Miss Clara suggests that Elizabeth should not give up on her family and encourages her to pray for tony (Rick Clifton, 144). Time by the time Elizabeth complaints to Miss Clara about her husband tony saying he is not a good husband and that they can’t keep their marriage. Miss Clara kept encouraging Elizabeth and sometimes told her that tony is not her enemy and that she should pray and ask the Lord to save her marriage. Miss Clara shows Elizabeth a particular closet in the house, which she uses to pray Miss Clara call that closet a war room by saying, "to stand up and fight the enemy, you need to get on your knees and pray." The quote encouraged Elizabeth, who started to pray for her husband. Elizabeth developed a plan of prayer to fight the battle by creating a war room to pray for her household, mostly her husband. Also, Miss Clara's actions, like scaring aware of a thief who wanted to rob them by telling the man to leave them in Jesus' name, left Elizabeth astonished and also strengthened her faith. Miss Clara and Elizabeth met severally in which Miss Clara used most of the time, encouraging Elizabeth using gospel. At one instance, Miss Clara told Elizabeth about forgiveness and said to her that if she wants victory, she must surrender and forgive her husband. Miss Clara told Elizabeth to destroy the real enemy, which in this case is the devil, not Tony using prayer. It was hard for Elizabeth at first but with time engaged in prayer by thanking God for his blessings and giving God her problems.

By the time Elizabeth started praying, tony was not around as he was on a business trip. During the business trip, tony had dinner with a beautiful lady who afterward invited tony to her apartment. As they were about to leave and go to the woman’s house, tony become nauseous and run to the bathroom to throw up. Elizabeth's prayers started working in the restaurant when Tony got an upset stomach, which made him ran to the men’s room and also didn’t go to the woman’s apartment but instead went back home. Elizabeth cleaned her closet and set it as her war room. Elizabeth wrote notes about the things she wants to pray for, including the list she had made about things that tony does to annoy her. Danielle found her mum cleaning and asked her about the closet, then Elizabeth said she wants to use it to pray and fight. Sometime after the business trip, tony is fired from his job because he was accused of stealing some drug samples. Some

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
