“Faithful” by Chris Tomlin

Prayer Category


“Faithful” is one of the words to describe Jesus in Revelation 19:11. It’s also the title to a track from Chris Tomlin’s CD “And If Our God Is For Us…” (2010 sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records).

Faithful…not normally a word we use to describe God. More of a word attributed to a friend or even the dog.

In Revelation the word “faithful” is not so much a word used to describe Jesus; the word has better understanding if used as a title. John, the author of Revelation, says that Jesus is called “Faithful and True”. Think on those words and let them sink in. Faithful AND True.

Think of this concept in this way: Jesus is the definition of “faithful” and “true”.

Meditate on the fact that the one who defines “Faithful” and “True” cares for you. Nathan Nockels, Ed Cash and Christy Nockels put their meditation this way:

“Faithful, forever You are faithful,

Father to the fatherless.

You uphold the one who feels forsaken.

You are faithful God.

“Faithful, forever You are faithful,

Lover of the wounded heart,

You defend the poor and the forgotten,

You are faithful, God.

I will sing to the Maker of heaven and earth, God you reign forever and Your love will endure.

Faithful and True, is the name of the Lord.

You are faithful God.

Faithful, forever You are faithful, Shelter for the fragile soul

You lift us up, You hold us all together.

You are faithful God.

You are there in every season of my soul

You are there, you’re the anchor that will hold

You are there, in the valley of the shadows.

You are faithful, God.”

Do any of these scenarios describe you? Fatherless…fragile soul? Are you in the valley of the shadows? In any situation lift your hands to the maker of heaven and earth. He is the very definition of “Faithful and True”. He will hear you.


He loves you.
