There are prayers that God always delights in answering. One is the prayer for the salvation of others.
Exactly 30 years ago, I was pastoring a church in the small town of Pendleton, Oregon—population 14,000. It was the year the Harris Pine factory shut down—and with it, most of the town.
It’s also the year we prayed, “Give us 92 souls for ’92.” Impossible for such a small community—but we baptized 93!
In 2016, we held evangelistic meetings throughout Rwanda, and the church prayed, “Give us 100,000 souls!” Again, an impossible prayer, but by the time the meetings were over, more than 100,000 had been baptized!
But this last one tops them all: Remember the amazing story of the 700 communist rebels baptized last month on the island of Mindoro, Philippines? They prayed that “each one win one” and pledged 700 new souls for 2022—and you’ll never guess what we just learned: they have already met their goal!
Watch the video where I share these amazing stories of God’s grace and be inspired! God loves to exceed our expectations—and I love it when He uses Adventist World Radio to do it!
