With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: An answered Prayer?

An answered Prayer?

Our pastor (a dear friend) had stopped by for a visit to talk and listen and encourage us concerning a prolonged valley we have been walking through. We had just prayed about the huge mountain before us asking the Lord once again for some indication that we were in His will even though the way is hard. Our pastor had left and my husband walked out to the mailbox before leaving for an appointment. He rarely sings but at this moment he had a song in his heart. Deciding to open the windows to cool the car before his departure he turned the keys to start the engine so he could lower the electric windows. The radio is usually tuned to news radio but this day the dial was set to a Christian station. As soon as the ignition was started the very words that he was humming to himself streamed from the radio...

Saviour, He can move the mountains,

My God is Mighty to save,

He is Mighty to save.

Coincidence? I don't think so. We choose to believe it was a gentle reminder of God's love and power to encourage us.


Mighty to Save
by Hillsong

Everyone needs compassion,
Love that's never failing;
Let mercy fall on me.

Everyone needs forgiveness,
The kindness of a Saviour;
The Hope of nations.

Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.

Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

So take me as You find me,
All my fears and failures,
Fill my life again.

I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in,
Now I surrender.

My Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

Shine your light and let the whole world see,
We're singing for the glory of the risen King...Jesus (x2)

My Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

My Saviour, you can move the mountains,
You are mighty to save,
You are mighty to save.
Forever, Author of Salvation,
You rose and conquered the grave,
Yes you conquered the grave

What an awesome story! I love to hear all about the fingerprints of God. That's how I think of things like that. Just one more little touch, one more fingerprint left in our lives from His mighty hand.

Thanks so much for sharing that ~ it blessed my heart. I'll be praying that the road up the mountain ahead is a smooth one for you.

PS. Love this song! Now I'll be humming it for a while. : )
