"We Pray For You"
Music by J Rice
Words by J Rice & Brett McLaughlin

Verse 1:
If I could take
it away
the pain that you're feeling
the nightmare you're
I wish that I
could make a change
but I'm only one person
I'll take my share of the burden

I don't have much to give
but hopefully the world, will all join in
and say with me...

I pray for you
And If we stop for a moment
Imagine what we can
I know together
we'll help you make it
we'll help you make it through
we pray for you

Verse 2:
while we are safely
mothers are searching
lost and uncertain
in need

My heart won't let
me believe
it's ok doing nothing
when others are suffering

even if we don't have much to give
hopefully the world, will all join in
and say with me...


Verse 3:
can't fix it all
but we won't stop trying
until everyone's hands

The future looks brighter
you may be knocked down
but you'll be stronger somehow


Story behind this song:
I sent out an email on April 1st to a lot of my youtube friends with a very rough mix of this song with only one verse and chorus. I had no idea if anyone would even be interested in singing it with me, but within 24 hours 90% had responded saying they were in. A week later I sent everyone their parts. Luckily I was familiar with each individual voice, so I tried to pick parts that would showcase their vocals and also be the perfect match for mood in the song. 3 weeks later, (50 hours of editing/mixing)... all the parts were in and the video was completed. This project has been an amazing experience and we all hope that a real difference can be made with it.
