Prayer in a Beer Cooler

A testimony that came out of the Joplin tornado on May 22,2011. 24 people huddled in a beer cooler in a convenient store. Everything in the area was leveled to the ground, except the beer cooler. In the cooler a few people offered up some desperate prayer and they were heard.

Years ago in Joplin, Missouri

On a calm May day

A tornado paved its way

An F-5 in all its fury

People took shelter in a beer cooler

A few people to Jesus prayed

As the walls around them swayed

The destruction could not be crueler

Endured the F-5 roaring sound

But the cooler was left standing

Everything else leveled to the ground

When they emerged and looked around

I'm sure they gained understanding

Answers to prayer today still abound
