01. What If His People Prayed?

Casting Crowns
by Casting Crowns



 

What if the armies of the Lord
Picked up and dusted off their swords
Vowed to set the captives free
And not let satan have one more

What if the church for heaven's sake
Finally stepped up to the plate
Took a stand upon God's promise
And stormed hell's rusty gates

What if His people prayed
And those who bare His name
Would humbly seek His face
And turn from their own way

And what would happen if we prayed
For those raised up to lead the way
Then maybe kids in school could pray
And unborn children see light of day

What if the life that we pursue
Came from a hunger for the truth
What if the family turned to Jesus
Stopped asking Oprah what to do

He said that He would hear
His promise has been made
He'll answer loud and clear
If only we would pray

If my people called by my name
If they'll humble themselves and pray
If my people called by my name
if they'll humble themselves and pray

What if His people prayed

Behind the Song:
'A lot of my songs are written to the church. Iím a youth pastor; itís just what I do. This song comes from 2 Chronicles 7:14: ďIf my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.Ē Itís just that verse and reminding people that the promise is there. Thereís no rocket science. Itís almost written out of frustration in myself. I know the answers, why donít I just do this?Ē Ė Mark Hall (Casting Crowns)
