Twelve Destin area pastors and city leaders embarked on a spiritual journey on the Gulf of Mexico's waters to end the oil spill crisis that is now threatening their shores.
They gathered aboard the Innkeeper for a trip out into the Gulf to pray that the gushing oil would stop and that any oil coming their way would dissipate, reports the Destin Log.
“As we were praying, two dolphins came to the front of our boat and escorted us for the next 30 to 45 minutes. We saw at least 10 dolphins encompassing the Innkeeper. We said the dolphins were the oceans ‘angels’ that were assigned as our escort. Oddly enough, once we stopped praying, the ‘escorting dolphins’ disappeared," Pastor David Butler of Faith Assembly Christian Church told The Log.
Pastor Paul Kummer of Grace Lutheran Church in Destin told The Log said they are waiting for "God to give creative wisdom to BP and authorities how to solve this and for God to heal the Gulf waters, so that the only oil on our beaches is suntan oil."
