Prayer. Christians pray, and they wait. They pray more earnestly, and they wait in expectation. It’s the last minute. Is God going to intervene?
Thirty-nine authors, 40 true stories. Forty answered prayers. Just in time.
James Stuart Bell collected stories from ordinary people who prayed ordinary prayers, and God answered their prayers in extraordinary ways, sometimes, at the last minute.
From healings to protection; from divine appointments to provision and peace, Gifts from Heaven reveals the prayer of surrender and the God who answers that prayer.
“God listens past the words of our mouths and hears the words of our hearts.” (Dorothy Haire, p. 146)
Miracles still happen today. God still answers prayer.
“Above all, I realized afresh that God is only a prayer away … He is truly a God of miracles!” (Virginia Fairbrother, p. 67)
Few Scriptures are included, but the stories live out the Scriptures.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
Jesus prayed all night, Luke 6:12 The disciples devoted themselves to prayer, Acts 6:4 Prayers were answered, miracles unfolded.
May this book inspire heart-felt prayer and devotion.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.
Father, thank You for James Stuart Bell and Gifts from Heaven. Bless him and his writing. Cause this book to prompt Christians to devote themselves to prayer and Your Word. I ask that You reveal Your work and the prayers that You have answered, so that we are more aware of You at work in our lives. Thank You, that You listen to our prayers and answer them. Amen.
