What if His People Prayed


What if the armies of the Lord
picked up and dusted off their swords?
Vowed to set the captive 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 stoned hell's rusted Gates.

What if his people prayed?
If those who bear His name
would only seek His face,
and turn from their own ways.

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?

What if his people prayed?
If those who bear His name
would only seek His face
and turn from their own ways.
He said that they would hear.
His promise has been made:
He'll answer loud and clear.

If only we would pray ...

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

What if his people prayed?
If those who bear his name
would only seek his face,
and turn from their own ways.
He said that they would hear.
His promise has been made.
He'll answer loud and clear.

What if His people prayed?
