God Answers Prayer

I pray specific Scripture for missionaries we know. Recently one told me “I want to do what I do because of love.”

For five years I have been praying this: “Let their service be motivated by love. Help them to obey your command to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all you mind and love your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27).

God answers prayer.

 

A Stranger’s Generosity

I made a new friend in our building’s laundry room last week. I had loaded a huge pile of wet clothes into a dryer, then realized I had no money. A woman noticed my dilemma, held our her laundry card and said, “Here, use mine!”

Her generosity reminds me of God’s, who gives good gifts to people who don’t yet know him.

“Before they call, I will answer”  (Isaiah 65:24).
