Always looking for inspiring stories to demonstrate the power of prayer,
The Presidential Prayer Team shares this amazing story in the news
today. Please pass it on to inspire others.

50 Christian truckers got together to pray to pray that somehow the
sniper terrorizing the Washington, DC area would be caught. Ron Lantz
would be retiring as a driver in a few days and didn't even live in the
area, but he felt sure that God would answer their prayers. In fact, he
told the others there that God was going to use him to catch the sniper.

A few days later he was listening to the radio as he was driving again
through the region and felt compelled to pull off the highway to a rest
stop. It was just a couple of miles from where the prayer meeting had
taken place. As he pulled in, he was shocked to see a car similar to
what was being described on the radio right there before his eyes.

Carefully trying to read the license plate, a chill went up his back as
the numbers matched. He quickly called 911 and remained there for what
he said were the longest 15 minutes of his life until the police
arrived. He even pulled his truck across the exit, there would now be no
escape for these elusive murderers. The rest is now history-the snipers
were taken into custody without incident.

Ron's testimony is being beamed around the world today. It shows the
power of prayer. And in a class act, showing his true character, when
asked what he would do with the award money, he said the half million
dollars would simply be given to the victims' families.

The snipers killed 10 and wounded 3 around our nation's capital over the
past three weeks, leaving the entire region in a state of terror. Yet
out of the great darkness has also come a great beam of light as the
world has heard a clear testimony of the power of prayer.

The Presidential Prayer Team is pleased to honor trucker Ron Lantz as
today's American Inspiration, and we strongly encourage you to share his
uplifting story of prayer with your friends and colleagues. You too can
experience the power of prayer, as we pray for the President and leaders
of our nation. Join the team at Kids can
