Tonight what started out to be a small group of friends over to pray for Elena and for what lies ahead, quickly turned into a large gathering of God's soldiers ready to march along with us as we start to fight the battle that looms before us.
We were reminded of the story of David and Goliath. How David did not have the protection of all of the armor that traditional soldiers wore when going into battle. All he had was his stone, his sling, and the full armor of God. We know that this proved to be all David needed to defeat the giant. Everyone here was invited to take a rock as a reminder of this victory and to use to pray for Elena's victory over her leukemia. We know that we are surrounded by the full armor of God because of the love we felt from His servants who came out to let us know just that.
We can't possibly begin to say thanks to the over 100 people who gathered in our front yard and out into the street. They came to pray with us, sing to us and worship our Lord and Savior! We may not know what tomorrow will bring, but we do know that we do not have to face it alone. Thank you for sharing God's amazing love with us tonight in a mighty way! We also know that countless others who couldn't physically be with us were praying tonight. Thank you for being a part of this army!
We are going to bed tonight with grateful hearts and with the strength that comes through your prayers from God alone.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
