A Baptist lady was weeping at the back of a Gospel tent in Sacramento, California. She had come in early while the men were still setting up the tent for R. W. Schambach. Schambach heard her crying and went to the back to see what the trouble was. He asked her, “What’s the trouble, mother?”
She answered, “I came hundreds of miles from San Francisco, and now I was told there will be no prayer cards for praying for the sick today! I just knew that if I could get my daughter under the tent, her eyes would be straight, but now I can’t even get a prayer card!”
“Where is your daughter?” Schambach asked. “Here, she is.” She said, still weeping. Schambach looked into the eyes of the little girl and saw two straight eyes. He asked, “You sure this is your daughter?” “Of course, I know my own daughter,” she replied. “But you said she had crossed eyes. This girl has perfectly straight eyes!”
The mother knelt down and looked at her daughter and began to shout. She didn’t need a prayer card. She grabbed her girl and began to run and shout for joy. God had taken her at her word. “I just knew that if I could get my daughter under the tent, her eyes would be straight!” That is precisely what happened!
The lady in the bible with an issue of blood also made a bold declaration, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” Matthew 9:21
God will meet us when we dare to believe Him!
