On the median of the Northway after an accident

What’s up all,

It was one of those weird traffic nights on the Northway (87) after work. I’d get up to about 40 mph then slow down to a complete stop. It’s the type of traffic that you hope the person behind you is not messing with their cell phone. (It happened on this stretch)
I stopped and the person behind me wasn’t paying full attention for some reason and hit me. Thankfully there wasn’t any significant damage. During the process of getting his info we got to talking about what he does for a living, where he was going, how he was doing, etc.

I felt that God wanted connect with this guy somehow and knew I didn’t have much time, so I shifted gears to focus our conversation on God expecting something would happen. I straight out told Him that God has shown me how amazing and how real He is and that I’ve been trying not to take meeting people for granted. I asked him if he had any faith in his background and he told me he was Catholic. I followed up and asked “If there was one thing I could pray for him about, what would it be?” A little taken back he thought for a moment and told me his girlfriend is going through some stuff and to keep her in prayer. I pushed it another step further and asked if he personally had any injuries or issues with his body; he said he has had a long time nagging knee injury and was currently experiencing pain. So I said “Cool, let me pray for that right now, Jesus is amazing!”.

Just the prayer topic was totally new and unexpected for him, then add on the fact that we were standing in the median of a major highway with cars flying by, it was a very unusual situation. Taking that all in consideration he still said ok, so I grabbed his hand and prayed for healing, as I finished a cop pulled behind us. As I started walking towards the cop I told him to check his knee out and pay attention to how it feels. I told the cop we were all good so he went back to his car. I went back to the guy and asked where the pain was on a scale of 10 to 0, 10 being what it was and 0 being no pain; in complete amazement he said it was a 1. With the cop still parked behind us I said let’s pray again; I grabbed his hand again and started praying, than put my hand on his knee and completed praying. He assessed it again and said it was completely gone and that He felt a warmth in his knee during the prayer. He was blown away.

I took the opportunity to let him know what this mean’t and why the healing happened. That He is Gods kid, and that He loves him way more than he knows, that he doesn’t have to go to someone else to communicate with God and that He wants a real relationship with Him. We parted with a thanks and God bless.

Thank you Jesus, you are truly amazing! You keep me in awe.

My prayer is that this story is an encouragement to whoever reads it, that you assess where you are and know that God is real and ready to take you on an amazing journey. He is the same Jesus to me as He is to you. Just take the step to seek Him.

Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
