A Miracle: Urgent Prayer Request Update!
November 2, 2008 by hsaxton
So close to Election Day, I thought you might appreciate this gentle reminder of the amazing power of prayer.
Two days ago, I received this request from Theresa Garcia at “Apostolate of Hannah’s Tears” on behalf of her friend Marie de Gessler.
I am asking you for your special urgent prayers. Many of you know that in Mexico the new conservative president has declared a war against the drug cartels. Because of that the drug dealers cannot do their business as “usual”. Now in order to keep with their expenses they are kidnapping people left and right. Many people that I know have been kidnapped at gun point and some of them have been beaten or kill.
My brother’s boss an honest hardworking man with 3 small girls was kidnapped last night. They are asking for a big ransom.
Please include him in your prayers, they really can use them his name is Felipe (Phillip)
Today I received the following update from Theresa:
My dearest friends!!!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU AND THANK YOU! PRAISE THE LORD! I cannot believe it, but I know that you people out there PRAY. Late last night Felipe was released! THEY CANNOT BELIEVE IT! They still cannot believe it! My brother said that he was like a small boy scared and SO EXCITED to be home! Still in shock. I am so happy because I know that sometimes they keep the hostages 30-40 days until they get all the money. My heart is so full of gratitude. May God bless all of you for your prayers. Miracles are happening! Mariley
