Who do you turn to when you need prayer? The book of Acts tells us about the life of the early church, how they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to fellowship and to prayer. Daily, followers of Jesus witnessed salvations, miracles of healing, deliverances, and angelic releases from prison.
Whenever I visit Royal Seed Home in Ghana, I am struck by how similar the daily life of the children is to the early Christian church. Naomi, Mother of the home, has created a culture where praise and prayer is at the very heart of the orphanage. Children begin their day in prayer. They gather in the courtyard before the school bell rings to sing and to pray. They have an “upper room” where a chaplain leads an afternoon prayer session. And, just before dinner, the kids come together in the courtyard to praise and pray. It’s beautiful. And, it’s powerful. Imagine how the prayers of these children move God and change outcomes!
One of our Worship in Action team leaders, Kathy Law, recently visited Ghana. She, too, observed the children’s powerful prayers of intercession. I’ve asked her to share with you below about her experience in Ghana, and how the prayers of the children of RSH have impacted her life.
God Bless You,
It is an honor to work with Don and Worship In Action. Don genuinely cares for people, and this is especially evident by his commitment to WIA. One of my duties as a WIA staff member is to visit Royal Seed Home in Ghana. I enjoy arriving early in the morning to serve breakfast, teach in the school, and observe in awe how this very large family of 200+ children goes peacefully about the day. The best part of all is joining the children during their prayer sessions. If you ever need a miracle, these children are ones you want praying for you.
My husband, Scot, was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer. While in surgery, I contacted Naomi of RSH and asked her to have the children pray. I found great comfort knowing a beautiful group of children in Ghana were interceding for my husband. We had many specific prayer requests, and the Lord answered every single one.
One of our goals for 2017 is to give our partners an opportunity to visit Ghana and to serve at Royal Seed Home. If this is something that interests you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A trip to Ghana would certainly be a life-changing experience.
