I wanted to share my story about the power of prayer. My family and I were handing out meals for the 2017 Turkey Outreach when we met a woman.
We asked her if she could use a Thanksgiving meal and/or prayer. She explained that she was the caregiver to her ex-husband and he was currently in the hospital with stage 4 cancer.
She gave us his name and asked us to pray for his situation. As a family, we continued to pray for him.
Two months later, I read a tragic story in the news.
It told of a man on his death bed with stage 4 cancer facing eviction from his home for not paying his rent. He only had a few days until he was being forced to move out. As I read this story, I recognized his name as the same gentleman we had been praying for during the Turkey Outreach. I was so upset that this was happening to him, so I continued to pray and follow
There was so much care in the community that his story went viral. A company in Franklin stepped-up and paid off his debt, enabling him to stay in his home. It’s so amazing to see God answer prayer in a practical way.
