No matter who we are or what we did, the Lord will always listen to us when we call on His name. Therefore, do not be afraid to call upon the Lord, He will look down on us and listen to our prayers. God is not like us, he never judges us for the things we did. All He wants is to trust and rely on Him always.

The Song’s Content
“Kneeling Drunkard’s Plea” is a song of a man watching a drunk man pray to God and asking Him for mercy. He watches the man pray without any judgment. It’s nice that the man watching didn’t judge the drunk man because we don’t have the right to judge anyone. Look at God, He doesn’t judge us for the things we do or did. When you pray to Him He will listen and help you or give you the things that you need. God will always show mercy to the people who ask for it. Therefore, do not hesitate to pray to God, ask and He will give it to you. But, when you ask you have to believe that God will really give it to you.
The Cover of the Album
The cover of the album, Satan is Real, was taken on a rock quarry. The Louvin brothers are really standing in front of a twelve foot imagine of a Devil. They even set some tires on fire for the background.
