Hi! Would greatly appreciate some help identifying a song.

In my younger years, I worked at a lot of weddings. One ceremony, a certain song played during a slideshow that I cannot remember. Googling different parts that I can remember hasn't led to the name.

Here's the part of the chorus that I can remember from the song (may not be 100% on each word):

I'll be praying for you
Without even knowing your name
....... (some other lines here)
If we trust in the Lord to guide us
And pray with all of our might
He will bring us together forever
When the time is right

Ring any bells to anyone? Thanks!

Hi! Just bumping this to see if anyone knows this song. Still stuck in my head and haven't had any luck searching for it on the web.

Perhaps providing some sort of musical genre. Rock Ballad? CCM? Acoustic? Electric? Etc...

Is it "Wait For Me" by Rebecca St. James?

Thanks for the suggestion! It's a ballad for sure. Don't remember if the background was an acoustic guitar or a piano. Just for the feel of the song, it was played in a wedding during a slide show that had photos of the couple as they grew together towards the big day.

Appreciate the idea AuntieAnt, but checked the lyrics to that one and it's not the one. Thinking the primary singer was male but not 100%.

quick addition - pretty sure the wedding was in 2000, so the song would be from that year or earlier

^ What brother Ugly said. Is it Christian rap? Alternative rock? Contemporary?

I googled the first line and Kesha came up. I googled the second line and got nothing. I only had 10 seconds to look so you might have better luck if you try. Also if the song comes on you can ask your phone what song is this and it will listen and tell you.

Thanks. Yeah that's the same problem I've been getting. Every string of words I can remember comes up blank (or as that Kesha song).

Problem is I've only ever heard the song at that one wedding. It must not be very common considering Google comes up blank. Have even tried searching generic terms to fit (christian wedding song [or ballad]). Name will turn up eventually though.

Think I finally remembered the missing lines from the chorus. This is how I think it went:

I'll be praying for you
Without even knowing your name.
And deep down inside I hope that you are
Doing just the same.
Cuz if we trust in the Lord to guide us,
And pray with all of our might,
He will bring us together forever
When the time is right.

Couple words may not be exact but that's my best recollection. It's a slow ballad w/ an acoustic guitar background. Lead singer is a male. Year is 2000 or earlier. Hope this is enough to extract the song title from someone's memory. Thanks!

There are always some guys around here claiming to be prophets...

I think all you have to do is ask one of them.

Interesting,and you posted this also in another Christian chat style site that I'm a member of so maybe I can help more "efficiently".

Hmm actually one question you are "actually serious" right?
because strangely enough both of these posts here on Christian Chat,match pretty much exactly with the two posts on the "other" Christian site,just wanna be sure you aren't "sending people on a wild goose chase" for "fun" that might sound "odd" but I've seen it happen before,please answer me,and then I'll see what to do.

Hi. The post in two different sites was to try and reach as many people as possible. I just cut/paste the same post on each. This is definitely a real search and not a wild goose chase, so to speak.

I was searching for the same thing a few years back and found a thread where someone mentioned the song but didn't know the name either. Since that link wasn't popping up on Google, and since various Google search strings didn't reveal the name, I figured this would be the best way to possibly find the name. Appreciate your help.
