Song History

Let Us Pray

Received by Dennis Jernigan on May 2, 2009
For the Body of Christ

In 2004 and 2005, I had the honor and privilege
of writing the theme song for each of those years
for the National Day of Prayer. Even though I have
not had the opportunity to minister at the national
event since that time, I still minister somewhere
each year for a NDP event…and I still pray 
every day! For some reason, I woke up singing
this chorus on Saturday morning, just a few days
before the NDP 2009. The entire song was born
while I lay in bed, frantically writing away before
I had even said ‘good morning’ to my wife! I shared
the song for the first time publicly in
Boerne, TX the following Thursday. My
prayer is that it would find its way to the
national level for next year!

Pray without ceasing.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV



When we pray, even a mountain can be moved! 

When we pray, distant hope comes into view! 

When we pray the power of heaven flows right through! 

Let us pray! Let us pray! Let us pray! 

Verse One

And watch the power of God bring captive hearts to freedom! 

And watch the hand of God put the enemy to flight! 

And watch the love of God cause sin and shame to melt away! 

Let us pray! Let us pray! 

Repeat Chorus

Verse Two

And watch the fire of God turn doubting hearts to passion! 

And watch the Light of God pierce through the darkest night! 

And watch the presence of our King melt hurt and fear away! 

Let us pray! Let us pray!

Repeat Chorus

 Oh, Give thanks to the Lord

This song was inspired by a friend 
(and former fellow school bus driver),
Randy Miller.  After ministering at his
church one 
Sunday, he came to me
and encouraged me with the Scripture, 
Psalm 107:1-2, and told me he felt 
God was going to give me a song 
from these verses.  Guess what?  
He did!  Little did Randy know of the
magnitude of impact these verses 
were to have on my life.  Taking these
words to heart in 1983, God led me
to publicly share my testimony of what
I had specifically been redeemed from. 
This song even came back to my mind
and I began to use it again to encourage
the body of Christ.  When we realize
our position in Christ of righteousness
and holiness by virtue of His sacrificial 
blood, I believe we cannot help but
lift up our hearts in gratitude to Him.

Dennis Jernigan

Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,
Whom He has redeemed from 
the hand of the adversary…

Psalm 107:1-2 NASB

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has 
strengthened me, because He considered
me faithful, putting me into service, even
though I was formerly a blasphemer and 
a persecutor and a violent aggressor. 
Yet I was shown mercy because I acted
ignorantly in unbelief; and the grace of 
our Lord was more than abundant, with
the faith and love which are found in 
Christ Jesus. It is a trustworthy statement,
deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus
came into the world to save sinners, 
among whom I am foremost of all. 
Yet for this reason I found mercy, so 
that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ 
might demonstrate His perfect patience
as an example for those who would 
believe in Him for eternal life. Now to
the King eternal, immortal, invisible, 
the only God, be honor and glory 
forever and ever. Amen.

I Timothy 1:12-17 NASB
