Just about everyone calls on God in times of trouble….today the story of a plane full of people who desperately needed God’s help and He answered.

Passengers on an AirAsia flight from Perth, Australia heading to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia recently experienced a terrifying situation.

FoxNews.com reports that about 75 minutes into the six-hour flight, the plane began experiencing engine failure. The aircraft began shaking like “a washing machine,” according to passengers.


The pilot manning the flight, who had been flying for 44 years, knew the situation was so bad that he reportedly asked passengers to pray. Passengers were also asked to “keep an eye on” the engine by looking out their windows since the pilot did not have a good view of it from the cockpit.

The prayers of the pilot and passengers were answered. The plane was able to get back to Perth with no loss of life and no injuries to any on board.

Social media picked up the story of the pilot asking for prayers as main stream news outlets let that part out.  One passenger posted on Instagram, along with a video showing the shaking plane… “I thought I might die….. Today was the beginning of my trip, but I’m back in Perth due to the technical issue…. Anyway, I still arrived!!! Thank you, God!!!”

AirAsia issued this statement following the harrowing incident: “Passengers were attended by our ground staff upon landing and were provided with all necessary assistance. Our engineers are taking the precautionary steps to check the aircraft.”

They still don’t know what caused the engine malfunction.
