My daughter Liza came home one night not aware that
she had lost her wallet. That was on Sunday
night. When she woke up the next day and could not find her wallet, she became very upset
and called her mother to tell her. My wife Esther called me and informed me about it and I tried to call
Liza to check the details with her. She
didn't pick up my call at first but later called me up to tell me what had happened. I told her to try to look for it again and I called Esther and asked her to
help when she comes back from work.
next day (Tuesday), she told me that she wasn't able to find it and agreed that
she may have dropped her wallet somewhere. Her bank cards and student card and IC were in
the wallet. This caused all of us to be very concerned. I fetched Liza from her school that day and told her to make a police report which we did on the next day, on Wednesday night.
We had our cell meeting that evening and I
knew in my heart that God is directing me to pray specifically for breakthrough
concerning the lost wallet, for CWAM
ministry and also for every house especially our household. After our cell meeting and all the prayers of thanksgivings
and petitions we closed the meeting and we went inside our bedrooms. When we heard a knock on the door, my wife Esther
opened the door and met an off duty officer who was returning
Liza's cards and ICs in an envelope which he found near our block.
We then praised God for His awesome and immediate answer to our prayers! I am convinced that God touches hearts and He did not only touched the
heart of the one who picked up the wallet who did not throw away the important cards but put them in the envelope, but that God pre-destined the honest officer who found the cards instead of other people that might have used the cards illegally.
Most importantly, I believe that God touched my heart to pray for
breakthrough in our family, and God did show us the importance of praying
and receiving answers to our prayers.
It touched my spirit deep enough and it increase the
faith that God placed in my soul. God knows every situation that we encountered and will come in our lives and He increases the faith of His people. Prayer and Trust is of God and He enjoys seeing
His people obey His call to pray.
