TIERRADAWN the Maryland based artist breaks into the gospel music scene with an unforgettable new single titled GLORY TO YOUR NAME featuring Jumbo Ane.
This song was birthed from a place of prayer. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Cornerstone Church created an initiative of 12 noon intercessory prayer for the nation and to call upon the name of the Lord for mercy. I began praying like Daniel — 3 times daily as it related to the nation, the state of the world, and personal inquiries. This consecrated prayer time many times ended up in a time of worship and praise to God.
On this particular 12 noon prayer time, we were reminded about Jehoshaphat from 2 Chronicles 20 who went to war against a huge army from Edom, men from Moab, Ammon and Mount Seir. Before war was declared or any victory had been one, a sound of praise to the Lord was released because of His glory and holiness. They gave thanks to the Lord for His faithful love continues forever. What resulted was nothing short of a miracle. Jehoshaphat’s enemies self-destructed; they destroyed one another.
The Lord made them happy because all their enemies were dead!
This song is a song of praise and thanksgiving to God for who Yahweh is in our lives. Before the storm is over, we give praise. In the midst of being overwhelmed, we give thanksgiving. Being disillusioned and surrounded on all sides, we can lift up a Hallelujah praise to our God because of His glory! We give GLORY TO YOUR NAME!
