The album's title derives from "Make My Life a Prayer to You", which begins: "Make my life a prayer to You / I wanna do what You want me to / No empty words and no white lies / no token prayers, no compromise." (The title was used for the official Keith Green biography written by his wife Melody Green, which was included in Rich Text Format (RTF) and Portable Document Format (PDF) formats on The Ministry Years, Volume Two (1980-1982) (CD release), which has the Enhanced CD label.)
The song 'How Can They Live Without Jesus?' was covered by the band Glad for the 1993 Keith Green tribute album No Compromise: Remembering the Music of Keith Green. The song 'Make My Life A Prayer To You' was covered by Matt Redman & Paul Oakley in 2002 for another tribute album, Your Love Broke Through: The Worship Songs Of Keith Green.
