“I just wanted to be a voice amongst it all saying, ‘Hey, I believe there’s one way and it’s Jesus,’” said Wickham. “‘And I’m not going to be ashamed about it. Because I’ve found so much abundant life.’ And so that was definitely written in response to a lot of personal and external things that have come my way.”
Wickham has shared previously that his faith deepened during the pandemic. He saw people being moved by his music and was “challenged to really believe in prayer and challenged for it to be my go-to in the big things and the small things.” He decided to study prayer throughout the Bible, a process that not only led to him creating the “On Our Knees” devotional but also led him to move away from “lifestyle Christianity” into a deeper relationship with God.
Now, instead of worrying about what he sounds like when he prays, Wickham talks to God with an eager expectancy “that brings so much joy and excitement.”
“I can’t wait to ask God for things according to his will in the name of Jesus,” he said.
