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!

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
