Praying for our donors is part of The Salvation Army’s ministry

Submitted by on March 9, 2012 – One Comment

Salvation Army Major Pamela Garder and her husband Clay lead our work in Concord, California, located in the East Bay.

This week Major Pam received an unexpected phone call.

The voice on the other end of the line was a woman who’d donated through the mail to the Army in Concord.

On the remittance form she filled out to enclose with her check she had marked the box requesting prayer and said, “cure my cancer.”

Major Pam considered it a privilege to pray for her and dropped her a note to let her know. She calls it a “Prayer-o-gram” and she sends one out every time she prays for one of her donors.

She hadn’t even remembered making the request on her donation form, but she wanted to call and speak to the person who’d prayed for her, thank them, and let them know how God had answered.

Here’s the story in Major Pam’s own words:

“She had been suffering with cancer throughout her body and recovery was uncertain – her doctor didn’t even give her much hope.

She is a believer and she knew it wasn’t time to just give up: it was time to fight back with prayer and to trust in God for her health. This was her certainty during an uncertain time.

God healed her completely and her doctor was astonished, he had never seen anyone’s body so consumed with cancer transformed back to health again.

What a blessing to have a total stranger call to say thank you for praying for her and share such incredible news!”

It truly is our joy to pray for you whether you’re a donor, volunteer, board member, employee, friend, etc. Feel free to send me a request and let me know how we can be praying for you.
