A spiritual song from the Luo people of Kenya, this arrangement is highly accessible and authentic. With or without percussion, it has simple harmonies, plenty of repetition, conservative vocal ranges, and many teaching moments that make it great for choirs of all ages. A phonetic pronunciation guide and word-for-word translation of the Luo language is provided in the octavo. Fun to rehearse and perform, your choirs will want to sing this one again and again!

When you pray for long
Is a blessing
Now If
When you pray for long, He will bless you
David, the faithful prayed regularly
He amazingly prayed for long
When you pray
The faithful God will protect you
When you pray to God

CLICK HERE: David O. Akombo performance notes
This song may be accompanied by improvised African percussion instruments such as djembes, maracas etc. The song text is taken from 1 Samuel 23:14-29 which tells the story where David stayed in the wilderness strongholds in the hills in the desert of Ziph. Day after day, Saul searched for him. But God did not give David into his hands. While David was at Horesh in the desert of Ziph, he learned that Saul had come out to take his life. And Saul’s son Jonathan went to David at Horesh, and helped him find strength in God. “Don’t be afraid” he said, my father Saul will not lay a hand on you. You will be King over Israel and I will be second to you. Saul’s attempt to kill David, even searching for him with his army in the wilderness failed. Because God protected David and guided him to rely on Him faithfully through prayer.
