I’m learning everyday how our God works. He is so amazing and unfathomable and He’s also simple. Sometimes, He’s so simple we miss it. Let me explain, have you ever been at a grocery store and seen a mother losing it on her kids? Have you ever seen some one acting very rude? Have you ever dreamt about some one you haven’t seen in ages, and you can’t fathom what would have made you dream of them. Have you seen a hateful bumper sticker, or facebook post? Have you felt helpless?
Let me tell you, every morning I drive to work and I pass a car that sits in a parking space along the road driving into work. On this car is a bumper sticker that saddens me every time I see it, it reads ” Nothing Fails Like Prayer”. Every time I see it I wonder how many people have passed, read it, and have thought positively or negatively about it. After so many times of getting worked up over seeing it, feeling helpless, I started to pray for the person who drives that car. So, now EVERYDAY when I pass that car, I use the sadness it brings me to fervent prayer for a soul so lost, that they would put a sticker on their car to tell the world. We cannot force anyone to believe what we believe, but we can pray for them. They don’t have to hear us, but they are defenseless against our prayers. Next time you see some one act out, you dream about some one and you can’t figure out why, you see a bumper sticker that represents the sad state that our world is in, think of it as a divine tap on the shoulder. God is calling you to prayer. Imagine how we could change the world one prayer at a time? I bet the person with the bumper sticker doesn’t know he or she is actually being prayed for everyday because of it!!
