The Raven and the Dove – Todd Hostetler
Sam Trejo I lift up Sam. I thank you and I praise you that on that day and in the year to come, I thank you that Sam just feels an overwhelming sense of joy that she has never felt before. There's a freedom and a liberty in that joy that she feels, and I thank you and I praise you that as she just embraces that joy and she expresses that joy back to you, it is the beginning of a year that she experiences things with that joy that she's never experienced before. You’ve shown her joy, but you’ve got so much more for her and this is one of the gifts that you’ve set aside for Sam. So, we just thank you; we praise you for Sam. I thank you and I praise you for the joy that she is to you and the delight that she is in your eye. I thank you that you bring her revelations of that joy on that day, and every day she wakes up and there is new evidence, new understanding, deeper revelation of the joy. I think about people in the Bible who had great revelations on things. Nobody had a greater revelation on the New Covenant than did Paul. Nobody had a greater revelation on your love than did John. I thank you that this is the depth of revelation that Sam is going to have: a deep, deeper revelation on joy than any others. This is what you had said in Hebrews. You had said that Jesus, you had a joy that was unlike any other of your peers. This is the joy that Sam is going to walk in, unwrap and experience your great gift for her in the year to come and I thank you for that, Jesus. Grace Hoffman Lord, I lift up Grace. I thank you for the precious soul that you've created in Grace. I thank you as she gets ready to just enjoy another birthday. I thank you that birthdays are always special when we’re young, but I just thank you that this one is more special than others because it just is a day that starts a brand-new year where she has greater expectations for you and of you. She has a greater expectation to know you better; she has greater expectations of her understanding of you; she has a greater expectation of her relationship with you. So, I thank you and I praise you that for Grace, this is the best birthday she has ever had. I thank you that she's surprised by the things that you have for her. So, we lift up Grace. I speak every gift, every blessing, every joy unto her. The things that Grace has been seeking you for, we stand together and say, “Thank you, Jesus. It's going to be a great, great time day by day of unwrapping all of those things that you have for her, and she sees those things she's never seen before.” We thank you for that in your name, Jesus. Debbie Stahl Lord, I lift up our sister, Debbie. I thank you and I praise you for the sister that she is. I thank you for the creation that you have made in Debbie and I thank you for sharing Debbie with us. I thank you that as she gets ready to celebrate this birthday, there's things that she has been seeking and asking you for, there's things that she has been looking for, and sometimes she's even said, “How long do I have to wait? How long will I continue to ask these things?” but this is a year where some of those things that she’s been looking for are going to be coming into her reality and coming into her life. I thank you that she can have a great sense of expectation and excitement for those things. There’re even things that she has sought from you and asked from you that she's forgotten that she's even asked, but you forget nothing and you have had all of those things waiting for her. As she goes through this year to come, she's going to find those gifts laying right before her ready for her to open up and she's going to be overjoyed at the things that you have for her. She's going to have joy overflowing because some of those gifts she's going to open up and say, “I forgot all about this but thank you, Jesus that you forget nothing!” We lift up our sister. I thank you that it is just the best year of her life and when Debbie looks back a year from now when we're praying over her again, she's going to just reflect and look back and say, “Oh, that was the best year ever. Thank you, Jesus,” and she’ll be ready for the next year of blessings that you have for her. We thank you for Debbie. We speak all of your blessings and promises on her in your name, Jesus. Gene Myers Lord, I lift up Gene. I thank you and I praise you for the man of God you created in Gene. I thank you for his heart. I love sitting down and just talking to Gene because I love hearing the way his mind works and the way you created his mind to have that mind like an engineer where he thinks things through. He truly is one that wants to know. He has that sense of wonder and wants to know things. I thank you and I praise you that you’ve created him that way, and I thank you that the sense of wonder that he has, he's going to continue in this year to come to just find more things that he can just revel in–your promises, your Word, the things that you show him. You’ve got great gifts for all of us, but you’re going to show Gene things you’ve never shown him before. You’re going to show him things that are going to excite him and ignite different kinds of passion in his daily walk with you and different kinds of expectation. We love Gene. Thank you for sharing Gene with us. I speak joy, peace and everything that he and Barb have been praying for, we say as their family, “Amen. So be it. It is done in your name, Jesus.” I thank you and I praise you for that. I thank you for Gene. Doug Aman Lord, I also lift up Doug. I thank you for the man of God that you created in Doug. I thank you for the husband that you created him to be, the father that you created him to be, the friend that you created him to be. I thank you that as Doug just gets ready to enter into a brand-new year, he can look back on the past year and he can look back on all the past years of his life, and he can see the way you've been developing him. He can see the way that you've been showing him, leading him, directing him, and showing him not just deeper things, but showing him new things as well. So, as Doug gets ready to enter into this new year, I just thank you and I praise you that you have a call on Doug. You've always had a call on Doug and he's always answered that call. He's always been responsive. He is a faithful man. He is a faithful man. So, I thank you that you have great excitement in showing him new calls, new things that you know he will be faithful in because when you look at Doug, you see a man that you know you can trust. So, I thank you and I praise you for the ways you're going to use Doug that will even surprise him. We speak onto Doug peace and joy. We speak onto Doug all the things that he's been looking for and waiting for. We just fill him up with all the riches that you have for him. We thank you and praise you in your name, Jesus. Amen, amen.
