Pastor stops gunmen in church by praying for them.

Four men wearing masks and carrying guns entered a church in Ferguson, Missouri during a Sunday morning service, and the pastor of the church, Marquaello Futrell, also a former member of law enforcement, noticed something was off about the four men immediately. He quickly spotted their weapons, remained calm but still took decisive action. Pastor Futrell, not wanting to cause alarm, told his staff to lock the church's doors and call officers. Then the pastor stops the gunmen by approaching the four of them during the service, asking them why they attended that morning's service.

Next, the pastor asked all four of the men if it was OK to pray for them. All four of them agreed and then members of the congregation can be seen gathered around them, praying for the four young men.

Church prays for armed gunmen.

Pastor Futrell, with his instincts, prayer and God, stopped the four men from inflicting violence upon those in the church. It was later learned that the four men were wanted for two convenience store robberies that took place just hours before the church service.

What a powerful clip that shows the power of prayer, God and a pastor who was quick on his feet! God has his hand of protection over the people in that church.
