Our son had driven our car to the airport and we were taking the El to pick it up. My husband said, “I hope Jonathan remembers to leave the parking ticket in the car.”
I responded by praying, “Lord, make Jonathan remember the parking ticket.”
Immediately Paul received this text: “The parking ticket is on the dashboard.”
We were making breakfast together, so I asked my 4 year old granddaughter how she slept. She said, “I woke up once.”
I asked, “What did you do when you woke up?”
She answered, “I prayed that Aunt Sarah would have a baby.”
My granddaughter Emma told me, “When someone is sad I ask God to put his hand on them.”
That’s powerful teaching. God’s hand is mighty (Psalm 89:13).
Thank you, Amy, for teaching your daughters to pray.
My mother taught me to pray. Here’s the advice she gave when she left me in charge of my five younger siblings for a week:
“Any problems — pray. The Lord will help miraculously if we only believe.”*
*Mom wrote this more than 34 years ago. I have found it to be true.
He had every reason to be angry and bitter. His brothers expected revenge.
But Joseph said, “Am I in the place of God? You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good (Genesis 50:19-20).”
Forgiveness follows faith.
His master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord caused all he did to succeed (Genesis 39:3).
The Lord was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison (Genesis 39:21).
Consider the blessings of walking with God.
I live in the spirit of prayer; I pray as I walk, when I lie down, and when I rise, and the answers are always coming. — George Muller
