Molitva was the debut entry for Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 performed by Marija Šerifović. An English version was also released entitled "Destiny". Marija was accompanied on stage by a 5-member girl group known as the Beauty Queens.

At the contest, the song easily qualified from the semi-final in first place with 298 points, 74 points more than its nearest rival. In the final, Serbia performed seventeenth on the night following Germany and preceding Ukraine. At the close of voting, the song won with 268 points giving Serbia its first victory as an independent state since breaking off from Montenegro a year earlier.

"Molitva" was also the first non-English winning song since Diva in 1998, as well as the first ballad to win in the 100% televoting era.

Lyrics

Ni oka da sklopim
Postelja prazna tera san
A život se topi
I nestaje brzo, k'o dlanom o dlan

K'o razum da gubim
Jer stvarnost i ne primećujem
Još uvek te ljubim
Još uvek ti slepo verujem

K'o luda, ne znam kuda
Ljubavi se nove bojim
A dane, žive rane
Više ne brojim

Molitva, kao žar na mojim usnama je
Molitva, mesto reči samo ime tvoje
Nebo zna, kao ja
Koliko puta sam ponovila
To nebo zna, baš kao ja
Da je ime tvoje moja jedina molitva

Al Bogu ne mogu lagati
Sve dok se molim
A lažem ako kažem
Da te ne volim

Molitva, kao žar na mojim usnama je
Molitva, mesto reči samo ime tvoje
Nebo zna, baš kao ja
Koliko puta sam ponovila
To nebo zna, baš kao ja
Da je ime tvoje moja molitva
(Molitva, molitva)

I nebo zna, baš kao ja
Koliko puta sam ponovila
To nebo zna, baš kao ja
Da je ime tvoje moja jedina molitva

Da je ime tvoje moja molitva

I can't close my eyes
The empty bed chases sleep away
And my life is melting away
And it's disappearing quickly, in a split second

It seems I'm losing my mind
As I don't even notice reality
I still love you
I still trust you blindly

Like crazy, I don't know where to go
I'm afraid of a new love
And the days are like open wounds
I don't count them anymore

Prayer, like ardour on my lips
Prayer, just your name, instead of words
Heaven knows, just as I do
How many times I've repeated this
Heaven knows, just as I do
That your name is my only prayer

But I can't lie to God
As long as I pray
And I'd be lying if I said
That I don't love you

Prayer, like ardour on my lips
Prayer, just your name, instead of words
Heaven knows, just as I do
How many times I've repeated this
Heaven knows, just as I do
That your name is my prayer
(Prayer, prayer)

Heaven knows, just as I do
How many times I've repeated this
Heaven knows, just as I do
That your name is my only prayer

That your name is my only prayer

Trivia
