A One-Word Answer To Prayer

October 1976

A family in our congregation was in need, and one of our ladies asked me to pray for them. That night, as I lifted them up in prayer, it occurred to me that God might answer my prayer by inspiring someone else to go and help them, as His agent or representative, so I amended my prayer along those lines: "Lord, somebody needs to go help those people." I got an immediate and unmistakable reply, like a voice in the top of my head: "Well ... ?" So I went.
