Laura Hackett Park, worship leader at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, releases her brand new single "Wounded Healer." In this new song she draws near to the resurrected Lord Jesus to "see" the eternal scars from his cross and to meditate on His deep love that brings peace and healing.
Laura reveals, "My desire is to be so close in worship that I can trace the scars of His love for me and to always remember how the depth of His sacrifice displays my great value to Him."
Growing up in the house of prayer, Laura was surrounded by music. Songwriting came naturally for her, and she wrote her first song at the age of eight. She later attended the Conservatory of Music and Dance at the University of Missouri-Kansas City to develop her songwriting skills and graduated with a degree in music theory. Laura now teaches voice classes at the Forerunner Music Academy, which is part of International House of Prayer University, and continues to lead worship at IHOPKC's 24-hour prayer room each week, which is streamed LIVE to over 175,000 people a month.
Her motivation for music and songwriting comes from a desire to draw people back to God. Laura's songs and vocals have been featured on many different albums in the IHOPKC community. Her first full-length solo album released in the fall of 2009, followed by her single "I Put On Christ (The Battle Is Raging)," which gained recognition through the International House of Prayer's Onething young adult conferences.
