Welcome to my blog! This is mainly the story of my son, Brayton Cade Moak. His life is a testimony to me, and many others. I hope this blog encourages those of you who are going through difficult times, who have sick kids, who are lacking faith, and who need a reason to believe in miracles. I never thought that I would see a miracle, much less give birth to one. My son, my precious angel, is my miracle. His story, as well as his father's and my story, will hopefully fill your spirit with love! God is good!

Power in Numbers...

As I was lying here awake, I looked over my Facebook. Amazing, technology is!  I have been looking at pictures from a scrolling marquee at Vicksburg mall, to a softball team wearing "Pray for Brayton" bracelets, to posts and messages from people. My family, Brayton especially, is blessed to have SO many people praying! People we know, people we just met, and some people who just happen to know someone that we know are all praying for us! This makes me cry with happiness and also helps give me strength for what we are about to face this morning! I decided to look up "bible verses on the power of numbers and came across this article on "The Power of Numbers." (The web site is listed at the end is where the article is from but will not take you to the exact article.)

Power in Numbers

I believe the Bible teaches us that when we join together the impact is multiplied far beyond just the addition of those who join together.  One plus one equals far more than two.  Let me show you what I mean.

In Deuteronomy 32:30, it says,

How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had surrendered them?

While this verse deals with Israel's disobedience to God and subsequent retreat from their enemies, think of what might be possible when God's people obey Him!  It says that one could chase a thousand, but two could put ten thousand to flight.

While one person can impact a thousand, two people can impact ten thousand.  That is a ten-fold multiplied effect!

Leviticus 26:7-8, when God was giving promises to His people if they would walk in His ways, states this,

You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you.  Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight;  your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.

Notice God says five will chase a hundred, and a hundred will chase ten thousand.  By increasing the number of people times 20, their effectiveness would increase times 100.  Again, that is a multiplied effect.

You have probably heard of the Clydesdale horses, those big, strong workhorses that can pull a lot of weight.  One horse by itself can pull two tons, but if you yoke two together they can pull 23 tons!  That is incredible!

And that is how it works when we pray together with one another.  When we join our forces in prayer and connect with heaven, that is what happens.  There is a multiplied effect. 


Reading this, all I have to say is WOW and thank you all for lifting us up! 

Believe... In love, in faith, and WATCH this miracle! "If you can believe, ALL things are possible!" Mark 9:23
