Air of expectation filled the building as people shuffled to find a seat before the service started. Suddenly a determined woman discovered R. W. Schambach, the preacher, getting ready for the service. She quickly got up to a place where she could intercept him. “Preacher” she said holding out some candy in her hand, “You have to wear this candy in your pocket as you preach today.”
“I don’t wear candy” the preacher said, “I have a handkerchief that I will give you at the end of the service.”
“No,” the woman insisted. “I have had prayer clothes from you, Oral Roberts and from TL Osborne. You see my sister has been in a mental institution for 30 years. They intercept the mail and my sister never gets the cloths. I know they will give her the candy.”
The preacher agreed to take and wear the candy as he preached. When the service ended, he gave it to the determined lady.
Three weeks later the lady got a call from the mental institution. “Come and get your sister” they said.
She asked, “Why has she died?”
“No,” was the answer. “We have done every possible test on her and she is completely normal.”
The sister had taken one bite of the candy and all the demons fled from her. She was completely healed. This lady went on to live a normal life and was able to work because her sister never gave up! (From R. W. Schambach: “Miracles” pp. 117-119.)
Have you been praying for a loved one for a long time without seeing any results? Don’t give up! Be determined like this lady was not giving up even after many years of prayer. She got the answer! God has the answer for you too!
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Rom. 15:13, NKJV)
