Mary McDonald captures the spirit and message of two popular songs that deal with the significance of prayer for the individual believer and the church as a whole. The spiritual, Down to the River to Pray, is seamlessly combined with Ken Medema's Lord, Listen to Your Children Praying. Together, they poignantly ask for the Father's love, the Spirit's power, and the grace of Jesus to direct the lives of all believers. Choirs will enjoy the flavor of this partnered song with its unhurried rhythmic style and supportive accompaniment.

These 2 popular songs: "Down To the River to Pray" (traditional, but reintroduced in the movie "O, Brother, Where Art Thou?") and Ken Medema's "Lord, Listen to Your Children Praying" flow together for an enjoyable anthem about prayer. Accessible to any choir, both youth and adults will enjoy this one. This is the SAB version, but it is also available in SATB & SSA.

The Bottom Line
