Touching Incidents and Remarkable Answers to Prayer

by S. B. Shaw


This 19th century book contains a collection of stories about how God has answered prayer in people’s lives. For the sympathetic reader, the stories can comfort, inspire, and warm the heart. In times of trial, this book reminds Christians that God never forgets to care for the abandoned, the old, the sick, the young, and the persecuted. At the same time, though, Shaw’s accounts show that God may answer prayers in ways people do not expect, as in one account in which God rescues a little boy from domestic abuse by sweeping him up into Heaven prematurely. Shaw’s title does indeed capture the ethos of his book: touching and remarkable.
