ONE PRAYER AWAY FROM A MIRACLE {Note: This story originally appeared in the ´King·s Daily Bedtime Storiesµ Series before it was acquired by ´The Christian Book Company.µ}

Once upon a time in a place called LA, there lived a young boy named Elvis. Elvis was diagnosed with cancer. The doctors said there was nothing they could do about it. Elvis got on his knees to pray. He prayed for days but nothing happened, so Elvis gave up praying and started waiting for death to come take him away. Elvis died the evening he stopped praying and within a blink of an eye he found himself standing before angels and the saints in paradise. The angels told him that he was found righteous, that he has nothing to worry about for he would not be burning in the fires of hell. Just then one of the angels made a side remark that Elvis was wonderful person and that he still had much to accomplish on earth. When Elvis heard it, he was shocked. He asked why when did God allow him to die before he accomplished all the beautiful things that God had predestined for him to accomplish. The angel said it was because he stopped praying, that from the first day he started praying, God dispatched some angels to answer his prayers but the principalities and rulers of the darkness of this world with stood the angels. The principalities did all they could to stop Elvis but couldn·t until he stopped praying.

The Angel said that if Elvis prayed a little more he would have survived. He was just one prayer away from a miracle. So when we pray for something. We should never give up and it would come to pass.



PRAYER OF SALVATION: If you·ve been touched by what you just read and you·ve never given your heart to Jesus before but now want to become a Christian, please say this prayer and mean it with all your heart. ´Oh Lord God, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ. Your word says, ¶« whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved· (Acts 2:21) So now I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be the lord of my life. I receive eternal life into my spirit and according to Romans 10: 9, ¶That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved· , Therefore I declare that I am saved; I am born ² again; I am a child of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! (1 John 4:4). I now walk in the consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!µ

PRAYER FOR THE RETURNING BACK SLIDER (ONLY): ´Oh lord God, I ask for your mercy and forgiveness for turning my back on you. I come back to you today in total sincerity and like the parable of the prodigal son, I thank you for receiving me back with Joy and Gladness. I confess that Jesus Christ is the lord of my life and God the father is my Daddy. Hallelujah!µ

PRAYER TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT: ´Oh Father, I thank you now for making me born again. For making me your child. I ask that you give me your Holy Spirit to live in me and with me. For your word says that you would freely give the Holy Spirit to all those who ask. I open my heart and receive, and I know by faith that you have given me your Holy Spirit. Thank you Father. In Jesus name. Amen.µ
