The calendar said this was Valentine's Day, although everyday of their married lives he tried to show her why she was chosen for him and he for her. He thought of her as he raced home, each red traffic light was like a reminder of how he wished he could stop her pain. The sadness had started with the loss of her mother and then the death of a dear friend. She tried valiantly to pull herself up, but he saw in her eyes the tears that were not shed. She said she was fine, just needed some time and everything would be like before.
As he pulled into the driveway he thought "Lord, help me to help her." He grabbed his gifts and went into house expecting to see her in bed where he had found her of late. The house was lit up and there were roses on the dining room table and smells of good food cooking in the kitchen. "Hi honey!" she said as she rushed to him and kissed him on the cheek. "Happy Valentine's Day, I love you so much."
He couldn't hide his astonishment at the change in her. "Honey" he said "What happened?" She said, "This morning before you left for work, you thought I was sleeping, but I heard you praying over me. The prayer you prayed was so beautiful it took me right into the presence of Lord. After you left I continued to just bask in His healing anointing. He reminded me that He came to heal the broken hearted and set at liberty those who are bruised. I know now that I was captive to depression but not anymore I am free! The Lord reminded me of a prayer that I prayed long ago that was also answered. He gave her quizzical look and she explained, " I had asked the Lord that when he sent my mate that he would be a praying man and in times of trouble he would pray our way through. So for that I thank Him this Valentine's Day for you and answered prayer."
