Is prayer really that important in a band? Shouldn’t musicians focus more on practicing? While Luke is stuck in traffic in the Swiss alps, Ben, Chad, and David talk about having the perspective that prayer changes everything, and David shares the first of many random stories.

Steiger's story begins in 1983 in Amsterdam at the height of the European punk rock movement. There David and Jodi Pierce started a Bible study on a barge (called Steiger 14) behind the Central Train Station reaching the punks and the anarchists.
My band No Longer Music recently played at a Christian festival. After we had finished our show, we decided to check out the festival headliner. The arena was full when they played and their charismatic singer connected well with the audience.

Whether it’s caused by the loss of our passion and focus over time; running on principle rather than intimacy with God; or simply not realizing the spiritual battle we are in, we can find ourselves giving up on our calling. In this final episode of “Why Am I Silent?”, we talk about why we often decide to give up, and how we can find the strength to persevere.
