Power of Prayer

One time, not too long ago, there lived a young woman named Nell. She lived with her family in a small farming town in western Texas. One day, she got her parents' blessing and she moved to the big city of Dallas. She searched for a place to stay, and she found a boarding house. The next day, she looked for a job and found one. While she was in her room at the boarding house, the landlord asked her, "Have you found a church in town yet? Because if you haven't, you should check out my church." Nell was already a Christian, and she agreed to try her landlord's church. Several months later, she knelt by her bed and prayed, "Lord, You've been so good to me. Thank You for my job; thank You for my room; thank You for my church. Lord, I pray that You will send me a Godly husband." The next day, a salesman came into the diner she worked at. He sat at the counter, and they started up a conversation. During the conversation, Nell found out that the man was a Christian. After a while of talking, the man said, "After you're done working tonight, would you like to get a bite to eat?" And she did. Ten days later, they were married and they lived happily ever after.

How could a couple stay together after knowing each other only for a week and a half? How could this be a true story? I'll tell you. If this weren't a true story, the evangelist Morris Gleiser wouldn't be here today. Yes, this is a true story. He told this story at my church last week. He said that his mother Nell is still alive, and whenever she tells this story, she can't tell it without shedding tears. I fell in love with this story when I heard it a week ago.

Think that God doesn't answer prayers? Think again. He answered the prayer of a nineteen-year-old woman for a Godly husband in a way she never could have imagined. God is the God of the impossible.

  1. Hey Lena!
    I love your blog but as I was reading it I found that it was kinda hard to read.
    I have recently got into designing blogs (so far i have just done my main blog and my shop) and I wondered if you would like me to design your blog for you.
    If so i would be very happy to help!
