“Launch Out into the Deep”

My youngest grandson was born in October 2007, but when my daughter was pregnant with him, the doctor warned that he would likely be born with severe physical and mental defects. The doctor suggested terminating the pregnancy to spare the child from a lifetime of suffering. While waiting for the test results of my daughter’s amniocentesis, I prayed that regardless of any defects he was born with, that he would know how much he was loved.

God answered our prayers. The test results came back ‘normal’ and he has been a tremendous blessing to our family. It’s during times of uncertainty that your prayer urgency shifts from ‘shallow’ prayers to getting on your face before the Lord and crying out from the deep pits of your soul—to get God’s attention. We’re living in the of chaos: terrorist threats, economic uncertainty and a pulling away from the principles of the Bible. We can’t buckle and became faint-hearted. We have to get on our face before God and intercede for one another.

Take action now: Meditate on Psalms 37:25 I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. (New Revised Standard Version)

Embrace this truth: Victory is yours!
