This album is a verse-by-verse paraphrase of Paul’s letter to the Church in Philippi. The Book of Philippians in the New Testament has 4 chapters; this EP has 4 tracks.

I wrote 100% of the rap lyrics in The Prayer Room. The inspiration for this project came from a weekly worship set with Justin Rizzo ( and team. As a team we spent about 3 months meditating on Philippians and singing through the content every Wednesday morning for 2 hours.

These rhymes are a result of those worship sets.

With the exception of a few lines, I tried to stick as carefully as possible to the original text. My goal was to communicate Paul's heart and stay true to his theology.

So grab your Bible and follow along!
