A 9 year old child with no running water and dirt floors had something important to declare over my life.
I thought I was the one doing the nurturing in this relationship? I thought I was the one with the spiritual maturity. Ha!
Here’s what this child told me:
“I thank God for giving life and I thank you for all the blessings you have given me. Today I prayed declaring victory for you and declaring positive things and protection for you. I declare that you always will have bread in your house and that you will have health. I declare work, peace, love and prosperity for you, that angels with swords of fires will protect you. I pray the Lord richly bless you and always remember that the Lord Jesus died on the cross because he loves us.”
There is a special bond between a child and their sponsor. I feel exceptionally privileged for mine. It makes me sob.
James 5:16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.
