With Pushups and Guinness World Records
By: Doug Pruden, Edmonton, AB   March 4, 2006

That Polish Christian student Peter Bieniada "Pete" would become a dear friend of mine and a constant reminder of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He would always read scriptures to me at school and ask me if I had any new questions, while telling me of the latest CKER evening broadcoast on the radio.

Peter Bieniada would take me to his mom's house after school and on some evenings on the weekend.  His Mom would lay out the silver and dishes and put Ukrainian and Polish food on the table and tell me to eat and eat more, making an impression on me.

Doug Pruden, Guinness World Records in Pushups. Christian testimony of Doug Pruden. Inspirational stories, true amazing stories about angels, cats, people that are inspirationalI WOULD RATHER WATCH TV THAN GO TO CHURCH

I was always invited to church and Peter always quoted John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life”.  Everlasting life to where?   We live in the real world of ‘suffering humanity’ and school work. I would rather watch T.V. over Kraft dinner. “My family was not like that”, I thought.

Peter had a modest home and T.V. but I almost never saw him watch it. His Mom and Dad and brothers would instead talk over dinner and get to know each other through Jesus.  He tried to get me to go to his church but I turned him down many times.

At school he and myself, like other kids were called names. I just ignored all of it and went on with my school work and desires after high school, which included college and whatever career. I was never much into the music scene and drugs and occasional booze parties while in school.  I was also not very social either so maybe that helped.

I feared not doing my homework and getting into trouble at home. I suppose every other kid grew up like that. I never had the self-confidence or self esteem to get the really great marks in courses like English and Math. At home we ate well and studied hard.  I passed and made it through school.

One day in 1978, Peter asked me if I would go to church with him.  I thought, "Oh  I may as well, he was so nice to me all these years, so why not”.

The place he took me to was the Edmonton Revival Centre - the Faith Cathedral Church (Pentecostal, speak in tongues type of place). I did not know what to expect so I said to Peter; "You will sit beside me, won't you?"  Peter said, “YES”!   So I went.

A fireball of a Minister named Max Solbrekken was preaching.  Max Solbrekken spoke and then asked if anyone there would like to receive Christ as their personal Saviour. Peter nudged me a bit - "Would you like to go up?"  I answered softly and nervously - "I don't know Peter."

As if trying to quell my already frayed nerves he said:  "I'll go up if you do."  I thought: “I am not a dirty drug using sinner that needs help. I am just a school kid”.

But the real issue was whether I was going to go to heaven?  And will I have a personal relationship with this Jesus Christ he had talked to me about for years?  THAT WAS THE ISSUE.

THE CALL TO FOLLOW JESUS

So I stood up and went to the “altar” with Peter and bent my knees like the others there to pray for forgiveness of sins and accept Jesus Christ as my Saviour.  All of what Peter taught me and all of his work in my life came to a head right then and there.  I was SAVED and I was like Peter, "a Christian person".

After I wiped away all the tears, Peter and his Mom and I went to their place to eat.  He asked me how I felt after this experience. I said: "better, but seemingly more happy than I was before"  I went into the Revival Centre. I guess that was proof enough for Peter that his work and love towards me was worth it.  Only time would ever tell.

AS THE YEARS WENT BY, I learned more about speaking in tongues and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire.  A few years later, I finally got that "speaking in tongues thing" at a Morris Cerullo event.

I began to read my Bible more and talk to family and strangers about the love of Jesus Christ.  I discovered a unique purpose to my life and that was to reach out to young people in the same way that Peter did to me.

Over the coming years I went to conferences in Canada and the USA to learn about Ministry.  I sat under teachings by Tony Campalo, Benny Hinn and Bill Macartny of Promise Keepers.

I reached out to kids by going to malls and talking to kids after school.  Kids practically grew up with me in the 1990's in south Edmonton.  I had a heart for them and wanted to see then changed in Christ.

People would sponsor me, buy me lunch and I would just keep on telling them about Jesus.  I would go to their graduations and open houses and meet their teachers and eventually get favor to speak at some schools.  I wanted to really make a difference and change the world.

I RECEIVED A BURDEN TO REACH YOUTH

I went to the University of Alberta and gave out gospel tracts until the U of A student president finally wrote about them in the ‘Gateway’.

I went to public events frequented by the secular media with the hopes of making a difference and voicing my opinion on everything from policing and school drop-out rates to public architecture. I needed a unique edge.

I went to clubs and bars and worked them just to share something about the Lord.  I got a permit in 1992 and became a performer for the first time at the Edmonton Fringe Festival.

I could not sing or juggle so I did what I knew best, that is to do 1000 pushups in 20 minutes. I had a busking show.  As word spread, people notarized my act as the one that did push-ups "for Jesus" because I said things or prayed to Jesus during the shows.  I had even put Philippians 3:14 on a sign and my shirt  "I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength."

People asked me repeatedly how many more push-ups I could do, even referring to world records in the Guinness Book. I began to seek the Lord on this and how I could mold myself into a champion with push-ups. I read the Word of God where Isaiah says:  "Those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.  They will mount up with wings as eagles.  They will run and not grow weary and they will walk and not faint".

Faith frees a person to do his best and to achieve his potential. Successful people believe they can overcome and win a battle. Think success!  Proverbs 23:7 says: “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  We must believe that we are a champion. I needed to believe I could be a champion. I never liked physical education in High School but with Jesus helping me, I could “do anything”.  Have a will to do whatever it takes.

My faith in Christ gives me assurance and the confidence to win.  Philippians 3:13-14 says:  "Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."

Doug Pruden, Guinness World Records in Pushups. Christian testimony of Doug Pruden. Angels stories, Angels 'birdies' came to take 3 year old to heaven, Angels true story, Inspirational angel stories, true amazing storiesFOCUSING ON CHRIST

Focusing on Christ is a worthwhile purpose! You don’t know how strongly you feel about something until you have to stand up for it. Be fixed, unwavering and certain. That is what Jesus is to me. Certain and unwavering faith is what you have to have within you to do a lot of pushups and to challenge any world record that may be there.

Physical strength is from training, but courage comes from God.  God wanted to give me courage and He supported me in “being the best”.  Psalms 37:4 says:  "Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart" - Proverbs 16:19 states: "A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps."

I learned early on to write down my goals and read them every day, believe them, sleep them, dream them! Get them in your head. Forget your past and believe in your future as the champion.  Not to live by chance, but by a planned purpose in Christ.

When we prepare ourselves for adventure, our setbacks and losses become building blocks rather than stumbling blocks. And stepping stones instead of headstones.

Sacrifice, discomfort, pain, injury and the will to suffer in sports to gain, exceeds the need for comfort.Romans 12: 1 says that we should present our bodies as a living sacrifice to God.  Romans 5:3-4 says: “We glory in tribulation, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance character and character hope."

Doug Pruden, Guinness World Records in Pushups. Christian testimony of Doug Pruden. Inspirational stories, true amazing stories about angels, cats, people that are inspirationalIN 2001 I ATTEMPTED MY FIRST WORLD RECORD

The first time I ever attempted a world record with pushups was in August 2001 at the Edmonton Fringe festival. I managed after many different attempts to do 102 one-arm pushups in one minute.  That record was accepted as a world record. However, heartbreak set in a year later as I discovered that someone else had beaten that record by 18 push-ups.

Evander Weber of Switzerland did 120 one arm pushups in one minute and made it into the 2004 Guinness Book of world records.  I was crushed in my heart and had to seek a lot of counsel, as I did not make the book. People prayed and told me to press on and try “other records”.  There were none to try, at least that I was interested in.

The August 2001 record attempt took me months and months of work to get the documents together for invigilation by Guinness world records in London , EnglandThey required things like: photos, video, witness letters, and the need to perform the attempt in a public place, in my case, the Edmonton ‘Fringe Festival’.  After the Edmonton fringe festival was done in late August, I began to go over all the record attempt paperwork that people signed at the fringe festival and videos made and got then ready for Guinness.

11 SEPTEMBER:  EVERYTHING ON HOLD

Then, just as soon as I got things started everything was put on hold because of the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York.  Witnesses who had seen my one arm pushups ecord at the fringe festival were not in the mood to immediately give letters, and besides I also was watching the world’s reactions on T.V. over the September 11 terrorist attacks.

During the many weeks and months that went on after the September 11 terrorist attacks I did a bit here and a bit there and started to get documents for Guinness organized and that was delayed further by the coming cold winter in Edmonton.

Just before Christmas, I finally got all the documents to Guinness World Book of Records.  The world record of 102 one arm push-ups in one minute was accepted in March 2002 as an official world record.

However my balloon was burst, Evander Weber whom I tried to beat did another one on October 2001, thus nullifying my chance at being selected as the latest unbeaten record for inclusion in the millions of copies “Guinness book of records 2004.

