where a group of people declared victory...

Twenty people.  Hands clasped.  Boldly approached the Throne.  Unified in prayer.

What a powerful and beautiful and awesome thing.  Prayer.  Unity. 

Brothers and sisters in Christ came together for one cause.  Lifting up a family in need.  A family desperate for strength.  A family precious in His sight.  A family faithful to His call on their lives.  A family, whose testimony has touched many, seeking Him with their entire hearts.

Last night, we declared victory in Jesus.

We proclaimed His glorious name.

We petitioned for healing.

We banished the Enemy from attacking this family.

And we did it all in Jesus' name.

May the words we spoke not be a reflection of ourselves, but may our actions be a reflection of God at work around us.  May He be exalted and lifted up.  May He be glorified.  May those around the situation see His mighty works and praise His beautiful name.   May we remain faithful in our declaration that healing is evident.  And long after we drop our clasped hands, may they stay united in prayer and love. 

'so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.'
Isaiah 55:11

In the glorious and beautiful and mighty name of Jesus.  Amen.
