Lora releases Sovereign God to redirect our focus back to God.

Presently, we are faced with a pandemic-covid19 globally. Lots of people are getting infected daily, deaths are being recorded and their is no medicine to stop it’s further spread for now. We had to adjust to a lot of changes like social distancing, worship centers closed down, wearing of Nose mask, sanitizing our hands and surfaces etc This was not how we lived a couple of months back. I saw fear breeding and spreading. IN the midst of all these we received and recorded “Sovereign God”. This song redirects your heart back to God as the Uncreated Creator, He has no beginning nor end, he is Sovereign indeed, his supremacy over covid19 and fear, is re-established as he has the final say over our lives and not covid19.
