Welcome to the Whyte House Family Spoken Novels podcast episode #230. Today we are reading chapter 24 of the novel “The Unspoken Prayer Request” by Daniel Whyte III with Meriqua Whyte.
Cries of joy and sighs of relief came from Aubrey’s side of the courtroom as the jury’s foreman read the not guilty verdict.
“Good job,” Charles McGuinness said as he shook Quintin Rodney’s hand. “Are you up for another debate at our lawyer’s conference next week?”
“You bet,” Mr. Rodney said.
Destinee Roberts and her friends stormed out of the courtroom.
Mrs. McIntyre hurried over to hug Aubrey. “Let’s keep in touch, Aubrey. Remember to keep your eyes on the Lord and He’ll see you through everything.”
Mr. Rodney shook everyone’s hand, but Mother Jamison gave him a motherly hug of appreciation. “Thank you so much, Mr. Rodney. Thank you so much. We know that prayer changes things.”
“You are more than welcome, Mother Jamison. Prayer sure changes things.”Turning to Aubrey he said with a smile and a firm handshake, “May God be with you. Now you go get some much needed rest and I hope our paths will cross again, but not like this.”
Aubrey could only offer a smile of appreciation as she returned his handshake while blinking back tears of joy.
Looking back at Mother Jamison, Quintin Rodney said, “I know what prayer can do.” He picked up his suitcase and exited the room.
The following week at Wednesday night prayer meeting, Mother Jamison and Aubrey sat quietly in their pew reflecting on the blessings of God on their lives. God has been good to us—very good to us despite a difficult situation.
The church family rejoiced with Mother Jamison as she shared her original unspoken prayer request that her daughter would come back to the Lord, start attending church again, and get back to serving God, and how God brought it about. “It’s somewhat unfortunate how God answered this prayer, but we can rejoice because my daughter is back in church tonight, two of her friends got saved in the process, and even though her husband died, we know that he is in Heaven right now.”
“Praise the Lord!” Pastor Ashton said. “Welcome home, Sister Aubrey. God truly answers prayers.”
A round of applause with ‘Amens’ and ‘Praise the Lord’ followed as Mother Jamison gave her daughter a hug.
“I am here as a witness that I know what prayer can do. My brothers and sisters, don’t faint in prayer, don’t give up on God because God is still in the business of answering prayers. His business is slowed down when we don’t bring our prayers to Him and leave it with him.”
“Yes, folks,” Pastor Ashton said supporting her statement. “We know what prayer can do, don’t we, Mother Jamison?” Amens could be heard all over the auditorium as the choir struck up the tune.
I know what prayer can do
I know what prayer can do
I know, I know, I know what prayer can do.

Now, dear listener, please know that God—the divine Author of all things—wants to write a great story with your life as well. But first you must give Him the pen by trusting Him with the life He gave you and surrendering your heart to Jesus Christ as Savior. Here is how:
1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”
3. Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” The Bible says in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
4. Accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
5. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
6. With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”
May God bless you until next time.
