We had been attending classes each morning at our
, and were busy studying
most afternoons. The days and nights
were full of activity and excitement. Bible
Once a month there was a week of special services in the afternoon and evenings and Robert and I had volunteered to work in the prayer room.
This meant we would get home late after praying with those who had come forward for Salvation or to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
By evening we were tired and sleep was to be welcomed.
One night about 2:00 AM our telephone rang and I grabbed it quickly hoping it had not awakened Robert. “Hello,” I said. There was silence on the other end and heavy breathing.
“Hello,” I repeated, but all I heard was the heavy breathing. In exasperation, I said, “It is late so please go to bed and get some sleep.” Then I hung up the phone.
“Who was that?” asked Robert. I told him it was a prank call and no one had said anything, except me.
The next night around the same time, the phone rang again. This time, I told Robert that it was his turn to answer the phone, which he did.
Robert hoped to scare the living daylights out of the person, so he told him, “We have a trace on this phone and will know who you are in three minutes, so I suggest you hang up and never call us again.” Robert heard a click and decided that took care of it and it did.
No we did not have a tracer on our phone, but Robert used a trick to trick the person trying to trick us.
I prayed that whoever the person was that he would recover himself from what ever was driving him to make such calls.
Are you ever aroused from sleep in the middle of the night, not by the telephone, but perhaps God is calling you to pray for someone in particular.
It might not be a long prayer, but do heed the call, because you will know the call is from God asking you to pray, and he trusts you to follow his leading.
