Wow, Scott! Amazing story indeed! I had a similar thing happen to me a few weeks ago... My girlfriend and I were sitting on her couch one evening just talking, and the sore throat from my cold started coming back. I was finding it hard to swallow and talk, and soon, I sort of just kept quiet. My girlfriend knew what was wrong, and without my knowledge, she started praying for my sore throat. I had been trying to avoid swallowing to avoid the pain, but about 10 minutes after she started praying, I swallowed, and the pain was gone!! I asked her, "have you been praying?" and she said yes. WOW! I was just totally amazed! Indeed, the power of prayer is strong, and you will be in my prayers, Bob.
