What if the people prayed

I have recently been introduced to and been inspired by the music of Casting Crowns.

The song below is based upon 2 Chronicles 7:14

Wht 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 on God's promise
And stormed hell's rusty gates

What if His people prayed
And those who bear his name
Would humble 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

What if the people prayed

(Lyrics by Mark Hall/ music Casting Crowns)

So why don't we?
Let's do it!
Right now!

God bless

This is brilliant Carol - let's do it. To quote Ghandi (I think he was a pentecostal?) "Be the change that you want to see in the world."

Amen! Amen! Amen!

PS Got a date for the Op - July 4th! (Independence day)
