Power of Prayer!

Yesterday was a good day! I had heard from Justin on Saturday morning and I knew he was doing good...just not getting his mail as quick as I would like but he was GOOD!!

So at the end of the service Ganky as that our Pastor to anoint Bradley and pray for Justin...I never question prayer but kinda thought it was strange for Ganky to do that knowing we had JUST heard from him. Bradley was anointed and I know that extra prayers just keep him covered a little more!

So then again last night I got in bed late...My Bradley needs some of those prayers! He is going through a break up with his girlfriend and he is so tender hearted he is not dealing with it well! So anyways...about 2:30 my phone rang and well it was Justin!! He once again is doing good!! We talked for a good long time and I just love it that when he gets to a phone he calls!! :) It makes me one happy mama!!

So now back to the anointing of prayer...Justin began to tell me that while on patrol about 8:30 or 9:00 on sunday night which was about 12:30 or 1:00 our time he found an IED and it was a BIG one...10 pounds!! It would have killed him!!!! We both knew that when he was telling me this!!! Then he was hunting the secondary one and never found it!! Later the bomb guys came to the squad leader and said who ever was out hunting that second one was all over the pressure plate but it did not go off!!!

Well I can sure tell you why!!!! Ganky felt it in her heart to have Bradley anointed and well that is why...THE POWER OF PRAYER!! It kept Justin safe from that IED blowing him up!!! My heart is full and I was telling Justin all about this after he had to told me and his words were

"Ganky always needs to follow her heart because that prayer saved my life!!!"

If you don't believe that there is a God...Just say a little prayer and see what he can do!!

Thank you Jesus for answering prayers and Thank you Ganky for following your heart!!!!

Keep Praying....IT WORKS!!!


  1. Be still my heart before it beats right out of my chest! The tears are flowing NOW, just like they were standing at the front of the Church yesterday!

    Oh my dear Justin, I am so thankful that you are safe! I felt that need in my heart and Bradley stood right there in your place! WOW, what a wonderful showing of the POWER OF PRAYER! God is Good ALL THE TIME!

    Thanks for sharing this with me:) I love Justin so much and pray for him constantly! Love you and have a blessed day, SIS!

  2. Thank you for sharing...I JUST only shared today, that I know God is with these Marine sons of HIS. HE is the miracle worker that can literally do the impossible...and yes. PRAYERS are the pipeline to God's ear...WE know this....

    You just keep on believing...God will bring him home to you...this mama is holding your hand today. and hugging you...God keep them all. BIG {{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}

  3. Oh My Gosh Sweetie...
    That Ganky is feeling her Justin love. I am so thrilled that God talked to her heart and she pressed onward with her feelings. It blanketed Justin we sure know that. Praise God. Praise God. I continue to pray for Justin and all of our soldiers over there. I will believe they are all coming home, when we see the last one turn out the lights and leave.

    I will add your sweet Bradley into my prayers as well. We all had that first love, and we all remember how badly your heart hurts. He had been going with her for quite some time had he not?

    I think of you daily sweetie. I hope you are faring well with the kids all graduated and college students. It hurts to see those babies grow up, but you got gipped in that you lost 2 at the same time.

    Many hugs and SO much love sweetie, Sherry

  5. MY goodness I came by from Ganky's! I pray daily for Justin. I am so touched by this. God is so good. For whatever reason he does what he does I might add you have to be one happy praying mama! God Bless You! God Bless your family. I pray because otherwise I could not live in this old world. Thank you both for sharing this beautiful testimony. God is alive and he is paying attention to us! Blessings Anne

  6. Praising God and thanking Him! He is worthy to be praised!!!! He is so good to us! He is not done with Justin yet. I know that! Theresa is awesome to listen to the Holy Spirit and speak up in Justin's behalf! That is how God works...and she is His servant.
