This special sponsorship blog was written by a long-time team member and sponsor, Bev, who recently had the opportunity to spend time with her sponsored child in Guatemala. Read about her experience below!
What is prayer? Spending time with the God we love, praising Him, adoring Him, confessing to Him, petitioning Him and listening to Him.
What a privilege we have as believers to come before the throne of God almighty. We can trust He will listen and that He will answer.
While in Guatemala this year, I had the opportunity to come before God in prayer with my sponsored child, Brenda, and also played outside in the courtyard.
Love speaks many languages.
When it came time for them to leave, God, in his perfect timing, sent Olivia walking by. I asked Olivia if she would interpret as I prayed with Brenda and special few minutes! The presence of the Holy Spirit was there as we prayed together.
As I was praying aloud in English and sweet time; something I will never forget.
“I love the Lord because He hears and listens. I will pray as long as I have breath!” Psalm 116:1-2
I would like to encourage everyone to pray for these children. If you have the opportunity to go to Guatemala and God does mighty work through the prayers of His people.
The power of prayer is not that I speak but that God listens and then answers in His good timing.
I have seen many children through the years come back for their food basket and compassionate God!
Pray, pray, and then pray some more!
