More Praises Than Arrows | Posted August 22, 2014
Inspired by the Lion of War book series, Praise & Arrows is an adrenaline-infused multi-style compilation. From Pillar's hardcore rock anthem "Lions Lead the Way" to the subtle cry of "Psalm 121" by All Sons & Daughters, listeners will be left energized and ready to take on a battle of their own. 

"Day of War" perfectly captures the energy and purpose of the compilation. It's hard to sit still while listening to this intensely motivating Stellar Kart opener. The lyrics emphasize resilience and standing strong in the face of opposition, "The fear is deafening / but I can hear You whispering in my soul / Don't lose hope / I will not retreat / You are here with me." The combination of powerful lyrics and exceptional music has made "Day of War" one of my favorite songs.

The harmonies of All Sons & Daughters are flawless, and "Psalm 121" immediately caught my attention. The duo musically sets the mood perfectly for the biblical lyrics: "I lift my head up to the hills and that is where my help comes from /  I don't have to be afraid / I'll never be afraid / I will find You and be still / and I know that you are here / I can hear you in the whispers / I will find you and be still. Lord you are watching over me and give me faith." This song is a beautiful, soothing overflow of praise for a God who will never give up on us.

"Prayer For a Warrior" takes on the imagery of war with spectacular lyrics. You can just about feel the desperation of a people during a war season when Kerrie Roberts croons "Oh Mighty God, Faithful God, Eternal God / Oh Holy One, Savior / Oh you care for us, shelter us, deliver us / Oh Holy One, Savior." The way Kerrie brings an element of vulnerability into the lyrics is astounding and empowering.

Closing Thoughts: 
Fans of pop/rock music will be particularly pleased with Praise & Arrows. I loved how there was a mixture of faster, blood-pumping songs ("20:17") and comforting ballads ("The Covering"). It truly made listening to Praise & Arrows more exciting and interesting. The lyrical content is motivational, inspirational and balances perfectly with the message of praise. This compilation is perfect for trying to find peace in life's turbulence.
