prayer is power: our story

Last week I told you I was going to make Prayer is Power a weekly post. I've been praying for God to show me how I can use this for Him. I want you to see the miracle of prayer, so each week there is going to be a featured blogger who shares how the power of prayer has affected his/her life.

If you would like to be featured, or know someone with a powerful story, please let me know.

Prayer is Power


The following is a post I wrote last year after getting Otter's normal EEG results.

Dear God~

I just heard the results. EEG NORMAL - FULL REMISSION. I am in awe of You. As tears of joy stream down my face, I fall to my knees and praise You for Your miracles. How can anyone not believe in You?

Do I know why You put this upon us in the first place? No I don't. Someday I plan on asking You face to face. What I do know... I am closer to You. I am closer to my son. I am closer to my husband. I am closer to my daughter. I've met people I never would have met. Is that why You did it? To save me? To save my marriage? It worked. You are the Ultimate Miracle Worker.

10 months ago, Otter was having seizures every day, sometimes up to 50. He was suffering. I was suffering. The EEG showed next to the worst there is. Seizure activity in his brain even when he wasn't having seizures. Our little boy was quickly slipping away from me, but I didn't lose faith. I knew You would bring us through...and You did.

I don't know what to say. I want to proclaim Your Miracle Work from the top of the world. You are The One. You are The Only. Thank You Lord. Thank You thank You thank You thank You. You saved him. You saved me. You saved our family. We will praise You forever and ever. You are always first in our lives. Thank you for letting us see who our little boy can be. We love You. Forever.
AMEN!

God bless your week!

I love this!
Prayer is indeed a very powerful thing...even non-believers have been caught praying in rough times.
