Our youngest daughter, Virginia Grace, was born preemie at 24 weeks and weighed a tiny 750g (1.2lbs).

We were told by the doctors that she only had a 50% chance of survival, and that even if she did survive she would almost certainly have one or more chronic life-altering cardiac, respiratory, neurological or developmental disabilities.

But we knew God’s Word had the final say!

We immediately began speaking life over her using promises from the Word of God:

Virginia, you are strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. (Ephesians 6:10)
Virginia, in your pathway there is life and no death. (Proverbs 12:28)
Virginia, no weapon formed against you shall prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)
Virginia, your body functions in the perfection that God created it to function because you are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)

and many others…

But for some reason, even though we were speaking God’s Word over Virginia constantly, she started to deteriorate – to the point where if her condition didn’t improve there was nothing more that could be done for her and her life support would be turned off.

I asked God to show me where I was missing it – and He did!

As soon as I applied what God showed me, Virginia improved and never looked back, and today she is a healthy, whole 6-year-old!
