Sanctus Real, “Pray”

Contemporary Christian pop-rock band Sanctus Real has released Pray, a new single, in observation and support of the National Day of Prayer, an annual observance created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman, held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the United States. Pray was written by Matt Hammitt, the band’s lead vocalist and primary songwriter, out of a concern for these troubled times, both nationally and personally, as a challenge to pray without ceasing, and to stand firm on truth, righteousness, salvation and the word of God. In this sense, Pray is a timely, moving, appropriate song that should move believers across the world to pray for their nations, and for the United States in particular.

PRAY Lyrics
Sanctus Real

I bow my head to pray, I don’t know what to say
I’m not sure how to fix the things I’m dealing with
I’m in a desperate place, I need to share the weight
But I just don’t know how, to let it all pour out
Though I’m silent, my heart is crying
Cause I was made to come to You

So I pray
God I need You more than words can say
Right here in this moment
You know my heart, You know my need
You know every part of me
So even if it’s just to speak Your name
I’m gonna pray

I failed to find the time, but You’ve been calling out
I let the days go by as if I could live without
But it’s gotta be here now, I won’t be pulled away
Cause it’s just You and I, so let the world around us fade

As I pray
God I need You more than words can say
Right here in this moment
You know my heart, You know my need
You know every part of me
So even if it’s just to speak Your name
I’m gonna pray
I’m gonna pray

(Father)
Will You meet me here right now?
(Father)
I surrender, lay it down
(Father)
And every time I close my eyes
I know that I was made
To lift my hands and pray
I lift my hands and pray

You know my heart, You know my need
And every single part of me
So even if it’s just to speak Your name
I’m gonna pray
I’m gonna pray

You know my heart, You know my need
You know every part of me
I bring willing words and one heart [?]
Take it as an offering