I was stunned that the record I worked so hard at was beaten before the book was ready for the presses.   I just wanted to give up and give up on hope I had always had for things in God.  God after all “seemed to have lost control” of my circumstances and that of making it into the biggest selling book in the world. I NEEDED STRENGTH AND COURAGE TO GO ON, but only found misery and defeat. And time to have a good cry.

We read in Psalms 46:1: “God is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble.”  We need to establish our foundations on God’s Word instead of on emotions that can fluctuate.

Doug Pruden, Guinness World Records in Pushups. Christian testimony of Doug Pruden. Angels stories, Angels 'birdies' came to take 3 year old to heaven, Angels true story, Inspirational angel stories, true amazing storiesTHERE IS NO OTHER NAME THAN JESUS AND NO OTHER PLACE BY THE HOLY SCRIPTURES

There is no other name that we can turn to but Jesus. Where was I to go for a new set of values and beliefs?  I turned to my Holy Bible and the Holy Scriptures.  In   Psalms 55: 22 it says:  "Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall" and "Wait upon the Lord and keep His way, and He shall exalt thee to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it." (Psalms 37:34)

Believing God was a very tough thing to do, when you have been bumped out of the biggest selling book in the world, “The Guinness Book of World Records”To me that is the “Academy Awards” of pushups, to have a world record and have your name in the book. Kids at schools always asked me: “Are you in the book, Dougie?”  I always told them: “With God’s help I will be."

My next attempt was not till July 1, 2003, when I tried to beat Roy Berger’s record of 3412 push-ups in one hour and I did that on CTV at West Edmonton Mall.  I only reached 2500 plus.  I failed again and was well short of the Guinness World Record.  I spent money on that record and the Mall had pre-organized it for months, how could I lose that too.

I gave everything and every single attempt back to Jesus in tears. BACK!   I gave the talent and gift back. BY THIS TIME, I DEFINITELY GREW WEARY.  “What now”?  I asked the Lord.

I knew I needed faith to carry on. Back to the prayer closet and back to the prayer partners.  Could you pray for me about…..? Could you say a prayer for me about this and that? Strength, Lord!  Commitment, Lord!    Don’t give in or give up. Try something, anything.

Doug Pruden, Guinness World Records in Pushups. Christian testimony of Doug Pruden. Inspirational stories, true amazing stories about angels, cats, people that are inspirationalFIST PUSH-UPS

On the internet there is a record of 1000 in 19:20 minutes by Roy Berger.  How about 4,700 by a Russian karate guy in 3:20 hours.  That is a lot of push-ups to do.

I started to organize the two latest fist pushup attempts.  Hire the judges, get the video camera, get a photographer, get back into the swing of things and let God be GOD.  And get letters made and send them off.

On July 8, 2003, I did the fastest set of fist pushups ever done, reaching 1000 in 18:13 minutes beating the previous record by almost 1 minute.  My faith was being stirred.

It took a year before I tried the next record. The next one was also a fist one held by the Russian Karate guy!  He completed 4700 in 3 hours and 20 minutes!   And he had to stop the exercise because he passed out for 30 seconds at the 4700 mark which resulted in the end of his performance.

My goal was to surpass his total by a lot.  On July 9, 2004, I reached 5557 in 3 hours 2 minutes and 30 seconds.  It was broadcast on the news that night and I had quite the testimony and story to tell. The judges were amazed and gave their letters and I got the video and sent things off to Germany to get approval to which they did.  I was on a roll.

MORE RECORDS AND GLORY FOR GOD

I prayed to the Lord, read my goals and cased out more world records.  I called a few friends for support and kept training. September 2004 came and I called Guinness World Book of Records in London, England and asked them if there was a category for “most one arm pushups in one hour."  Praise the Lord, there WAS a category.

A NEW category that no other athlete had tried with The Guinness World Book of Records, “The most one arm pushups in one hour” said The Guinness World Book of Records representative.  No one currently has this record,” Guinness said on the phone to me from London.

I got on the internet and applied for the guidelines for that record and started practicing and planning.  October 22, 2004 was set as the date for the attempt for the most one arm pushups in one hour.

I phoned judges and got a photographer and called the media just before the big day. One problem was that I did not wait for the actual rules & requirements to come in and meanwhile The Guinness World Book of Records changed them since August 2001 when I did my first “Guinness” attempt.

The Guiness World Book of Records now require 2 video cameras (one for the side and one for the frontal view of me).  I only had one video camera.  It was a few days before the attempt date AND I DID NOT HAVE A SECOND Video CAMERA. A friend of mine called a camera store that had previously donated film.  The friend Stew asked the owner of the store if he could sell him a VIDEO camera very cheap or loan one for nothing for Doug’s attempt.

The store owner “agreed to loan a $4,000 video camera for nothing”.  I was so happy for my friend helping me out (he was a Christian you know). So I arranged to immediately pick it up the day before and get things ready for October 22, 2004.

That day I did 1,777 (a nice number) - one-arm pushups in one hour of exact time with judges and 2 video cameras.  The Guinness World Book of Records got the package a week later by courier.  I was good at this.  That record was :"praise the Lord" accepted by Guinness.  It MADE the 2006 Guinness book of records.  Now I really had something to talk about in Christ.

I reminded myself of Philippians 3: 13-14 that says:  “Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."  Our talents are God given and we must use them for the Lord. God gives us a unique assignment that He can use with us to change lives and bring people to the Lord.  God is a big thinker.

Once I made the book I showed my friends, and family. Now, I thought, why not become a multi Guinness world record holder? Not just to establish records, but also to pass other peoples already established world records. I checked The Guinness World Book of Records  for other weird records. A British man by the name of Kevin Jefferson had established a world record in ‘back of the hand’ pushups.

He did regular pushups, but did them completely on the BACK OF THE HANDS.  Paddy Doyle started that in the year 2000 by doing 600 of them in one hour.   It took me about 4 years to muster up enough Holy Ghost courage to try a few.  They looked like they hurt! And they did.  I could not do 10 in a row.  And Paddy did 600 and eventually Kevin Jefferson completed over 1584 of them (Oct 20, 2002). How could I do that?

PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE & GOD

April 29, 2005 was the set attempt date.  I did the record.  I hit 1807 in one hour.  A few months later Guinness REJECTED the record.  The Germans said it was good but Guinness wanted to see me do it one more time with a more rigid body position.  REJECTION!

Scriptures could not change the fact but SCRIPTURES could change MY ATTITUDE towards the rejection. That they did, and I read the Word then went to work.

First, I video analyzed my own body doing pushups to see if I could see the errors.  I was a bit shaky.

After much prayer and patience, it was decided that I was going to do the attempt over AGAINThis time I would make sure I did the most perfect pushups as I could.  Make each pushup COUNT while keeping my body completely rigid.

July 8, 2005 was set as the date the gym and the judges could do it.  I hit 1781, 197 past the record of 1584 set by Kevin Jefferson in 2002. My attempt with all its details was submitted to Guinness World Book of Records.  The summer came and went and winter was almost here.

I still had not heard back from Guiness World Book of Records on my new record.  Delay, delay, delay.  It was suppose to take a few months for them to get back.  No answer, nothing to tell people.  Nothing to share about what God did. Delay did not mean denial with Guinness, because they hadn’t sent me a denial e-mail which is usually sent with a rejection.  Wait and wonder, what now?

While browsing the Guinness website I noticed that they were having a first ever Guinness world records “DAY” on November 9, 2005.  I thought, “LET’S DO ANOTHER ATTEMPT, BUT WHAT?"

I did one arm, I did fist, I did two arm and failed years ago, I did back of hand.  What could I do?  How about, the “most one arm back of one hand in one hour?  That is 441 by Bruce Swatton of the U.K. Yikkess!!!!     I could barely do the back of hands never mind the one arm back of ONE hand.  God said: “YES you could. I saw you do one.” I did do ONE at the Edmonton Fringe in 2005.

Actually, I did a few at the end of shows but never treated those show “conclusions” as a real contender for an ACTUAL world record.  So I applied to Guinness and got the rules and started to practice, as I had to learn this by November 9 (Guinness world records day).

I could only do 10 at a time, if that.  But no worry, the other guy ONLY did 441 in an entire hour.  Surely I could hack 10 here and 7 there, etc till an hour is done. “Jesus, with You all things are possible and I believe that,” I said to myself.

In training I could do almost 300 in half an hour.  Again 5 here, 7 here 13 here 10 here and so on and see just how the timing is and how much actual pain there is in doing ONE ARM BACK OF ONE HAND.  And you have to use the SAME hand!  I knew it might hurt somewhat towards the end, BUT it is only for an hour.    Besides, Jesus suffered more.

Let’s put this in real perspective.  So I could put up with an hour!  I phoned the judges and they all could work it!   It was coming together.  I just had to pray for the media, because that is usually a busy time in the midweek being on a Wednesday.

Global News Edmonton showed up, only AFTER a few hundred push-ups were done.  Presto, we had the last Guinness verification requirement;  A media presence.  All fulfilled.  I did 1781 in one hour all on the back of the hands.

