Unanswered Prayers Lyrics

Artist: Garth Brooks

Just the other night a hometown football game
My wife and I ran into my old high school flame
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

She wasn't quite the angel that I remembered in my dreams
And I could tell that time had changed me
Inn her eyes too it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days
There wasn't much we could recall
I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all

And as she walked away and I looked at my wife
And then and there I thankedd the good Lord
For the gifts in my life


Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

This song means so much to me. I would pray and pray for my mother to get healed. My mother died when i was in the 5th grade. I was sad then, but now that i realize, I am a total different person than I would be if she hadn't died. Now i think about who I am as a person, and who she wants me to be.I thank God For Unanswered Prayers.
