THIS is what fasting and prayer will do!

I can't wait to write about yesterday's miracle!!!  Hold on to your seat...

Our church has been in 40 days of fasting and increased prayer. The fast ended last night after our 11 PM - 1 AM prayer meeting - we all went to IHOP to break the fast together. (I couldn't wait to have a chocolate chocolate chip pancake and my husband had ice cream.)

 So here's just one miracle testimony from this fast.  Yesterday morning a young boy in our church went into the hospital to have a large cyst  removed. Before operating the doctor checked him one more time. After examining him the doctor said, "THERE WILL BE NO OPERATION TODAY! THE CYST IS COMPLETELY GONE!!!" They sent him right back home!  This was his mother's facebook status yesterday:
 "Thank you, thank you, Jesus!!! He is always coming through for me and you! Right before my son was going to be operated on, the doctor came in to check him and told us he doesn't need surgery because what they had found on him was completely gone there was not even a sign of where the cyst had been! The ladies at the front desk were shouting with me, 'praise God!'"
 I can't wait to see what God is going to do next. We had more people than ever last night at prayer. We filled up the IHOP afterwards with the amount of people that were there. This is a brand new IHOP right around the corner from our church. My husband and I have been going there quite a bit and reaching out to the staff members. Last night they remarked about how great our church people are to serve. (So polite and loving, not to mention they tip well.) Before we left the restaurant one of the servers had already asked for our service times and said he wants to bring his girlfriend and start coming to Celebration.


I feel like it's the night before Christmas. Evangelist Martha Tennison is with us tomorrow morning. If you have never heard her preaching, you're missing out. Here are two messages you can check out.


This is just the beginning of our new season and what God will do. 


We pray for people all over the world every week. People can always count on our church to press in for their needs. If you ever want to be added to the prayer list just comment on my blog, or on facebook or you can e-mail prayer@celebrationchurchtampa.com
