When we pray, amazing things happen.
Often, as I’m recording a radio broadcast, I sit there knowing the broadcast will be aired sometime after I tape it. And I pray, “Lord, give me Your sense of what I am to say.” When He answers, He sometimes leads me to say things I wouldn’t think of, like, “My friend, you are on your way to commit suicide, and you have drugs in your pocket, but let me tell you: Jesus is your answer, not suicide. If you will, pray this prayer with me.” I have no clue how the Lord is going to end up using these words.
But later a letter will come, saying something like, “I was in the tea shop, and I had drugs in my pocket to go commit suicide that day, but I heard your radio program. It was like you were talking to me. I fell to my knees right there in the tea shop and trusted Christ.”
That example describes a true story that happened some time ago. Today, that man is actually serving with our ministry.
Miracles like this one—and like the ones in the stories of this issue of Harvest—came as answers to prayer. We, as followers of Christ, have been given the ability to bring real change to our generation. We might seem to be the minority, helpless and weak, but with God, we can influence the destiny of multiplied millions of people and nations.
When I read these stories, I know it’s because of the Lord’s grace that Kavi and Sona were able to find freedom after years of addiction. Thank you for your faithful prayers. As you continue on this journey with us, God is using you to lead many people to new life in Christ.
