Miracle Moments Miracle Moments In Work Life

FTER RECEIVING UPSETTING news about a loved one, a group of visitors in the CHRISTUS St. Mary Hospital ICU waiting room became so distraught that they began throwing furniture and breaking lamps. Security was called immediately. I was the first officer to arrive on the scene. I noticed about 12 people, all very agitated. I was frightened for a moment and then an idea came to mind. “OK. Let us pray,” I said in a loud, strong voice, kneeling on the floor. The family members looked surprised. Slowly, they all began to kneel and pray. In the meantime, a second security officer and policeman arrived, but by this time everything was calm and quiet. I was so amazed by the power of prayer. It was truly a miracle moment in the way that praying brought us together as one.
