I think of this Scripture in what the Lord has done through this 7-year-old child: "This was the Lord's doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes" (Psalm 118:23).
With that, please read and pray through the 7 dreams now that this 7-year-old son of the Fords has had. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

First, thanks to everyone who has been praying and even fasting with us! I Just wanted to provide everyone an update regarding my son's dreams. He's had three more dreams since the last update I wrote. My wife and I, along with those I'm accountable to, thought best to wait before sending another update to make sure the stream of dreams had ended, and also to allow more time for understanding. In total, he's had seven dreams from April 14th to April 20th regarding the coronavirus ending April 30th. As parents, you probably can imagine, my wife and I have been asking the Lord what to make of all of this. As a result, here is our update. First, here is my son's first dream given to him on 4-14-2020:
"In the dream, I saw this huge green plant which had a crown on its head, and it was squeezing the earth. The more it squeezed the earth, the more hands or tentacles it grew. Out of nowhere, a Lion that had the body of a Lamb appeared, and it destroyed the plant and ripped it to pieces. Then a date appeared in my dream: This will end on April 30th. And the dream ended."
My son had this dream three nights in a row. While in prayer one night, my son realized in each dream that the crowned green plant, which he understood to be the coronavirus, though it was huge, became smaller in dreams two and three.
For the next three nights, he continued to have a new set of dreams regarding the coronavirus and April 30th. Of this fourth dream, my son said:
"I heard: 'Pray, pray, pray!' and clouds broke apart, and I saw the green plant with the crown, but it was much smaller. It was trying to squeeze the earth but couldn't because its hands and arms wouldn't grow. Then the Lion/Lamb destroyed it again and ripped it to pieces as in the other dreams. And again, I saw at the end of the dream, 'This will end April 30th.'" (Photo via Will Ford of his son praying)
He had this same dream for two more nights, but in each dream, the crowned green plant representing the coronavirus had less strength, had no hands, and became smaller in dream five and six. This brings us to his seventh dream.
In his seventh dream, my son said the following:
"I saw clouds break apart, and I see the crowned green plant and it's smaller than it's been in all the other dreams. And for the first time in all the dreams, the earth was bigger than the crowned green plant. Then the Lion/Lamb appears, but instead of ripping the crowned green plant to shreds as it did in the other dreams, instead, He threw it into a pit. Then I looked at the clouds and I saw 'April 30th.' Then the dream ended."
My wife and I have been blown away by this series of dreams. As I've said before, he normally dreams once or twice a month. And he's never had back-to-back dreams, let alone a series of dreams. Also, my son didn't know that corona means crown. Though he didn't know this, my son associated the crowned green plant that was choking the world to be the coronavirus. Interestingly, he didn't know what to make of the half Lion and half Lamb that destroyed the plant, but we interpreted it to represent Jesus, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5), Who also is the Lamb of God Who passes over us, and cleanses us of our sins (Ex. 12:13). It was the blood of the lamb that stopped Egypt's plague against the Jews, and the Blood is warring for us now in ways we probably can't imagine.
What We Understand and Believe
As I said before, I'd love for this to mean that the coronavirus will suddenly end on April 30th, but, there are many angles and a lot to digest in this series of dreams, which in and of itself is prophetic. I believe that the dreams coming back seven nights in a row are significant, as well as the fact that the coronavirus diminished in strength and size yet came back in another dream. In the first three dreams, it had arms to squeeze and contain, which I believe represents the hold on people, nations, economies, and quarantines. In the last four dreams, it had no arms and diminishes in size and strength, yet came back in another dream. I believe this represents the virus getting weaker to spread yet still trying to attack.
After much prayer, thoughtful consideration, and counsel, I believe these dreams reveal the beginning of the end of the coronavirus and that April 30th is a significant date that starts the end of quarantines and the ending of the virus. Seven biblically is connected with completion. Whether it's a seven week or month time frame, I'm not sure, but I am sure that seven represents completion, and that the beginning of the end starts April 30th.
We feel we've observed confirmations along the way. First, one of the confirmations we've had regarding this is that the president made April 30th the end of the Federal Mandate for states to quarantine and begin the next three phases of gradually opening up, allowing governors to roll out three phases toward opening up their states' economies and increasing crowd requirements incrementally. Our Texas governor also announced April 30th as the end of previous quarantine guidelines. Also, we can't ignore that many parents have sent us videos, text messages, and emails of their children's dreams and prophetic declarations about April and April 30th being a significant date regarding the ending of the coronavirus.
What Should We Do Next?
First, as Believers, we know what's bound on Earth has to be bound in Heaven (Matt. 16:19). I believe engaging our children to pray is creating heavenly breakthroughs that are weakening the enemy, and we must continue to "Pray, pray, pray!" against this virus, even though it tries to sprout up again. I think it's significant that in the seventh dream, clouds break and for the first time in all of these dreams, the earth is much larger than the crowned green plant. Then the virus that once overcame the world is weak, diminished, and thrown into a pit. (Photo via Wikipedia)
We believe He Who has overcome the world is using the prayers of the Body of Christ to rise and overcome this attack. This attack is going back to the pit of Hell that planted this in the earth realm. And beyond this, I believe God is raising up another generation of praying children that will fuel another awakening again.
Let's All Pray Together:
"Oh God, we agree with the prayers of our children; have mercy on us and destroy this coronavirus! For children who have suffered loss, please comfort them. Take our children into a deeper place of intimacy with You. Thank You for strengthening our families in the midst of this crisis. Thank You for doctors and first responders and we ask that You continue to give them guidance and wisdom.
"We pray that as quarantines end, the coronavirus becomes weaker, losing its ability to spread, and one day will end. And in the meantime, teach us all to become like little children in the place of prayer. Surely, we, and the children You have given us, are for signs and wonders (Is. 8:18). In Jesus name, amen."
