Has to make you wonder about the putative influence of prayer, etc.

Considering the fact that it had stood since it was built in 1908, I'd say it was doing the Lord's work pretty well! Besides, the prayers were probably on behaph of people, not to keep trees from falling on the church!

That tree probably had two ways to fall, either across a road or the church ~ it chose the Church ~ there must a hidden answer there......... Could be, the fact that Tree felt and tired and saw a chance to let go!
