And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up;
This was one of the scriptures read today at the home of Wayne and Marge Root where twelve of us gathered to take communion and pray...the prayer of faith...for Wayne. It was mentioned by one of the ladies that as there were twelve of us together there were also twelve disciples. The reading of the scriptures was so...so...powerful. It seems...at least for me...when someone you know and love is sick the words of the scriptures seem to come to life even more than normal...they become real! You hear them, but even more than that, you feel them.
We started with a prayer and then we went around the room and read scriptures on healing. After that the bread and cups were passed and we all shared in taking communion together. It was a powerful time as we thanked the Lord for all that He has done...and all that He is going to do. Then we all gathered around Wayne and prayed. Everyone reaching out to God in faith...believing. As we were finishing Wayne started singing Power In The Blood!...how awesome is that...and we all joined in. I know I keep saying this but...it was such a powerful time. The Holy Spirit was definitely in the house with us!
I can't really even begin to convey to you how awesome this time together today was! When you gather with other believers to pray and worship the Lord, mighty things happen...that is what we are all praying and believing for...a mighty move from God! As Marge and Wayne both say...GOD is in control! God has Wayne in His hands and that's the best place for any of us to be. I like
Isaiah 49:16a Amp
Behold, I have indelibly imprinted (tattooed a picture of) you on the palm of each of My hands;
Hebrews 11:1 KJV
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
