This past Sunday I was watching TV when the 700 Club came on.
It's a Christian broadcasting network that I never watch really, but I was busy around the house and just left it on that channel.
During the show they will ask people if they would like to join in Prayer for other people and yourself if you have a specific
Problem. Everyone was told to put their hands on the part of the body that is causing them pain and we will all pray together. I DO have an issue with my neck which I've had surgery on.
So I just stopped what I was doing, closed my eyes and put my
Hands on the back of my neck. I asked God first to please help
Ll the hurting people in the world, then asked Him to please help me with the shooting pains that I get in my neck.
When it's over the man on the show starts telling people what they prayed about, and the first prayer he mentioned was "the lady with the shooting pains in her neck!? God has heard your prayer and you are healed!"
I just stood there staring at the TV and could hardly believe my ears... That was the first prayer he mentioned! He said not to
Dwell on it anymore, not to worry, so from now on I won't.
I don't go to church anymore and am not a religious fanatic, but I DO believe there is something out there watching out for the good of us all so I still pray. I still believe in the power of prayer!
I wrote this story last summer and am still amazed each time I read it. The host of that show said the lady with shooting pain is going to be alright. I'm not by any means trying to push religion. But it's just too far fetched also for me to ever believe it was a coincidence.
