The power of prayer...

James 5:16 declares, "…The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective..."

Corinthians 10:4-5 tells us, "The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds..."

"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints" Ephesians 6:18

1 John 5:14-15 says, "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him."



Please click on the Praying for Harper button and read about sweet Harper's progress...God is hearing our prayers...
We are still waiting for an update from Jenna on Brayden...

What the enemy means for evil, God means for good. God is not surprised by any of this. He knew -before the beginning of time- that these babies would need faithful people lifting them up their first days. And He has provided any army. An army who knows we serve a miraculous God.

I love how Kelly's dad posted on his blog that Harper is doing better "on her own" (quotation marks his), we believe this is due to the power of prayer to the Almighty.

Our Lord, thank you for providing power in prayer. We will remain vigilant and await your handiwork...

I, too, loved how the proud new grandpa used quotation marks to recognize God's handiwork in what the doctor's are claiming Harper is doing on her own. No doubt that sweet little precious girl has her mom's fighting spirit and energy, but that God's army is fighting right along with her.

Blogging brings us together in prayer. Sweet.
