"Prayer for a Warrior"

Did anyone read the Lion Of War series by Cliff Graham? I devoured those books! 

They are fiction, but are based on the battles of the Biblical warrior poet King David and his band of brothers, who came to be known as the Mighty Men. These warriors came to David in his most desperate hour and fought with him to claim the throne he was destined to fill.

I'm super happy/excited/proud to be a part of the "Praise and Arrows" album. It's a compilation inspired by the novels. The album features myself :), Stellar Kart, Hawk Nelson, Trip Lee, Pillar, Audio Adrenaline, Kevin Max, Jason Walker, Canon, Deraj, Jeannie Ortega, People of the Earth, All Sons and Daughters, Alisa Turner and Jeremy Rosado. 

It's available for pre-order now and VERY SOON will be available on itunes, amazon, google play and all that. I'll post the links for that when it's out!!! Click here for pre-order!

The song that I am a part of is called "Prayer for a Warrior." I wrote it with my great friend, Aaron Rice. Musically, it's EPIC...super drama and strings! (You know I love that!!) Lyrically it's moving and honest and powerful and gut wrenching all at the same time.

Picture the women praying in anticipation of the coming battle over their men. Picture the men crying out before and amidst the battle. And picture ourselves as we all cry out to God in our own battles, we make the choice to praise our Savior!!

Here are the lyrics! 

"Prayer for a Warrior" By: Kerrie Roberts, Aaron Rice

"Before me is a battle

An enemy of our God

Beneath me earth shaking

From the army charging after us

Behind me is a history

Of Holy deliverance

Above me, Almighty

The one who covers us


Oh Mighty God, Faithful God, Eternal God

Oh Holy One, Savior

Oh you care for us, shelter us, deliver us

Oh Holy One, Savior


Fight is raging, heart pounding

Soul burning up inside

Arrows flying, men crying

Yet somehow peace I find

And truth it whispers gently now

I’ve held you all along

And the fire inside of me

Grows into this song


Oh Mighty God, Faithful God, Eternal God

Oh Holy One, Savior

Oh you care for us, shelter us, deliver us

Oh Holy One, Savior


God bless these hands that are spotted with a foreign blood

These feet that stand ‘til the battle’s won

This dagger and shield that are marred with scars wielded in your name

God bless these hands that are lifted toward heaven’s throne

These feet that will walk in a holy home

When this day of war is over because of who you are


Oh Mighty God, Faithful God, Eternal God

Oh Holy One, Savior

Oh you care for us, shelter us, deliver us

Oh Holy One, Savior"
