What a Prayer Can Do
     by the singing Cookes

There was a king he got a letter from a mighty army without number
he spread it out there for the Lord to get a view
God sent a promise and just one angel that
devils army met its doom
why its just amazing what a prayer can do.

Chorus

It moved mountains parted rivers brought the dead to life again
I've called upon an ol' prayer warrior a time or two
if your in trouble I'll go down on my bended knees
for you its just amazing what a prayer can do

I see a momma and a baby he's fought for life the whole night thru
seems hope was gone oh how the tears fell not just a few
but there's old Grandpa over in the corner
he knew the one who'd pull him thru
that babys still alive that shows what prayer can do

Chorus

It moved mountains parted rivers brought the dead to life again
I've called upon an ol' prayer warrior a time or two
if your in trouble I'll go down on my bended knees for you
its just amazing what a prayer can do
It's just amazing what a prayer can do!


I would like to know if anyone knows where I can find sheet music for this song?  Thanks, Dana

I think if you check around for Mike Upright's music, you might find the chords or music.  He sings it so beautifully.

It's Amazing, What a Prayer Can Do


There was a king, who got a letter,
a mighty army without number.
He spread it out, for the Lord to get a view.
God sent a promise and just one angle,
(that) the devil's army (had) met its doom.
It's just amazing, what a prayer can do.

[Chorus]
It's moved mountains, parted rivers, brought the dead to live again.
I've called aponed an old prayer warrior, a time or two.
When you're in trouble, I'll go down on my bended knees for you.
It's just amazing, what a prayer can do.

I knew a mother and her baby.
She (he) fought for life the whole night through.
Seemed all hope was gone.
Oh, how'd the tries had falled, not just a few.
But, there's ol' grandpa in the corner,
he knew the blood would see her through.
That baby's still alive.
That shows what prayer can do.

[Repeat Chorus]

*This is how I sing it, and I think it sounds better like this.
