I have been taught that in the work of the Lord, there are no coincidences. It may take us time to figure out why certain things happened, but I know that in time, things will always work out. I know that if we go to God in prayer, He will never let us down. I am 17 years old. I was raised a Baptist and I’ve always believed in God and prayed every night. I usually prayed for others; I rarely prayed for myself.
Several months ago, I got into a really bad accident and totaled my car. As a result of my accident, I suffered from serious back pain. I got really depressed. I also needed a car for my job and things started to spiral out of control. I was upset about how things were growing so difficult in my personal life and at work. I thought about death even more, wondering why I did not die that day in the wreck. I got to the point where sometimes I wished that I would have died in the accident. That’s when I knew that I needed to ask God for help. So one night I prayed for myself. I prayed that God would help me find strength and guide me and help me get closer to Him. I also wanted to know how to just be happy. I made a promise to myself and God that I would improve my life with His help. I just didn’t know where to turn for guidance.
Later that night after I fell asleep, I dreamed that two young men in white shirts would come to my door and answer my prayers.
