David Berg

31/7/87 DO 2331

1. (DAD PRAYS:) THANK YOU LORD FOR THIS BIRTHDAY! THANK YOU LORD FOR MAMA! Thank You, Lord, for sending me this little girl at the time of my life when I was going to start out doing what really is my life's work. You sent me a real little warrior‚ a real little fighter, Lord, a real little warrior of the faith, a soldier of the faith to stand by me through thick & thin & to help me do the work that You have called me to do, & who has constantly held me up & held up my hands & strengthened me & never lost the faith, never gets discouraged, never gets down, is always cheerful, always looking on the bright side, never ever ever loses faith, Lord!

2. SHE SURELY HAS THE GIFT OF FAITH, AS WELL AS A REAL GIFT OF WISDOM IN ALL OF HER MANAGEMENT OF THE WORK OF THE FAMILY & all of this literature, Lord‚ & the various ministries—the DFing Ministry & all the other ministries that she has been inspired to begin, particularly in the literature, Lord‚ & how she has managed all of this & the personnel & the various fields etc. She has turned out to be a marvellous administrator, an expert manager with great wisdom, Lord, in handling people & projects etc. (Maria: It's all You, Lord! TYJ!) PTL!—To particularly especially complement my ministry‚ Lord, because she does many things that I can't do & things that I don't do. She fills it all out, Lord, & puts real flesh on the bones to make it a full & complete ministry. Thank You for all of her hard work, Lord!

3. WE ASK THEE RIGHT NOW TO BLESS RIGHT NOW HER HEAD & HER EYES, IN JESUS' NAME! (Family gathers around to lay hands on Mama's head.) Strengthen these eyes, Lord‚ for Thy glory & Thy use, & heal these headaches, Lord! She reads so much & so long, Lord, & strains her eyes, really sacrifices them for You & Thy Work, Lord. We ask Thee to rebuke these headaches, Lord, & we resist the Enemy & his lies to try to discourage her with these sore eyes, Lord! We thank Thee she's not gotten discouraged or lost faith but is still trusting Thee for complete total deliverance‚ in the Name of Jesus! TYJ! PYL! Hallelujah! (Tongues) Amen, amen, amen, amen! TYJ! PTL!

4. HAS ANYONE GOT A WORD FROM THE LORD FOR HER? PYJ! TYL! LET THE LORD SPEAK, BELOVED! He can speak through you. All the Gifts of the Church should be here. TYJ! Don't be bashful‚ don't be ashamed, don't be proud! Let the Lord speak, in Jesus' name! Give her messages of encouragement, Beloved! Give her Scriptures! If you get something from the Lord for her, give it out!

Though all the powers of Hell assail!

So come what may, the promise mine,

I'll hold it till the end of time!"
