“Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.”
My family is a part of an amazing ministry in Texas, that hosts large summer camp programs. Even though I’m not “on staff”, in this season to be all in at home, we are very much involved, all four of us. It’s very important to Ryan and I that we serve as a family. Whatever dad does, we do. Whatever is on sister’s heart, we support. However mom wants to create, we carve space for that. And if brother is worshipping, we are amening.
As the property has been busy at work, preparing for a summer full of campers, the kids and I have asked the Lord how we can help. Most of the preparation is physical labor too strenuous for my littles. We all decided we could fill the main sanctuary with prayer and praise. Miracles happen all over camp, but this building holds so many specific holy moments as the Word of God is taught and His presence experienced.
I will admit, it’s been a bit more playful than prophetic. Most of our “prayer time” has been chasing and trying to redirect focus. But on this day Oliver really wanted to get on stage and praise. He started singing “Holy! Holy!” I could tell it really was a pure moment under his wiggles.
I caught Oliver on video singing this spontaneous song from his heart and I was stunned. What an anthem for his generation.
I tucked this into my heart for a personal moment. I’ve very big about protecting sweet Jesus moments. But I felt so prompted to share this little clip with you all. I asked Oliver if I could share and he approved. Oliver is anointed to share the love and light of Christ; in Word and worship. So perhaps you need a three year old singing over you “God, even if I’m scared and alone, You are with me”.
Dear friend, be of good cheer. We are not alone. We do not have to walk in worry. We have an almighty God on our side. He is every faithful and ever present. Whatever you are walking through, be encouraged that The Body (of all ages) is strong.
Wondrous Are His Works,
