In 1998 my father suffered an aortal aneurysm and was given a 10% chance of survival. While in the hospital, I went to the chapel to pray. In the chapel I spoke to God saying, "Lord, I was always taught that prayer is a dialogue, not a mononlogue, so I'm asking you to let me know whether or not my father is going to live or die, and I will not leave this chapel until I hear from you." I sat in a chair, crossed my arms, and waited for His reply. About 15 minutes later, a man and a woman entered the chapel. The man asked if they could pray with me. Of course, I said, "Yes, please." He started praying, and then abruptly stopped. He looked at me and said, "The Lord said that your father will live. All He askes is that you do three things. First, anoint your father with this oil I'm giving you. Second, pray for each person in CCU. Third, fast and pray for three days. At that, I fell to my knees and cried, thanking them and thanking the Lord. I did exactly what was told to me, and miraculously, day by day, my father got better and better. When he was moved to a regular room, his doctor told him that his recovery was nothing but a miracle because no one survives such a massive aneurysm, especially without surgery. I KNOW the two people who prayed with me that evening were angels sent by God. Over ten years later, my father is still here and has never had any further problems with his heart. Never doubt the Lord your God. He is worthy to be praised!! Thank you again, Lord!
