A TRIBUTE TO OUR MILITARY – Doxology Records' artist Allen Asbury will perform, "Somebody's Praying Me Through" tonight at The Presidential Prayer Team tribute concert/event in Birmingham, Ala.
The first of three Presidential Prayer Team events (Madison, Miss. on March 21 and Springfield, Mo. on March 22) will take place at the Metropolitan Church of God at 7:00 p.m. C.T. and will feature Asbury, as well as worship leader Jimmy Fedd. In addition, video greetings from Franklin Graham, Thomas Kinkade, and Michael W. Smith will be presented.
Today's Focus on the Family radio broadcast is also scheduled to use "Somebody's Praying Me Through" in conjunction with real life prayer testimonies from soldiers who have been involved in combat situations in the Middle East.
Selected as this year's theme for the National Day of Prayer, "Somebody's Praying Me Through" is the title cut from Asbury's debut project on Doxology Records which released last year. The label is quickly preparing a new version of the song titled, "Somebody's Praying Me Through - Special Military Version" which weaves military stories of answered prayers with Scripture and the comforting lyrics of the song to create a musical testimony to the power of prayer. The CD single will be available for purchase today at the label's Web site and will also include the National Anthem by the US Army Band, "My Country 'Tis of Thee" by The American Classic Singers, as well as the original version of "Somebody's Praying Me Through" as sung by Asbury.
"It's amazing to see the impact that this song continues to have on people across the country and around the world," shares Asbury. "Sometimes the circumstances of life can leave us feeling helpless, but I believe that God hears the prayers of His people. I would encourage everyone to spend time praying for our country and the brave young men and women who have volunteered to place themselves in harm's way to protect our freedoms."
