The summer of 2009, my in-laws took a mini vacation to South Florida. During this trip my healthy 80 year old father-in-law became deathly ill. Papa couldn't eat anything and had severe abdominal pain. After shopping with his family, he went back to the motel room. He became extremely cold and was losing consciousness. His wife called the ambulance and they rushed him to the hospital. The hospital admitted him and put him in a special care unit. Papa doesn't remember a lot of what happened at the hospital as he was in and out of consciousness. When we went to see him we were shocked. He face looked ashen and he looked like he was dying. He was diagnosed with E coli which can be extremely fatal to the elderly. Everyone thought that this could possibly be the end of Papa's journey. That night, before we left, we started to pray for him. We had just joined hands when a minister from our church assembly in Orlando, just "happened" to be in the neighborhood and came to pray for him also. We all joined in prayer. As we prayed the prayer of faith we could feel the presence of God fill the room. The prayer of faith was prayed and instead of declining and possibly dying, like the doctors thought, Papa began to improve. In a couple of days he was feeling better and released from the hospital. This Memorial Day, Papa is still alive and thriving. As a family, we are thankful for the miracle working power of God.
