GARTH BROOKS


Unanswered Prayers Lyrics

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'd wanted for all times
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin' 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 talk about the old days
There wasn't much we could recall
I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all

And as she walked away and 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 talkin' 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 prayers

Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

He's thanking god for not giving him that high school crush forever & always, because then, he met the one...and that was his prayer being answered.... No prayer is unanswered, just not always ur wish

Someone sent me this song after my husband left me. Two years later, I met an amazing man who has shown me the true meaning of love. I'm not a county fan, but it gets me every time I hear it!

I prayed my mom wouldn't die but she did at the age of 33. So I guess thank God for unanswered prayers.

what a great way to show that humans should not always cry about not getting what you want. God gives you what you need, at His time. We see only the small picture, He's busy painting the big one.

I like the song. For me, unanswered or answered prayers, its all the same, God knows its all been heard only He has the right and the very reason to grant or not grant the same.
