God is good, all the time!!

THE POWER OF PRAYER

A few Sundays ago our church had some cards on the stage with the names of all the students going on the the youths fall retreat the following weekend. The point of these cards is for people to pick up one or two and promise to pray for that student.......

My sister and I went to watch the Benton Jr. High cheerleaders and drill team perform @ one of their home basketball games. We were talking with our friend Luke and he had some buddies with him. I heard them behind me talking about fall retreat.. I only knew one of the other guys but if you know me you know I've never met a stranger so I decided to ask if they all went... 3/4 boys went, I then proceeded to ask if they had a good time... One responded, "yea" the other said, "I GOT SAVED!!" Not only did he say it but he said it proudly!! I asked what his name was and introduced myself and told him how excited I was for him!! A few minutes later I told my sister (who was sitting below us) about our new brother in Christ.. I told her what his name was and introduced them... a few seconds later her face lit up because this particular guy was the card she picked up and had been praying for!! (He moved here earlier this year and we did not know him) How amazing is it to see first hand a prayer request be answered!!
