This post brought tears to my eyes. Do you pray to God? :thumb:
It's all well and good for one in his leisure to pray a nice, polite, formulaic prayer to the Father in Jesus' name. I do this like others do.
But, when my third son was turning blue with marshmallow stuck in his windpipe, it was 'JE-E-E-E-E-E-SUS!!!!!!!!' and out popped the marshmallow.
When my infant daughter was turning blue with whooping-cough, it was the same.
When I was pulling an overloaded trailer with a light pickup truck and the trailer began pushing me down a long hill at 60mph towards a narrow concrete bridge and the trailer began slinging the whole rig from one side of the road to the other and I screamed 'JE-E-E-E-SUS!!!!......the rig straightened out at the last second and went straight through the gap.
When an F-5 tornado centered on my house with my whole family in it and me in the shop behind it...when it hit I dove under a welding table as the whole building collapsed and much of it blew away, I was on my knees screaming 'JE-E-E-E-SUS!!!!!' I emerged without a scratch and my house with my family in it was left intact, though it was a direct hit. There have been many more instances than these.
When the universe is fleeing away, there is no other place to go but to Him. He is the only mediator between GOD and man.
Act 7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
Stephen knew who to turn to!
Yes...yes, I do!
