Have you ever felt the urge to pray for someone and then just put it on     a list and said, "I'll pray for them later?" Or has anyone ever called     you and said, "I need you to pray for me, I have this need?" Read the     following story that was sent and may it change the way that you may     think about prayer and also the way you pray.         You will be blessed by this one.         A missionary on furlough told this true story     while visiting his home church in Michigan...

While serving at a small     field hospital in Africa, every two weeks I traveled by bicycle through  the     jungle to a nearby city for supplies. This was a journey of two days and  required     camping overnight at the halfway point. On one of these journeys, I     arrived in the city where I planned to collect money from a bank,     purchase     medicine and supplies, and then begin my two-day journey back to the     field hospital.

Upon arrival in the city, I observed two men fighting, one of whom had  been     seriously injured. I treated him for his injuries and at the same     time talked to him about the Lord Jesus Christ. I then traveled two     days,     camping overnight, and arrived home without incident. Two weeks later I  repeated my journey.

Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man I had     treated. He told me that he had known I carried money and medicines. He     said, "Some friends and I followed you into the jungle, knowing you     would camp overnight.   We planned to kill you and take your money and     drugs. But just as we were about to move into your camp, we saw that you were surrounded by 26 armed guards.'"

At this I laughed and said that I was certainly all alone out in that     jungle campsite. The young man pressed the point, however, and said,     'No sir, I was not the only person to see the guards. My five friends     also saw them and we all counted them. It was because of those guards that we were afraid and left you alone.'"     At this point in the sermon, one of the men in the congregation jumped       to his feet and interrupted the missionary and asked if he could tell     him the exact day that this happened. The missionary told the     congregation       the date, and the man who interrupted told him this story:  

"On the     night of your incident in Africa, it was morning here and I was     preparing to go play golf. I was about to putt when I felt the urge to     pray for you. In fact, the urging of the Lord was so strong, I called men in this church to meet with me here in the     sanctuary to   pray for you.

Would all of those men who met with me on that day stand up?" The men     who had met together to pray that day stood up. The missionary wasn't     concerned with who they were-he was too busy counting how many men he     saw. There were 26."

This story is an incredible example of how the Spirit of the Lord moves     in mysterious ways. If you ever hear such prodding, go along with it.

Nothing is ever hurt by prayer except the gates of hell.     I encourage you to forward this to as many people as you know. If we     all take it to heart, we can turn this world towards Christ once again.

As the above true story clearly illustrates, "with God all things are     possible" and more importantly, how God hears and answers the prayers of  the faithful.

 After you read this, please pass it on and give God thanks for the     beautiful gift of your faith, for the powerful gift of prayer.
