God's Protection and Intervention
I believe in the power of prayer. Every day I try to place my children and grandchildren under God’s Dominion and Protection. Recently there were two incidents involving my daughter and family within less than 24 hours that could have had dire effects, except for Divine Intervention.
The first was when she and her husband left by car for a vacation with their 3 month old and 3 year old children. They were driving on the thruway at night and encountered a major rain and lightening storm. They were in the passing lane at the time and suddenly a car came down the ramp at a high speed onto the thruway and did not yield. An eighteen wheeler that was driving in that lane moved over quickly to try and avoid hitting the oncoming car. The truck driver obviously did not see my daughter’s car and was literally 3 to 4 inches away from crashing into them. My son-in-law immediately went off into the median to avoid getting hit. Thank God there were no barriers or fences. My daughter said, “Mom I truly believe that I felt God’s arms wrap around our car.”
The second incidence took place the next day. When my daughter called and asked if I could turn on some lights in their house. I said I would get over in the early afternoon to do that. I had one delay after another as well as going over and forgetting the key to their house. I finally got there at 9:30 at night to discover there was no electricity. The electric company had shut off their power around 5 o’clock P.M. that day because of some mix up with the bill.
My daughter has a special needs baby that cannot nurse but needs mother’s milk. She pumps 6 hours a day every day and had over 300 bags of breastmilk in the freezer. If I had gone over in the afternoon to turn the lights on I would have never of known the electricity would be shut off after I had left and all the milk would have been ruined. We did get the electricity turned back on that night and we all thanked God once again for His loving protection and Divine Intervention.
