United

The hospital waiting room was filled to overflowing with Christians praying fervently. Online blogs were updating prayer warriors throughout St. Lawrence county and far beyond, including Pittsburgh, CA, and Albany. Faithful brethren were calling to agree with me in prayer for this new baby girl's life.

I cannot express the empowering of concerted prayer. Mountains take on new proportion. Fear is transformed to boldness. Daunting circumstances are revealed for what they truly are: opportunities for just such display.

Relegated to joining the battle from my family room chair due to some sort of sickness, I felt strengthened knowing that multitudes of requests were going before my Father's throne. A mighty army equipped for battle through His precious blood was refusing the enemy's plan for destruction.

And the world was watching. Nurses and doctors saw and wondered. Unity and love such as this is a marvelous testimony.

I stand in awe of the Body of Christ, His Bride. He has done wondrous things.

I felt that same strengthening, too, from my far-away home, when you said there were people filling the waiting room. I felt so blessed, unbelievably blessed, to know people who rise up on our behalf.

As I was up very late last night, I thought how awesome it was that there were people everywhere, praying for this sweet little baby and your family and extended family. I had also sent out prayer requests to other prayer groups, all around the world.
How amazing for Aubrey to be blanketed in such love. God's hand is truly in this.
I'm keeping you all in my prayers and am eager to help in any way. Love you all! God bless each of you!

This reminds me of many years ago when a young man of my own was in a life-threatening condition. The body of Christ supporting us, as well as our own calmness through faith, was a tremendous testimony to everyone around us. Doctors, nurses, and other families around us marveled at it all. Seeds were planted in many lives as a result.

God has protected little Aubrey thus far. He has a plan for her life, it is certain. Sometimes our faith is tested through such circumstances as this. I see a family standing firm!

Praise God for Aubrey! Everyday I look about 8 times a day for the latest update either on your site or Danicas (mainly Danica) or the prayer group and lay hands on the screen and pray-God's people united in prayer for His miracles - oh how wonderfully our Lord has been glorified this week - continuing to pray and intercede and thank God for His preparation for Aubrey as His healing power is at work and His hands lead all the people who tend Aubrey-prayerfully thanking God that Daniel and Brietta are with Aubrey loving her and she feeling that abundance of love from her family and extended CFC family-my prayers for all of you as we continue our prayer vigil and stand with you with Aubrey and praise reports-we know the severity of Aubrey's position, and we know what God's promises are. Love , bonnieb

Darlene,
Yes, we all were joined in prayer. I felt the power of it as well, even if I was not at the hospital.
God is so awesome!
