“Lord, steal my heart …” Pastor Alexander Shevchenko spoke about the prayer that saved him from despondency

Pastor Alexander Shevchenko is 47. On his birthday, he told how he 30 years ago kneeled in a park in Sacramento in prayer before God . God heard his prayer and today he is a truly happy person.

“Today I am 47,” Pastor Alexander writes on his Facebook page. -“I am a truly happy person. This is not self-hypnosis and not a happy coincidence. If the Lord had not heard my prayer when i was 17 years old, then by my age today, despondency would have eaten me up with giblets. I know this for sure.

I remember how 30 years ago, in one of the Sacramento parks, I knelt down, and then completely lay down on the ground and said: “Lord, steal my heart! Kidnap my heart without a trace! Otherwise, thousands of lusts and temptations will pull me to pieces and by old age I will have nothing to collect. Of all my desires, I single out one: steal my heart forever. ” God heard my prayer! All these years He has been my Source. I always enjoy spending time in His company. From His presence, I receive all my decisions, sermons, projects and an atmosphere of love.

And also thanks to God, my paths crossed with many wonderful people who became my friends and co-workers in the ministry for many years. Thank God and thank you all dear ones! “
