(I wrote this while still in the hospital. I’m just now getting to publish it.)
The night after seeing our blessed news of “No Richters,” I laid in bed and thought about all the folks who had been praying for me and then imagined what that must have looked and sounded like in heaven.
I could hear a choir of voices rising together, some in unison, some in harmony, echoing through the Throne Room of God. A choir of voices that could not be missed or dismissed. Beautiful yet determined; hopeful yet believing, confident yet respectful. This song of prayer being sung from the hearts of my loved ones, near and far. Your song touched the Heart of God and saved my life! Do you truly understand the power of corporate prayer?
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
1 John 5:14
“Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”
“And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick,
and the Lord will raise him up.”
“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask,
it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
“In my distress I called to the Lord;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears.”
“And I will do whatever you ask in my name,
so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
Thank you for praying me back.
