Power of Prayer

Casa Compasiva is proud to announce the first birth! 

 It happened this week after a long and hard, but triumphant labour.  Our birthing mama did a magnificent job, but when her energy finally gave out, we were all privileged to witness the amazing power of prayer.  

As mama and birth team all cried out to God, He answered and gave her strength to finish the job-- and finish well!  

The doctor on our team who witnessed the event commented later that from a medical perspective there is no explanation for how things turned out.  She said that it was a marvel and could only attribute it to the power of prayer.  

We of course know that it is not just the power of prayer, but the amazing power of our loving and faithful God.  Thank You, Father!  And thanks also to our prayer partners who are lifting this ministry to the throne.   

Mama and baby are happily settled at home and doing well.
