Heaven Was Bombarded.

In 1969 when I was thirteen I woke up on morning for school with the worst headach I had ever had in my life. Momma let me stay home that day an it got worse as the day went by. I had never hurt like that before as all I had to do way move my little finger and it was like sombody was beating me to death with a hammer. Momma knew this was more then just a headache and called the doctor and explained what was going on and he said get him here NOW !! The doctor took me right in and within the minute's I was in an ambulance on my way to Holy Cross Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. The doctor said that I had Spinal Meningitis, it could be spread very easy and I was put in querentine and at first nobody was allowed to see me. Spinal Meningitis is very dangerous and can cause you to loose limb's of your body or death. Right off the bat mom and dad contacted our minister who also hit the phone and I was put on every prayer chain through out many church's. Mom and dad along with other family member's stood outside my room and prayed. Heaven was being bombarded in prayer.

The doctor ordered a spinal tap to draw fluid from my spine to confirm the memingitis and it came back possitive. Mom and dad were finally allowed in to see me but they had to get all dressed up like a doctor going into surgery so as not to catch it. All this time the prayer chain was growing and I could hear those standing outside the door holding a prayer meeting. It was getting late in the day and the doctor said that all they would be doing over night was to watch me and that a specialist would be there in the morning to look at me. Mom and dad were not allowed to stay in my room and since my brother and sister's were home alone the went on home for the night.

I did not get much sleep that night with the nurse's running in and out all night checking on me about every hour. The next morning when I woke up I was hungry since I had not had anything to eat the day before and soon realized somthing else also, my head didnot hurt. They brought me in a tray of liquid breakfast and I wanted nothing to do with it and the nurse's got a kick out of me telling them that I wanted a cheeseburger and french frie's. Soon momand dad and people from the church showed up and I got fussed at over the cheeseburger thing, I could not even go to the hospital without getting into trouble. Well I cant remember now what time that the doctor showed up but the first thing he did was have then draw more fluid out of my spine and send it off to the lab. I could still hear them outside my room praying while we waited for the result's. I guess it must have been about an hour later when the test result's came back, Negitive, 100% Negitive with no sign what so ever of the meningitis. Well while the doctor's were trying to figure out what happened I heard that prayer meeting out in the hall turn into praise the lord meeting. They brought my parent's in and tried to explain thing's, which they could'nt. My father stopped them and told them that you can choose to believe in what you want but that heaven has been bombarded around the clock with prayer's for my son and that God had not only heard the cry's of his children, he answered them.

The doctor's being doctor's would not admit that God had done what they didnot have the power to do, but had to admit that it was nothing that they did. I guess that was as close as you would get with them. They found no reason to hold me anylonger and released me to go home. I never had any more problem's after that. Now you can choose to believe as you choose but as for me, I am proof of the power of prayer. I am proof that when God's children bombard heaven with their cry's, that our heavenly father hear's those cry's. Even if had just been one person praying for me that day God would have heard. Yes I believe in the power of prayer and anytime the need show's up, I hit the prayer chain and heaven get's bombarded again. To this day I would have loved to been a little mouse in their break room to hear what those doctor's REALLY said in private about what happened.

It was not bombarded but it was smoked! The Burning of inscence in the Old testament is symbolic of our prayers going up to Heaven so if it is like inscence and they smoke it was smoked! (smiles)<br />
It is written:<br />
"Let my prayer be set before you as incense"<br />
"The smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel`s hand."<br />
"And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints."<br />
AMEN<br />
Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.<br />
<br />
Now, If we only do it!<br />
<br />
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.<br />
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.<br />
for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.<br />
A Preacher of God once said; <br />
Lot's of prayer is lot's of power.<br />
Little prayer is little power.<br />
and no prayer is no power at all.<br />
it is written:<br />
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."<br />
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." <br />
"we have not because we ask not."<br />
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."<br />
"In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. The peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus."<br />
"Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."<br />
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."<br />
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."<br />
"For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. "Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight."<br />
"And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him." <br />
"But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord."<br />
" But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."<br />
"And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."<br />
" And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full." <br />
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Thank You Snookybear. And you have been added to my prayer's. God honor's the prayer's of his children.

Glory be to God and HALLELUJAH.My wife and I need all the prayers you can spare. My stepson is out of control. It is a long story. Please keep us in your prayers.

Thank You Mydarkbrneyes. I know that the hand of God was in that hospital and know first hand the power of prayer and faith. And so did my doctor's, admitted or not.

Thank You Sweetness0169. I will also add you onto my prayer's.

wow, thats a very interesting story! thanks for sharing. I've been running low grade temps for almost 2 years now.. I am going to ask my church to pray for me, that they go away, since no doctor has been able to figure out why they are even happening. I hope that your doing well. Thanks again for sharing
