Prayers are Powerful!
Thank you for praying for my daughter! She was able to do more today then she has been able to do for a while. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.
Over the past 35 years, I have seen the Lord move powerfully through prayer. One time was when I was giving birth to my youngest daughter. The cord was double wrapped around her neck, and I hemorrhaged during delivery. The doctor and nurse were amazing during the whole thing! They were also astounded at the peace that filled the delivery room. The Lord’s presence was so heavy it felt like an invisible cloud. The doctor, who was not a believer, said, “Thank you for letting me deliver your baby! Even with the complications, this birth was the most peaceful birth I have experienced. This is how it should be. Thank you!”
The shot the doctor gave me stopped the bleeding, but I shivered for the next few hours because of the blood loss. I could feel God’s blanket of peace envelope me until the following morning.
When I returned home, my neighbor Cathy, and a couple of other friends who attended my Bible study, came over to see the new baby. Cathy told me that the day before, she had felt an urgency to pray for me and that she had called the other women to pray. One of them had felt the same urgency that Cathy had felt and was already praying when Cathy called her.
Come to find out, they were all praying for me at the exact time when I was delivering my daughter. What an awesome God we serve!
James 5:16 tells us that the prayers of a righteous man avails much. May you and I never underestimate the power of prayer!
May you be abundantly blessed!
