This last week my 80 year old mother laid at deaths doorstep. With 2 failed attempts to go through her legs to reach the blocked arteries that were starving her heart of life giving blood ther seemed little hope that she could survive much longer.She was so bad that she couldn't even get out of bed without crushing pain and shortness of breath.
After a couple of days the Doctors decided to try once more to reach her heart throught the leg. I went to her the night before with little hope and the realization that I probably would not have her very much longer. As I have many times before I took her hand and said "Mom let me pray for you." So I prayed but I still had very little hope. As the Dr. said "an almost impossible situation."
The next day - SUCCESS! She has been home for 2 days and is up making her own meals and living her life as if nothing ever happened.144:2.4 "Which of you who is a father, if his son asks unwisely, would hesitate to give in accordance with parental wisdom rather than in the terms of the son's faulty petition? If the child needs a loaf, will you give him a stone just because he unwisely asks for it? If your son needs a fish, will you give him a watersnake just because it may chance to come up in the net with the fish and the child foolishly asks for the serpent? If you, then, being mortal and finite, know how to answer prayer and give good and appropriate gifts to your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the spirit and many additional blessings to those who ask him? Men ought always to pray and not become discouraged
If I come before God with a humble heart and an honest one I know that he hears my prayers be it with silent words of the heart or on my knees with vocal words or holding hands with the woman who gave me life. Sometimes the answer is no, somtimes the answer may be years down the road of life and sometimes it can be immediate. I do know that He always hears and that praying to our Father is never in vain.
Back to my Mom -
"Oh me of little faith"
Love to all,
