I Say a Little Prayer is a song written by songwriters Burt Bacharach and Hal David which was a Top Ten hit in 1967 for Dionne Warwick.

Intended by lyricist Hal David to convey a woman's concern for her beau who's serving in Vietnam, "I Say a Little Prayer" was recorded by Dionne Warwick in a 9 April 1966 session. Like several Bacharach compositions, "I Say a Little Prayer" contains passages written in unusual time signatures.

"I Say a Little Prayer" remains Warwick's highest charting hit written by Bacharach and David while "(Theme from) Valley of the Dolls" remains Warwick's highest charting solo hit.
