Natalie Grant sings on this worshipful prayer song about turning to Christ in times of desperate need. Grant told NewReleaseToday
the story behind the track.
"'More Than Anything' was written by Sam and Becca Mizell, who I wrote 'King of the World' with. When they brought me the song, I remember how I was particularly moved by it because it was an answer to how we can treat God like Santa Claus sometimes. We hope we are on the "nice list." When we find ourselves in the middle of tragedy or something unknown, all of a sudden our prayer life improves. We come to God when we need something from Him. There was something about this song that convicted me at the time of recording it. I wasn't going through anything major at the time; it was just an overall conviction in my life.
They told me the story of where the song came from. One of Becca's dearest friends was dying from breast cancer, and this was her prayer. She had prayed for God's healing, but she wanted Jesus more than anything that He could do for her. She wanted Him. That was her perspective. I recorded the vocals and felt like this song would minister to people who received a scary medical diagnosis. Bernie and I prayed that over this song, for people to know that they need God more than anything."
