Home Forums Intercessionary Prayer


I wanted to share an experience I had some 5-6 years ago with praying.

It was Sunday and I was driving to a part-time job that I had taken on, because my family and I needed the money. I felt guilty that I had to work instead of being a Sunday School teacher as I had previously been.

I prayed and asked the Lord to help me do something for Him that day, even though I would not be in church and as I pulled up to the next light, I felt that I was supposed to pray for the occupants of the other two cars pulling up. So I did so, and when the light changed I followed one car while the other went in the opposite direction.

I went about half a mile or less and out of the corner of my eye I say a cloud of dust off to the left in front of me. I slowed down and to my astonishment there was one of the two cars whose occupants I had just prayed for…it had run off the road and was lodged in a group of bushes. I stopped and got out and the driver ran to me and I asked if he was OK, and he was. I could see that it appeared that he had missed a substantial tree by a very few inches and the bushes had stopped his car.

He asked for a ride to call a tow-truck and I obliged him quickly as I did not have much time. I told him that God had really looked out for him, as he had just missed the tree. He looked at me strangely, but agreed. After this I try to pray for strangers that I see when driving down the road. The Lord may again honor my prayer and save some of them physically or spiritually.

May Jesus Christ lead you.
