Remarkable Answers to Prayer


Mrs. C. Chipperfield, of Springfield, Ohio, sent us, in 1887, an account of several very clear and definite answers to prayer for the supply of temporal needs, received during her Christian experience of about ten years, during the greater part of which time she was a widow; and added:

“I would like to tell you how the Lord mercifully saved my boy from death. While I was on my knees praying for him, I was strongly impressed that some evil was about to happen to him; and while in earnest prayer for him the burden was lifted, and he was saved from a terrible death. In crossing the railroad, where there were many tracks, in trying to avoid one engine he was knocked down by another, and dragged a distance of a block or more; but though his face and hands were terribly lacerated and filled with coal-ashes, yet not a bone was broken.

This was about eight years ago; and the next morning there was an article in the paper under the heading: ‘A Most Miraculous Escape.’ And when the railroad men tried to explain to me that it was because the road was so smooth that he was dragged along; or if the ties had been above the ground he must have been crushed, I said: ‘No, but God heard his mother’s prayer.”
