He Always Provides
I was getting ready to pay my bills and knew I had no money to pay them. I cried out to the Lord to help me. I knew it would have to be a miracle, because a few months before, I had gone through every drawer in my room and every old purse that I had, not finding anything. After praying, I went through every drawer again. In the front of one of my drawers was $100. I cried out to the Lord in praise! I still needed more and continued to look. While looking for a receipt, I opened my wallet and found another $100. At first, I didn’t want to tell anyone because then they would know I didn’t have money and I would be embarrassed. Praise God for his mercy to me! – Sister Mary Duncan, Mesa Branch, Arizona
Moving the Hand of God
When I was 20 years old, I was in an emergency room being tested due to symptoms of neck pain with sensitivity to light and sound. My family petitioned the Church to pray for me. A sister knelt by her bed 1,100 miles away and prayed for me. When she finished praying, the gift of the
Word of the Lord was given to her saying, “Bethany has been healed of viral meningitis because of the prayers of the saints.” I technically wasn’t diagnosed yet. We were waiting for the results of my lumbar puncture when my mom received the call relaying the experience. Soon my attending physician shared his frustration because my test results were all negative although, according to him, everything had pointed to me having meningitis. My brothers and sisters moved the hand of God on my behalf that day. – Sister Bethany Dyer, Mesa Branch, Arizona