In February 2006 I finally got all the certificates for both world records and assurance from Guinness of possibly making the 2007 book.  I did 1781 in one hour all on the back of the hands.

It was a great time to give praise to the Lord. Faith frees us to do our best whether it is push-ups or just living life every day. A champion’s heart is one molded into a likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ’s.  He did that for me, taking me from defeat to victory.

To be a success we MUST believe that we can win THE BATTLEWe can’t think defeat and serve the Lord. Go in and EXPECT to win.  Proverbs 22: 24 says: “Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings”. Jesus is our King

Perseverance produces character. And character produces hope.

James 1: 17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from the above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with Whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” The Bible says in Hebrews 11: 6, “Without faith it is impossible to please God!"  Psalms 84:11 declares, “For the Lord is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly."

That is a call for us to believe that God is who He says He is!  It is a directive for us to walk in faith and by faith in Christ. It is incumbent upon us to not give up in defeat but to keep trying and to set our hearts on the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus! We are destined to win as long as we don’t give up, and to perfect what it is He calls us to do.

We have His promise, so we are able to set realizable goals and to persevere. He gives us the faith to believe in Jesus to save us, redeem us, to help us, to comfort us, to exalt us, to reward us, to give us His inheritance so we have something to talk about for future generations. And write our own story, our own testimonial, and our own history. To God be the glory.  Amen.


I WAS A DRUNKARD, 
GOD INTERVENED IN OUR LIVES:  
  
God brought us forgiveness, healing, 
peace and great joy
by: Norman & Angela Casavant, Edmonton, AB

God was searching for us before we believed or even sought after Him!  In theology, we call that the 'prevenient grace' of God!  That separates the Christian Faith from all other religions!

In them,. men are striving to appease God, but the Bible teaches that "God was in Christ reconciling us to Himself" for the cross.  True Christianity is God searching after men!  The Casavant's witness is strong evidence of that!       - Max Solbrekken

NORMAN says: God has been good to us!  We have so much to thank Him for! I was ‘a drunkard for many years and Angie had to put up with me. Then Jesus saved me and gave us a brand new life! Jesus has become very real to me and we pray every day and He answers our prayers!

God intervened in our lives, by Angela & Norman Casavant, Edmonton, AlbertaGod has saved me from certain death several times. The Lord has healed me miraculously and given me good health and strength so that I am still working like a young man at 73 years of age!"

ANGELA says: The Jehovah Witnesses used to come to our home and that is how I started to read the Bible! Being a Roman Catholic, they told me that that is like ‘the blind leading the blind.’ I asked: ‘Who is blind’? Then I realized that they also were blind because they didn’t teach what the Bible teaches either!

One day in 1975, I accompanied our son Leonard to Leduc to baby sit his children, while he visited his lawyer. There was a Christian Bookstore nearby and while we waited, I decided to visit it. When I entered that building, a strange feeling came over me and I had to pinch myself to see if I was alright.

Miracles, inspirational miracle healing testimonies. God intervened in our lives by Norman & Angela Casavant. Inspirational stories by Doug Pruden, Guinness world record holder, Jo and Rodney Moody healing testimoniesThe owner of the Bookstore began to talk to me about Jesus, saying that although he had other plans that day, he felt compelled to come in.

Before I left, I had prayed the sinner’s prayer with him and received Jesus Christ into my heart! He referred me to a pastor, who told me that I was NOW a new creature in Christ and my sins were washed away because I had received Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour and confessed Him as my Lord. And that a new life had begun for me! He said: "We can know that we know we are saved." (1 John 2:3-6, 3:5, 14, 19, 24; 1 John 4:2-6, 1 John 13:5-20)  Read Romans 10:9-10), John 1:11-12, John 5:24-26)

My husband was not interested in the Gospel. He was mainly interested in the Bottle of Alcohol.  ! I thought: “What did I do to deserve this? Married to a drunkard all these years?” I used to listen to Pastor Max Solbrekken on the radio and I said: “I’ve got to go to hear him preach!"

I went a few times to his church with some women, but everything was strange with people falling down when they received prayer! Norman ridiculed: “They fall down because they are weak."

NORMAN says one day in 1983, a nun telephoned us. She said: "Norman , you need Jesus!”  Then, in French, she asked me to repeat a prayer after her! It hit me right there. I started crying like a little baby.  I had lost my drivers licence for a year, after being in a collision with a City Bus. While waiting for the police to come, I polished off a Mickey of whiskey.  After the prayer, however, something wonderful had happened.  I was born again.

I read the Bible every day.  It was so beautiful, like a dark cloud had lifted.  I did not know what was going on.  It was something new.  I didn't feel like drinking or smoking any more!

I was 16 when I started drinking, and at 53 I was totally changed after praying the ‘Sinner’s Prayer’. I had smoked 3 packages of cigarettes a day and drank a case of beer, some rum and a 26 oz bottle of whiskey nearly every single day!  Since that time, and for the past 21 years, I have not had any desire to go back to the old life. Hallelujah to Jesus, for the freedom we enjoy in and through Him!

In 1989, I was offloading a sheet of very heavy plywood from a truck at W.W. Arcade in Edmonton (4 ft x 8 ft x 1 inch). I wrenched my back out of place and could hardly move. I was all bent over and could only move very awkwardly. Other staff members were going to call an ambulance, but I said: “I’m going to see my doctor."

I called Pastor Max Solbrekken. He met me at the church and after a time of prayer, I was instantly healed. My back was normal, as if the accident had never occurred! Within a half an hour I returned to work. My co-workers were absolutely shocked. They expected me to be in the hospital and off work for several weeks. They said: “What happened? What did the doctor do? Who is your doctor? We can’t believe what we are seeing?"

I answered, “My pastor, Dr. Solbrekken prayed for me and I am perfectly well! Jesus - the Man Upstairs – healed me right away. He is my HEALER.” They wondered if I was going to take some time off, but I said: “I’m ready to go back to work right now!” MY BOSSES WERE AMAZED! That same afternoon they sent me out to deliver (2 pallets plus 10) 60 cement blocks, each weighing 70 to 80 lbs. I had to physically lift those sidewalk blocks (24 x 24 inches) off the truck and stack them by myself! And I had absolutely no pain! Praise God!

In 1993, I fell through a hole in the roof we were shingling, at my daughter and son-in-law’s home in Macklin, SK.  It was a 12 foot drop and I landed on concrete. My spine was severely damaged with several broken and cracked vertebrae. When we got back into Edmonton .  I went to the Capilino MediCentre. Ex-rays were taken, giving me the bad news. I was told that I would not be able to work for 6 months.

That Sunday evening, I returned to my old church Faith Cathedral (now called People’s Church) Pastor Max was preaching. As he laid his hands upon me in Jesus’ precious name, I was made instantly well and have had NO more problems with my back since that moment! I could go on and on about God’s goodness to me! Amen.

By B. A. Sutkus     

My daughter had her parenting cut out for her.  Only two days after my grandsons Josh and Jarod, identical twins, were born, my daughter brought them home from the hospital.  The babies weighed only about four pounds each, and my daughter had dressed them in Cabbage Patch nightgowns, the only clothes she could find to fit them.

For the next five days, we all pitched in.  The household revolved around  these two tiny creatures.  They ate every two hours, and we spent virtually the entire day in some stage of feeding them: making bottles, emptying bottles, cleaning bottles, changing diapers, preparing more bottles.

After the twins had sucked down the last of their 8:00 p.m. bottles and we had changed them and tucked them into bed, we would head to the kitchen for a cup of coffee and a much-needed break.

What we needed was a full-time, paid staff.  What we had was Smokey, the family cat.

Smokey had been absolutely fascinated with the twins since the day they came home.  Smokey  spent more time at their side than we did, watching them curiously or napping near their beds.

We watched Smokey the cat  cautiously at first, making sure he didn't hurt the babies, but though he never left their side, he never got too close to them.  He seemed a loyal caretaker.

One evening, though, we briefly doubted our trust in Smokey.  We were unwinding in the kitchen when Smokey let out a blood-curdling howl, like an animal killing its prey.

We raced into the twins' room, and the sight that greeted us filled us with terror.  Smokey was almost sitting on Josh, the smaller twin, butting the baby's little body with his head and literally rolling him around the crib.

As we ran to save Josh from what we thought was serious injury or worse, Smokey suddenly lay down and started softly mewing, almost moaning.  That's when we discovered that little Josh wasn't breathing.

Cat stories, amazing cat stories, Smokey the Life saving cat, true life miracle cat story. Smokey the cat saved our children's lives. Inspirational stories, true amazing stories about angels, cats, people that are inspirational, inspirational thoughtsI immediately started CPR while someone else called 911, and an ambulance raced Josh to the hospital.  It turned out that both boys were highly allergic to milk.  Their bodies had reached their limit in milk intake, and because Josh was smaller, he had gotten sick sooner.

