I would like to share an experience my mother and father shared when my mom fell ill.
Mom was at work (a teacher) and started to feel very hot, sweaty, dizzy and nauseous. It was almost the end of work, so she decided she was going to leave early. A co-worker noticed her state and said maybe you should sit. My mother heard a voice in her head telling her to stay still. She listened and she sat and she waited. Just when my mother had sat down, she started to clench her chest, the pain went up her arm into her chest. She fainted onto the floor. The paramedics arrived and could not find her pulse. My mother said she was aware of what was going on but, all she could see was big black boots surrounding her. All mom did was pray for this not to be her time. All she could see was all of us(family) in her mind. The voice said calm you will be fine. She then realised she was still here because of the oxygen mask on her face and the echo of the paramedics voices in the ambulance.
Meanwhile at my daughters surgery, my step father got a call saying what had happened with my mother. My daughter was in recovery from her surgery and was almost ready to be brought back home to me. Knowing this he would be with my mother very soon. As he hung up his cell phone it rang again, this time a woman asked for my step father. She asked if someone needed prayers right now and found a need to call because she felt something was not right. My father went speechless not understanding what was happening. Who was this lady and how did she know something was wrong. He finds out it is a member from his church. She did not know anything and felt she had to phone right away. Call this a coincidence or not. They then prayed.
Now my father is by my mothers side, and tells her about this phone call. My mother starts to cry, She said before my father arrived she felt a deep feeling in her heart and heard a faint prayer but it was not her and anyone around saying it. She opened her eyes and all her pain was gone. The machines read she had normal pulse, blood pressure etc.
Now tell me, is this a beautiful, inspirational story. The lord works in mysterious ways and the power of prayers can heal.
