WHAT IF HIS PEOPLE PRAYED?
Casting crowns

Capo 1

D Dsus4 D
What if the armies of the Lord
D Dsus4 D
Picked up and dusted off their swords
G Gsus4 G
Vowed to set the captives free
Bm G D
And not let Satan have one more

D Dsus4 D
What if the church, for Heaven's sake
D G Bm
Finally stepped up to the plate
Bm G D
Took a stand upon God's promise
G D
And stormed Hell's rusty gates



N.C. (X) A Bm G
What if His people prayed
G Bm A
And those who bear His name
A A Bm G
Would humbly seek His face
G Bm A
And turn from their own way



D Dsus4 D
And what would happen if we prayed
D Dsus3 D
For those raised up to lead the way
G Gsus4 G
Then maybe kids in school could pray
Bm G D
And unborn children see light of day


D Dsus4 D
What if the life that we pursue
D G Bm
Came from a hunger for the truth
Bm G D
What if the family turned to Jesus
G D
Stopped asking Oprah what to do


N.C. (X) A Bm G
What if His people prayed
G Bm A
And those who bear His name
A A Bm G
Would humbly seek His face
G Bm A
And turn from their own way

N.C. (X) A Bm G
He said that they would hear
G Bm A
His promise has been made
A A Bm G
He'd answer loud and clear
G Bm A
If only we would pray

Refrain
Em G Bm A
If My people called by My name
Em G D A
If they'll humble themselves and pray
Em G Bm A
If My people called by My name
Em G D A
If they'll humble themselves and pray

LONG CHORUS (With echo of Refrain)

N.C. A Bm G
What if His people prayed?
Em G Bm D
If My people called by My name ...

The First chord of the refrain should be Em7...........or atleast it sounds better


Zayru - 2004-06-19

Thank you so much for putting the words up there. I never would have been able to play it otherwise.

God bless

WHAT DOES CAPO MEAN?


chelsyalbertson - 2004-07-22

Jesusfreak,

hehe...you must be beggining! :)
a capo is a device used to raise the "pitch" (for lack of better word) of the guitar...you can find one at any local music store!
god bless (and good luck!)


righteousbro77 - 2004-07-27

This is a powerful song... I can't wait to start working on it. Thanks!

Grimertop - 2004-08-25

This is one of my favoraite songs by casting crowns. The words definately helped, too. Thanks, zgporter. I love the message of this song, and I can't wait to try it out!


amenbrother - 2004-10-21

all in christ - 2005-02-27

this tab is right thanks for putting the words on it helped alot

you can do all things in christ


arguitarist - 2005-03-08

Jesusfreak,

make sure you get a full capo and not a half capo. i almost made that mistake


play4christ - 2005-05-04

How do you play dsus4 and dsus3


gsus_freak7 - 2005-05-05

what doez the N.C. mean? I seen it alot but i dont know what to do


smudge8 - 2005-06-06

NC means no chord. So just mute your guitar strings with your fretting hand and strum the strings to make that nice percussive noise.

Get a Kyser quick-change capo if you can, they rock.

And as nice as it is to have the lyrics, I didn't even see them there until after I'd nutted out the song. The trick is to play the CD while you have the chords there in front of you and try to play along :)


trumpeter4him - 2005-06-07

e-2
b-3
g-2
d-4
a-2
e-2


adessmith - 2005-09-01

Does anyone know what kinda amps and effects these guys use? I have a line6 PODxt Live I use and I always have a hard time finding patches for christian songs so I just make my own to emulate specific guitar rigs. I just cant find a good distortion that is close to what you hear on this song.


Hedied4me - 2005-11-07

hey,
Thanks for posting the chords and lyrics. :-) <>< ><>

Hey thanks for putting the lyric's, I'm just starting so this really help's

God Bless


bjnagy - 2006-06-06

Please please stop relying on the capo. Learn to play the guitart without one. You can play any one of the chords you see here without the capo they are called bar chords. Please stop relying on the capo. I have seen Casting crowns seven times in concert and I have never seen eith er of the guitarists play with a capo once. I'm not criticizing I truly am not for I appreciate everyone's effort here, however it is frustrating for me to see that no one seems to know how to play in the Key it was written wothout using a capo and playing "Cowboy Chords."


PsychoPreacher - 2006-07-11

Thanks for the capo chords. I've been playing for 12 years and can play all the bar chords, but with the huge song sets I do playing with the capo gives me a break.


ChristGuitar07 - 2006-07-13

How do you do a dsus4 & a dsus3,i'm sort of new to the guitar,i've only been playing for 1 1/2.

thanks
Matt

Power In God Speed,
Monkey Bob
