Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Trouble Giving Birth

I had never believed in prayers and the existence of God until three months ago when a big miracle happened in my life. My wife was in hospital trying to deliver but two hours later she was still not able to deliver. The doctors did everything including giving her the pain stimulating drugs but no success. At last, the decided to take her to an operation but one lady in the hospital asked the doctors. An opportunity to pray for my wife and sure enough she was accorded the opportunity. No sooner had she prayed than my wife gave birth safely and within five minutes. I was shocked and mismerised and since then I started to believe in prayer and in God.
