The powerful proclamation of trust in God originated from a FaceTime call in late 2019 between Phil Wickham and the co-founder of Bethel Music, Brian Johnson. The two started bouncing song ideas back and forth, then Johnson expressed his desire to pen something around a phrase he saw on a tattoo with praying hands: "I fight on my knees."
Wickham thought it was a great idea and knew where to go with it. "I sat down at the piano," he told New Release Today
. "Brian and I came up with the chorus. We knew we had a special song, and that churches would be singing it."
The two worked on the verses in early 2020 and debuted the song while on tour together.
