Empowering her ‘sisters’
Of course, as a kid, you’re saying to yourself, “These people are crazy.” You don’t always get it when you’re real young, but when you start getting into situations yourself, you go back, “They said this. Let me see if this works.”
You begin to pray in your own situation and see that God really does answer prayer and that faith is not somebody’s opinion or what they thought, but it is real. You don’t realize it’s real until you start experiencing things in your own life.
A lot of people say, “I’ll be strong in my faith when I get older.” Well, tomorrow is not promised to you. The devil doesn’t wait until they get a certain age to mess kids up. … A child could experience being molested at a young age, getting their innocence being taken away from them. Our kids needs to know how to pray.
You can have a casual prayer, but the Bible tells us that the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much. Then it comes to the warfare prayer. The Bible says the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but they are spiritual. Prayer is really one of our greatest weapons. You have to pray fervently sometimes. It’s not just, “Oh, God bless me today,” and walk out. You have to spend time in His presence, you have to press past yourself, your flesh, if you’re tired. You have to get into the place where you have clarity. You have to pray God’s word. It is the Holy Ghost and fire.
Prayer accomplishes certain things. Prayer changes you. Prayer changes us so that we can change things. I ask the Lord to “burn up everything in me that is not like You, everything that fights against Your will and Your way. Burn it up.” The Bible talks about being baptized in the Holy Ghost and fire. It is a metaphor in a way, but at the same time, in the spirit that is exactly what it is doing: heating up things and melting things away that are not supposed to be there.
Q: What are your upcoming projects?
A: I am working on a hymns project that should be out this fall. I am also in the studio working on a project with my brother, as BeBe and CeCe. Hopefully, it will be out next spring.
