UNANSWERED PRAYERS (Pat Alger / Garth Brooks / Larry Bastian) Garth Brooks - 1990 Pat Alger - 1994 Joey Sontz - 2012 Just the other night at 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 had wanted for all time And each night I'd spend praying that God would make her mine And if he'd only grant me this wish I'd wished back then I'd never ask for anything again Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers Remember when you're talking 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 in her eyes too it seemed We tried to take about the old days, there wasn't much we could recall I guess the Lord knows what he's doing after all And as she walked away, I looked at my wife And then and there I thanked the good Lord for the gifts in my life Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers Remember when you're talking to the man upstairs That just because he may not answer, doesn't mean he don't care Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2017)
