In this season of lockdown, worship leader and songwriter Phil Wickham has spent time at home recording some of his favorite worship songs. He has released his take of Bethel Music's anthem "Raise a Hallelujah."
Wickham writes: "Thanks to Jonathan Helser, Melissa Helser, Molly Skaggs & Jake Stevens for this massive and moving anthem! What a song! I think my favorite line is "I'll raise a hallelujah louder than the unbelief." It reminds me of the story in Mark 9 where a father is asking Jesus to heal his child. The man says to Jesus "I believe, but help my unbelief!" Who else can relate to this prayer?! I most definitely can. Lord we believe in your healing power and unfailing love. We believe you can part seas and move mountains and heal hearts. Help our unbelief! Lead us into new heights of faith and trust. We raise a hallelujah for we know you are worthy!"