Mercifully, Josh had not been without oxygen for very long.  Smokey had realized that Josh had stopped breathing and alerted us just in time.  Josh would be fine.  In fact, the doctor said Smokey had definitely saved Josh's life.

Over the following months, the family settled into an amiable routine.  Then late one night, Smokey jumped into bed with my daughter and son-in-law and started to bite and scratch them.

More annoyed than puzzled at the cat's strange behavior, they got up to shut him into the bathroom for the night.  But Smokey dodged their grasp and darted upstairs to the twins' older brother John's room.

When my daughter followed in the chase, she found John so ill that he couldn't move or call for help.  "My chest," was all he could say.  When he underwent emergency heart surgery, the doctors found that his aorta was almost totally blocked.

Smokey, the hero-cat, now holds a special place in our family.  He may have been content to be your typical family pet when the house was half-empty, but as it filled up with children, he decided he better promote himself to a mothering position.  When it comes to raising a houseful of kids, Smokey figures it doesn't hurt to have some extra help.

Hebrews 13:2  Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some 
have entertained angels unawares.

NIV:  Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people 
have entertained angels without knowing it.

IN-OPERABLE CANCER
Rodney & Josephine Moody, 1575 Robson Lane, Cowichan Bay, BC   V0R 1N2

Dear Pastor Max Solbrekken,

It was so good to see you again in Nanamio, BC.  To think we met you over 38 years ago in Victoria, BC at a healing revival meeting in the Empress Hotel Lounge.  That is where Jo and I were healed by the Lord Jesus.  I was healed of severe sinus infections and Jo received a miracle in her spine.

We thank the Lord for you Pastor Max, as you are person who never stops traveling for Jesus. And the good of God’s people, and for the good of people who are going to become God’s people.

As I look back on my life:  When I was a boy, our pastor prayed for me one night that I would always live for the Lord and never just become a pew warmer, but be a doer of the Lord’s work.

Well, a few years after meeting you in 1966, you returned to Victoria and preached one night on getting the job done:  Getting God’s Word out to needy people.  Later that night during prayer-time, you prayed for me.  You asked me what I was going to do that week besides working at the University, I told you that I would be visiting hospital patients who had asked me to see them.

Brother Max, you prayed that God would use me to pray for the sick.  What experiences we have had at the hospital and at churches, praying for sick people since that time!  God healed many of them in a matter of a few days and they were blessed of the Lord.

The next year, the Holy Spirit called us into the ministry as we had been waiting on the Lord and since our family of five were just about grown.  And even though we loved our home church, Glad Tidings, in Victoria, BC, God told us to go and tell Christians He wanted to heal them!  I became a Pentecostal Assemblies of God lay preacher. We were asked to take many meetings and the Lord healed many people!  We did this for many years.

I became sick one day - very sick.  Although I have a yearly medical checkup due to the fact that we travel extensively, I felt I needed to see the doctor again.

The doctor discovered that I had CANCER, and the Cancer was so advanced that I could not be operated on.

We prayed and our pastors also prayed, as well as Christian friends.  We were all believing in healing.  And we phone Pastor Max Solbrekken to pray.

I had good days and bad days.  I would always wake up and say, "Lord Jesus, You are the Lord that healeth me." (Exodus 15:26)

One afternoon I was reading Psalm 91 and verses 14, 15, 16 stood out. I called Jo and said, "I am not going to die with cancer  because God’s word says,  With long life I will satisfy him.”  

Shortly after this experience, the doctor’s tests were showing that I did not have cancer! Jesus had healed me!  Quoting the doctor’s words - not my words, nor the Lord’s words - the Doctor said: “You have had a miracle. All cancer is gone out of your body. It was your faith that helped you. We did the best we could.”

I personally thank the doctors, hospital and all the medical staff for all they did for me!  Jo and I attend 'cancer supported groups' at the hospital as often as we can fit it in with our other ministry work. Jo and I both thank the Lord Jesus for helping us. And we want to thank our friends for praying that Jesus will keep us true.

If there are pastors or church boards that would like us to come and have a meeting with them, please contact us.

LOWER BOWEL LYMPHOMA

By: Josephine Moody, Cowichan Bay, BC

Hello Pastor Solbrekken,

It was good to see you and we enjoyed the blessings of the services in Nanaimo, B.C.

The Lord is good!  He has kept my back in perfect condition since it was healed by Him 38 years ago when you prayed for me.

Now this spring I was diagnosed with lymphoma in the lower bowels, which was a rare place to have it.  So of course the Doctors felt for sure it was other places in my body.

On hearing the news I emailed you to pray.  And standing on the word of God said that is the end of the problem.  I then proceeded to have all the tests done by the doctors.  There were many tests performed on me.  When all the test were completed and the results were in, I went to the cancer specialists for the results.

When I arrived for my appointment, the Doctor had a big smile on her face when she walked in.  I thought, "She is very happy today, I wonder why?"  But I said to Jesus, "that is how I am going to be, because I know that You have healed me."

The doctor started to read one test at a time including the results of the tests.  I just kept saying, "Thank you Jesus.  The miracle power is working like it did when Jesus was here and in the beginning of the Church.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.  Only believe - all things are possible.  Jesus has paid in full already for my miracle.

Thank you Pastor Max for your prayers.  May the Lord keep you and bless you as you serve Him in the great harvest field,

With Christian love,  Jo Moody

TOGETHER BY GRIEF
By Mary Cornelia Van Sant

When I was 14 years old, in a two-week period before Thanksgiving, my dad developed hepatitis and died.  It was a shock to all of us.  He had always been so healthy.  He'd only been sick once before and had bounced back quickly.

As one of eight children, I was usually lost in the crowd.  Now, however, adults sought me out to console me.  They told me how much I resembled my father and what a good man he had been.  There was an outpouring of love, visitors and food to our home.  To be honest, the months that followed his death were quite beautiful, in a weird way.  I had never felt so immersed in love.

At school, none of my friends knew what to say to me.  I did have one friend who came to see me at my house the day after my dad died.  She sat quietly beside me.  I now realize how much courage that must have taken.  Besides her, none of my other friends acknowledged my father's death.  They acted awkward around me.  It was a strange feeling.

Several months later, one of the cheerleaders in my class lost her father to a massive heart attack.  Usually, she was in the midst of a huge crowd.  She seemed alone most of the time now. I approached her tentatively one day during lunch.  "I think I know how you're feeling.  My dad died a few months ago," I told her.

I didn't know what to expect.  I was a little intimidated, to be honest.  I didn't mix with "her crowd" too easily.  They were all so good-looking and popular. Abby looked me squarely in the face.  Her eyes widened.  And then she seemed to relax.  We talked until the bell rang.

After that day, we chatted regularly.  Sometimes it felt like we were in our own little world.  We'd share stories and giggle about our dads.  It felt good to have a connection with my dad through our talks.  I cherished them.

The next school year a girl named Terry lost her dad.  Terry was kind of nerdy.  She was tall and skinny.  Not even "my crowd" had much to do with her.  Once again, I approached someone out of my need to have a bond with my father. "I heard your dad died.  My dad died last year," I told her.

Terry sighed, then gave me a description of her past week.  I listened to her every word.

As soon as I could find Abby, I told her about Terry.  Abby responded like I did.  It was as if we were on a deserted island, and we had caught sight of a shipwrecked victim floating toward us. 

We became a threesome.  Not in a social way - we didn't really hang out together - but we snatched a few moments at our lockers and in homeroom to share bits of our dads.  Just having someone who understood when we were going through a tough week was comforting.

I still have my yearbook in which Abby wrote, "Thanks for being my buddy.  I needed you." Occasionally, I hear from Terry.  I have continued to reach out to people who are in pain.  I've received comfort for myself, too, as a result of connecting with others.  Being able to reach out to others has returned blessings to me a hundredfold.  I thank my dad for this lasting and life-affirming gift.

FROM RAPIST

I am not going to be the one who let it die...I found in unbelievable.  Angels have walked beside me all my life and they still do.

As a young university student, Diane was home for the summer.  She had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year.

Diane ended up staying longer than she planned, and had to walk home alone. It was late and quite dark outside.  She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few block away.

As she walked under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger.  When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it.  However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her.  She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection.

Instantly, a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped around her and she felt as though someone was walking with her.  When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just 20 minutes after she had been there

Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep.  She thanked the Lord for her safety and asked Him to help this young woman.  She then decided to go to the police station.  She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them the story.

The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup of men to see if she could identify him.  Diane agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed.

The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her.  She asked if they would ask the man one question.

Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.  When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone.  She had two tall men walking on either side of her."

TO WAIT FOR ME!
Inspirational stories, true stories that are inspirational, real life miracle and inspirational stories to warm your heart and inspire you.  Inspirational Bible verses, inspirational thoughts, stories and people
By Heather McPherson, 12 years old

I remember my dad so well: the way he laughed, the way he smiled, the corny jokes he used to tell and that goofy look he put on his face to cheer me up. When I was growing up, my dad was in the Navy, first sailing, and then later working in the office.  I remember how his office was covered in cards that I had made him.

