the mercys day cd - 8

This is an overview of the Redemptive Gifts of Individuals, CD 8. This is the Mercys Day.

Mercy, I bless you and honor you for your special place as the most complex and most sensitive of the gifts. You are the crown jewel of God's creation. I bless the totally different language that you speak, the language of the heart that is sometimes too deep for logic or for words. You are called to be large spirited. I bless you with authority and dominion in the community of spirit. I bless you in the name of the 7-fold Spirit of the true and living God, Amen.
