Church Moment – The power of prayer


In a church in Umlazi (South Africa) one Sunday morning a preacher said,

“Anyone with ‘special needs’ who wants to be prayed over, please come forward to the front of the altar.”

With that, Sipho got in line and when it was his turn the Preacher asked, “Sipho, what do you want me to pray about for you?”

He replied, “Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my hearing.”

The preacher put one finger of one hand on Sipho’s ear, placed his other hand on top of Sipho’s head, and then prayed and prayed 
and the whole congregation joined in with much enthusiasm.

After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and asked,“Sipho, how is your hearing now?”

Sipho answered, “I don’t know. My hearing is only next Thursday.”
