    Cory Asbury began leading worship at his church in North Carolina at the age of 17. Even from childhood, music has always had a profound impact on him. "I'd find a CD that I really loved, that really moved my heart and just sit in my room, silent and still and just listen," Cory says. He was originally planning to attend UNC Chapel Hill when the Lord redirected his path. Through a few friends who had just graduated the One Thing internship at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, he was encouraged to go and check it out for himself. "Thinking the internship was solely dedicated to raising up young worship leaders, I decided to come. I soon found that the Lord had tricked me into something much bigger than myself." This internship required each intern to study, worship and pray in the prayer room for long hours each day. After 6 months he "realized that this was what I was made for. To sit before Him and love Him."

    Cory says that his songs usually begin with a gentle nudge or whisper from the Holy Spirit which flows out of tenderness in quiet time with God. "Usually, the Holy Spirit will give me a melody or a chord progression and that's where it all begins. From there, I continue to ask Him what He's saying...I ask, 'How can I express what I am feeling through music?'" His goal through his music is that hearts would fall more in love with Jesus, and that a deep longing to know and love Him more would be awakened. Cory says his hope is that when people listen to his songs, they'd find themselves in the presence of the Lord, that they would know the delight of God over them, and that they would find true enjoyment in spending time with Him. Cory, who currently leads worship with associate leader Jaye Thomas, is married to Anna Asbury, a prophetic singer on his worship team at the House of Prayer. He has dedicated his life to fasting, prayer and worship, for the raising up of houses of prayer all across the world.
