LONGVIEW, Texas (AP) - A Texas pastor's prayer for $1 million to
pay for his congregation's church building has been answered
The Rev. Tom McDaniels, whose Lifebridge Christian Center meets
in a Longview hotel, says he took a bank deposit slip and wrote $1
million on it almost 2 years ago, then kept it and prayed over it.
Last week, McDaniels says a business owner asked him how much
was needed to pay for the church. The pastor said $1.4 million. The benefactor then wrote a check for $1.5 million.
The church, which has been under construction, can now open debt-free.
McDaniels says he believes that in these economic times, "the Lord wanted to show his power."
