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!
