Does prayer really work?
Yesterday, I was excited to have my granddaughters, Nina and Izabela, come and camp out with Grandma for the week. As we got into my car to head for home, I was compelled to intentionally stop even before putting the key in and say,”Let’s not forget to pray for angels around our car.”
I sat there for a few intense moments like never before. I prayed for angels to surround our vehicle along with their parents’ car which was about to take off bedside us. “Lord,” I started, “Please, I ask for angels from the front of our cars to the back, from door to door, and all in between.” Then on and on I prayed even more than usual before traveling.
Once on the road, for whatever reason, I continued to pray in the spirit. And then, suddenly, it was as if I could feel this force to the left of me. It was difficult to explain but as I looked to my left, this car was three quarters into my lane. This crazy driver was so close, I could see the whites of his eyes! How scary! His car was in rough shape as it was, but it was almost as if it was literally touching me. Again difficult to verbalize the moment — but something supernatural for sure!
“Oh my gosh!”, I screamed. “Mister… What are you doing?” Somehow I was finally clear of him and we continued to watch as he swerved in and out of traffic on the busy freeway ahead. Where was he going, or what was he doing, we had no idea — but he definitely was an accident waiting to happen.
It wasn’t until later in the day that my Aha! moment came. The prayer! Could it be that the prayers that I was led to pray before we started out, could they have protected us along the way … Could God have sent an angelic being right there on I-75 to protect my granddaughters and I from a terrible accident?
I guess I’ll never know for sure, but I know what I think. Hey, what about you? What do you think? Do you believe in the power of prayer and God’s unimaginable divine intervention?
The prayer of the righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16
Let me know what you think and I’ll see you soon, God willing!
Blessings for a great week,
