A man prayed for his brother to receive salvation and encounter the Lord. Then 15 years later, Jesus met him when he nearly died in an accident.
Praying For Salvation
Jonathan was a Christian who had been praying for his family to encounter the Lord for many years. He specifically asked for his brother Taylor’s salvation. One day, Jonathan’s brother was in a horrifying accident in the middle of the night.
Taylor suffered from a severe cut “on his leg down into the bone.” The deep cut resulted in a lot of blood loss, and he was losing consciousness. When Jonathan received the news, he immediately prayed to God.
The following day, Jonathan received news that Taylor’s condition had worsened. At that point, Jonathan fought in prayer and cried out to God. He also messaged the prayer warriors to intercede for his brother’s life.
A Vision From God
Then all of a sudden, he saw a vision of Taylor’s hospital room.
“I saw a light figure come into the room,” he recalled. “I don’t know if it was the Lord or an Angel of the Lord, all I know is that I saw the shape of a human being. But they were pure light and they came into the room. And I knew they were bringing relief to my brother.”
Meanwhile, unknown to Jonathan, Taylor was also asking God for forgiveness at that moment. His brother told him what he had experienced amidst fighting for his life. Apparently, as Taylor was crying out to the Lord, repenting of his sins, “a comforting hand” touched his forehead.
“How humbling to know He has forgiven me and to know I was in His hands,” Taylor wrote in a message he sent Jonathan.
Whole Family Glorifies God
In the end, Jonathan’s family witnessed God’s miracle before their eyes.
“My whole family gave glory and credit to God,” he testified. “I fell on my floor in my office today at work and I wept before the Lord in gratitude. Because I’ve been waiting for over 15 years to have this kind of conversation with my brother and with my family.”
“God is still answering prayer. Jesus is still alive. His arm is not too short to save,” Jonathan remarked.
Indeed, Jesus is alive!
