There is a brother in our church who has sickle cell anemia. He is 32 years old. His name is Fidelis. As you know, most people with SS do not survive so long. This brother is one of the most gentle and spiritual sensitive men I know. He can’t sing at all, but when he tries to do so, the anointing of the Holy Spirit falls on the whole church.
He is a tailor by profession and a very good one at that. His wedding will be on the first Saturday next month. The girl he wants to marry has genotype AA, so technically, there is no problem (none of their children shall be SS).
Theirs is a true love story. They were class mates in Secondary school. Then they lost contact. She went to University and he learned tailoring. They met again ‘by mistake’ last year. It was love ‘at first sight’. Both of them are born again and serious believers. For his sake, the sister changed churches and now attends Father’s House.
I saw him yesterday. He is so excited…’We were like those who dream…’ This wedding is a miracle. He proposed marriage since January but the girl’s father refused to agree. This is because of the sickness that can take his life any time. But she insisted that she wants to marry Fidelis and no other. Last month the father has agreed.
He told me that 60% of the preparations are complete. That he needs some word of encouragement to go on because his money now got finished. I said thank God! For now God can take control! He told me that he loves his future wife very much, that he is not worthy of her. She is beautiful inside out. She has faith that God will heal him completely and both will live long and happy lives. She also believes that they will have children and all the blessings of God. He has some chronic sores on his feet. That is why he only uses slippers. But he has faith that he will have black new shoes on his wedding day. Right now he limps because of the damage done to the hip but he has faith that on his wedding day he will work straight. I agreed with him and said Amen!
Please pray for a true brother and a true sister in Christ! Pray the way you pray for your family! Pray that God will supply all that they needed: joy, peace, health, strength, finances and favor with men. Pray that their wedding day will be glorious and many will give their lives to Christ. For him that they say will die is now the bridegroom ready for his bride! All glory to God!
God bless all faithful humble intercessors!
In Jesus name,
“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2Cor 12:9)
(I will post their wedding pictures that day!)
