Madison Heights, MI, Prayer is so very critical for every part of our lives. St. John Chrysostom so wisely stated, “Prayer is the place of refuge for every worry, a foundation for cheerfulness, a source of constant happiness, a protection against sadness.” As we’ll see in today’s story, it is exactly what is needed.
The following report comes to us from evangelist Michael and from our National Office team in Warren, MI:
I was shopping for supplies for my work, and was in line to purchase them. The woman waiting in line in front of me had a mask on. Our cashier and the woman that bags the groceries, in an effort to make conversation, asked her why she was wearing the mask…perhaps assuming it was a response to the recent Corona virus scare. The woman responded that it was because of her cancer, probably because her immune system was weak from chemo and catching any virus would be very hard on her. The cashier told the ailing woman to think positive, that the power of positive thinking is often underestimated.
When it came time to purchase my items, I commented on their conversation affirming that positive thinking can be good as Jeopardy host Alex Trebek had been promoting recently. However, I said having a positive outlook and prayer together are very important. They both seemed to agree, and hopefully a small seed was planted. It’s important we share with everyone how much good prayer can bring to any difficult situation. God can help fix a difficult situation we’re struggling with, or maybe he will simply give us peace to accept it as it is. Either way, prayer is always a good response to any situation.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
