i:Pray is an exciting combination of songs about prayer, and songs that are prayers. There are up-tempo, powerful songs with hooks that grab you straight away, and reflective worshipful songs that inspire and release prayer. The arrangements are top quality, with a great live rock sound and powerful adult vocals, alongside a high energy children’s choir. A number of the tracks have a great contemporary dance/loop groove, that children and teenagers will relate to immediately, including 2 tracks featuring some great rapping.
Children will love this CD, but it is definitely not just for children! A number of the songs are very much “adult worship” songs also, and all of the songs are all ideal for Sunday mornings and other times when all ages worship together.
The CD also features a lovely “Taize-style” prayer song, with quiet reflective organ and guitar, and a church youth choir from Northern Ireland, and the song includes a spoken prayer specially composed and recorded for this CD by the (then) Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams.
