A little full-of-faith prayer from a little child can turn the tide! “And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receives me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hang about his neck and cast into the sea!” – Jesus said it and he meant it. God bless these humble policemen.
I was out today as usual witnessing and tracting at some school, and I ran into many interesting people. Two people received the Lord and one of them was a German man who came to faith in Jesus. I just showed him two passages, John 1:12-13 and John 3:3-10 about being born again. It grew his faith instantly. he was so ready. Nice guy too. A new brother!
Then I ran into a Local man and his son, and I told him that God loved him after I had given him a tract, but he said that he didn’t think so.
I asked him why. He said, because the last 20 years he’s had nothing but problems. I asked him what his problems were, he said that for example his back had been hurting in his spine for 20 years.
I asked him if I could “bless” his back. (euphemism for praying for it)

Five times as many Americans in 2014 reported that they never prayed as did Americans in the early 1980s, and nearly twice as many said they did not believe in God.
