My dear brothers and sisters, of FaithLine: “The LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.” (Psa. 118:23)
When Randy Howard was the General Overseer he assigned a prayer team, which I was very privileged, along with sister Elva Howard and others, to be a part of. We would meet once a month until it got close to Assembly time, then we would meet weekly. During one of these intense prayer times at Elva’s home, one very dear brother fell out on the floor lost all his bodily functions and as I was about to say to myself “oh no my brother has…” I was interrupted by a very authoritative and loud “DEVIL I REBUKE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS.” It was sister Elva and it instilled in all of us a confidence that what we asked the Lord to do He would do! So, we all began praying and God raised our brother up. We were all so thankful to be taught the power of prayer by this awesome woman of God.
Elva Howard definitely was, “…in all respects a MODEL OF GOOD WORKS, and in HER teaching showed integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned…” (Titus 2:7-8)
FaithLine, the bible says: “…let our people learn to devote themselves to good works…”
