The Power of Prayer

An email that was sent to me from a friend...


Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face,
walked into a grocery store.

She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if
he would let her charge a few groceries.

She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they
had seven children and they needed food.

John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his
store at once.

Visualizing the family needs, she said: 'Please, sir! I will bring you the
money just as soon as I can.'

John told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge
account at his store..

Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation
between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he
would stand good for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in
a very reluctant voice, 'Do you have a grocery list?'

Louise replied, 'Yes sir.' 'O.K' he said, 'put your grocery list on the
scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in

Louise hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse
and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid
the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales
went down and stayed down.

The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said
begrudgingly, 'I can't believe it.'

The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the
other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued=2 0to
put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.

The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of
paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.

It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:

'Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.'

The grocer gave her the groceries that he had
gathered and stood in stunned silence.

Louise thanked him and left the store. The other customer handed a
fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said; 'It was worth every penny of it.
Only God Knows how much a prayer weighs.'

THE POWER: When you receive this, say a prayer. That's all you have to do.

Just stop right now, and say a prayer of thanks for your own good fortune.
Then please send this to all your friends and relatives.

I believe if you will send this testimony out with prayer in faith, you will
receive what you need God to do in your and your families' life .

So dear heart, trust God to heal the sick, provide food for the hungry,
clothes and shelter for those that don't have as we do.. Amen & Amen

Don't break this, please!
Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive.

There is no cost but a lot of rewards.
May you always walk with Angels
God Bless!

Three things will happen to you this coming week:

(1) You will find favor with someone you don't expect;

(2) You will be too relevant to be ignored;

(3) You will encounter God and you will never remain the same, Amen.

My prayer for you today:

The eyes beholding this message shall not behold evil, the hands that will
send this message to others shall not labor in vain, the mouth saying Amen
to this prayer shall laugh forever. Remain in God's love as you send this
prayer to everybody on your list. Have a lovely journey of life! Trust in
the Lord with all your heart and He will never fail you because He is

If you truly need a blessing, continue reading this email:

Heavenly Father, most Gracious and Loving God, I pray to you that you
abundantly bless my family and me. I know that you recognize, that a family
is more than just a mother, father, sister, brother, husband and wife, but
all who believe and trust in you. Father, I send up a prayer request for
blessings for not only the person who sent this to me, but for me and all
that I have forwarded this message on to. And that the power of joined
prayer by those who believe and trust in you is more powerful than anything.
I thank you in advance for your blessings.

Father God, deliver the person reading this right now from debt and debt
burdens. Release your Godly wisdom that I may be a good steward over all
that You have given me Father, for I know how wonderful and mighty you are
and how if we just obey you and walk in your word and have the faith of a
mustard seed that you will pour out blessings. I thank you now Lord for the
recent blessings I have received and for the blessings yet to come because I
know you are not done with me yet. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen

TAKE 60 SECONDS and send this on quickly and with in hours, you will have
caused a multitude of people to pray to God for each other. Then sit back
and watch the power of God work in your life for doing the thing that you
know He loves. Remain Blessed!!!

Peace and Blessings...
