Initially, the listener is given the impression that this song is about Lecrae's concern for somebody struggling in his Christian faith. There is a twist however, and by the end we learn that the person being prayed for is the rapper himself. Speaking to us about the song in a 2012 interview
, Lecrae revealed that the song started out as a prayer that he penned during a rough period in his life. "When I started writing it, I was on a plane," said the rapper. "I was going through kind of a tough time - all the things that were articulated in the song. So when I wrote it, I was on plane writing, and I was really writing out a prayer, like a realistic prayer, bringing out my plans for God, and then I was like, man, this is a song, and I just turned it into a song. I thought people would relate to it and people would resonate with it. I wrote it like I was talking about somebody, and then at the end, did a little reveal."
