Alrighty We got a bit more focused on God

So today and yesterday are like night and day. Not only in how Asher is doing but also where our faith is.

Today Asher was looking WAY better. He is still not out of the woods by any means. But God is good and He will break in and save because that's just what God does. Asher was alert and awake when we went to go and see him tonight but we had to wear these gown things to make sure that we don't spread any possible infection that Asher may have. We have some new targets for you as they found a possible infection in his groin area where they have a central line IV that has been there for a little while now. You all are awesome at this whole prayer thing. Thank you so much.

Prayer Points:
Pray that God would kill the possible infection they found in his groin IV.
Pray that his airways would be opened.
Pray that he would take food well and that his digestion would work properly to get him some needed energy.
Pray that withdrawl from the pain meds would be minimal.
Pray for The Spirit of God to abide in the room with him.

God really showed me a thing or two today about praying from His Presence. I'm reading this book called "The Happy Intercessor" by Beni Johnson. It is AMAZING and a real now Word from the Lord for us. (Asher Amos means happy burden bearer or happy intercessor. You can see why it caught my eye). Right now it is talking about how we are to pray offensively instead of defensively. We are to pray from the place of victory looking down at our circumstances from the presence of God instead of praying from the place of lack and desperate need. It's just a really good and welcome perspective change.

Erika and I decided that we were going to pray in the Spirit the entire way to the hospital and that the atmosphere was not going to change us but that we were going to change the atmosphere by The Holy Spirit. It worked out really well. I ended up getting really happy every time I said "Holy Spirit". It was great. I couldn't explain it but I really liked it. So we went into the hospital at peace and charged up with the presence of God. It was a good visit. Here are some pictures of the whole thing today.

I was just speaking LIFE over this little man and he was looking at me and responding to our touch again. It was great. We still have a long way to go but this was a good day.

Here is Erika acting silly while I play with the camera. Notice the funny gown things. Very nice.

Okay so I would usually type way more onto this post but it's once again getting late. I look forward to hearing from you all via e-mail or comment. It's a huge blessing to hear from those of you who check the blog out and pray with us. Your all awesome and God really Loves do we!

He looks so great! I've prayed through your points of intercession already and will continue through the day. Thanks for the encouraging word on Asher, and from the Lord. What a special, intimate revelation!
