I pray the Lord will hold you close and keep you through the night,
That you will wake up smiling in the early morning light,
That He will always comfort you and make you brave and strong,
I pray that you will follow Him your whole life long.

I pray that you will grow up to be wise and good and true,
I pray that you will please the Lord in everything you do,
I pray that you will hear His voice and learn to sing His song,
I pray that you will follow Him your whole life long.

I pray that you will follow Him,
I pray that you will follow Him,
I pray that you will follow Him your whole life long.

I pray the Lord will bless you with His presence every day,
I pray he will protect you every step along the way,
Help you love what’s right and lead you far away from wrong,
I pray that you will follow Him your whole life long.

I pray that you will follow Him,
I pray that you will follow Him,
I pray that you will follow Him your whole life long.

The above are the words from the beautiful song Your Whole Life Long by Twila Paris. I love the words of this song as not only is it a prayer for the reader/listener it’s also an instruction or  challenge for each one of us. i.e. that you “follow Him”, but not only that “you follow Him” but that “you follow Him your whole life long”.

Are you already “following Him”? If not, it’s not too late to start following Him today.

I hope you will enjoy listening to Twila Paris singing th above song, as much as I do…enjoy:

I pray that you WILL follow Him your whole life long
