In 1944 a Baptist missionary visited an evangelical meeting where Lydia’s father, John, was in attendance. John was moved by the missionary’s message and felt convicted to pray for his son-in-law, Prasada. He prayed earnestly that Prasada would truly come to know God and step into a better life with Him. John felt the Spirit of God with him as he prayed and indeed, that very night, God was moving in his son-in-law as well.
As Prasada fell asleep, the Lord spoke to him: If you were to die tonight, where would you go?
Prasada had resisted long enough. That night, he dropped his armor and repented with tears of contrition. Prasada gave His life to Christ, and it wasn’t long until Lydia did too. John’s prayers were answered.
Earnestly, Prasada began telling others what He now believed. In his first month of walking with God, Prasada converted 40 villagers to Christianity with his preaching.
