Last night the prayer team went 'mobile' again. We prayed for Gloria. Oh we surrounded her like a bunch of warriors over a wounded soldier.
We were told by the nurse that we could stimulate her as much as possible, so we took full advantage.
We laid hands on her, we anointed her with oil, we prayed for her. We told her how much we loved her, and how many people were holding her and her family up in prayer, and told her that her hubby and boys were doing good.
We know she is in God's care. He loves her so much and she loves Him. We could feel amazing peace in the room and right from Gloria herself. There is peace that only comes from the Holy Spirit, and it was very present and very real.
Then we headed about 6 door down and prayed for Willie.
We prayed and anointed Willie with oil. We visited and all acted like we had been friends for a lifetime. Willie is moving to Eugene today to a rehab center there. So we said our good byes. As we were wrapping up, one of the prayer warriors, Pam, asked Willie if he had a Bible....he said no. Pam sent her hubby after her Bible that happened to be in the car. Pam gave Willie her Bible.
Her personal marked up, highlighted, studied, treasured Bible. On the spot, just handed it over with joy and love. It was such a beautiful act of love I can't even describe the way it made me feel. Willie accepted it with joy and thanksgiving. We all signed it and we read Willie a couple of verses that we thought were encouraging.
I read to him the verse I had been praying over him out of his new Bible, and it was The Message translation, which was so beautiful and fitting.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
The Message (MSG)
16-18So we're not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever.
God is good!
