Video Paddy Kelly - Pray, Pray, Pray

a music song inspired by Medjugorje

An excerpt from an interview with Paddy Kelly in Medjugorje: Medjugorje - Oasis of Peace.

By your last song, you want to tell tell the world - „People, pray.“ Is it so?

Paddy Kelly (John Paul Mary): I have written the song „Pray, pray, pray“ after my visit to Medjugorje, inspired by Medjugorje. I think, that these songs and video will lead people to thinking. And that is already enough. Because, when a man wants to change the world, he must start at his own. Thus, I cannot say „People, you all must pray“, but „I have to pray“. This is the first music fruit of my experiences with Medjugorje.

Paddy Kelly - Pray, Pray, Pray lyrics

The world is like a river of which we drink
but our sins pollute the water
And now the river is flooded so we must build
and ark of faith and trust in divine providence
I was in a room of darkness it wasn't
enough to open the window for air
I had to unlock the door so I searched for
the key and what I found was
Our Lady of Medugorje saying to:

Chorus:

Pray, pray pray pray, pray pray pray,
for a happier day, oh come on and
pray, pray pray pray, pray pray pray,
and the Lord will show you the way.

Me and my brothers and sisters we were struggling
between heaven and hell
We found it hard to understand how we got
sunk into a spiral of negative and demonic spells
So we went on a pilgrimage searching for healing
at the heavenly wells
We came across a wise man telling us children it's very
simple, conversion, mass the sacraments and

Chorus

Oh we've got to pray, pray pray pray,
pray pray pray for a happier day

Need a childlike faith to enter into heaven
'til the harvesters come don't be afraid

We all have our crosses to carry if we carry
them humbly there's no need to worry
If we forgive we'll be forgiven then our
purified hearts will feel the
presence of God's eternal love burn inside
I ain't no religious expert but I don't have to
be to know that God ain't illusion
I'm testifying what I witness 'cause a faith
without acts is a dead faith that's why
I wrote this song so we can

Chorus

Oh we've got to pray, pray pray pray,
pray pray pray for a happier day

Pray pray pray for a happier day
Got to pray for a better day
Pray pray pray for a happier day
Got to pray for a better day
Pray pray pray for a happier day
Got to pray for a better day
Pray pray pray for a happier day
Got to pray for a better day
Pray pray pray for a happier day

 

For God to live in your hearts, you must love.
