For this reason I am telling you whatever you ask for in prayer, believe -trust and be confident – this it is granted to you, and you will get it. Mark 11:24
One day, while at Trader Joe’s checkout line, I noticed my coin purse was full of pennies. I thought these pennies are worthless, and making my purse heavy. I thought, “Who wants to count all these pennies out while others are waiting in line at the store. When I go outside of the store in the parking lot I’ll just get rid of them…they are more valuable to someone in need.”
Outside of the store I grabbed all those pennies and tossed them up in the air as high as I could as if I was throwing them to hit heaven. Pennies went everywhere. I thought this is like raining pennies from Heaven.
I heard the Lord speak very clearly right then, “Pick one up,” so immediately I did. As I stood in the parking lot He spoke again to me. He said, “Read it”. I read: In God We Trust.
I knew right then He was getting my attention. He was talking to me. I looked at the date it was the exact year of my child’s birth.
This changed my life.
Now, when I’m out and about, I look for those pennies on the ground. It’s like a treasure hunt for me. I pick it up and I thank the Lord for my answered prayer. My heart is always so deeply touched and enlarged by His Love for me.
And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and believing, you will receive. Matthew 21:22
I started a penny jar for my kid’s prayers. It sits on the mantle of my fireplace where I can see all those beautiful prayers being answered. My jar is almost full. I guess it’s time to get a bigger jar, cause there is always need of prayer….and into the jar it go’s. My jar is full of answered prayers.
I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be a blessing.Psalm 37:25-26
Char Fransz was born in Inglewood, Ca. She is the youngest of four, with fifteen years apart. Her parents moved to South Bay, when she was in 6th grade. She was a bleached blonde beach girl.
At the young age of 13 Char accepted the Lord at a Bill Gather crusade. However, the prime moment came for Char in 1980 at the age of 30, After many trials and adversities, she discovered the Father’s Love, and gave her heart, soul and everything to Him. This was the beginning of her ministry. Her desire since then has been to set the captives free, through prayer and intercession. In the spirit, she loves to hear the chains and shackles fall to the floor while ministering to others.
Char became a hairstylist after high school. She worked for 15 yrs. in the beach area. She loved doing hair, where she could use her creative side. Char has three children (ages 24-33) and one two year old granddaughter.. She married her best friend, and husband for life 26 years ago, and with his three children, “we became his, mine and ours”. The children are all currently married and serving in the church.
Char and her husband are now empty nesters. The Lord gave Char a heart for broken women. He trained, equipped and poured into her. He healed and released her so that she could do the same for broken-people. He has used every wound, hurt and broken piece for His glory to glory. Not one piece of her story is unused, but redeemed!
Looking back, Char has discovered that, “I’ve been in good hands all along.” Char’s favorite saying is “I’m not retired, but Re-fired ”
