Do you believe in the power of prayer? I most certainly do. I know prayers on my behalf have been answered countless times. Prayers must be according to His will, not just our own, to be answered.
Last year I went into the hospital on a Monday and my doctor told me on Friday that he was going on a mission trip to Ecuador the next day. I rallied my prayer partners to pray that if it wasn't God's will for him to go, that he wouldn't because I needed him. Well, there was an uprising at the Ecuadorian airport that night and the mission trip was accomplished at a later date. I told my doctor that my worldwide prayer circle kept him here. God works in mysterious ways.
