Recently a friend told me about a bleeding ulcer on his leg that had been a problem for six months. It wasn’t healing; no new skin was forming and thus he lived in fear that at some inopportune time the bleeding would begin again—and it did, several times.
One evening at dinner he was telling a friend about his problem. An acquaintance at a nearby table heard his story, and upon leaving the dining room stopped by his table and said, “I will pray for you.”
The next morning when the visiting nurse came to change the dressing she startled my friend by exclaiming, “Oh my goodness, I’ve never seen anything like this. I’ve never seen such a marked change in such a short time. Look at all the new pink skin that is finally forming. Healing has begun. It’s a miracle.”
