One Woman’s Miraculous Survival in Icy Crash Proves the Power of Prayer is Real

Whether you’re traveling for holiday gatherings or just doing your daily commute, be mindful of these safety steps.

As harsh winter weather hits the nation, roadways become especially dangerous and, in an instant, the usual commute can become a life-threatening nightmare.

One woman in Indianapolis experienced this danger first hand, and it’s her prayer to God and her perfect execution of emergency crash protocol, and the Indianapolis Fire Department, that saved her life that night.

“Oh, I am so thankful,” said Karen Snyder. “It is absolutely a miracle that I survived.

Snyder’s car was one of two that hit a patch of black ice and slid off the road into a frigid pond on Monday night. “It was like I was on a sled and there was nothing I could do,” Snyder explained. “And I’m a really cautious driver.“

As if slipping off the road isn’t terrifying enough, what happened to Snyder next sends most crash victims into total panic: The car began filling with water, and Snyder was filled with indescribable fear.

On that dark, freezing night, Snyder didn’t know if anyone had seen her go off the road. She had no idea if help was coming, or if she was going to drown in her car.

Then, her miracle happened.

“I just started praying and calling out to God,” Snyder said she was listening to a radio program about angels when, surely not by coincidence, she found herself in desperate need of one.

It’s then that Snyder, suddenly filled with God’s peace and guidance, did exactly what Indiana State Police and other nationwide authorities say to do in the event that you find yourself trapped in your vehicle in water: open the window to escape.

“I was so full of fear. But God helped me to stay calm,” Snyder said of her miracle that night. “I just cannot tell you how glad I am to be here.“

While Indiana troopers say you don’t need to swim and can simply climb atop the vehicle’s roof until you are rescued, Snyder swam to the banks of the pond.

Thankfully, Snyder and the others in Monday’s accidents became a cautionary tale rather than an obituary. Their actions and the impeccable response of the Indianapolis Fire Department can serve as a life-saving example to all of us as ice-coated highways increase with the rapidly approaching winter.

Not long ago, four Indiana state troopers demonstrated for citizens how to escape through a sinking car’s windows in just moments and then stay on top of the car and out of the frigid water to await rescue. This lifesaving technique clearly worked for Snyder and the others.

“If you sit here and call 911, you drown in your car,” said one trooper involved in the demonstration.

Instead, police urge motorists to remember these simple steps: seatbelt, windows, children, out. Unbuckle seatbelts, open windows, and kids and adults escape out the window and onto the roof of the car.

If kids are in the car, the oldest and strongest should be helped out of the vehicle and onto the roof first, where they can help hold onto younger children, including babies, before adults can finally begin exiting the vehicle.

Whether you’re traveling for holiday gatherings or just doing your daily commute, be mindful of these safety steps and remember to trust and ask God for your safety each time you get behind the wheel!

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it.  Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place. Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us?  For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle.  For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence. For many, however, their faith is their rock.  They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement. Such is the case today in Argentina. Monica Aramayo was in San Salvador de Jujuy in Argentina when she noticed the holy figure shining through the thick clouds Social media user Mariela Romano said: “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready. While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.” The photo has to be seen to be believed. https://twitter.com/faithdefender/status/1128809009153097728 The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil. https://twitter.com/OtravelAI/status/1082513665700507648 And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…
