“Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice,
and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.” 1 Sam. 15:22 NLT
A note from Dr. Melissa Caudle who is an American author best known for The Keystroke Killer saga.
“Last night, I prayed over my mother as she slept. I wasn’t selfish in my prayer, rather I lifted her and her team of doctors up. That’s when I heard a voice in my head that said, “What about you?” I at first thought I was losing my mind. Then I replied, “What about me?” That’s when it hit me, I needed prayer too. I know that if you ask, you shall receive and to pray specifically. The problem with that for me last night was that I didn’t know what to pray for other than my mother. So I simply asked God to bring something or someone into my life to help me support my mother and my sisters through this difficult time. I needed to hear or read something to find peace in my heart. I fell asleep to the sound of my mother’s oxygen machine.
When I woke up this morning, she felt a little better, but no where near where she needed to be. She ate a little breakfast, then went to sleep. That’s when I checked my email and discovered a message from one of my authors who I had helped by the name of Willie Smith. The message was very simple and direct asking me how my mother was doing and he informed me that he was praying for us. Then, he sent me a link to something that he wrote years before hoping that it would bring peace and comfort to me. Wait!!! Did he say peace? Wow! God answered that prayer quickly.
