We were barreling down a mountainside in a storm,
When I made a discovery that would change my life.
With no windshield wipers to help us see our way,
I learned that prayer works in the times of strife.
I was the only one who supposedly believed in God,
And my friends screamed and one started to cry.
I didn’t even know if prayes were heard by God,
But, we were near dying, so I had to at least try.
I closed my eyes and I spoke words from my heart,
“O Lord, only you can make the windshield wipers work”.
Suddenly, those old wipers started moving, just in time,
Euphoric, my doubtful friends and I nearly went berserk.
We made it down off the mountain, with our lives intact.
Amazingly, those windshield wipers never worked again.
But, I discovered that night that God’s promises are real,
“Lo, I am with you always” is true. Amen and Amen!
Written for the Sunday Writing Prompt from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. The prompt is to write on Discovery. This was a true story. When those wipers started to work, we were on the edge of the mountain, about to plunge to our deaths. I have always wondered if my two friends became believers in God after that night, but I didn’t see them again after college. Word of the Day Challenge is Euphoric.
Wow! That’s a great story of an answered prayer.
