Miracle Moments Miracle Moments In Work Life
Answered Prayer  

T WAS A HECTIC MONDAY MORNING, as Mondays tend to be. I was busy with paperwork, and needed to make a delivery to another department. As I arrived at my destination, I noted that no one was around. I did, however, see a light under the door of one office. Since I really needed to deliver the paperwork to an individual in this department, I knocked on the door. A lady opened the door, and I could tell by her face that she had been in tears. I explained what the paperwork was about, and then asked if she was okay, to which she responded “yes.”

I went on my way, but felt concerned for this hurting individual. I had a strong impression that I needed to go back and offer prayer. I hesitated at first, but sensed this was something I was really supposed to do, even if it meant feeling foolish.

PullquoteI walked the long hall back to her office and knocked on the door again. As she opened it, I asked if I could pray with her. She nodded and said, “I have been on my knees in here praying this morning that God would show me that He loves me.”

Needless to say, we were both in awe because we knew this was a ‘miracle moment’ that only God could have orchestrated for both of us. The scripture tells us to give and we will receive. I may have given a little on that special day, but I believe I received so much more in return. There are opportunities every day to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ to our world. God, help us not to miss these opportunities.

May everyone who reads this know that God’s love is everlasting, and that His love never fails.
