Power of a Praying Child

21 days of prayer & fasting culminated last night in a powerful prayer & celebration service. The most spectacular thing happened. Pastor called forward the children participating in the fast. Gracie was diligent in her fasting efforts; giving up sweets and videos/tv. The children lined the front, facing the congregation. Then a call was for people who didn't necessarily hear a specific word from God during the fast or still yet, wanted to hear something more. The children prayed for these individuals. It was so powerful..there was an incredible break in the spiritual realm. More & more adults responded, coming forward so the children could pray for them. Then the children were arranged in two rows - a prayer line was made & the entire congregation walked through that burgeoning army of prayer warriors. Then entire congregation - singers, musicians, nursery workers, pastors....they prayed for each on of us, laying hands on us as we worshiped & wept our way through the prayer line. Words just can't describe it~
