This song is about a person who reached an all time low in their life and discovered the reasons why. It only takes prayer and guidance from our Heavenly Father.

Got my Rags tided up and thrown across my shoulder,|
Everything I own rapped up in this tiny little holder
Off on a journey to God Knows Where,
Is it too Late to look back, too late to Care
If only I prayed, wouldn’t be this way today .
Being ashamed as I look back now at whats brought me here today.
So many things I’ve done dear Lord they just got in the way
The trials and regrets O Lord I’ll carry them to my grave
I was too proud to listen and too ashamed to pray.
This journey we walked together rough it’s been.
It made me come to realize Lord, you are my one true friend
Nailed to a cross at Calvary, suffered & died to set me free.
If only I prayed, wouldn’t be this way today.
The lusts of the world got a hold of me, You opened my eyes that I might see.
A way to escape this misery……..forgetting these words that keep taunting me.
Being ashamed as I look back now at what’s brought me here today.
So many things I’ve done dear Lord, they just got in the way.
The trials and regrets O Lord ,I’ll carry them to my grave
I was too proud to listen , too ashamed to pray
Today I bow my head and listen Lord, and I thank you for teaching me to pray.
