Miracle Monday-Prayer


Hello my friends, I would like to share what I consider a miracle with you all. Friday, there were quite a few bad storms, and some tornados, here in my area. I live in Chattanooga Tennessee, and my sister lives in Athens Tennessee. She lives about two hours from me. Well, here in Chattanooga, all we got Friday, was quite a bit of rain, and some high winds. But, my sister got much more. She called me, and she was almost crying. She said, ' Nesie, will you please say a prayer for us right now"? I said of course I will, what is wrong? She said the weather was very bad there, there was a tornado warning out for their area. I immediately prayed for them, and when we were through praying, the phone went dead. She called me several hours later, and this is what she told me, their power had cut off. There had been a tornado that touched down very close to where my sister lives, but God had truly watched over them. There was no damage at all to their home, or to them. Praise God!! There are more miracles caused by prayer than people realize. God is a precious miracle worker, and I thank Him.

Oh, Praise God they were safe! I know it was really wicked over here on the WNC side as well. We were under tornado warning as well. MAJOR wind and rain, but praise God, no tornadoes.

Rejoicing with you... I know your sister must have been so afraid. So glad she was able to pray with you BEFORE the power went out; that prayer surely wrapped her in a blanket of peace. God has been mighty good... through all kinds of storms. Aren't you glad He's right there beside you? I know I am...
Blessings, sweet friend...
