A friend of my mom’s came over for a visit today. She shared with me a couple of ways that God has worked in her life. One time in particular, she awoke in the middle of the night in severe pain from sciatica. She managed to make it to the bathroom and back to the bed, but in a tremendous amount of pain. Since it was in the middle of the night, instead of calling people she knew, she called a specific prayer line that she would tap into from time to time. The woman on the other end prayed with her that she would be able to rest and to know what to do next. She was able to go back to sleep for a couple of hours. When she awoke, she was still in pain, but knew what to do. She realized that her daughter would be up getting ready for her day. This daughter was a physical therapist. She called the daughter who got on video chat and showed her some stretches to do to help relieve sciatica. The woman was able to do the stretches and then went back to sleep. The next time she woke up, she felt no pain. She moved slowly and carefully, but indeed the pain was completely gone and never returned. I thought that was a great story about the power of prayer.
I Found God today in a story of the power of prayer.
