Mary Mabry is known around her Dallas community for her prayerful spirit and helpful attitude.
One woman in particular, Natalie Davis, has a special connection with Mabry, whom she said became a “spiritual mother” to her after her own mother’s death six years ago.

The connection the two shared seems providential.
Mabry, a member of Christian Chapel Temple of Faith, recalled during an interview with WFAA-TV feeling the “spirit of God” speak to her following the death of Davis’ mother. She said the Lord “told me go be with Natalie,” adding, “I don’t drive, but I was determined I was gonna go, even if I had to take the bus.”
Mabry’s obedience to God’s call was an answer to Davis’ prayers.
“She is a prayer warrior and she just has a beautiful heart,” said Davis. “[She’s ] always giving and always serving. That’s the spiritual gift that she has, to serve people.”
Despite her inward joy, though, Mabry was reluctant to smile because of her bad teeth. So when the opportunity came, Davis nominated her mentor for a Little Wish, a charity sponsored by WFAA-TV and the local Sam Pack Auto Group.
Mabry won — and Davis shared the news with her during a Zoom video call last week.
Davis told her “spiritual mother” she had won a $4,000 gift card to cover the cost of new dentures — an unexpected gift Mabry said came hours after she began praying God would provide for just that.
Clearly taken aback and fighting tears, Mabry said, “I had just declared to the Lord that I will have dentures. I just made that declaration unto the Lord in prayer, and look what’s happening.”
“I prayed about it, because there were so many medical bills, and I’m thinking, ‘How is this going to happen?'” she continued. “But, I believed it was going to happen, and this morning it happened. My prayers have been answered.”
“I can’t wait to smile,” the overjoyed Mabry added.
What an incredible testament to God’s faithfulness in our lives. We are thrilled for Mabry.