After my father retired from the Navy, I got to know him much better.  We did more things together, we talked more often and he'd always, always listen to everything I had to say.  I never guessed that those good times would come to such an abrupt end.

April 21, my dad sat down with me and told me something that changed my life forever.  He had terminal lung cancer.  When he told me, I felt hot and cold all over at the same time.  I couldn't move. I couldn't breathe.  I couldn't make a sound.  I just sat there, and we both began to cry.

Months went by with regular hospital visits, chemotherapy and radiation. My father looked better, but then started to get worse with each passing day.  I watched him, that strong, amazing, fearless man that I once knew, become weak, sick and tired.  As the weeks went on, he could no longer eat, and he was worse than ever before.  My mother had planned to bring him home to visit, but as December came, he became too sick to come home.

December 11 came.  My birthday.  We brought a cake to his room and he tried to sing happy birthday for me, then he called me over to his bed and kissed my forehead.  I tried to believe that everything would be all right.  That everything would go back to normal.

Two days later, I spent the night with my dad.  I sat by his bed and watched him sleep, and he looked so peaceful.  It was really hard for me to see him the way he was though, with IVs in his hands, and tubes all over. I cried myself to sleep every night after that.

On the night of December 20, I spent the night at my mum's friend's house. I lay awake that night, thinking about the next morning and, for some reason, fearing it.  Maybe I knew or maybe I had a sense that something was going to happen.  The next morning, she took me to the hospital and my mum was there.  I sat down on a chair in the lounge, and I overheard my mother talking to her friend.

"The nurses say that today is the day."  I felt exactly like I had eight months ago, a surge of hot and cold filling my body.  My grandparents were at the hospital too; my tiny grandmother was shaking, and my grandfather was talking to a nurse.  I didn't cry, though.  There were other patients in the room, and I didn't want to upset them.

I went to see my dad.  He looked so sick, so thin, but I held back my tears. I didn't want him to see me crying.  I walked over to his bed and I bent down and hugged him.  He whispered into my ear, "I love you," and kissed my forehead.  I hugged my dad, kissed his cheek and whispered, "I love you, too, Daddy."

I stayed with him in that room until the nurses told me that I should get something to eat.  My two sisters, my brother and my sister's boyfriend were waiting for me, so that we could all go out to lunch together.  We went across the road, and we were halfway through our lunch when my sister's cell phone rang.  I dreaded this phone call.  My sister, in tears, mumbled something to the caller and hung up.  "It's time."

We quickly paid the check and ran across the street.  There were cars coming, but we didn't care.  We wanted to see our father.  When we got there, my grandma was standing in the hall crying.  She told us that he was gone.  It was too late.  My sister collapsed on the floor and couldn't get back up.  I ran into my dad's room and saw his lifeless body, just lying there, motionless.  My mum was beside him, holding his hand and crying.  I didn't know what to do; I was so confused.  I just started crying and ran up to him. I hugged him and said, "Daddy, come back, come back," but he didn't.

We had a service for him on December 27.  My mum had put an announcement in the paper about his death, giving details about the service.  There were so many people there.  Most of them didn't talk; they just sat there and cried.  My godfather and my aunt both gave speeches, and both burst into tears when they finished.

To this day, almost six months after my father's death, I think about all those people crying for one man, for my father.  I think a lot about different things.  I think about how he isn't suffering anymore and how he is up in heaven with his grandparents smiling down at me. I think about how he won't be there for my graduation, and how he won't be able to walk me down the aisle at my wedding, but I also think about how he'll always be here for me - not in body, but in spirit - and how he'll forever be in my heart.
 
 If I could say one thing to him right now, and he would be able to hear it, it would be this . . . Daddy, don't forget to wait for me.

and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection

Atheists, atheist story TOMMY, true story of Atheist dying, touching Atheist story of meeting God, TOMMY boy dying was Atheist but met God. Atheist turns to God.2.  Know when to act without hesitation

A college professor, an avowed Atheist and active in the ACLU, was teaching his class.  He shocked several of his students when he flatly stated that once and for all he was going to prove there was no God.

Addressing the ceiling he shouted:

"GOD, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform.  I'll give you exactly 15 minutes !!!

The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop.  Ten minutes went by....

"I'm waiting GOD, if you're real, then knock me off this platform now !!! "

Again after 4 minutes, the professor taunted God, saying, 

"Here I am, God!!  I'm stilling waiting!!"

The professor was down to the last couple of minutes of his bargain with God.  A Navy Seal who had just been released from serving in Afghanistan and Iraq had recently registered in the class.  The Navy Seal walked up to the Professor.

The Seal hit the professor full force in the face, and sent the Professor tumbling from his lofty platform.  The Professor was out cold !!

The students were stunned and shocked.  The students began to babble in confusion.  The SEAL nonchalantly took his seat in the front row and sat silently.

The class looked at him and fell silent ... waiting.  Eventually, the professor came to and was noticeably shaken.  He looked at the SEAL in the front row.  When the Professor finally regained his senses and was able to speak, he asked:

"What the heck is the matter with you?  Why did you do that?

The SEAL looked and the professor and said, "God was really busy protecting America's soldiers, who are protecting your right to say stupid things and act like an idiot!!

SO HE SENT Me !

from Texas Bob's Page
http://texasbobsworld.com/tommy.htm

Tommy turned out to be the "atheist in residence" in my theology of faith course.

He constantly objected to, smirked at, or whined about the possibility of an unconditionally loving Father/God. We lived with each other in relative peace for one semester, although I admit he was for me at times a serious pain in the back pew.

When he came up at the end of the course to turn in his final exam, he asked in a cynical tone, "do you think I'll ever find God?"

I decided instantly on a little shock therapy. "No!" I said very emphatically.
"Why not?," He responded, "I thought that was the product you were pushing."

I let him get five steps from the classroom door and then called out, "Tommy! I don't think you'll ever find him, but I am absolutely certain that he will find you!"

Atheists, atheist story TOMMY, true story of Atheist dying, touching Atheist story of meeting God, TOMMY boy dying was Atheist but met God. Atheist turns to God.He shrugged a little and left my class and my life. I felt slightly disappointed at the thought that he had missed my clever line: "he will find you!" At least I thought it was clever.

Later, I heard that Tommy had graduated and I was duly grateful. Then a sad report came. I heard that Tommy had terminal cancer. Before I could search him out, he came to see me.

When he walked into my office, his body was very badly wasted and the long hair had all fallen out as a result of chemotherapy. But his eyes were bright and his voice was firm, for the first time, I believe.

"Tommy, I've thought about you so often--I hear you are sick", I blurted out.

"Oh, yes, very sick. I have cancer in both lungs. It's a matter of weeks."

"Can you talk about it, Tom?", I asked.

"Sure, what would you like to know?", He replied.

"What's it like to be only twenty-four and dying?", I asked.

"Well, it could be worse.", He replied.

"Like what?", I asked.

Atheists, atheist story TOMMY, true story of Atheist dying, touching Atheist story of meeting God, TOMMY boy dying was Atheist but met God. Atheist turns to God."Well, like being fifty and having no values or ideals; like being fifty and thinking that booze, seducing women, and making money are the real biggies' in life", He replied.

I began to look through my mental file cabinet under 's' where I had filed Tommy as strange. (It seems as though everybody I try to reject by classification, God sends back into my life to educate me.)

But what I really came to see you about", Tom said, "is something you said to me on the last day of class."

(He remembered!) He continued, "I asked you if you thought I would ever find God and you said, 'no!' Which surprised me. 

Then you said, 'but he will find you.' 

I thought about that a lot, even though my search for God was hardly intense at that time."

(My clever line. He thought about that a lot!)

"But when the doctors removed a lump from my groin and told me that it was malignant, that's when I got serious about locating God. 

And when the malignancy spread into my vital organs, I really began banging bloody fists against the bronze doors of heaven. 

But God did not come out. In fact, nothing happened.

Did you ever try anything for a long time with great effort and with no success? 

You get psychologically glutted, fed up with trying. And then you quit."

Atheists, atheist story TOMMY, true story of Atheist dying, touching Atheist story of meeting God, TOMMY boy dying was Atheist but met God. Atheist turns to God."Well, one day I woke up, and instead of throwing a few more futile appeals over that high brick wall to a God who may be or may not be there, I just quit.

I decided that I didn't really care about God, about an after life, or anything like that.

I decided to spend what time I had left doing something more profitable. 

I thought about you and your class and I remembered something else you had said:" "the essential sadness is to go through life without loving. But it would be almost equally sad to go through life and leave this world without ever telling those you loved that you had loved them.'" 

"So, I began with the hardest one, my Dad.

He was reading the newspaper when I approached him.

"Dad."

"Yes, what?", He asked without lowering the newspaper.

