The woman in the hospital bed beside which I stood seemed to be near the end of her life. She had suffered a severe stroke and was in a deep coma. Her heavy breathing added a sad background to the sorrowful scene. I prayed for her, but with little faith. Everything seemed to be so settled and final.
One week later, however, she came out of the coma and was soon back at her farm home busy about her housework. Visitors there found her as positive and thankful for daily blessings as before her illness. God had granted her more years to serve Him and she was not surprised. Her additional time to live provided this woman of prayer many more opportunities to speak to others about her Lord and His love.
