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 and stand upon God’s promise

And stormed hell’s rusty gates

 

CHORUS:

What if His people prayed

And those who bear 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

 

CHORUS:

What if His people prayed

And those who bear His name

Would humbly seek His face

And turn from their own way

 

He said that they would hear

His promise has been made

He’s answered loud and clear, Yeah

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

 

CHORUS:
What if His people prayed

And those who bear His name

Would humbly seek His face, Yeah

And turn from their own way

He said that they would hear

His promise has been made

He’s answered loud and clear, Yeah

If only we would pray

What if His people prayed