"Dad, I would like to talk with you."

"Well, talk."

"I mean... It's really important".

The newspaper came down three slow inches.

"What is it?"

Atheists, atheist story TOMMY, true story of Atheist dying, touching Atheist story of meeting God, TOMMY boy dying was Atheist but met God. Atheist turns to God."Dad, I love you--I just wanted you to know that." 

Tom smiled at me and said it with obvious satisfaction, as though he felt a warm and secret joy flowing inside of him. 

"The newspaper fluttered to the floor. Then my father did two things I could never remember him ever doing before.

He cried and he hugged me. We talked all night, even though he had to go to work the next morning. 

It felt so good to be close to my father, to see his tears, to feel his hug, to hear him say that he loved me."

"It was easier with my mother and little brother. They cried with me, too, and we hugged each other, and started saying real nice things to each other. 

We shared the things we had been keeping secret for so many years. I was only sorry about one thing --- that I had waited so long.

Here I was, just beginning to open up to all the people I had actually been close to."

"Then, one day I turned around and God was there.

He didn't come to me when I pleaded with him. I guess I was like an animal trainer holding out a hoop:" 'c'mon, jump through. C'mon, I'll give you three days, three weeks.'

"Apparently God does things in his own way and at his own hour.

But the important thing is that he was there. He found me!  You were right. He found me even after I stopped looking for him."

"Tommy", I practically gasped: "I think you are saying something very important and much more universal than you realize.

To me, at least, you are saying that the surest way to find God is not to make him a private possession, a problem solver, or an instant consolation in time of need, but rather by opening to love.

You know, the Apostle John said that. He said:  "God is love, and anyone who lives in love is living with God and God is living in him.'"

"Tom, could I ask you a favor?

You know, when I had you in class you were a real pain.   But (laughingly) you can make it all up to me now.

Would you come into my present theology of faith course and tell them what you have just told me? 

If I told them the same thing it wouldn't be half as effective as if you were to tell it."

"Ooh I was ready for you, but I don't know if I'm ready for your class."

"Tom, think about it if and when you are ready, give me a call."

In a few days, Tom called, said he was ready for the class, that he wanted to do that for God and for me. So we scheduled a date.

However, he never made it. He had another appointment, far more important than the one with me and my class.

Of course, his life was not really ended by his death, only changed.

He made the great step from faith into vision. He found a life far more beautiful than the eye of man has ever seen or the ear of man has ever heard or the mind of man has ever imagined.

Before he died, we talked one last time.

"I'm not going to make it to your class", he said.

"I know, Tom."

Inspirational stories, true stories that are inspirational, real life miracle and inspirational stories to warm your heart and inspire you.  Inspirational Bible verses, inspirational thoughts, stories and peopleTHE 'Birdies' ANGELS came to 
take our 3 year old son to Heaven

When I got off the plane a solemn-faced young man came toward me and said, "Mr. Glenn, there is an emergency at your home. I do not know what the emergency is, or who is involved, but I will take you to the phone so you can call the hospital."  My heart was now pounding, but the will to be calm took over.  Woodenly, I followed this stranger to the distant telephone where I called the number he gave me for the Mission Hospital. 

My call was put through to the trauma center where I learned that my three-year-old son had been trapped underneath the automatic garage door for several minutes, and that when my wife had found him he was dead.

CPR had been performed by a neighbor, who is a doctor, and the paramedics had continued the treatment as Brian was transported to the hospital. By the time of my call, Brian was revived and they believed he would live, but they did not know how much damage had been done to his brain, nor to his heart. They explained that the door had completely closed on his little sternum right over his heart. He had been severely crushed. After speaking with the medical staff, my wife sounded worried but not hysterical, and I took comfort in her calmness.

The return flight seemed to last forever, but finally I arrived at the hospital six hours after the garage door had come down. When I walked into the intensive care unit, nothing could have prepared me to see my little son laying so still on a great big bed with tubes and monitors everywhere. 

He was on a respirator. I glanced at my wife who stood and tried to give me a reassuring smile. It all seemed like a terrible dream. 

I was filled-in with the details and given a guarded prognosis.  Brian was going to live, and the preliminary tests indicated that his heart was OK, two miracles in and of themselves. But only time would tell if his brain received any damage.

Throughout the seemingly endless hours, my wife was calm. She felt that Brian would eventually be all right. I hung on to her words and faith like a lifeline. 

All that night and the next day Brian remained unconscious. It seemed like forever since I had left for my business trip the day before. Finally at two o'clock that afternoon, our son regained consciousness and sat up uttering the most beautiful words I have ever heard spoken. He said, "Daddy hold me" and he reached for me with his little arms.

By the next day he was pronounced as having no neurological or physical deficits, and the story of his miraculous survival spread throughout the hospital. You can imagine how relieved we felt as we brought Brian home.  We also felt a unique reverence for the life and love of our Heavenly Father that comes to those who brush death so closely.

In the days that followed there was a special spirit about our home.  Our two older children were much closer to their little brother. 

My wife and I were much closer to each other, and all of us were very close as a whole family. Life took on a less stressful pace. Perspective seemed to be more focused, and balance much easier to gain and maintain. We felt deeply blessed. Our gratitude was truly profound.

Almost a month later to the day of the accident, Brian awoke from his afternoon nap and said, "Sit down Mommy. I have something to tell you." At this time in his life, Brian usually spoke in small phrases, so to say a large sentence surprised my wife. She sat down with him on his bed, and he began his sacred and remarkable story.

Do you remember when I got stuck under the garage door? Well, it was so heavy and it hurt really bad. I called to you, but you couldn't hear me. I started to cry, but then it hurt too bad. And then the 'birdies' came."

"The birdies?" my wife asked puzzled.
"Yes," he replied. "The birdies made a whooshing sound and flew into the garage. They took care of me."

"They did?"

"Yes," he said. "One of the birdies came and got you. She came to tell you "I got stuck under the door." A sweet reverent feeling filled the room. The spirit was so strong and yet lighter than air. 

My wife realized that a 3 year old had no concept of death and spirits, so he was referring to the beings who came to him from beyond as "birdies" because they were up in the air like birds that fly. "What did the birdies look like?" she asked.

Brian answered, "They were so beautiful. They were dressed in white, all white. Some of them had green and white. But some of them had on just white."

"Did they say anything?"
"Yes," he answered. "They told me the baby would be all right." "The baby?" my wife asked confused.

Brian answered. "The baby laying on the garage floor." He went on, "You came out and opened the garage door and ran to the baby. You told the baby to stay and not leave."

My wife nearly collapsed upon hearing this, for she had indeed gone and knelt beside Brian's body and seeing his crushed chest whispered, "Don't leave us Brian, please stay if you can." 

As she listened to Brian telling her the words she had spoken, she realized that the spirit had left His body and was looking down from above on this little lifeless form. "Then what happened?" she asked.

"We went on a trip," he said, "far, far away." He grew agitated trying to say the things he didn't seem to have the words for. My wife tried to calm and comfort him, and let him know it would be okay. He struggled with wanting to tell something that obviously was very important to him, but finding the words was difficult.

"We flew so fast up in the air. They're so pretty Mommy," he added. "And there are lots and lots of birdies." My wife was stunned. Into her mind the sweet comforting spirit enveloped her more soundly, but with an urgency she had never before known. 

Brian went on to tell her that the "birdies" had told him that he had to come back and tell everyone about the "birdies." He said they brought him back to the house and that a big fire truck, and an ambulance were there. A man was bringing the baby out on a white bed and he tried to tell the man that the baby would be okay,

The story went on for an hour. He taught us that "birdies" were always with us, but we don't see them because we look with our eyes and we don't hear them because we listen with our ears. 

But they are always there, you can only see them in here (he put his hand over his heart). They whisper the things to help us to do what is right because they love us so much. 

Brian continued, stating, "I have a plan, Mommy. You have a plan. Daddy has a plan. Everyone has a plan. We must all live our plan and keep our promises. The birdies help us to do that cause they love us so much." 

In the weeks that followed, he often came to us and told all, or part of it, again and again. Always the story remained the same. The details were never changed or out of order. 

A few times he added further bits of information and clarified the message he had already delivered. It never ceased to amaze us how he could tell such detail and speak beyond his ability when he talked about his birdies.

Everywhere he went, he told strangers about the "birdies." Surprisingly, no one ever looked at him strangely when he did this. Rather, they always got a softened look on their face and smiled. Needles to say, we have not been the same ever since that day, and I pray we never will be.

Luke 4:10  (kjv)  For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
NIV:  For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully;

TO WAIT FOR ME!
Inspirational stories, true stories that are inspirational, real life miracle and inspirational stories to warm your heart and inspire you.  Inspirational Bible verses, inspirational thoughts, stories and people
By Heather McPherson, 12 years old

I remember my dad so well: the way he laughed, the way he smiled, the corny jokes he used to tell and that goofy look he put on his face to cheer me up. When I was growing up, my dad was in the Navy, first sailing, and then later working in the office.  I remember how his office was covered in cards that I had made him.

