That’s where it all started June 13, 2016. When I started praying for a little girl named Emily.
"Just pondering something this morning about what I train for and run and bike for and running a spartan beast race in October.. On behalf of Emily and all others that struggle...
While I train and compete everyday I want to spread the word about Emily to pray for her and spread awareness about what she is going through and how God is at the front lines.. Let me know what you think.."
Nick Apicella 2016
"It all got started 365 days praying for Emily and what came about these big steps in my life has not been about me but about those around me. EMSTRONG is doing so amazing with the help from GODSTRONG. I will continue to pray for this child everyday."
It started with one and now God has placed 77 kids and families that I invest not only prayer but my life by building relationships.
Intercession is praying with the real hope and real intent that God would step in and act for the positive advancement of some specific other person(s) or other entity. It is trusting God to act, even if it's not in the manner or timing we seek.
Nahum 1:7 KJVS
 The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
