A missionary was surrounded by tribal enemies. Miraculously, none of them harmed him. Later the leader of the tribe became a Christian and told the missionary that they had not attacked him because of the twenty-six white warriors surrounding his house. The missionary stated there had been no white warriors, but the tribal leader insisted he had seen them.
The missionary went home for furlough and told the story in his home church. The pastor revealed that that night he had awakened sensing an urgent need to pray for the missionary. He not only prayed himself but also called other men to join him in prayer. Then he asked all those who had prayed to stand. Twenty-six men stood.
Thank You, Jesus, for calling others to pray when we’re in need.
“He guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones” (Proverbs 2:8).
