The lord works in mysterious ways.
Prayer saves and we know this. However, you may not have stopped to consider how literal this can be. The story that you are about to read takes place on August 4, 2013.
Katie Lentz was 19 years old at the time and she was struck by a drunken driver. Due to the damages, she was left trapped inside of the vehicle and firefighters were doing everything in their power to free her.
According to ABC News, they were running out of options and did not know what to do.
At this time, Katie made a very strange request. She asked the men to pray out loud with her. While they were praying, the most amazing thing happened. A man happened to be wearing a priest’s collar and was carrying some anointing oil at the time.
What are the odds? He asked to pray with the group and asked if it would be possible for him to anoint Katie in the car. Once he did, the rescuers said that the accident victim was much calmer than she had been. The priest said that their tools would soon work and wouldn’t you know it? They were finally able to free Katie from the car.
Can you believe it? We are struggling to wrap our minds around this one, that is for sure. The craziest part of all is still to come. There are over 70 photos that were taken at the crash site. The man that we just told you about was not able to be found in a single one of them. It’s as if he vanished into thin air as soon as the miracle was completed.
This is now known as the “Missouri Miracle” and rightfully so. No one knows who the mysterious savior was who appeared that way but we think that everyone is in agreement here, in a general sense. This was most definitely the work of God and we cannot imagine how anyone can argue that.
The Lord certainly does work in mysterious ways, doesn’t He? Thankfully, Katie was able to live to tell the tale….thanks to this mysterious Good Samaritan.