After my father retired from the Navy, I got to know him much better.  We did more things together, we talked more often and he'd always, always listen to everything I had to say.  I never guessed that those good times would come to such an abrupt end.

April 21, my dad sat down with me and told me something that changed my life forever.  He had terminal lung cancer.  When he told me, I felt hot and cold all over at the same time.  I couldn't move. I couldn't breathe.  I couldn't make a sound.  I just sat there, and we both began to cry.

Months went by with regular hospital visits, chemotherapy and radiation. My father looked better, but then started to get worse with each passing day.  I watched him, that strong, amazing, fearless man that I once knew, become weak, sick and tired.  As the weeks went on, he could no longer eat, and he was worse than ever before.  My mother had planned to bring him home to visit, but as December came, he became too sick to come home.

December 11 came.  My birthday.  We brought a cake to his room and he tried to sing happy birthday for me, then he called me over to his bed and kissed my forehead.  I tried to believe that everything would be all right.  That everything would go back to normal.

Two days later, I spent the night with my dad.  I sat by his bed and watched him sleep, and he looked so peaceful.  It was really hard for me to see him the way he was though, with IVs in his hands, and tubes all over. I cried myself to sleep every night after that.

On the night of December 20, I spent the night at my mum's friend's house. I lay awake that night, thinking about the next morning and, for some reason, fearing it.  Maybe I knew or maybe I had a sense that something was going to happen.  The next morning, she took me to the hospital and my mum was there.  I sat down on a chair in the lounge, and I overheard my mother talking to her friend.

"The nurses say that today is the day."  I felt exactly like I had eight months ago, a surge of hot and cold filling my body.  My grandparents were at the hospital too; my tiny grandmother was shaking, and my grandfather was talking to a nurse.  I didn't cry, though.  There were other patients in the room, and I didn't want to upset them.

I went to see my dad.  He looked so sick, so thin, but I held back my tears. I didn't want him to see me crying.  I walked over to his bed and I bent down and hugged him.  He whispered into my ear, "I love you," and kissed my forehead.  I hugged my dad, kissed his cheek and whispered, "I love you, too, Daddy."

I stayed with him in that room until the nurses told me that I should get something to eat.  My two sisters, my brother and my sister's boyfriend were waiting for me, so that we could all go out to lunch together.  We went across the road, and we were halfway through our lunch when my sister's cell phone rang.  I dreaded this phone call.  My sister, in tears, mumbled something to the caller and hung up.  "It's time."

We quickly paid the check and ran across the street.  There were cars coming, but we didn't care.  We wanted to see our father.  When we got there, my grandma was standing in the hall crying.  She told us that he was gone.  It was too late.  My sister collapsed on the floor and couldn't get back up.  I ran into my dad's room and saw his lifeless body, just lying there, motionless.  My mum was beside him, holding his hand and crying.  I didn't know what to do; I was so confused.  I just started crying and ran up to him. I hugged him and said, "Daddy, come back, come back," but he didn't.

We had a service for him on December 27.  My mum had put an announcement in the paper about his death, giving details about the service.  There were so many people there.  Most of them didn't talk; they just sat there and cried.  My godfather and my aunt both gave speeches, and both burst into tears when they finished.

To this day, almost six months after my father's death, I think about all those people crying for one man, for my father.  I think a lot about different things.  I think about how he isn't suffering anymore and how he is up in heaven with his grandparents smiling down at me. I think about how he won't be there for my graduation, and how he won't be able to walk me down the aisle at my wedding, but I also think about how he'll always be here for me - not in body, but in spirit - and how he'll forever be in my heart.
 
 If I could say one thing to him right now, and he would be able to hear it, it would be this . . . Daddy, don't forget to wait for me.

Hebrews 12:9 -   Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, 
and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection 
unto the Father of spirits, and live

Every Sunday afternoon, after the morning service at their church, the Pastor and his eleven-year-old son would go out into their town and hand out Gospel Tracts. 

This particular Sunday afternoon, as it came time for the Pastor and his son to go to the streets with their tracts, it was very cold outside as well as pouring down rain. 

The boy bundled up in his warmest and driest clothes and said; "OK dad, I'm ready." His Pastor dad asked, "Ready for what?" "Dad, it's time we gather our tracts together and go out." Dad responds, "Son, it's very cold outside and it's pouring down rain."

The boy gives his dad a surprised look, asking "But Dad, aren't people still going to Hell, even though it's raining?" Dad answers, "Son, I am not going out in this weather." Despondently, the boy ask, "Dad, can I go? Please?"

His father hesitated for a moment then said, "Son, you can go. H ere are the tracts, be careful son." "Thanks Dad!" And with that, he was off and out
into the rain.

This eleven-year-old boy walked the streets of the town going door to door and handing everybody he met in the street a Gospel Tract. 

After two hours of walking in the rain, he was soaking, bone-chilled wet and down to his VERY LAST TRACT.

He stopped on a corner and looked for someone to hand a tract to, but the streets were totally deserted. Then he turned toward the first home he saw and started up the sidewalk to the front door and rang the doorbell. 

He rang the bell, but nobody answered. He rang it again and again, but still no one answered. He waited but still no answer. 

Finally, this eleven-year-old trooper turned to leave, but something stopped him. Again, he turned to the door and rang the bell and knocked loudly on the door with his fist. He waited, something holding him there on the front porch. He rang again, and this ti me the door slowly opened. Standing in the doorway was a very sad- looking elderly lady.

She softly asked "What can I do for you son?" With radiant eyes and a smile that lit up her world, this little boy said, "Ma'am, I'm sorry if I disturbed you, but I just want to tell you that JESUS REALLY DOES LOVE YOU, and I came to give you my very last Gospel Tract which will tell you all about JESUS and His great LOVE." 

With that, he handed her his last tract, and turned to leave. She called to him as he departed. "Thank you, son! And God Bless You!"

Well, the following Sunday morning in church Pastor Dad was in the pulpit. As the service began, he asked, "Does anybody have a testimony or want to say anything?" 

Slowly, in the back row of the church, an elderly lady stood to her feet. As she began to speak, a look of glorious radiance came from her face, "No one in this church knows me. I've never been here before. 

You see, before last Sunday I was not a Christian. My husband passed on some time ago, leaving me totally alone in this world. 

Last Sunday, being a particularly cold and rainy day, it was even more so in my heart that I came to the end of the line where I no longer had any hope or will to live. 

So I took a rope and a chair and ascended the stairway into the attic of my home. I fastened the rope securely to a rafter in the roof, then stood on the chair and fastened the other end of the rope around my neck.

Inspirational stories, true stories that are inspirational, real life miracle and inspirational stories to warm your heart and inspire you.  Inspirational Bible verses, inspirational thoughts, stories and peopleStanding on that chair, so lonely and broken hearted I was about to leap off, when suddenly the loud ringing of my doorbell downstairs startled me. I thought, I'll wait a minute, and whoever it is will go away.

"I waited and waited, but the ringing doorbell seemed to get louder and more insistent, and then the person ringing also started knocking loudly.

I thought to myself again, "Who on earth could this be?! Nobody ever rings my bell or comes to see me."

I loosened the rope from my neck and started for the front door, all the while the bell ran g louder and louder 

When I opened the door and looked I could hardly believe my eyes, for there on my front porch was the most radiant and angelic little boy I had ever seen in my life. 

His SMILE, oh, I could never describe it to you! And the words that came from his mouth caused my heart that had long been dead, TO LEAP TO LIFE as he exclaimed with a cherub-like voice, "Ma'am, I just came to tell you that JESUS REALLY DOES LOVE YOU.

Then he gave me this Gospel Tract that I now hold in my hand. As the little angel disappeared back out into the cold and rain, I closed my door and read slowly every word of this Gospel Tract. 

Then I went up to my attic to get my rope and chair. I wouldn't be needing them any more. You see, "I am now a Happy Child of the KING and since the address of your church was on the back of this Gospel Tract, I have come here to personally say THANK YOU TO God's little angel who came just in the nick of time and, by so doing, spared my soul from eternity in hell."

There was not a dry eye in the church. And as shouts of praise and honor to THE KING resounded off the very rafters of the building, Pastor Dad
descended from the pulpit to the front pew where the little angel was seated. 

He took his son in his arms and sobbed uncontrollably. Probably no church has had a more glorious moment, And probably this universe has never seen a Papa that was more filled with love & honor for his son...Except for One. 

This Father also allowed His Son to go out into a cold and dark world. He received His Son back with joy unspeakable, and as all of heaven shouted praises and honor to The King, The Father sat His beloved Son on a throne far above all principality and power and every name that is named.

James 1:27 - Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.


