Protected by Prayer

He got lost from his unit in the jungle alone
with the enemy on the advance;
As the bullets and tracers flew over his head,
he knew that he didn't have a chance.
He fired his rifle and tried to be brave,
though his senses were frightened and numb;
He lay on the ground with a lump in his throat
'cause he knew that the end would soon come.
But back home a mother was down on her knees
praying, "Be with my son, keep him safe, Father, please."
When it looked so hopeless, just a one-sided fight,
his deliverence flew into the night.
And the enemy scattered as the chopper touched down
and lifted the soldier off the hard killing ground;
He could feel the LORD's presence in the hot jungle air,
surrounded by mercy, protected by prayer.

She had to work late, she was hurrying along,
trying to get home before dark;
Against her better judgement, she turned from her way
and took the shortcut that ran through the park.
With night falling quickly and no one around,
from the shadows there stepped a man;
She noticed the cold, evil look in his eyes,
then she saw the knife in his hand.
She cried out, "LORD, Jesus, I'm one of Your own,
send me help, LORD, you know I can't face this alone."
As the powers of heaven fought the powers of hell,
the man tripped and stumbled and fell.
She walked through the darkness without worry or fear
knowing nothing could harm her 'cause her angel was near;
No evil could touch her, no demon would dare,
surrounded by mercy, protected by prayer.

Bridge:
He who abides in the Almighty's shadow
shall be kept 'neath His sheltering wing;
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow,
I will not fear anything.

He was a good husband and the father of two,
It all began harmless enough.
He started out tryin the drugs just for fun,
Then he was hooked on the stuff.
He was out on the street just a thief and a bum,
He was dirty and out of control.
But his family wouldn't give up,
They cried out to God,
And prayed for his lost troubled soul.

Then one day a street preacher walked up to him,
He said, "Friend, did you know Jesus died for your sins?
I've been sent to help you find salvation's door,
You can't live like this anymore."
And the Heavens were opened and conviction fell down,
And he cried out for mercy as he knelt on the ground.
When he stood up his soul was in the Good Shepherd's care,
Surrounded by mercy,
Protected by prayer.

Surrounded by mercy,
Protected by prayer.
