Proof that God hears and answers prayers

In the February 2007 issue of Guideposts magazine, an article appeared entitled "A New Trust" It is a remarkable article in that it clearly shows the Christian belief that God will reach down out of heaven to answer the most trivial of prayers. The article describes a woman whose dog is lost. She prays, "Lord, please keep Rufus safe. Help me find him.". According to the article, after praying a second time, "I heard a faraway barking." She rushes out of the house with a flashlight and immediately finds Rufus.

Her conclusion? "Proof that God hears and answers prayers."

Many readers cannot believe that this description is true. Therefore, this screen capture is provided as proof that the article described here is real.
