Victory in Prayer


Sunday morning we had a special prayer service at the home of one of our people followed by a lunch and a planning meeting. 

 We had more people than normal,
(I am not sure if that was because of the  meal or because of the meeting:)  
Anyway, it was really incredible to hear people pray and pray and pray. 
People who don't ever pray out loud. 
One after another people praised God for the evidences of grace they saw in the lives of their brothers and sisters. 
They battled to only give thanks.

Then we prayed again, this time for more evidences of grace.  More faith, more love... 
One prayer after another lifted humbly to our Lord. 

James and I both had tears in our eyes as we saw God working in hearts through prayer.
We had a wonderful time of fellowship at lunch and then got started with our meeting.  We are so thankful for the sovereignty of God over all that was said and done yesterday.  We also are comforted that all our steps in 2013 are ordered by the Lord and we look forward to seeing God's hands work in and through our lives.
