please pray; thanksgiving for protection 
9th-Feb-2006 03:02 pm
Hi all. I just wanted to ask your prayer. This past Saturday my family was involved in a head-on collision. We were on our way to the library heading south and a young man (who lives only 2 blocks from our house) heading north skidded on the icy road and crossed over the middle line and crashed into our car. I saw it coming and we were able to get over to the right lane and slow down a little before he hit us. We thank God for his mercy and protection and to be alive. We thank God that all 3 of our boys had their seatbelts on. Please pray for the healing and recovery of our older 2 boys. Joe, who is 10, had to get stitches in his forehead; our 7 year old Matt's whole left side of his face swelled up immediately. The paramedics had both of them in neck braces and strapped to stretchers for fear of neck or spinal cord injuries; but the CAT scans and x-rays for them and myself all came back negative. So we thank God for that; it could have been a lot worse. Jamie and Luke, our 5 year old, were ok. Through this so far I was able to witness to my mom and 1 of my sisters, telling them how our lives could be taken any moment and that we have to be ready to stand before the Lord. I was able to share with both of them at length the way of salvation. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to work in both of their hearts and show them their desperate need for the Lord. Please, Please pray the Lord would give us many more opportunities to witness to other family members, friends, and neighbors through this. We pray God would use this "accident" for his glory and purposes, especially the salvation of souls and whatever other purposes He would have.

Thanks to God that you all got off lightly (more or less). If the old UBF boss still lived, he would have made a marvelous horror story out of this.

Praise God who was with you and your children and rescued all of you from the head-on collision!! Praise God who has enabled you even in this situation to witness to your mon and your sister!! I think we can all say that God is good.

In Daniel 3, God protected his servants Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego from the blazing furnace. These servants of God put into this blazing furnace because of the jealosy of his enemies. But God was with them in the blazing furnace and protected them from the blazing furnace. The fire could not harm their bodies, nor was a hiar of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. What you wrote about the head-on collision reminded me of the God of Daniel in Daniel Chapter 3.

I think the stiches on Joe and the swollen face of Matt are the reminders of God's grace that God who protected Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego from the blazing furnace in Daniel 3. I am positive that God could have protected them completely without stitches and swollen face. But then the boys might think that head-on collisions are nothing but a lot of fun. But no parents want their children to think like that, right?

But I am very much sure that Samuel Lee would interpret them as signs of God's punishment against those who leave UBF if he were still alive. Just read all his horror stories. I think Samuel Lee was a devil.
