Powerful Words

I received the e-mail with the time, the place and the urgent need for prayer. A beautiful baby boy born over the weekend is in serious need for healing and his parents need strength, wisdom and peace. Since I could not get to the location in time, the girls and I grabbed our Bibles and began to read.

Emma started in Psalm 131, we prayed that God would quiet and still their hearts.

Chloe went to Psalm 139 and read and then she prayed that those Doctors would know just what to do and that the parents would have the strength to take the next step. She also thanked God for R.'s life and how it was already bringing glory to God.

Seriously, these girls absolutely poured their hearts out for this family they do not know, I am humbled that they are mine. Thank you God.

After a few minutes they went upstairs and I grabbed my scripture index cards. These index cards are precious to me...all verses that I'm memorizing this year, along with 1300 other siesta's. Let me testify that the Word....once it is in your heart, it just comes out. That is what happened tonight. I found myself praying these verses:

"Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders." Deut. 33:12

"Behold the Lord's hand is not shortened that it can not save, or His ear dull that it can not hear." Isaiah 59:1

"What is impossible for man is POSSIBLE with God!"

My verse for the first two weeks of April is Jer. 32:27

"Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?"

No God. Nothing is too hard for you.

I ask you to pray for Baby R. tonight. NOTHING is too hard for our God. We have seen Him heal sweet Harper and so many other babies here in blogland...I ask you to pray for this sweet little one tonight.

The longer I have meditated and prayed these verses over this family...the more I sense Him. Seriously cold chills. There is power in the Word. Lifechanging, healing power. Would you pray that this family experiences it like never before?

Thanks.

I'll be praying Stephanie. I too had a baby dying in the hospital and was told to have the family come say goodbye. I called everyone I knew and every Church and asked them to pray. Within 2 days she was healed. I'll let others know to pray too.

I am praying and will continue to pray for this family. I came over visiting from a friends blog and am so glad I did. Praise God for your girls!

Nothing is impossible for God.
