Power of Prayer

 Here's a message that will bring you chills. 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 to me and may
  it change the way that you may think about prayer
  and also the way you pray.

  You will be blessed by this.

  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. 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
  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 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 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 toward God 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, and for the many miracles
  He works, & will work in your own daily life!...
