PRAY AND GET READY is about a gospel musician who is unsure of himself as a musician, but steadfast and unwavering in his faith in the Book of Revelation and Bible prophecy. The film follows musician Isaiah Owens from his apartment complex in Montgomery, Alabama to a series of performances in New York City. During the course of his travels, Owens experiences a “dark night of the soul” of sorts. The prognostication by Owens that the world is doomed finds subtle irony as two wars and the contentious 2004 US Presidential election play eerily in the background. Director Tyler Bell captures in intimate detail a man who, through his music and travels, rediscovers a faith in himself.
In the words of Mr. Owens, “Pray and get ready…cause time ain’t long.”
