Pastor Robert Morris of Gateway Church in Texas tells a most remarkable testimony of God’s unfailing Love. He shares how he was in a prophetic presbytery meeting with fellow pastor Clark Whitten and there was an older lady there. Suddenly he received a word for her: “You are going to teach younger ladies how to pray for their unbelieving husbands to come to Christ.” After the prophesy the congregation started clapping; they clapped because they knew the lady’s story. After the service, the pastor (Clark Whitten), said, “I want her to come tell you why everyone knew what you were saying was true.” So she came up and here’s her story.
She’d been married to her husband for 42 years, but he was a unbeliever. She had prayed for him every day for 42 years to come to Christ. He was on a business trip in Florida when he was killed in a car accident. About a month after he was killed her phone rang, and the man on the phone said, “Is so and so there?”, and asked for her husband, and she said no, I’m sorry to tell you he has past away, he died in a car accident about a month ago in Florida. And the man went kind of quiet and then he asked, “Was it on such and such a date?” “Yes, it was,” she replied. He said, “did you get to talk to him that day?” She said, “No I did not, he would always call me at night when he got to his hotel room.” The man then said, “Ma’am I have good news for you.”
He said, “I’m a businessman, I wear a suit and tie to work, I work downtown in an office building, and God would not leave me alone that morning. God spoke to me to go out to the highway and park my car and put my thumb out. And your husband came by, and I shared Christ with your husband and your husband accepted Christ before he was killed in that car accident.” Pastor Morris commented: “She prayed, and you know who she prayed to – She prayed to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, who is a merciful, compassionate God. Never give up, God is working!”

NOVEMBER Praise God for the testimony of this lady about the power of persevering prayer.
PRAY DEEPER that she may indeed be a means of teaching younger women to pray without ceasing for their unsaved loved ones. Praise God that He has wonderful promises for those who do not give up seeking Him.
