A PrayOut Christmas Miracle

For the first time in 28 years my lovely wife and I would be apart on Christmas due to her fathers life-threatening health condition.  The Christmas holiday season is very special at our house. Our 4 children and other relatives join us for several days of playing games and re-connecting.

On a Saturday evening my children and I received the desperate text from my wife that said “PLEASE PRAY HARD, DAD IS HAVING A ROUGH NIGHT!”  She went on to list many of the normal things one expects when it appears to be close to the end. Regrets, another chance, a desire for a better relationship with her dad and an opportunity to take care of him.

Immediately family texts began to fly back and forth. At that time I recorded a PrayOut in my voice for my father in law, wife and her sister who were attending him several states away.  I shared the PrayOut and urgent request immediately to my PrayOut friends and directly to the phone of my wife and her sister.

In no time 7 people had listened to the urgent request on PrayOut.com and began leaving prayers there.  Only yesterday I was looking into the eyes of my sister in law as she was expressing how significant that personal prayer in my voice had been to her that desperate evening.

I could here my wife talking to her other sister in the living room as I reflected on people who pray, the goodness of a God that hears and answers, and the miraculous recovery of my father in law.  All 3 of my father in law’s girls were able to be home with their families on Christmas and then in my home a short time later celebrating together. 🙂

If it is meaningful to you feel free to share with others as Holy Spirit directs.  Prayers will be included with each blogpost and at times we will feature guest bloggers on a variety of topics and their special PrayOut’s for you.
