16- Year Old At The Auction Block

This story, a historical fact, is told about a black woman who was in trouble many years ago in the days of slavery. Her 16-year-old daughter was about to be sold on the auction block.


The mother bowed her head and prayed, “Dear Lord God, if You were in trouble as I am in trouble, and I could help You as easy as You could help me, I would do it!”


A U.S. senator was present, along with his 15-year-old son. When he saw this girl being pulled away from her mother and he saw their tears, he ran to his father and said, “Daddy, loan me $10!” The senator gave him the $10, and the boy ran to the auction block.


Before anybody else could start bidding, he said, “I will bid $10.” (Ordinarily, $200 would have been a low opening bid, but everybody was so thrilled at what he was doing that nobody else would bid.)
The boy bought the girl for $10. Taking the Bill of Sale, he marched right over and handed the girl back to her momma.


God heard and answered that prayer. She had said, “If I could help You as easy as You could help me, I would do it.”


I’ve told about that dear old black woman’s prayer more than once, and I have followed her example and have gotten results. I just say, “Lord, if You were in trouble like I’m in trouble, and I could help You as easy as You could help me, I would do it.” And He does – He does! Because He says in His Word,
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.” (Psalm 91:14)
This God who is more than enough says, “I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him.” (El Shaddai, Hagin, Kenneth, P. 22)
