Police say his decision to pray and not let fear overtake him resulted in an axe-wielding suspect leaving him alone after an attempted carjacking in the city’s downtown area on North Seventh Street, KMOV reported Sunday.

The suspect, identified as Romel S. Taylor, 37, was charged with first-degree attempted robbery and felony robbery regarding two unrelated incidents. …

Taylor is accused of holding up a large axe when approaching the victim, who was getting out of his car. When the suspect allegedly told the man to give him his keys, the victim did something surprising.

He asked Taylor if he would consider praying with him there in the street, and when he began lifting up a prayer, Taylor reportedly turned and walked away, according to charging documents in the case. …

Father God I understand Israel will win this war. I pray today more about the war in America , its current administration, is promoting war, and dividing your people. Pray Americans wake up to the trickery, and question the deceit. Rally your people please Lord, we are at your mercy. Release those imprisoned unjustly, and bring clarity to all of the wicked politicians in control.

Thank You LORD for this man’s courage.

Lord, I pray that You incinerate the lies of the enemy and of darkness and use the ashes to fertilize Your Truth throughout Israel, America, and the world to bring Your great light to the nations. Thank you, In Jesus name.

Thank you Jesus that Your very Presence changes the atmosphere. What an example this man is that he did not let fear rule his situation. He chose faith instead. Glory to God.

Jehovah Nissi – …as Moses held up the rod of God, he was praying for the success of the Israelite troops below him. Moses’ lifting up of the rod can thus be seen as a picture of intercessory prayer. “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16). Moses’ weariness, evidenced by the lowering of his hands, illustrates the truth that “the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Mark 14:38). The naming of the altar Jehovah-Nissi is a reminder to believers of every era that we can only be victorious as we honor the name of the Lord and rally to Him as OUR BANNER. https://www.gotquestions.org/Jehovah-Nissi.html

…this little article moved me greatly…..I found a little additional info…

Dear Heavenly Father, Romel Taylor is a dangerous man. But You know the origin of all his chaos and how far he continues to fall. You say, “Is not My word like fire”—this is (YOUR) declaration—”and like a hammer that pulverizes rock?” I pray today, You will move on Romel and all others who are in the grip of lawlessness. I pray You will speak Your Word personally to inflame and break through their stoney hearts. As for the faithful robbery suspect, as he rallied to YOUR BANNER, as his faith is on display, I pray blessing upon blessing in his life. Incredible story pointing to The Incredible God, Jehovah Nissi. I ask this and so much more in the Name of Jesus Christ, in Holy Spirit Power and all for Your glory Lord. Amen
