God’s 26 Guards
Hi Everyone, I know this is a little off the beaten path, but this morning my wife got in a car accident but is doing well. Can’t say much for the car.
An friend of mine who is in our Wednesday night bible study sent me this email, just to let me know that the Lord was in controll.
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 in to 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 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 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 whom 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 behalf of those who love Him.
If you ever feel such prodding to pray, go along with it, you don’t know what it can mean to that person.
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’.
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 in your own daily life… And then pass it on. Who says God does not move on the earth today?
I asked the Lord to bless you as I prayed for you today.
To guide you and protect you as you go along your way.
His love is always with you, His promises are true, and when we give Him our cares you know He will see us through.
So when the road you’re traveling on seems difficult at best, just remember I’m here praying, and GOD will do the rest.
Pass this on to those whom you want God to bless
I Can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Hey guy’s and gal’s,
Tim here with an update if you and if you’re an avid user of Google adwords.
If you use Google adwords or other forms of advertising on Google you may find this recent article on the New York Times that talks about a new feature that is being introduced.
Go ahead and read the article then come back here and tell me what you think. I think Claire Cain Miller has a very nice take on the matter, what do you think.
And she quotes:
Google has made its new product the default way to search the Web. Instant works with the most popular modern browsers in the United States and several other countries. It will show up on cellphones and in browser search bars in a few months.
And If you make a comment and I choose it to be the most informative for my readers I will reward you with some free services. Maybe a free Twitter Background or a Website Makeover. I’ll even let you chose.
That’s it for now!
Until next time.
Have a wonderful day
Hey Guy’s and Gal’s,
I know that this post is a little off the beaten path, but I just had to say a few words about a recent article I got in my inbox from the New York Times. It states:
The unemployment rate rose in August for the first time in four months as weak hiring by private employers wasn’t enough to keep pace with a large increase in the number of people looking for work.
The Labor Department says companies added a net total 67,000 new jobs last month, down from July’s upwardly revised total of 107,000.
Overall, the economy lost 54,000 jobs as 114,000 temporary census positions came to an end. State and local governments shed 10,000 positions. The jobless rate rose to 9.6 percent from 9.5 percent in July.
