Kingdom Come Down

Album: More Like Jesus (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain is a committed Christian who found faith through a pastor called Paula White. Paula later became his wife and Cain started leading worship at her church, The New Destiny Christian Center in Orlando, Florida.
  • This worship song recorded for Cain's solo More Like Jesus album was inspired by a sermon delivered by his wife. "It's sort of like a calling, if you will, for an atmosphere, so that we can be blessed with a spirit in our house and that spirit can come down upon us," he explained to Billboard. "We're calling upon a Holy Spirit presence. We're in church in one purpose and that is to praise God and cherish the presence of the Lord."
