Every OH PRAY song has a foundation in scripture AND has been kid, choir, and car sing-a-long tested.
Teachers and Worship Leaders…
OH PRAY wants to make your job easy!
Kids love the videos, the tunes are catchy, and there are performance-ready instrumental tracks perfect for parent programs or worship services.
Song descriptions, with music sample and link for sheet music and soundtracks, are below — beginning with “Songs for Every Season” — with “Christmas Songs” at the end.
Songs for Every Season
Let Them March!
Based on Matthew 19:14. Verses tell the story of the children trying to see Jesus, disciples sending them away, and Jesus calling out, “Let them come, come, come, come” to him! This is a great reminder to young and old … come like children to the Father. Let them march, ba-bum-bum-bum; let them drum, da-dum-dum-dum; and let them sing, la-la-la-la! Enthusiastic praises that Jesus loves to hear!
A Little Bit Here & There
An upbeat tune with a great message of caring for others! God places people in our lives and calls us to respond and serve — just a little bit here and there, spreading hope, cheer, and love as his disciples. 1 Corinthians 3: 5-8 reminds us that Gods assigns each of us to a task; some are called to plant the seeds and others will water them, but God will make it grow. Inspired by watching our grandkids lovingly care for their great-grandmother.
Do you know how to bubble-bubble-burst? Psalm 98:4 tells us not only to praise God, but to burst into jubilant song! Children bubble-bubble with joy, expressing excitement from head to toe. When we think about Jesus’ gift of salvation, we should all “bubble-bubble and praise God all day long!”
Making grace a part of family life is one way we can teach kids to give thanks, daily, in everything! (1 Thessalonians 5:18). So why say grace when you can sing it? Dinner Blessings takes singing grace as a family or group to a whole new level of harmony. Thank you Lord for friends, blessings enough to share, and His grace.
Give It To The Lord in Prayer!
This catchy tune based on Philippians 4:6 reminds kids that no matter what happens in their lives they need to give their worries up to the Lord in prayer. As Psalm 86:7 tells us, “When I am in trouble, I call to God because he answers me!”
Little Kids Who Sing…
With child-like faith, the littlest Oh Pray singer explains that “it only takes one voice to start a choir!” Just like Elihu in Job 32:6-10 taught, God can use even the young to speak!
Older kids or adults can sing the counter-melody in this two-part rendition of everyone’s favorite, Jesus Loves Me. Listen closely, because “little kids who sing have much to say!” Based on Job 32:6-10.
A lullaby tune to gently rock your child to sleep, wrapped in the assurance of God’s love. Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”
Sing La! Shout Yo!
“God sent us his favorite son, but our work has just begun.” From kangaroos to bumble bees, there are so many things our amazing God has created for us (Psalm 104:24.) Children love to sing, jump and shout their praises, especially when they can do it with the Oh Pray kids showing them how and why! Great song for choreographed movements.
Why Did He Call Us Sheep?
Baa! … Baa!
Isaiah 53:6. “We, like sheep, have been led astray.” This song whimsically asks and answers that very important question, “Why does God refer to us as sheep?” Maybe because we are lost or wandering aimlessly, easily misled as sheep, and desperately in need of the Good Shepherd?
Be Not Afraid!
This Christmas theme reinforces God’s message through His angels to “Be Not Afraid!” … God is always in control! Four easy to remember verses with clapping rhythm lead into a catchy chorus. Based on Luke 1 & 2.
Going To Bethlehem…
Kids love singing the nativity story with this fun syncopated rhythm. The chorus begins with a kid-pleasing shout of “So!” as they proclaim they are headed to Bethlehem to find the place where Jesus Christ was born! Based on Luke 2 and Matthew 2.
Is There Room In The Inn?
Mary and Joseph are on their way to Bethlehem, bearing the child of our Lord. Angels are watching over and guiding them, but they need a place to stay. They search place to place and find no rooms available (Luke 2: 7.) Is there room in our hearts? Are we willing to open the door and let them in? They are almost here… knock, knock…
Shhh, The Lord’s Here
“Repent and be forgiven — the prophecy is clear!” The true blessing of Advent season — is the reminder that this little baby, our Lord, brings forgiveness to us. “The Savior’s birth on Christmas day brings hope, peace and joy to all!” Based on Christ’s first words, Matthew 4:17; 1 John 1:9.
