Praying With Your Eyes Wide Open

  • Dr. Jerold Beeve hadn’t uttered a serious prayer for more than 20 years. But when an anniversary vacation to Fiji turned into a long-term mission project, that all changed.

    A highly experienced ophthalmologist, Dr. Beeve was horrified by the lack of eye care in Fiji that allowed many—even children—to become unnecessarily blind. He and his wife, Dorothy, immediately made plans  set up a clinic on the island. But how could they afford all the additional equipment and its transportation? Could they rely on the IRS to approve their 501(c)3 request at the last minute? And would the United States ambassador to Fiji ever answer his phone?

    Just when Dr. Beeve began to question his calling, he decided to pray. Within days everything fell into place with perfect precision.

    That was only the beginning.

    When the irreplaceable instrument needed for surgery broke, when an emergency caused siblings Beni and Sally to require prompt attention in the States, when Dorothy lay hours away from death—the Master Surgeon taught Dr. Beeve a life-changing lesson: always to pray with his eyes wide open.
