Pastor Prays Over Deposit Slip, Gets $1.5M Gift

(AP) A $1 million bank deposit slip wish by a Longview minister to pay for a new church came true _ and then some. The Rev. Thomas McDaniels of LifeBridge Christian Center said a businessman, who chooses to remain anonymous, wrote him a $1.5 million check.

Members of LifeBridge, which formed in 2005, had met at a Longview hotel. Their new church opens in a few weeks.

McDaniels described on Monday how in January 2007 he took a bank deposit slip and wrote $1 million, "meaning that one day someone would give us a million dollar gift."

The minister, who prayed over the deposit slip, said a business owner Dec. 2 asked how much was needed to pay for the church.

McDaniels said $1.4 million. The benefactor's check included an extra $100,000.

McDaniels says, in these economic times, that "the Lord wanted to show his power."
