Her heartbeat climbed to 197 over a 7 hour span as she and her husband were on a mission to rescue three young women from sex trafficking. Danger is an understatement when it comes to this line of work. She reached out to her closest family and friends for prayer. They needed help. They knew they could not fight this battle alone. The prayers began and the circle widened. Those praying reached out to their close circle of friends to pray. This is how I came to pray for these brothers and sisters in the faith. Our circle sent the prayers back and forth to each other throughout the morning. We knew who was trying to stop them from succeeding. We claimed VICTORY over them and we BELIEVED God would be MIGHTY to SAVE! We were all standing in the battlefield with them. Later that evening we received word that our God was VICTORIOUS! Not only had he calmed the physical beating heart like He calms the raging seas, but God had doubled his fruit! There were 5 young women between the ages of 18 and 19 years old that were RESCUED and SAVED! PRAISE GOD!
This story is a beautiful one of the mighty power of prayer! It reminds me of Peter’s miraculous escape from prison in Acts 12. He was bound with two chains, sleeping between 2 soldiers being guarded by 16 sentries standing guard at the entrance. There was NO WAY OUT! But the church was earnestly praying to God for His escape. An angel appeared and awoke Peter from his sleep telling him to get up as the chains fell off. The angel continued to give Peter instruction and Peter followed him all the way out of the prison. Peter thought he was experiencing a vision until he came to himself realizing that God had sent an angel to free him. He went immediately to Mary’s House where many were gathered in prayer for him. They couldn’t believe their eyes when he was standing before them. Their prayers had been answered.
Sweetest Friends, our God hears our prayers. He loves to answer us when we pray, and He is always MIGHTY to SAVE! Do you believe? I do. Just this week I have seen a local pastor be rescued and saved…He is ALIVE and only through the work of our Mighty God. There were many in the church praying. I have seen not 3 but 5 young ladies be rescued from the chains of sex trafficking. There were many in the church praying. They will no longer be bound by those chains. They are FREE! I have seen a teenage heart soften after weeks of having a hardened heart. There were many in the church praying. Our Lord and Savior that raised Lazarus from the dead is still ALIVE today, working in miraculous ways that we cannot see or understand. Angels are in our midst doing the work they have been sent to do. Churches are praying and gathering together. God is hearing and is answering. Be a Prayer Warrior! Stand in the gap for those in the battlefield. BELIEVE God is listening and is actively answering when you pray. “Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:36
Then when you SEE Him answer in MIGHTY WAYS…SING, DANCE and SHOUT IT TO THE ROOFTOPS! Our God is on the MOVE!!! He is MIGHTY to SAVE!!!
