One hour, one day, one week?
A month, a year, please not a decade!
“Pray and don’t worry, leave it in his hands”
Was the declaration I had made
Whether praying for marriage, a job
A house, a new car, or going back to school
I didn’t realize the process involved
And I was trying hard to stay cool
My best friend is moving out of the hood
Uncle Joe got a bonus and a raise
My neighbor got a full scholarship
All their prayers answered in a matter of days!
My ex got a new higher paying job
My aunt came through cancer free
Even my enemy got blessed with a new car
And my wild and crazy cousin still ain’t got an STD
Testimony after testimony at church
Answered prayers, blessings, and miracles too
For everyone but me
Got me wondering, “Lord, what did I do?”
I mean hold up, don’t he cheat on his wife?
And Sis. Joan stole church money right?
Don’t that girl drink and beat her kids?
And I know the choir director be clubbing all night!
I’m just dazed, annoyed and very confused
Cause they all just gave testimonies of praise
And I’m sitting here crying inside
Wondering when in the world I’m gonna get outta this phase
