We just added “Let Em Pray” by NF to Project 88.7!
In “Let Em Pray,” NF talks about the success he’s had, and people who are praying for him not to succeed. Even though some people might not believe in him and what he does as an artist, NF believes he’s just scratching the surface of what God has in store for him and trusts God with His plan for his life.
King David was called by God to lead God’s people. David would often cry out to God in his prayers (which you can find in the Bible in the book of Psalms) about enemies who slandered and ridiculed him, betrayed him, and plotted against him and what God had called him to do. But like NF, David always trusted God to handle every obstacle he faced and every person who opposed him so that God could fulfill His purposes for David’s life. David didn’t try to vindicate himself or prove himself to others. He simply prayed to God, trusted Him, and stayed focused on what God had called him to do.
If you’re facing obstacles as you pursue God’s calling for your life or comments from people that are discouraging you, let this song remind you to trust God.
My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help. This I know: God is on my side! I praise God for what he has promised; yes, I praise the Lord for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? (Psalm 56:9-11 NLT)
Delegating isn’t one of my strong suits
I’ve seen it take a toll and be harmful
I’ve seen what it can do when I got both of my arms full
But still continue to pile more on my back though
I learned at a young age if you wanna do something impactful
Then you gotta be willin’ to sacrifice and really go after it
With everything that you have
‘Cause if you don’t, it ain’t never gon’ happen (Listen)
Gotta prevail, gotta excel
Think I hit my peak? No, I just started climbin’ the hill
Kill or be killed, well, if that’s the way that you feel
I hope you know you ’bout to get the raw end of thе deal
I need to meditate
“I ain’t got no room to grow,” I would nеver say (No)
Conversations with the Lord should be every day
Reconnectin’ with my core, get my head on straight
Praying on my downfall, let ’em pray
Check the résumé (Check the résumé)
Set the pace, I don’t hesitate (I don’t hesitate)
Yeah, just get it done, let me demonstrate (Demonstrate)
Demonstrate (Demonstrate), demonstrate (Demonstrate)
Let it soak in, let it resonate (Resonate)
Blood, sweat and tears on the 808s
See ’em prayin’ on my downfall (Let ’em pray)
