One sure fire way to get me out of the blogging closet, is to have the devil attack a child! Not to mention a blood-bought, spirit-filled, minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ's child!!
RedDaddy heard about baby Sophie Millard (MercyMe's lead singer's 5 month old baby girl) on the radio this morning. He immediately called me to pray...and I immediately did. We don't listen to the radio much and have been quite isolated from the news as well. She has been in the hospital for a few days now with RSV, a respiratory disorder. I regret only hearing about her illness today. But...
Here is our prayer (your agreement is appreciated!):
Father, I come boldly before Your throne of Grace to obtain mercy to help the Millard's in this time of need. They need Your peace, Your strength, and most of all Your faith. I pray that they would be strengthened with might in their inner man, Lord; that the outer influences would not be able to penetrate Your armour. I declare that little Sophie is a child of covenant and therefore covered by the blood of Jesus which was shed for her healing; spirit, soul, and body. I thank You Father that NO weapon formed against Sophie, or her parents, shall prosper, and EVERY tongue (including the doctors') that should rise up against them is condemned, in Jesus' Name! I say she shall LIVE and NOT die and shall declare the works of the Lord!
Father, I thank you for making the Millard's more than conquerors in You. I thank You that THE GREATER ONE lives and dwells in them and is at work in baby Sophie's body even now. I thank you that because every sickness and every disease is under the curse (Deut. 28), and because they are redeemed from that curse (Gal. 3:13) they can fully expect their precious baby girl to recover!
I add my faith to theirs and to the others praying for her today, that she IS healed by the stripes of Jesus, and she IS made whole by His blood. I praise YOU for the awesome testimony that this will be of YOUR goodness and love for Your people!!
In the mighty Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
Sunday went great!! Thanks for asking :)
