The power of prayer is often forgotten. However, a pair of faith filled teens in Florida are especially thankful that their prayers were answered.
"Two Florida teens were enjoying senior skip day at the beach when they found themselves stranded in the ocean. Tyler Smith and Heather Brown, Christ's Church Academy students who've been friends since fourth grade, were swimming off of Vilano Beach, near St. Augustine, on Thursday, April 18, when they realized they might not make it back to shore," according to reports.
The soon became weak from swimming in the waves. After a few hours, they realized they were in some serious trouble. They began to pray to God for help.
“I cried out: 'If you really do have a plan for us, like, come on. Just bring something,'” Tyler recalled to FOX 30.
Moments later, Tyler's prayers were answered. A boat in the area found the missing teens and safely pulled them aboard. The boat's name is "The Amen."
"Wagner called the Coast Guard as he took his boat, "The Amen," to their rescue. The crew, headed from Delray Beach to New Jersey, decided to go out despite the rough waves to go on an adventure. Both Wagner and the teens were thankful for that decision," wrote Fox.
The teens reportedly broke down in tears after leaning the boat and such a biblical name. It was truly a divine miracle that saved their lives. The Christian school they attend also released a stamens about the incident.
“The staff, students and families of Christ’s Church Academy are incredibly grateful for God‘s protection over Heather and Tyler," Jeanie Collins, director of marketing and development at Christ's Church Academy, said. "Thank you to Mr. Eric Wagner, captain of the 'Amen' vessel that rescued our students, for your action and compassion!”
