Last year in July the whole family and friends converged to Mc Allen Texas for the funeral of my beloved mother, Anelia Charles. She was 96 years old. Mostly for the last 40 years of her life, she was known as a Prayer Warrior. She enjoyed life to the fullest. She was a devout deaconess of her church in Brooklyn New York until she got ill and weakened by a stroke and couldn’t do it anymore. In fact, God blessed her so much that she only had praises to give to the Lord in her prayers for the rest of her life. When facing problems and tribulation in this world the whole family was certain and strengthened that somewhere she was praying, pleading hard with God for the family.
On the night of her funeral wake, all of us have witnessed God’s faithfulness to continue to answer her prayers in behalf of the family. Four of her grandchildren were in a car going home late after the wake. From all account, it was a clear and beautiful night. The streets in Mc Allen, Texas were well lit. Her grandchildren car stopped at a red light waiting. All of a sudden another car came from the back at full speed smashed into the grandchildren car to the left rear side. Moreover, the car spun, veered left toward the incoming traffic lanes, hit a lamp post in the street divider area that fell partially on the grandchildren car, and finally landed in a wall fence of a house nearby. Unfortunately, the driver of that car died on the spot. The grandchildren car was a total loss. The ambulance brought them all to the emergency room, and they were released the same night. It was a divine miracle that they came out alive without not even shed one prick of blood. God is good!
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. Psalm 121:7-8. His words are true and Amen.
