College Student Praying Over Deputy Goes Viral
When we love one another, America becomes stronger.
Two strangers proved that in Florida thanks to a chance encounter and willingness to express their faith.
Tonight was a night that I will never forget. This picture is a reminder of God’s constant love and perfect timing….
Justine Tucker was eating out with her husband, Cameron – a deputy with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office – when Juan O’Neal approached them. O’Neal is a student-athlete at nearby Stetson University who often posts about his faith.
O’Neal felt compelled to talk to the Tucker’s, and asked if he could pray over Cameron to invoke God’s protection.
“After crying my eyes out we got to have an amazing conversation with this gentleman,” Justine wrote on social media. “He was on FIRE for God and you could feel His presence in the room.”
Once Justine posted the image of O’Neal praying over her husband, it caught the attention of others and has been liked over 47,000 times and shared another 23,000. Several major media outlets also covered the unique social media story.
“Tonight was a night that I will never forget,” Justine wrote. “This picture is a reminder of God’s constant love and perfect timing.”
