The Prayer 

by David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager

I pray you'll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don't know

Let this be our prayer
When we lose our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe.

I pray we'll find your light
I pray we'll find your light

And hold it in our hearts
And hold it in our hearts

When stars go out each night
When the stars go out each night
Oohhh....

Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer

When shadows fill our day
When shadows fill our day

Lead us to a place

Guide us with your grace

To a place where we'll be safe.

[Together:]

A world where pain and
sorrow will be ended
And every heart that's
broken will be mended
And we'll remember we
are all God's children
Reaching out to touch you
Reaching to the sky.

We ask that life be kind
We ask that life be kind

And watch us from above
And watch us from above

We hope each soul will find
We hope each soul will find

Another soul to love
Another soul to love.

Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer

Just like every child.
Just like every child.
[Together :]
Needs to find a place
Guide us with your grace.
Give us faith so we'll be safe

Needs to find a place
Guide us with your grace.
Give us faith so we'll be safe

Never Leave 

by Red Rocks Worship

Every atmosphere is changed
when You draw near
Every failure falls away,
in the silence I hear

The voice that calms the sea
You’re in the waters deep,
no matter what I see

You are with me
You are for me
You'll never leave
You are with me
You are for me

Through the flood and through the flames
Your Spirit moves
When my enemies invade
You hold me close to You
You are confident in battle
You won’t abandon me
No matter what I see

You are with me You are for me
You'll never leave You are with me
You are for me
You'll never leave

You are here, right now -Victory is breaking out -  Right here, right now - Breaking chains that hold me down -  You are here, right now Victory is breaking out - Right here, right now
