His Name is Ezra


A mother brought her newborn son for prayer.

I prayed for him before when he was still in the womb.

When his mother came to me the first time her belly was so small I hadn't noticed she was pregnant. She was 8 months along.

I could see the cause for concern. It seemed as if he wasn't growing. Doctors had declared negative diagnoses over his life and went into great detail about his projected health problems and why she should abort him.

I said, "NO!" No to all of it, the diagnoses, the projected health problems, abortion, and all the number of factors affecting this boy.

We prayed for him and believed he would be born healthy. We left it at that. We waited.

There were several things going on in the life of this mama. There were many negative contributing factors to consider. Yet we stood our ground in our faith that God heals today.

A few months went by. I put the prayer time out of my mind. I work with many people so it's not unusual that I didn't hear from her for a while.

Then she brought Ezra. He was beautiful and perfect. He was born at 8ish pounds a few months earlier. None of the doctor's diagnoses were correct. He was a healthy baby.

However, that day, he had been experiencing breathing problems and they weren't sure why. Mama stopped by for prayer on the way to the doctor's office.

My husband and I were sitting on the couch in the prayer room at my office, just hanging out and enjoying music.

The tangible presence of God was strong in the house of prayer that day.

Mama came in looking frantic. I hadn't seen her since our first prayer time. I naturally reached out for him and asked her how he was doing, etc.

She began to explain the situation about his fever and his wheezing. My husband and I were already kissing him and holding him.

As we sat on the couch loving this baby, he began to breathe normally, no wheezing and his body instantly cooled to his normal temperature.

A loving God supernaturally touched this tiny boy named Ezra through kisses and affection.

Amazed, his mama took him back into her arms and left take him to his appointment just to make sure he would remain fine.

Ezra is now a healthy growing child. We see him and the whole family regularly.

God has so much more in store for that little boy. I am privileged to be able to watch it happen.
