Do it, Lord
This song is a great statement about how worship, compassion and missions go together. My brother, Dale Walker once said,
"Worship without compassion will just become ritual and compassion without worship will just become works. "
Worship brings the power of unity like nothing else, so it is powerful when hundreds of people cry out and say, "Let Your kingdom come! Let what's happening in Heaven, happen right here right now on earth!"
In my travels, I have seen more then my share of the injustice in the world, especially as it pertains to the poor. This is part of what gave me the idea to write a song that talked about seeing things in the future and praying them in a prophetic way.
At the end of the day, more than anything this song is actually a prayer of faith, and perhaps "calling things that are not as though they were" (Romans 4:17). Nothing can help communicate a sense of future hope, prayer, and a sense of expectation the way music can.
I sat on this idea for a long time because I just couldn’t figure out how to start. I then emailed the idea to my brother Dale Walker who is a missionary pastor and he sent me several ideas that I then lost for about a year. Eventually I had the song semi-done for about another year until I just decided I must finish it. I guess writing this song felt like unfamiliar territory and a battle within itself. Anyways, it has turned out to be a helpful prayer meeting song and one I hope will spark faith and revival in many places!
