One day, there was a pedestrian walking on the side of the road minding his own business. He was listening to music on his phone and wore earphones. He was unaware of the reckless driver coming his way, speeding hundred kilometers per hour in a sixty zone. The driver didn’t see the speed bump ahead and tried to avoid it by driving with one wheel on the pavement. But he didn’t see the pedestrian on the side of the road and hit him so hard that his leg was almost torn off. The driver drove away and didn’t look back to see if the man was hurt.
The pedestrian was hurt badly. He almost lost his leg and was bleeding to death. He couldn’t move because of the pain.
Along came a good guy. He saw the pedestrian and thought he would stop and help. The good guy is a dedicated Christian and thought he would serve him with prayer … While the pedestrian was still bleeding, the man knelt down and started to minister: ‘Good day, my friend! How are you today? Do you know Jesus Christ? You know Jesus can heal you from all your pain right this moment.’ (For the record: I know Jesus heals all kinds of illness and pain, but bear with me till the end of the story). The good guy continues: ‘I’m going to pray for you and I want you to pray with me in your thoughts.’ First, he led him in a repentance prayer and then prayed for healing. After his prayer he said: ‘I’m a member of the church just around the corner and we have a healing service this coming Sunday. It would be great if you can come. Here is a card with my number on it. You’re welcome to call me any time for prayer or just a chat. Brother, I’m going to leave you now. I have somewhere to be and I can see you are tired of all the pain and bleeding, so I’ll leave and you can get some rest. God bless.’ And so the man drove away, feeling pleased with his ministry.
