Brooke wrote the concept for Lord Have Mercy around a year ago (2019). We were having regular conversations of where the modern day charismatic church was compared to the biblical expression in Acts. We couldn’t help but see a stark juxtaposition.
A year later, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and dispersed the members of churches from meeting in buildings to suddenly being home with, at most, ten people at a time. This pandemic brought this song back to Brooke’s attention. The song seemed to walk in and finish itself during a writing session with Brooke and Sam. This was nothing short of a God moment. Two weeks later, Lord Have Mercy was complete.
