Artist Statement

"Wake" is a single from the NFTRY's very first album, "Inventory". It is a cry from the heart of believers that want to be in line with God's word and spirit. With so many things available in today's world to distract us and deter us from focusing on the beauty of God and glory of Christ, we want to be constantly reminded to let our light shine before men so that they may glorify our Father in heaven , and if there is anything lulling us to sleep so that we aren't walking in a manner worthy - wake us.

How it fits into contest

The spiritual battle we all fight begins within ourselves, the things we battle that seek to destroy our devotion to God. This expresses that fight by asking God, the one who has already won the battle for us, to keep us and set our feet and focus on him. From there every victory that there is to be had, is had.
