That’s the distance between the water and the railing of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Kevin’ knew as he dangled on the railing at the last minute that no he didn’t want to die after all. He tells God on the way down. He hits the water at 75 miles per hour. 1 gulp of air at the last second. He needed that air to make it back up to the surface. Hard to do with 2 broken legs. He’s happy he survived the fall. However he sees something below him coming up toward him. He’s thinking shark for sure. People nearby see something else. A harbor seal that looked like it was trying to help him out. The seal and him stayed together until harbor rescue ship got to him. Now he educates others that are pushed to the brink. This happened over 20 years ago.
So, God heard him on that railing and granted him his wish. That’s how fast God can grant a prayer. Events were put in place immediately up to and including the harbor seal. It worked for Kevin. It can work for you. Hopefully not as drastic as his situation. Despair? Hit a brick wall, try turning to God. He’s listening.