TRANSFORMED
from 
Atheist & Alcoholic to 
GOSPEL PREACHER
by:  Terry Severson

Cat stories, amazing cat stories, Smokey the Life saving cat, true life miracle cat story. Smokey the cat saved our children's lives. Inspirational stories, true amazing stories about angels, cats, people that are inspirational, inspirational thoughtsI WAS AN ATHEIST & ALCOHOLIC! 

Jesus saved me, Jesus filled me with The Holy Spirit & I'M NOW PREACHING THE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ.

The day is Wednesday, September 15, 2004.  I am sitting reflecting back to September 15, 1991, the day that Jesus Christ came into my life and set me free.  The day that the Lord saved me from myself and from an eternity in hell.

My name is Terry Severson.  I am from Norquay, Saskatchewan.  For 29 years of my life I was separated from God.  I was a professing atheist, someone who says there is no God.  I had never seen any evidence of God and our school system teaches evolution, which is godlessness.  We teach our children in Canada that there is no God.

I ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AT LEAST FIVE TIMES

As a young boy of 14 years of age, I started drinking, which lead to numerous problems.  I made at least five suicide attempts from which God delivered me every time.

I did not know until many years later that it had been God who had saved me from killing myself each of the five times I attempted to kill myself.

At the age of 19, I met Shelleu Schow and God used her to take the desire of killing myself away from me.  I still had  major problems such as alcoholism, a foul dirty mouth and many other problems.  Sin had me bound and I did not know how to get free.  Deep inside I knew that something  was missing from my life.

Norquay, Saskatchewan is the home town of Pastor Max Solbrekken.  Pastor Solbrekken is a powerful man of God who has proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus all over the world.

In Norquay, not much is known about Pastor Max Solbrekken or his ministry ( a prophet has honour except in his hometown and amongst relatives), but that is about to change !

In John 4:43-45, we find Jesus going back to Galilee where He was first rejected, but this time they received him after they had seen all the great things that Jesus Christ did.

I believe a day is coming when God will move powerfully in Norquay,  Saskatchewan and Pastor Max will be used mightily by our Lord.

In 1987, we were still heathen.  I was still mocking God when my wife and I rented a house which was owned by Max Solbrekken's dad who had passed away.  We were the first ones to rent his house and people would say, "Someday, Terry, you will be a preacher like Max Solbrekken.  I used to swear at people and tell them to get lost.

My wife even told me, "One day, Terry, you will carry a Bible and be a preacher like Max Solbrekken."  I couldn't believe my ears.  I thought my wife was loosing her mind.

But shortly after we moved into that house, I quit drinking, and nine months later, I quit smoking.  I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day.  It was the mercy of the Lord that was dealing with me, even though I was unaware of it.  Even before I knew the Lord, He was doing a work within me.

September 15, 1991, I heard the message of salvation in Regina, Saskatchewan.  Jesus Christ set me free from sin that day.  I have never been the am since that day.  There  was no looking back.  There was no going back.  I really had nothing to go back to.

I am now an Evangelist, a preacher just like Pastor Max Solbrekken.  The prophecy came true, much to my surprise.

I have a passion for Jesus Christ.  I have a passion for the lost souls in this world.  Many people in the world do not know about Jesus Christ.  I want to see hell empty and Heaven full. 

The church must rise and let the world know about Jesus Christ.  I am so thankful for what the Lord has done in my life and I want to share the gift of eternal life with all I come in contact with (Psalm 40 - 1-3)

Pastor Max Solbrekken, greetings from Norquay.  I am sending you my testimony.  May the name of the Lord be glorified amongst all people.

Love in Christ
Terry Severson

#1 - JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU

No more beautiful words were ever spoken by men or angels than these, "I know God loves me!"  Praise God. Say these precious words and believe them and you will see what a change will be affected within your life.

#2 - JESUS CHRIST KNOWS ALL ABOUT YOU

"For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him." (2 Chronicles 16:9)

"Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, just to take Him at His word, Just to rest upon His promise, Just to know, Thus saith the Lord."

In every situation of life God knows about you!  During every trial, heartbreak and discouragement in the temptations and struggles of life Jesus knows about us and makes a way of escape. (1 Corinthians 10:13)  God knows and He is ready to help - Say it to yourself, "God knows about my existence and He loves me - His eyes are upon me and I know everything will be alright."

#3 - JESUS CHRIST CARES ABOUT YOU

"Casting all your cares upon Him, for He careth for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

Life often seems like a rat race with dog eat dog and whoever gets in first get what he needs and whoever gets in last misses everything.  People can often be hardhearted and cruel - circumstances and situations can make life almost unbearable.  Many times Satan has filled peoples' hearts and minds with such tremendous disillusionment and depression that they have in utter hopelessness taken their own lives.

The hymn writer penned the words, "What a Friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and grief's to bear!  What a privilege to carry - Everything to God in prayer."

I am thrilled with the great news of God's love every time I hear it.  I am thrilled that God loves me, He knows all about me and that He cares about me - my difficulties and my needs.  Praise God!  Say it to yourself - "I know God cares about me and will help me!"

#4 - JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR YOU

"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.  No wonder the Apostle John wrote, "We love Him because He first loved us."  There is a word that is seldom used in today's world but one which is probably one of the most powerful in our vocabulary.  It is the word "Apodictic" and it means "Evident beyond contradictions".  It is one of my foremost words because it relates to the gospel and to Christ our wonderful Lord.  When you speak about God, His power, His words, His promises, His grace, His goodness and His mercy and love, the word Apodictic covers them all!

Evident beyond Contradiction!  His existence is so real that only a foolish person could try to contradict the fact!  No wonder the Bible says, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God". (Psalm 14:1)

Jesus, who is Jesus, life of Jesus, Jesus Christ scriptures messagesNO. 5 ~ JESUS CHRIST AROSE FROM THE DEAD AND WILL HELP YOU TODAY

A dead man has no power to help anyone - He cannot even help himself! That is why so many traditional churches and nominal Christians receive no answers to their prayers and have no victory in their lives. They believe in and worship a dead Christ. They wear crucifixes that have a resemblance of Christ, dead on the cross. Beloved friends, the cross is empty - Jesus Christ is alive for evermore with all power at His disposal.

He has the power to set His children free from every bondage and situation in which we find ourselves that is embarrassing, improper, humiliating and painful.

“Lo behold the man of sorrow, lo behold Him in plain view. There He stands that mighty conqueror, since He rent the veil in two."

“I serve a risen Saviour, He’s in the world today; I know that He is living, whatever men may say; I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer and just the time I need Him, He’s always near. He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today. He walks with me and talks with me, along life’s narrow way. You ask me how I know He lives, He lives within my heart.” Hallelujah.

The very essence of Christianity, the heart of the gospel and the foundation truth of the church is that Jesus Christ, God’s Son died upon a cross for our sins and that He was raised from the dead on the third day for our Justification! (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

Of all religions only Christianity can boast a resurrection and only Christ is a Saviour, for He only is Alive Forevermore. Praise His Name.

No wonder Peter said, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”. (Acts 4:12)

Why? Because the name of a dead man can save no one but Jesus is not dead HE IS ALIVE FOREVERMORE! Hallelujah. His entire ministry while upon this earth revolved around preaching the gospel, healing the sick, forgiving the sinful, restoring the diseased back to health, feeding the hungry and raising the dead. 

When He was crucified His ministry came to an end abruptly - until 50 days later - after He had risen from the dead and spent 40 days with His disciples He ascended into heaven and poured out upon His followers the “Baptism of the Holy Ghost.” (Acts 1:4-8; 2:1-4) Then His ministry continued greater than ever through those who believed upon Him - The blind saw, the deaf heard, the lame walked, the dead were raised and the gospel was preached to multitudes.

“Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. 

And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping and praising God.” (Acts 3:1-9)

“And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch. And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them. And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)

“Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.” (Acts 5:12-16)

Jesus, who is Jesus, life of Jesus, Jesus Christ scriptures messagesTHE GREAT COMMISSION

It is evident the Book of Acts is a continuation of the ministry of Jesus Christ through His followers by the power of the Holy Spirit, and that it is God’s will for His power to continue to bring blessing and healing to His people in every generation until the church age is over and Christ sets up His kingdom and ushers in the millennium - 

Notice His words to all who believe, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe, In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”. (Mark 16:15-18)

The Holy Bible says, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” (Acts 2:38-39)

If you are called, you are saved and if you are saved, the baptism of the Holy Ghost and power is for you! Again see what St. James writes to the church, “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him”. (James 5:14,15)

Now in closing let us see what Jesus Himself said concerning praying and receiving an answer....

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” (Matthew 7:7,8)

“Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it.” (John 14:11-14)

“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23)

“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19)

“If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7)

My beloved friend, Jesus Christ is indeed alive and waiting to hear from you. If you will accept Him as your personal Saviour and trust in Him you will definitely receive answers to your prayers and the assurance that all is well with your soul, for He has promised and guaranteed you that His word is true and the scripture cannot be broken. (John 10:35)

Amen.
