All We Are Is Yours

So, last night over 200 people came together to bombard the Heavens with us and Shaina and I are humbled.

I will post video later today. But I feel like there was a thick air of expectancy as we pleaded with God for Chaia's life.

One of the highlights was watching as everyone came forward at the end of the gathering and lit a candle off the Christ candle.

By the end of that time, we had this:

Shaina and I came back to the hospital (sorry we did not stick around to fellowship with all of you who came!) around 10 and Chaia gave us two hours of bright blue eyed smiles. We hadn't seen any smiles for a few days so, our hearts are full.

For those of you kneeling all over the country and all over the globe, we love you and ask that you do not stop until the LORD makes clear His answer.

It will never be said of us in this that we 'have not because we asked not.'

The service was amazing. God is amazing and He was with us there.

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:20

I am constantly thinking and praying for Chaia, mom and dad. I had open heart surgery April 2010. I just feel a heart connection. I've seen God's great works and I know what He can do.

14And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

My son was born premature in 1983 and hopitalized for 3 months. I remember the stress and strain, the highs and the lows, sad times and hurt. God was there all the time (and I was not professing Him as my savior then) but He heard my cry.
Twenty-eight years later, my son and 11 years walking with the LORD for me. He's able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us.

He is a wonder and He's still working miracles. Mighty to save and mighty to heal.

Be encouraged and know that we are also compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses...Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith!

In Jesus name! Amen!

Amazing!! I am so happy you had an awesome turn out. We wanted to be there but we were praying with you in Washington, DC. You are all in our prayers daily. Love that you were blessed with beautiful smiles when you returned to the hospital!

The service was truly AMAZING!! I'm so happy to hear of Chaia's big smiles afterwards:) I pray she continues to get better and better each day so that one day she can stand next to her mommy and daddy in church in front of everybody and sing her lil' heart out just as beautifully as her mother did in this service!! :)

Praying for a miracle always,
