CBM’s inspiration for health programs comes from the gospels where Jesus proclaimed the kingdom and healed the sick. We believe that health is not simply the absence of disease, but refers to something greater. This week we are praying over the health of those in our communities, as April 7 is World Health Day. Please pray for those in your community who are battling illness, sickness, or are enduring suffering. As well, please remember the stigmatized, excluded and oppressed around the world, and pray that we may be able to recognize and support the needs around us through Christ’s name.
