Everything in heaven, everything on earth; the kingdom is all Yours! You've raised yourself high over all. Riches and glory come from You, You're ruler over all; You hold strength and power in the palm of Your hand to build up and strengthen all. And here we are, O GOD, our God, giving thanks to You"
(1 Chronicles 29:11-13 MSG)
Welcome to the PRAISE section!
If you have seen God move in your life. Whether it be an answered prayer, a tribulation overcome, or just a general acknowledgement of a blessing(s) in your life, We'd love to hear about it and share it with your fellow members. So send us those notes!

A couple of days ago, a man named Ezra was stabbed multiple times while walking to the local shop. I received a message to pray for him from those close to him. They tried to rob him, stabbing him profusely (even in his face), and almost killed him for that money. He was rushed to a local hospital, bleeding. The bleeding wouldn't stop, and the hospital wasn't very helpful. It didn't look like Ezra was going to make it. Ezra was dieing and no one could do anything.
Just some side info before I continue: You see, we live in South Africa, and although it's a beautiful and wonderful country to live in, the government hospitals are shameful. I had gone to some government hospitals before for visits and it stinks of death, there's blood on the floor and the nurses don't care about the people lying there (they don't wash them and are almost abusive towards them). It seemed more like everyone was just waiting there to die - not to get better. I was horrified by what I had seen, so from then on I vowed to have a medical aid (it's very expensive to have, but if you have it you go to private hospitals which are world class). So you see, Ezra went to a government hospital because they didn't have enough money for a medical aid.
Ezra's father then realized that God was their only hope. He was standing next to Ezra's hospital bed and started praying for him. Ezra's mother was also there, but she was doubtful whether or not praying will help her son. AND THEN THE MIRACLE HAPPENED: Just as his father was praying for Ezra - the bleeding stopped!
GOD IS AWESOME!!
You'll be happy to know that Ezra is now eating and talking (which is miraculous). He's recovering

Hey guys, I would like to praise the Lord for what He's done for me! I was depressed about the major I had chosen in college... I mean I liked it, but I just wasn't sure anymore if I really wanted to to this as a career. I had been considering switching courses, and had looked into my next preference for a career online, only to find that even the requirements to get into such a course were a bit over my head.. Another problem I have is that I don't go to a Christian college, so I'm surrounded mostly by worldly people every day. Their cursing, filthy conversations and such depressed me even more, and one day recently I was so depressed that I left school early and cried. I had prayed about my situation, for the Lord to show me what to do.. And today, I think I finally came to peace with it. I like what I'm doing. I'm pretty good at it, and I know that I'd be happy doing it. Why not continue? So I've decided to go on. Thank You Lord, for answering prayer and for Your guidance in our lives.
Jesus Christ is our only Lord and Savior...
