Sometimes as humans we may fall prey to the question, “Does prayer really matter?” The answer is clear … YES, IT DOES! We may not always be able to witness the answer to those prayers firsthand, but at other times God allows us that joy. Recently we had opportunity to pray for the young adult brother of a Delta flight attendant as a viral infection was attacking his organs. The prognosis was not favorable. In talking with a co-worker, one of our FCAPers learned about the situation and asked us to pray. We have been doing so now for several months.
Our FCAP friend did not personally know Christopher’s sister, but kept abreast of the situation through a mutual acquaintance. As our friend was leaving the Delta Block Party in Minneapolis on Saturday, she overheard someone talking with Edward Church at our FCAP booth there about how gravely ill her brother was. Our friend turned back and asked if she would happen to be Christopher’s sister, to which the lady replied, “Yes.” Our friend told this fellow flight attendant how both FCAP and her church had been praying for Christopher. With a smile on her face, the lady replied that he is now home and being cared for by their father. “Praise the Lord” was the response from both. The flight attendant went on to explain how her brother is basically emaciated and needs nourishment to gain strength. If you have not already heard about Christopher through our FCAP Prayer Network, we invite you to join us in prayer for him. Meeting Christopher’s sister at the Block Party was truly a divine appointment. Our friend is grateful for that … so are we.
