“Yet you stand there and question a —– that tries hard, and finds a way when you keep dealing them fucked up cards”
This song is brilliant yet some could call it…controversial.
But who hasn’t questioned a higher power?
Whether you believe in something or you don’t, you’ve reached this crossroad: contemplating life, and whether or not, something more powerful was at play.
Joe is not different.
“Pray For Me” finds Joe having an intense back-and-forth conversation and revaluation with God.
With everything Joe has been through, he starts questioning whether there is a God. His life was difficult. He did some wrong things but managed to turn his life around. Why did God give such trials and tribulations to Joe?
As a matter of fact, why would someone who loves each and every one, put evil in the world?
Joe brings up this valid point and others that I found myself wanting answers to.
The syndromes, diseases, poverty, wars, hunger, etc. all these are problems in the world. You’d think a person as loving as Him would want his children to live in a Utopia like society. But that’s not real life. Life has all of them. People are suffering. Who would want to see their children suffer?
