Prompted to pray for a missionary

 

 

A Christian lady promised a South American missionary to pray every afternoon for him. On a certain day this Christian lady had a divine premonition that she should drop on her knees and pray for her missionary friend's fate. After she had prayed for some time, she had the assurance that God had undertaken and delivered him out of whatever danger he faced. She wrote the missionary about the experience, who in turn answered.

He said: "At the very hour when you were praying I was in my buggy on a very dangerous road when the side of the hill gave way and the buggy slipped over the bank. Had it not been for the fact that the buggy was caught and held by a stump, I would have fallen many hundreds of feet to my death. Thank God that you prayed, and that the Heavenly Father answered."
