How do you know God answers prayer?
Rosalind Goforth writes, “When in Canada on our first furloughs, I was amazed at the incredulity expressed when definite testimony was given to an answer to prayer. Sometimes this was shown by an expressive shrug of the shoulders…sometimes more openly by the query: ‘How do you know that it might not have happened so, anyway?’”
The stories in this book are Rosalind’s answer to those doubts. She tells of her family’s ministry on the front lines of the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, God’s comfort and protection on the mission field, and their repeated rescue through the prayers of people at home whom God moved to pray at just the right time. Rosalind reminds us that there is no trouble too small for God, and that He loves to answer our prayers. “As truly as I delight to be sought for by my child when he is cold or hungry, ill, or in need of protection, so is it with my Heavenly Father.” She wrote in hope that you, too, will be able to say from a full heart, I know God answers prayer.
