'The Prayer' Danny Gokey And Natalie Grant

Christian superstars Danny Gokey and Natalie Grant come together for a beautiful duet of ‘The Prayer.’


This iconic song was originally written by David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Alberto Testa and Tony Renis in 1999. Decades later, the powerful words still ring true in the hearts of so many around the world.

“So let the children remember the sun
Let them dance, let them soar
For their lives have begun
Let the children engender the rain
As the river runs through fields
Forever subsiding their pain
Prayer”

The song was written in both English and Italian for contemporary artists Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli to sing solo. Later, the two superstars came together for an incredible duet of this beautiful song that received rave reviews. That vocal performance propelled the tune into an instant classic.

‘The Prayer’ went on to win the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 1999 and was nominated for both a Grammy and an Academy Award. Now, two other powerhouse singers are lending their vocals to the song.

Danny Gokey and Natalie Grant are two of the most well known musicians in the Christian music scene. Together, they put their own unique spin on this special song and it’s absolutely incredible. When you truly listen to the words, it reminds us of the wonder and power that comes from our Lord.

When we put our trust in Him, He will truly lead us exactly where we need to be. Who else has serious chills right now?
