God woke her up!

I was walking through town this evening catching up with a friend of mine. There weren't many people around, but as we started down the main shopping street we saw a lady who was flat out on the floor with two man crouched around her. As we approached them we saw that the lady was not very well so we went over to the guys to see if there was anything we could do to help.

It turned out that the guys were contacts of the King's Arms Project. One of them explained to me that the lady had just had an epileptic fit. He was crouching over her to make sure she was still breathing. She looked like she was in a very deep sleep and the guy was obviously a little distressed. I asked if we could pray for her and he said yes, so I took her hand in mine and prayed that God would come and wake this girl up.

After about 30 seconds of praying that God would come and break in, the girl opened her eyes and was very suddenly wide awake! Although a little disorientated as to where she was and what had happened she was very much alive and seemingly well. The immediate response of the guy was to offer me his hand to thank us for stopping to pray. Not your regular evening in town activity, but then God isn't a 'regular' God is He!
