arms
and we pray
and we pray

i thank the Lord that momma prayed
i thank the Lord she knew his name
momma prays
now I pray

momma prays when she's knocked down
momma prays when she's no count
momma prays
momma prays

for the ones we have lost its a burden
but let's not forget where they are going
oh let's pray
oh let's pray

for the ones who are called for Gods purpose
be a light in this world filled with darkness
oh let's pray
oh let's pray

for the two who have taught me to be strong
i believe I can always carry on
oh let's pray
oh let's pray

for my friends there's a love I am certain
endless love that can never be broken
oh let's pray
oh let's pray

momma prays when she's knocked down
momma prays when's she's no count
momma prays
momma prays
