Twenty-six Guards  

Here's a message that will bring you chills. Have you ever felt the urge to pray for  someone and then just put it on a list and said, "I'll pray for them later?"  

Or has anyone ever called you and said, "I need you to pray for me, I have this  need?"  

Read the following story that was sent to me and may it change the way that you may  think about prayer and also the way you pray.  

You will be blessed by this.  

A missionary on Furlough told this true story while visiting his home church in  Michigan.  

"While serving at a small field hospital in Africa, every two weeks I traveled by  bicycle through the jungle to a nearby city for supplies.  This was a journey of two days and required camping  overnight at the halfway point.  

On one of these journeys, I arrived in the city where I planned to collect  money from a bank, purchase medicine, and supplies, and then begin my two-day  journey back to the field hospital.  

Upon arrival in the city, I observed two men fighting, one of whom had been  seriously injured. I treated him for his injuries and at the same time talked  to him about the Lord.  

I then traveled two days, camping overnight, and arrived home without  incident.  

Two weeks later I repeated my journey.  

Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man I had treated. He  told me that he had known I carried money and medicines.  He said, 'Some friends and I followed you into the jungle, knowing you would  camp overnight. We planned to kill you and take your money and drugs.  

But just as we were about to move into your camp, we saw that you were  surrounded by 26 armed guards.  

At this, I laughed and said that I was certainly all alone in that jungle  campsite.  

The young man pressed the point, however, and said, 'No, sir, I was not the  only person to see the guards, my friends also saw them, and we all counted  them. It was because of those guards that we were afraid and  left you alone.'  

At this point in the sermon, one of the men in the congregation jumped to his  feet and interrupted the missionary and asked if he could tell him the exact  day this happened.  

The missionary told the congregation the date, and the man who interrupted  told him this story:  

"On the night of your incident in Africa, it was morning here and I was  preparing to go play golf. I was about to putt when I felt the urge to pray  for you. In fact, the urging of the Lord was so strong, I called men  in this church to meet with me here in the sanctuary to pray for you.  Would all of those men who met with me on that day stand up?"  

The men who had met together to pray that day stood up. The missionary wasn't  concerned with who they were, he was too busy counting how many men he saw..  

There were 26.  

This story is an incredible example of how the Spirit of the Lord moves in  mysterious ways. If you ever hear such prodding, go along with it.  

Remember that tho the storms of life may rage & stir things up, cause chaos and at times many hurts, etc...In the end, It can unearth the most beautiful of treasure! Keep Holding on to Jesus thru the storm & He will indeed show you the beauty of life after its all settled & peaceful, Its His Plan!
