My Personal Testimony: Proof That Prayer Does Work

I would like to share a testimony that Jesus does answer prayers. This happened today around 9 in the morning at work.

I had to take out a metal piece from each one and replace it with a kit. 


I did 13 of the Pedestals without any problems but this morning when I grabbed the remaining 6, the first one out of the 6, the bolt nut felt hard to take out.


I started to put strength on the wrench until the threads on the bolt got stripped. It just started to spin in the hole and it did not want to come out.


I tried hitting it with a flat screwdriver and hammer but nothing. It just kept spinning. For more than 30 minutes, close to an hour, it would not budge at all. It seemed at one point like it was coming out but it just fell right back to its position spinning freely like the beginning. That’s when I said to myself, “what am I going to do?”. “There is no way this bolt will come out.” I prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ to please get this bolt out but nothing happened, it just kept spinning in the hole. So, I went to YouTube to see if I could find a video showing what to do when that happens but the only videos that they had were the head of the bolt stripped and not the threads. I didn’t see any because I just typed stripped bolt and not thread but God didn’t want me to find it on YouTube. I spoke to myself and said, “I will go next door to the mechanics for them to help me.” But I said to the Lord, “I don’t want to bother them Lord, please You help me Lord so that the glory goes to You instead of them.”

I tried again going slow which I did before, doing it fast and slow. This time after I prayed to the Lord, it seemed like if the bolt was going up so I decided to stop to take a look. When I lifted up the wrench to take it out of the bolt to look at it, it just pooped out. The bolt literally jumped out of the hole that it was in. I couldn’t believe it. After crying out to the Lord, and asking Him to please help, to give Him the thanks, it jumped out. AMAZING. This is what it looks like.


I thank you Lord Jesus for your awesomeness and for hearing my prayers for help, even though it was small but for You, nothing is too small of a prayer, in Jesus name Amen.

I would like to encourage ALL believers in Jesus Christ that He listens to all of your prayers and will answer them when He knows it’s the right time so don’t give up and give Him the glory.

  1. That’s amazing SpaniardVIII. I like that despite what may have looked like a hopeless situation to you and you then decided to go to the mechanics for help shows that even we as Christians can lose sight of the One who is waiting for us to call on Him.

    Sometimes, all it takes is a prayer and letting God take the reins and that applies to any area of our life. I think it’s really important to remember to pray to God even when it seems like the situation in front of us is bigger than we can handle.

  2. Hello Don, they are put by the side of the road or sidewalk. Fiber optic cables connectors go inside to easily have access to. I appreciate your comment, Don. I think this happened to me for someone who needed proof that prayer works. We serve a Living God, Jesus Christ.

  3. You got it, Don. I’m keeping the bolt as a reminder that Jesus helped with the impossible. I tell you something, Don, I tried everything with no promise of coming out but after praying it just came out like nothing.
