More than prayed for.

You are His Child – Be specific in Prayer

            I remembered the teaching after driving many kilometre’s into the forest, I stopped to let our border collie dog run down the long lonely road,    

             As I hurried to join her for our walk, I accidently shut the car door behind me without removing the keys. 

               I began my walk.     I prayed. ‘Father, I need your help.  Please will you help me to find a strong piece of wire.’   I remember I also added ‘it would be helpful if someone could show me how to unlock the car door with it.’      A-Men.    Thank You.    

              We walked for a long time, but I did not find anything to help me unlock the car.

               Approaching the car, a roaring sound behind me caused me to turn around.     

              A helicopter skimmed above the road behind me. A megaphoned voice shouted. “Move your car!      Move your car!  We are burning the forest undergrowth!  Please move your car NOW’. 

              I waved back and after ensuring the terrified dog was safely on her lead, yelled. ‘ I can’t! My keys are locked inside!’ 

           He said something, then turned his machine up and disappeared into the distance.    

           A few minutes later a huge red fire truck pulled up beside me.   Six burly firemen  tumbled out ready to offer support.

            However, it was a teenaged trainee who quietly said, ‘I can fix this.’   Out of his knapsack he produced  

                                                  A piece of fence wire.     

         To the surprise of us all he then with precision and expertise broke into my vehicle.  

          I drove away to well-remembered shouts and cheers.

What an answer to prayer on that day.  I asked for a piece of wire.  I received a helicopter, a fire truck, six firemen, a young man and a piece of wire.  

           Thank you, Lord, for all your answers that surprise us.   Abundant Grace.

            Have a wonderful day as you FOCUS ABOVE!


About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
