When my Kindle ran out of juice, I was forced to watch a hour of high drama television tonight. For once I saw the value and did not think I wasted those moments.
There was a woman whose heart stopped while in the emergency department during the show I was watching. They pulled out all of their tricks--pushed all of the bells and whistles. NOTHING---Flat Line. Somehow her husband got past all the closed doors--- needed codes---and locks and walked into the room where they were working. He asked could he put his hands on his wife. Amazingly the doctor granted his request, I suspect he had given up all hope by this time. He walked over--placed his hands on his wife's head, bowed his head, and was silent---the entire room was silent. After a few moments, he backed away and began to leave. All of a sudden her heart beat returned -with no medical intervention going on -her heart began to beat and her blood pressure began to rise. Miraculously she was brought back from death with no medical magic happening- after he prayed for her. The doctor was even flabbergasted and had no medical explanation.
A miracle--perhaps--the power of prayer--perhaps--my theory-the power of love and prayer. I strongly believe in the power of prayer. Having been prayed for I have experienced the power of intervention and supplication, I know it works. Combine prayer and love and it is powerful . What a gift to have someone who loves you and that also knows the power of prayer. Miracles do still happen--you must believe though--and NEVER doubt the power of love and prayer.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
II Timothy 1:7
