For the Grace is a collection of my personal prayers and praise-worship songs (songs I sing at home). These songs are born through a life sojourn through radical changes and extremes from homeless to blessed. I am a parable and these are my testimonies.
Written over a period of 40 years, For the Grace blends rock, jazz, gospel and Latin grooves into a robust texture of styles and tones uncommon in contemporary Christian music.
I once wrote professionally. Now I write for my prayer closet. I typically share only with family and close friends . . . and now, for the first time, with you.

My studio guru Brian Lash provided drums for Search Me, Song of Lazarus, I Will Surrender and Mercy Me. My brother Michael Hlordji is the man behind the amazing congas for Song of Lazarus and Search Me. The lovely and always gracious Patrica Lyon provided soulful cello for Search Me.
A special thanks to Darcy Morris for the endless hours of patience as a studio widow. Words are not enough to express, so I went to India and bought some trinkets.
