Songs For Our Times #15

Eliot Sloan, Eliot Sloan, Eliot Sloan, None - Hear 2 Heal - Blessid Union  of Souls - Amazon.com Music

I believe music can inspire, give hope, make you cry, make you think, and a million other things. I want to start posting some music that I really think speak to the times we are in. As you know, I listen to everything so tune in every day, never know what you will get.

For our 15th song, I chose Healing by Blessid Union Of Souls. I think the lyrics speak for themselves on why I chose this one. We all pray for things we don’t need, but as we mature we pray for what the world needs. We need healing, we need peace.

lyrics:

I used to pray for things that I don’t need
Trouble God with all my vanities
Used to pray for things that I shouldn’t want
I meant to give thanks, but I forgot

Now I pray for healing
I pray for peace
I pray for healing
For you and me

I used to pray that all my bills got paid
And that we’d get safely to the shows we played.
I used to think I didn’t have enough…
Now I give because I know I have too much

And I pray for healing,
Oh God, send relief
I pray for healing
This time it’s not for me

I used to pray my kids would grow up happy
Now I pray that they grow up at all
But I refuse to let these fears devour me
Cause I know it won’t be long
Before we’re standing tall again

I used to pray when things were not so fine
But now I find myself praying all the time
Now all the things that I used to pray for
Suddenly don’t mean a thing no more

Cause now I pray for healing
I pray for peace
I pray for healing for you
And for you
And for you
And for you
I pray for you
So pray for me
Pray for peace
