This CD was conceived in an organizational effort of Mercy Gate Church to pray for those with cancer at our local Relay for Life event. As we prayed and discussed ways to best minister to those who are sick, and idea was given to print out and give away scriptures touching on God’s healing. We then decided to record the children from Carmi Christian School reading these scriptures with comforting, healing music in the background. This all seemed very divinely inspired. So we launched out with prayerful hearts to put together a project that would facilitate divine encounter, bringing both healing and comfort to those suffering with illnesses. Our prayer is that as you listen to this CD you would encounter the living Christ in both His compassionate heart and power to heal. May the Word of the Lord run swiftly in your presence and be glorified as you listen (2 Thess. 3:1), and may your childlike faith be fostered as God’s Word is heard through the mouths of Children (Rom. 10:17; Matt. 19:14).
