The Cry Of God's Children

As the Mazurek family was having devotions, the six-year-old Bobby suddenly cried out, "Daddy! Daddy! Pray for the people in the boat!" Immediately, the father thought, What people? What boat? Who are we talking about? Nevertheless the family prayed for the people in the boat, believing that if God had spoken through a child, someone, somewhere was in trouble. Their earnest response was to pray for them.

What the family did not know was that two missionary families, the Corrells and the Kingswriters were on the banks of Lake Malawi in Tanzania when suddenly they were attacked by killer bees. Every uncovered part of their bodies was a target. Delmar Kingswriter struggled to get the boat started, while Norm Correll started half-dragging, and half-carrying the helpless women and children to the boat.

Then, suddenly and without explanation, the attack of the bees stopped, and the bees disappeared as quickly as they had come. A missionary doctor later told the group that even one or two stings give enough of the poisonous venom to kill a person.

At the very time the Mazurek family knelt for their evening prayer, the missionaries in Tanzania were being attacked by killer bees. How do you explain all of this? It's impossible apart from God and His Holy Spirit, who spoke through the boy. These strange circumstances were confirmed and documented - even to the hour the Mazurek family prayed for the unknown needs.

More things are wrought by prayer than this world ever dreams of. When God prompts you to pray, pray! Someone's life may depend on it.


They will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.  MARK 16:18
