This family and community’s response in the face of tragedy proves the power of prayer, the necessity for hope, and trust in God that makes provisions for miracles. Melanie Pritchard’s heart stopped, and that’s when some serious intercessory prayer started. A slew of medical professionals at two different hospitals, including her very own brother, joined together to save this woman—while family and friends got the word out to anyone and everyone they could to pray for Melanie’s healing and complete recovery.
The Day I Died - Finding Hope in Suffering allows the reader a close look into the hearts and minds of Melanie’s family members and close friends as they face the prospect of losing someone they love dearly. The suffering they experienced then and the pain since has been very great, but what has become even stronger is a deep sense of hope that has continued spreading.
Melanie’s story quickly went “viral” on cyberspace, hit the airwaves, and attracted attention, and, most importantly, prayer cover from around the world. An amazing sequence of events only God could orchestrate transpired to bring about true metamorphosis in one woman’s body, mind, and spirit while instilling hope in people far and near with a renewed sense of faith in the Lord.
You won’t want to miss this heartfelt account of how the Lord used significant suffering to bring about His greater glory in time and eternity!
