My Special Prayer Request

This song is by Porter Wagoner.

A little girl stood up in church in a worn and faded dress
She made her way up to the front to make a special prayer request
She said pray for God to help my mama 'cause she can't help herself
Preacher pray for mama that's my special prayer request
Mama started drinking when daddy left our home
She just gave up didn't seem to care and everything went wrong
Our friends have all stopped coming by and we are so alone
Pray to God we'll heal her broken heart and make my mama strong
She used to be so pretty and wear such pretty clothes
She took us to church on Sunday and she loved us so
Mama was so happy then she always seemed so gay
But everything changed for mama when my daddy went away
There's God up in heaven who deals and answers prayers
I'd like to ask all you good people while you gather here
Pray for God to help my mama 'cause she can't help herself
Preacher pray for mama that's my special prayer request
Preacher pray for mama that's my special prayer request
