We welcome Nathaniel Ethan Watkins into the world this morning. He was born approximately 6:55 (I'll confirm the official time and such later) and was taken into surgery for the first procedure on his heart. I know we've been shaking heaven with our prayers already, but this morning it's time to shake it up some more. Just as we send our prayers up to the Lord I know He is watching. He isn't surprised by anything. He knows and He cares ... He is guiding the hands of the surgeons and all the attendants.
We knew what was happening all along the process and let's face it, things are easier to face until you meet them head on and now that NEW has started his journey outside of the womb we've still got to know that without a shadow of a doubt that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ever hope or ask for. I sent out the call when we first found out about the situation and I've found the E-Mail I'm modifying it a bit so that we can continue to be on one accord.
God does some great things when His people are on one accord (just ask those folks back in Acts 2) ...
Time for us to continue the full frontal assault on the enemy. We've been talking about putting some action to our words and we've been waiting to see miracles, signs and wonders and as Pastor brought the word a while ago it still hasn't changed. Are you still believing for the mountain to be moved? It's time for that mountain to move, it's time for us to lock arms and go to battle for one of our own.
Isaiah 53:5 says, "The chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole" (The Amplified Bible). The Hebrew word for peace in this scripture is shalom. It basically means "nothing missing, nothing broken," or wholeness in every area of your life—spirit, soul and body.
Right now it's time for us to pray for wholeness in every area in the life of Nathaniel Ethan Watkins. Bro. David and Sis. Missy need your prayers for strength ... the round of surgeries has begun and we pray for God's will along each step. The doctor's will be amazed (prepare to be amazed) at what the Lord is about to do in our midst ... there's a healing taking place y'all. Get ready, get ready because we know the Creator of the universe. We know the One who speaks things into existence. We know the One who can do all things but fail. We know the One that can change it all with one word. And it is in the Name of Jesus that Nathaniel Ethan will be made whole.

Bombard the heavens with your prayers ... so that the whole earth shakes with the response from our King.
