In the midst of Rocktober at First Baptist we had a hip-hop group from Washington come in called Prevailing Words. These guys did a great job. Josh and Sarah (their real names) got some misleading directions from and ended up getting there 50 minutes later than the map said they should have. We basically had 10 minutes to get everything ready including sound check, info table, mics, cd. and logistics. PW was so professional about it all and made soundcheck and setup a breeze.

Their music was great. I found out that they played and recorded all their beats and music themselves. Impressive. I also found out that they recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered their CD by themselves. Even more impressive. I can’t say enough about how professional they were in music, the way they acted, and the way they pulled it all off without a hitch.

Hearing their testimonies and talking to them, there’s no denying that they love God like whoa and give Him all the glory for their minstry. It was kinda odd at first when everything someone said got a completely sincere, “Praise God”. Seriously, I don’t think they even said thanks, almost as if they were passing the praise from them to God as if they weren’t even praised at all. That’s pretty darn cool if you ask me. What happened to the rest of the humble Christian musicians? . . .



Fire and Grace (2005)
I Won't Pretend (2007)



Josh and Sarah got married in January, 2004. Several months later, after much prayer and consideration, they combined their musical passions to create Prevailing Words. In February 2005, they released their first CD, "Fire and Grace" and embarked on the exciting adventure of sharing the music God had given them all over the country. Prevailing Words participated in several regional events including Freedom Fest in Snohomish, WA and Xfest in Stevenson, WA. They also did many local events and outreaches. Then in the fall of 2005 they took to the road; traveling from Seattle, WA to as far as Brunswick, GA they performed in 20 different venues. Now, almost 2 years later, the same energetic enthusiasm that produced "Fire and Grace" and followed them across the country is reflected in their newest release. However, “I Won’t Pretend” takes some unexpected turns! From the thrashing chorus of “My King” to the trunk knocking “Light in the Darkness”, this album is full of surprises. As diverse as the musical content is, there is one resounding theme - Jesus saves us, and then He changes us as much as we’ll let Him.

“This album is a testimony of God’s faithfulness in difficult times and of His grace. Starting with the first track, “I Won’t Pretend” expresses a longing for something deeper than the world can give us. The lyrics are an honest reflection on how we see life and how God’s Word is constantly changing that perspective. As we look at the destructive lives God has brought us out of, we can’t help but realize that there’s more to living for God than what we are doing. Our desire is to know God more, not just because of what He can do for us, but simply because He is who He is. Our passion is to continue to share with others, what God is revealing to us about life and our place in it.”
