Tonight we had a very special Prayer Service. Every Tuesday night we have a prayer service, and on Friday nights we have our regular service. We tend to get more people to come to the service on Friday nights. Up to this point we have had on average 9 or 10 people coming on Tuesday nights.
Today we were visiting and discipling Nely. Nely has opened her doors to us to hold services on Tuesdays and Fridays. As we were leaving her house to make some more visits before the prayer service at night, my partner Dalila asked Nely a simple question: "Hermana Nely how many people do you want to come fill your house for the service tonight?"
Nely sat and thought for a moment and then responded "15 people".
So Dalila told her ok, start praying right now that tonight we will have 15 people in your house to pray, and we will be praying for this as well.
The 3 of us prayed the rest of the afternoon that 15 of our contacts would come to service tonight. A number that is pretty high for a Tuesday. But we prayed with faith, believing that God would fill his House of Prayer if we only asked Him.
And you know what happened? 26 people show up to pray tonight. WOW! We never imagined that we were praying for too SMALL of a number. God is so good. We were able to tell the story to our contacts of how we had prayed for 15 this afternoon and look how God answered our prayers! We had an amazing time of prayer together. There are so many needs in our group and it is so encouraging to see those in need turning to God for help. Knowing and believing that he is the ultimate Provider, the ultimate Healer, and so much more. Our group is really beginning to come together as a family. It is so amazing to see the spiritual growth that is happening in the lives of those in the Church in Belen.
