A prayer movement has begun in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach community. A group of friends I am privileged to be part of and a founding member of Firestorm United are equipping people to do what Jesus did.
And I recently wrote an article on how I saw COVID-19 furious at the prayers of the saints on the first day my great friend, Scott Gilbert, led the team to pray at a local hospital.
I am excited to report that God is moving! One of the nurses we prayed and prophesied over is praying over patients. She is telling many people about what God did for her that day in an act of love through prayer and words of knowledge. Many other people are joining with the team praying and worshipping in the hospital parking lots, in a traveling circuit of the Hampton Roads hospitals.
One hospital plays "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey every time a COVID-19 patient is discharged. And the team was captured on video in what I believe is a prophetic act when a patient was being released.
Jessica Brezina shared with me, "While we were at a hospital worshipping a lady pulled up and parked a few spots away from us. She just sat in her car but immediately I felt the Holy Spirit highlighting her to me and wanted me to talk to her. As I went over to her I saw her car door was ajar and she had her palms up and was worshipping. I carefully walked over to her and asked if I can pray for her and that I noticed she was crying. She said that the Holy Spirit led her there to pray for the doctors, nurses and patients. And when she pulled up she saw us there praying and worshipping. And she was overwhelmed by the love of God. She at first questioned why God was leading her to go to the hospital to pray. One of her first questions was to ask what church our group was from, but I explained to her that we are from many churches and are there to represent Jesus as the body of Christ."
Victoria Pevarnik said, "During intercession I was praying for the hospital workers to be bold and filled with the Holy Spirit in sharing their faith and walking in power. Then one of the workers came out and shared how she tries to be the light and wants to encourage all the other workers to do the same." She continued saying, "We had the opportunity to pray for a few workers and EMT, and others came to us asking to receive prayer."
And Scott Gilbert, who goes daily to the hospitals to pray and lead teams, has testified to seeing God heal a security guard's knee. Word is spreading as numerous news outlets are reaching out to share what God is doing.
The Firestorm United group he leads keeps growing locally, and there are many other groups around the nation doing the same, which the Holy Spirit started spontaneously. There is a firestorm prayer movement here in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, but also around the world.
