In May we had frosts two nights in a row, temperature was 27 degrees. Our apple-trees and strawberries were in bloom. The day after the frost two apple-trees, strawberries and their blossoms were in a fine condition (see photo).
And leaves on the third apple-tree and the blossoms of the magnolia were frozen (see on photo). What was the difference?
I remembered how our apostle Daniel Rodes heard about approach of a frost and told his daughter to pray for their strawberries in bloom. When he came home after work, he decided to pray over the strawberry, and understood that somebody already prayed for it. He asked who prayed. It turned out, his daughter did it as he told her.
Their strawberries survived the frost perfectly. This example inspired me. I prayed in faith over our two apple trees on which there were blossoms, and over the strawberries, and all was good. For the third apple-tree I did not pray, because on it there were no bloom. And I had simply forgotten about the magnolia, and its bloom was lost.
My husband began to sprinkle apple-trees in the middle of day (he had heard that this way gardeners keep orange trees from frost), but I asked him to rely on God’s power and protection, he agreed, repented in not believing God, and switched off the water. We saw God’s power at work. I also photographed what became from a frost with the hosta leaves.
Glory to our wonderful and faithful Lord! He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Mat 7:7-8 KJV)
