What happens when the power of prayer intersects with the power of God? An encounter with God! And Hillsong Worship’s song, “Awake My Soul” is about just that. It’s a song that can grab your attention and help you lift your eyes to the Lord and sing it out in strength with a smile on your face. Plus, Tasha Cobbs Leonard on guest vocals?! YES, please!

This year hasn’t been an easy one for most of us. But the good news is that we have HOPE, because of Jesus. God can turn our mourning into dancing. Big Daddy Weave’s song, “This Is What We Live For” was inspired by that.

Mike Weaver says, “When a person realizes the hope that they have in Jesus and that becomes the greater voice in a person’s life, that reveals the purpose that’s bigger than the pain. It’s like when the prophet Jeremiah says in 20:9 What if I decided to stop talking about you? Jeremiah says that God’s word is in his heart like a fire, a fire shut up in his bones. He can’t hold it in. We created this song as an anthem to say, this is what we live for. We want to do what You say, to go where You say go, to let the whole world know that You’re the light in the darkness. We want to take the love of God everywhere and lift the name of God higher, so that all will be welcomed to You.”
