Voice of the Martyrs; Shatter the Silence reports that in a remote village in
India several Christians were taken by force by eight fanatic Hindus to the home
of a Hindu "mother." They were ordered to heal her of her polio-like illness.
The leader of the Christians stated that since the weapons in the hands of their
captors indicated they intended to hurt them if they failed then stated they
were not afraid to suffer and die for their beliefs if the Lord chose not to
heal this woman. But then he added they were privileged to have the opportunity
to pray that God would show His love and healing power to man, even those who
mistakenly believe in the Hindu gods. As they prayed the leader felt heat in his
hands. Clearly the power and presence of the Lord was there. After the prayer it
wasn't long until the woman stood on her feet healed. During the prayer a Hindu
god toppled of the "god shelf" and was irreparably damaged. That day the angels
and those Christians rejoiced over nine new converts added to The Book Of Life.
