Christians across the UK and beyond will be greatly inspired by the newly released song, ‘We Seek Your Kingdom’. Sung to the tune of Abide With Me, it calls every believer to play a positive role in their community with the aim of transforming, reviving, and healing society.
We Seek Your Kingdom is a joint project from the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC) and Thy Kingdom Come. The LICC exists to empower Christians to make a difference for Christ in daily life and Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer initiative. It invites people across the nations to join in a wave of prayer during the 10 days between Ascension and Pentecost.
You can watch the video below which was filmed In Luton. It features Donna Akodu, Lou Fellingham, Andy Flannagan and Noel Robinson. Donna is a worship leader based in South West London; Lou is a singer-songwriter from Brighton, known as the lead singer of Phatfish; Andy Flannagan is a London-based, Irish singer-songwriter who now leads Christians in Politics; and Noel is a musician at Integrity Music and director at the Kingdom Worship Movement in London.
The powerful lyrics, written by Andy Flannagan, Noel Robinson and Graham Hunter, include this verse: “Peace, truth, and justice reigning everywhere / With us be present in our public square / Fill all who lead with your integrity / Transform, revive, and heal society.”
The song is already making an impact with viewers and may well be the next viral Christian video to come out of Lockdown. Viewer comments include:
- “When was the last time we heard a worship song about engaging all spheres of society?” Sheridan asks, “Really well done and so needed.”
- “I can see us singing these words for many generations,” says Clair.
- “A wonderful prayer and Spirit-filled song. Transform, revive and heal society, Lord!” says Andy.
- “Love this song and even more the message behind it! God, do your thing! We need You in our society so badly!” says Evi.
