This may not be a prayer
but it is all about prayer; about prayer and
faith. Since I have no better way to express my
gratitude, I wish to share these words with you:
us have had their doubts. Many of us have had
lives with intermittent periods of doubt and
faith and in as far as grey cells are responsible
for those doubts, intellect - from my perspective
- may be a malady rather than a remedy.
years I have not prayed for many of the things
that people often pray for, for I have mainly
prayed for more faith. Since faith cannot be
purchased, since it has no price and since it is
free, I experienced my prayer as humble and as if
I wasnt asking for much...
And so I
have prayed for faith. For years and years I have
prayed for more faith.
past few months some incredible events have taken
place in my life and all of those events have
added immensely to my faith. After years of
praying for faith, God has answered my prayers in
His very own way, for rather than just sending me
that faith, He poured out an overwhelming
waterfall of events that gave me that faith
whilst in the process fulfilling some of my
dearest and most secret wishes that I most
certainly would never have dared to pray for.
many of His gifts are still unfolding to the
meanwhile increased perceptiveness that my
strengthened faith has given me, I was driving
along a highway yesterday whilst thinking about
it occurred to me that in giving me all that
faith that I had prayed for (and possibly more)
God had in fact given me a free eternal life
insurance. Can you imagine! Not a life insurance
but an Eternal Life Insurance...
dont even have to pay a cent for the policy!
was...all those years...believing that I was
praying my most humble prayer and thinking that I
was asking for something that was free and that
thus I wasnt asking for much whilst, in
fact, I was praying for something that has no
price because it is absolutely priceless...
that it sounds awfully inadequate but what else
can I say but
