We all wish God would answer our prayers and change our lives for better. These people have experienced the amazing touch of God to their lives and shared their stories with us.
Story #1: Lost in the mountains
Once a group of young Christian guys went to the mountains. They were not local to the area and left their cabins before dark with the sun high up in the sky. It was a sunny and warm day. So, they had dressed lightly since were to come back after few hours.
They lingered up in the mountain for too long. It started to get dark, and they headed downwards. They never even doubted of finding their way back to the cabins. After a while, it got very cold. Some folks started to freeze. They got completely lost in the dark and stopped to pray.
Group leader prayed a quick prayer asking the Lord to send them the park ranger to lead them home. Some guys did not even believe such a thing is possible, as they were in the middle of nowhere in the dark.
Just 5 minutes later they saw the car lights and the ranger came over and took them to their cabins! The Lord is good!
Story #2: Immediate healing
We can never do anything to deserve God’s answers to our prayers. This story is a real proof of it. A guy just received Christ into his heart, but for a while, he kept on living as if nothing had changed. He met his buddy, and the two went to have some fun. They got really drunk. Can that happen to a child of God?
Well, it did. The man got really sick. He was in a lot of pain and throwing up. They both sat in the car, dead drunk. The newly converted person felt worse than ever before. He used to drink in the past, but never felt so sick over it.
Now he was in much pain and felt like dying. He got out of the car, asked God to forgive him and to stop his drunk friend from taking him to the hospital. He did not want his buddy to get in more trouble or get killed. Right there God touched the man and cured him. He felt no pain or sickness and got well immediately. God’s power is enough to heal our sins and our pain, too! His mercy is above judgment!
Story #3: God’s messengers
One family had two sisters in it. One of them came to the Lord; the other did not. The unbelieving lady had a daughter of 6 years of age. She got very sick. They discovered the tumor in her bladder. She was in a lot of pain when going to the bathroom. They took her to the hospital to perform surgery.
The believer sister came over and said:
“Pray for your daughter’s healing. You can go to God directly. He is closer to you than you think. Accept Jesus as your personal Savior and your life will change…”
Her sister listened to her and accepted Jesus. They two went home and prayed together for the sick child. The mother returned to her ward. During the night, she sat by the bedside and started to fall asleep. At that moment, her daughter woke up and said she needed to use the toilet. Here is what the mother says:
“She went to the bathroom and peed and peed without pain. Afterward, she said she didn’t have any more pain.”
The next day doctors confirmed that the child was healed completely and needed no surgery.At times, we feel as if God was not willing to answer our prayers or lingers to do so. But the Lord is good. He knows what is best for us, and we can build up our faith to receive His amazing touch.
