Actions don't always speak louder than words. Eva Jiron found a way in which words elicit the most powerful action of all. Believing in the power of prayer, Eva called out to the when a close friend and tenant lost her job. Taking matters into her own fingertips, Eva typed out a thoughtful prayer hoping that her call for help would aid her friend in need.
People and prayers united, and within two days, Eva's friend had been given a miraculous answer: the company realized it owed her some back pay and the money would be enough for her to get back on her feet. Eva told me she wasn't ever worried, her own life experience told her that an answer would come from prayer. A few heartfelt words became the action that changed a bad circumstance. What an inspiring example of trust in a power greater than any problem!
