Citizen Way’s The Lord’s Prayer | Fresh Friday

One of your favorite bands, Citizen Way, just released a new song! The song pulls straight from the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:9-13.

This, then, is how you should pray: "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." Matthew 6:9-13

Take a listen to this upbeat musical rendition of some of the most famous words of Jesus…

Ben Calhoun, the lead singer of Citizen Way, took to social media this week to talk about the story behind the song.

A few years ago, I went thorugh the toughest season of my life. We had lost our son Jerermiah to a miscarriage. We moved from Chicago to Nashville. A couple guys left the band. It was just really hard. A friend had encouraged me to pray this prayer as much as I could, realizing what it means. I get to the first line, "Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name." It just reminds me that our God is soveriegn over everything in my life and in the world, no matter what happens, past, present, and future. And I love using the words of Jesus, the way He taught us how to pray from Matthew chapter 6. Then in Revelation, you have the angels singing around the throne, "holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God almighty". And when the people of God lift up in the name of Jesus using His words, it's supernatural and we need that today. And that's why we wrote this song.
