Then God empowered two young girls with supernatural strength to lift a 3,000 pound tractor off their father!  God hears every prayer ever prayed. How He chooses to answer them is in His Domain.  Nevertheless, we must always remember to pray – and most of all to give thanks after our prayers are answered. “May God’s will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven. Amen!”  Pray everyday for the redemption of America’s culture and people to repent of their wicked ways.  Pray for our political leaders to repent and follow Christ.  Pray for the entertainment industry that has boundless influence over the young people as well as the education industry who right now brainwashes them to be godless, selfish, rebellious and to embrace every kind of immorality.  Pray for parents to wake up and get in the streets objecting to the stealing of their children’s minds!  Pray for the judicial system in the USA to once again discover the basis of U.S. Law — the U.S. Constitution and God’s Word upon which it was founded.  Pray constantly for America to repent, for Barack Obama to repent publicly and expose all he has done to thwart the prosperity of the USA.  Pray the media repents and asks Jesus Christ into their lives and hearts so they can be equipped to recognize and tell the REAL truth instead of scorning Biblical tenets.  (Notice in the article below who and what gets the credit.  Adrenalin and spinach.  When it is God who deserves the credit!)  ▬ Donna Calvin ▬ Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Jeff Smith and his daughters Hannah, 16, and Haylee, 14


[Luke 17:12-19]  And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: [13]  And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. [14]  And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. [15]  And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, [16]  And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. [17]  And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? [18]  There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. [19]  And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.


LEBONON, Ore. – When two girls lift a tractor off their dad, it makes headline news, even if the town is 20 minutes away from town. Sources say two Oregon teens saved their father’s life by lifting a 3,000-pound tractor off his chest after being trapped underneath. In their small town of Lebanon, they are being hailed as heroes.

According to an April 10 KSN report, Jeff Smith was out doing work in his garden on April 1 when something went terribly wrong.

“I had reached for the shifter and boots and lots of mud on them and my foot slipped off the clutch,” explained Smith of his 1949 Ferguson tractor, which flipped back and pinned him underneath.

No one was around with his sight, but he screamed for dear life, hoping someone could hear him. Luckily, his daughters, 14-year-old Haylee and 16-year-old Hannah, who were walking their dog at the time, heard their father’s scream.

Moments later, they arrived and saw the Oregon man trapped underneath the heavy piece of equipment. Without thinking about it, the two girls lifted the tractor off their dad high enough for him to wiggle free.

“He was just laying in the dirt underneath the tractor, and he was just screaming. He would not stop screaming, said one of the man’s daughters.

Thankfully, their dad survived the ordeal. And while he sustained a broken wrists and a heap of bruises, the man credits his daughters for saving his life.

Even he couldn’t believe how the girls managed to muster up enough strength. Not surprisingly, in the past, many reports surfaced of people having super-human strength in times of distress.

Thanks to an adrenaline-rush and caring daughters, the two girls were able to life the heavy tractor off their father.

Perhaps, the missing piece of information has something to do with eating their daily spinach?

He said he was losing breath with each scream, but his daughters heard and ran to him.

“I was saying, ‘God help me’ over and over because I obviously could not lift it myself. It was heavy,” Haylee said.

A neighbor finished the job by using his own tractor and its shovel to lift the Smith’s tractor and allow Smith to get his arm out.

Jeff survived with a broken left wrist, cuts, bruises and a profound appreciation for the strength of his daughters.
