Woman Hit By Lightning While Praying

Lord...give me a sign that I...BAMM!!

Worried about the safety of her family during a stormy Memorial Day trip to the beach, Clara Jean Brown stood in her kitchen and prayed for their safe return as a strong thunderstorm rumbled through Baldwin County, Alabama.

The Lord works in mysterious ways. However, the Lord, like the rest of us, does take a few days off at times.

But while she prayed, lightning suddenly exploded, blowing through the linoleum and leaving a blackened area on the concrete. Brown wound up on the floor, dazed and disoriented by the blast but otherwise uninjured.

I'd say your prayers were answered. What the answer meant, I don't know, but an answer it was nonetheless.

She said 'Amen' and the room was engulfed in a huge ball of fire. The 65-year-old Brown said she is blessed to be alive.

...and the Lord saw fit to burn my house down. Amen.

A family member said he will no longer assume it is safe to be indoors during a lightning strike.

He will now spend stormy nights in the tree in the yard.
