Preach the Word

Thurmon Scrivner told of a Baptist preacher who asked God why he did not see signs. God responded saying preach it and I will do it.
Well he did and God did.
That week after he preached about God raising the dead. A lady that went to his church called him and told him her husband just died in the hospital. Would he come to pray to raise him up? And he asked, “why are you asking me?” She replied, “Well you preached on it.”
As he was going to the hospital he was complaining to God that he was not ready for this. And when he got to the hospital the doctor told him to hurry up they wanted to take the dead man away. The wife wouldn't allow him to remove the body.
He got down on his knees and prayed a simple prayer just seeming to go through the motions. But after he prayed the man woke up.
