Operation Prayer: Part Three

The last part.

  Karlie Taylor blinked back the bright light. It was blinding, yet so refreshing. Five peering faces flashed into her vision as her eyes flickered. Finally, she recognized one face. It was Liam Rembert, her fiancé. Before she could move, strong arms were lifting her from the snow.

“She’s ALIVE!”  Liam shouted, joy overcoming his being. “She’s alive!”

“What? Impossible.” A muscular man stated, doubt etched on his face. “She and the boy have been under there for a week.”

Karlie, still overcome with shock, watched Liam feel her forehead.

“She’s not even cold.”

“I’m telling you; she would have suffocated under there. This is impossible!” The same man reached down and felt her pulse. “It’s a miracle from God!”

Liam looked into Karlie’s face. “Can you move? Is everything alright!”

“I think I’m fine.” Karlie said in a soft voice. She felt almost completely normal.

“Let’s get you two to the hospital.” Liam smiled as he lifted her into his arms.


Karlie brushed away some stray hair from her face. She gazed around. The village, that a month before was buried in snow, was bustling. People wandered from place to place. The noise of the village echoed on the mountains. The marketplace was being restored, and a new church was being built. God had used her testimony to lead the whole village to Christ. Karlie smiled. God sure did work in mysterious ways.

A week before, Ahoni had asked Karlie and Liam to come to his village for something special. Of course, they accepted. Now, they hurriedly made their way through the small streets to the middle of the village, looking for the appointed place.

“Ah, there you guys are.” The voice of Ahoni surprised them as he came up from behind. “You are just in time. Come with me.”

They followed him toward the end of the road. A white cover veiled a massive object. Ahoni stepped toward it and lifted the cover to reveal a monument. Tall and sharp-winged, the stony statue resembled a falcon. At the base of the bird statue, an inscription stated the words:

To the God Who has saved our souls

And has flown to our rescue. “For he has said,

 ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’”

 Hebrews 13:5.

Karlie blinked back tears and realized just how true that really was. God never left her or abandoned her one moment. She could rely on her God for everything. He led her to do his will, so, now she gave Him the credit for the miracles He worked.

“Why is it a bird?” Liam asked.

“Ah, because God has flown to our rescue like a bird.” He answered, then turned to Karlie, and changed the subject. “I want to tell you something. You were right.”

  Karlie’s puzzled expression led Ahoni to continue.

“You know when you said that God would either hold off the avalanche until you reached us or somehow speed you up.”

Karlie nodded.

“Well, you were right. It did happen that way. The snow stopped until you came, and I also believe that the Lord sped you up. You were here in only five minutes, but the trip here is much longer than even forty minutes. So, I can’t explain it.”

Karlie smiled. “God certainly works amazing miracles.”

The End.

Thanks for reading. I hope this story, although made-up, will help you realize that God does work miracles (even today). You just need to pray. I have seen with my own eyes God’s faithfulness, and it amazes me. Just trust Him, and He will help you in your time of need. Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.” John 16:23
